Tritanium and fernite carbide composite foam structures were found to erode under >3 hours of continuous nanite paste flow under pressure of 90kPa. Usable nanites reduced to 50% after continuous flow.
Current fabrication methods will be revised to produce smaller foam pore size. Resulting foam will be tested to ensure suitable mechanical properties for use in starship fabrication.
Another solution to lower erosion rate is to fill the foam structure with high viscosity semi-permeable gel. Currently searching for suitable gel material.Nanite cost effectiveness
Universal nanite repair paste cost determined too prohibitive to allow for mass production of Project-derived ship designs.
Isi suggested replacing universal nanite repair paste used in the Project with enzyme-like nanites, citing reusability and lowered energy requirement for nanite function. She further elaborated on the solution as thus:
- Repair materials will be confined inside paste-soluble buckyball-like cages to bind with 'active-sites' of enzyme-like nanites during catalytic repair processes of host material.
- To ensure catalytic repair process is triggered only when required, an activation factor will be built into host material's fiber hollow structure or capsule, to be released when material suffers micro-damage. Binding of activation factor with its specific active site structure of the enzyme-like nanites will trigger the activation.
- Specific activation factor will be tailored for specific materials to be repaired. Drone repair process chain assembly and drone networking algorithm run-time lag
Running of both repair process chain assembly and drone networking algorithm simultaneously results in 20 seconds run-time lag. Codes are being examined to determine if run-time lag can be reduced though it is decided that run-time lag was caused by hardware limitation. Deniel suggested switching to ternary logic computing system to solve the run-time lag issue while maintaining the size of drone hardware. Ternary logic computing systems are used by the Caldari State and, by extension, Mordu's Legion and Gurista. Choice of hardware providers is still under deliberation.
