The company’s experience in orbital manufacturing gave Technicron a head start in the production of advanced armor and chassis materials, but Technicron Military Engineering excels most in the manufacture of precision power plants. The division played a key role in the reintroduction of extra-light technologies, using them first with a licensed Pitban design and then expanding their use to other models. These endeavors also led to the development of several other engine technologies, boosting power-to-weight ratios and resilience, though none of these advanced systems are yet commercially available.
The desire for quality products prompted Technicron to acquire jump sail supplier Forerunner, A.G. in 3059. Quality control issues concerning sails for Impavido WarShips caused several significant delays, and with the tacit approval of the LCCC, Technicron staged a hostile takeover. The years since have seen slow but steady improvement in the reliability of Forerunner sails, their overly complex furling mechanism being replaced by a simpler and more robust model without compromising the sails’ superlative power-transfer capabilities. The former management of Forerunner has staged several legal challenges to the takeover and their disenfranchisement, all of which have been dismissed.
