Distorted Shield Cycle Recordings

Collected during basic scan: frequently pulled from haulage vessels.

Data from a scan of a shield system over a given time period is a normally reliable data set, as long as the input variables are correctly compensated for. In rare cases this data doesn't fit the probable pattern and is of keen interest to certain individuals.

How to get components

Components may be obtained in locations noted. Higher rarity components can be usually obtained from bigger and/or more dangerous ships and locations (like T9 for transportation ships, Anaconda for combat ships, well defended settlements with Data points and so on).
