Project Sebestačný Work Logs

Suggestion and advice on how to further write the work logs, especially for the more techno-babble-ish parts, are highly appreciated))

Tritanium and fernite carbide foam erosion under 90kPa nanite paste flow

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.

Tritanium/Fernite Carbide foam fabrication

To solve the erosion issue and the activation factor nanoglobule isolation issue at the same time, it has been decided to switch component material from foam to fiber-reinforced composites. Carbon and silicon dioxide nanofiber matrices used as the composite material (and as nanite paste flow pathways in the case of silicon dioxide) are manufactured using nanite-assisted 3D printing techniques. Tritanium and fernite carbide powder used for component fabrication are impregnated with activation factor nanoglobules. This has solved the issue of isolating the activation factor from the catalytic nanites while also reducing the erosion rate of material caused by 90kPa nanite paste flow by 90% (contributed by the rigidity and reduced flow resistance of the silicon dioxide nanotube fibers).



Drone run-time lag

Deniel has laid off the intern and personally optimised the codes, reducing the run-time lag to 5 seconds in previous hardware. The redesign of processor architecture to incorporate more qubit transistors and for optimisation further reduced run-time lag to 1 second.

I decided that we should continue to pursue ternary logic computing systems for the drone networked intelligence. As the Guristas had already used ternary logic systems for drone control, we will attempt to reverse engineer their drone control system. However, I expect much of their drone control programs and algorithms to be confined to black box systems. Cracking them will slow development time. Perhaps I can speed things up by plundering their research sites.

Will bounce that idea off Isi, see if she's up for it.


Gripes

Still can't decide whether to use the Rupture hull or the Cyclone hull as the prototype.

Losses at Gurista Covert Site

Got greedy, lost Cheetah to Gurista security. Isi dropkicked me. Lessons learnt.

On the upside, I know what to look out for now: Talocan Automation Accounts. Gurista drone technology is likely based on the study of Talocan automation, applied onto Caldari ternary logic systems. Unfortunately, Isi could not access the publication in her form during the destruction of the Cheetah, so I will have to reacquire it, along with the Covert Research Tools they were using in that covert facility.

Also, the knowledge of Caldari Encryption Methods might help to crack open these black-box systems.
