Gaslighting: A program meant to weaponize our Mentats, Panopticon, our immense knowledge of psychology and large-scale data analysis, and our cyber and surveillance programs. Very similar to Cambridge Analytica IRL. This includes things like astroturfing, botting, creating hyperrealistic AI, microtargetting people with propaganda and subliminal messaging and basilisks. This could be used in things like stochastic terrorism, to destabilize a region, to election interference or simply pushing different agendas with better PR.

(This could technically go in GDI but): A new law has been passed by the Pacifican Forum mandating that all professional soldiers in the Praetorian Order have "backups" on ice for faster resurrection times. Instead of cloning new bodies from saved remains, a 'empty' clone in cryogenic storage will have the new consciousness loaded into upon death. Funding from the Pacifican Emergency War Fund is being used to help build the new facilities. Other changes to the law mandate that these bodies belong to the government and are thus marked accordingly-this also allows for faster identification in the event of 'identity theft,' a very real problem that could arise. However, a new unaltered body will be made for free and paid for by the Order when its members retire. This also allows for more biological mods and cybernetic implants to be added, which could potentially save lives and increase our effectiveness.

Going along with this, although the Praetorian Order will continue to protect and serve the King, they now have the added responsibility of protecting Inner Pacifica. Instead, our militia will be split into essentially thirds-professional soldiers to man border defenses and other inner defenses, emergency reserves of militia trained in VR and by other tech for wartime, and the Praetorian Order which will supplement the border guards and also serve as our main offensive force when needed. (That way we don't leave Pacifica unguarded).

Gods' Will (HFPE): The construction of a five-km long space-railgun, as a sort of doomsday weapon in the event that the survival of the Venusian species is threatened. Uses specially-made projectiles, constructed from Advanced Hull Metals, which swiftly gain speed over the five kilometers through gravitron manipulation and liquid magnets. Prototype, if successful, others will be made to provide a more effective deterrant. DONE

Enola Gay: Development of Enola Gay-class ships, specially designed to go to far-off planets to mine all their uranium and bring it back to Venus for use in religious ceremonies. DONE

Weightlifting: Miniturization of tractor and gravity beams to enable them to be man-portable, with applications in military and civilian lines of work. DONE

Between Heaven and Hell: 12.5 years. Creation of a massive simulation to house the souls of dead Venusians and make real the promises of eternal life that the state religion offers. Venusian gods are forgiving, so hell will be only moderately shitty and the condemned will be able to earn their way to heaven. Open to AI and converts as well.

Out of Our Element: Research into the viability of underwater cities, given that Venusians have the ability to breathe under water but no native naval tradition to speak of. Construction of a model city in the Sea of San Matias, not far from the shores of Aphrodite Planum and Aquae Magni. 12.5 years

Dunk: Development of a suite of non-lethal weaponry that would allow Venus to fight inferior foes without compromising its honor. This would include tranquilizer and stun guns, as well as sleeping gasses. 20 years.

Always Ready: Modifying the AT shield in all Venusians to be easily controlled by the wearer, who will be able to shift the energy shield into different shapes to suit the situation, like a sword. 5 years.

Done:

Sunlight

Caged Sun

Bastion

High Response Engines

Excess


Ongoing:

New:

Fleche - a general upgrade to our missile propulsion, particularly with the speed, elusiveness, and movement algorithms. This is integrated with our stealth and EW technologies and techniques. 20 years (June 25)

Fletchling - another update to our missiles, this time looking at their control. Using our close in missile approach, and integrating data from our sensors, battlefield awareness, EW, and previous missiles, Fletchling will upgrade the ability of our missiles to maneuver past countermissile and point defense fire, elusively skirt projectiles and obstacles, and combine with our specialty warheads/EW to pierce harder defenses. 20 years (June 25)

Mail - A large step forward in Mattibean armor and shield technology, project Mail is aimed at providing the base for further practical applications, and developing the technology and techniques to be applied there. The final goal of project Mail will deliver a small, self contained unit - with a powerful micro-battery or micro generator providing power, integrated deep within the armor unit. Surrounding it will be a extremely durable, hard 'cast' of chromsten armor, and layered armor. And throughout that armor, tendrils of integrated circuits and plasma channels will be embedded, able to generate one or two internal layers of plasma shielding, as well as a plasma skin. 50 years (August 24)

Eagle - Project Eagle is aimed at revitalizing our Raptor and Wraith line of fighters, optimizing their designs with new technology, expertise, and techniques. Will include an upgrade to their maneuverability, EW, etc, integrating our designs with them fully. 15 years (June 15)

HFPE
Projects Pele, Envoy and Gaslighting done

HFPE
Phantom-16.5/20

New:
Upgrading our tactical series of missiles-20 years
Better cruise missiles and anti-ship missiles-15 years

In both project, we are using improvements in stealth technology and Electronic warfare and deploying that tech to missiles. Like before, both have multiple stages including a far faster scramjet stage and a much more maneuverable stage that uses turbojects or antigrav.

Athenian Mk3: (not really mark 3 but hey) Weapon, armor, and flight enhancements to select Athenian armor models. Said armor is meant to increase firepower and mobility although at the cost of cost and less flexibility or modularity 20 years

HFPE

Mosasaur - A mega submersive ship. Similar defensive structure as the Crane Air Unit. Cloaking ability as well. The Mosasaur is armed with Bolt missiles which is can also target the ground with to create tremors under the water and shift plates. Armed with new Interceptors called Jax and defended by CSPL+ electronically. Armed also with Demano.

Jax - Interception system that analyzes all opposing methods of offense and stores it and shares it with all other Jax systems connected to it. Uses the data to rapidly predict opposing strikes and counter them in the most effective time possible.

Roven IV - Dubbed "The sinkhole machine" by the CoM that was used in the Shanghai War now being upgraded for current systems. Being provided with stealthier abilities to avoid detection and being upgraded with a system that allows it to cause bigger havoc by leaving behind systems that detonate at once to topple infrastructure above it.

Energy Efficiency - Increasing efficiency of generated energy within Crane Air Units and Z-PPRS III in order to provide for more firepower at the disposal of the Air Force in rough conditions. Providing alternative methods of generation with wind power and solar power alternating when one is more efficient that the other to generate energy.

Cyon Technology Report (HFPE):

The ULTIMATE VR, Phase 1 (10 yrs.) - We will develop a new way of life! For uploaded consciousnesses, being simply stored... well, frankly, it sucks. It's kind of inhumane, honestly. You're basically in a sort of vegetable state, so if your soul is uploaded to be stored, well, you're as good as dead. However, the ULTIMATE VR aims to fix that! We'll start out with the basics: Instead of being brain-dead, you get to live in an awesome virtual simulation of the entire world! You can do what you want, and it won't hurt anyone! The graphics and other things will be able to use updating later, but we'll cover that during later bug fixes. For now, we want some people to be able to start living again. For example, we'd like to build a prison network to apply this technology, so felons can live out their lives the way they want and never harm a fly (other than the virtual ones, of course). Participants will be able to interact with one another.

Tech Overhaul (20 years) - Basically, I was gone for a while, and while it would be uncharacteristic of Cyon not to do research, there really wasn't anything new. However, that can be fixed! Basically, this is just a project to officially make my former tech up-to-date with the times (using the technology and improvements undoubtedly made in the past couple of centuries).

Military Overhaul (30 years) - This is basically the same as the Tech overhaul, but it's applying the Tech Overhaul to our military. For instance, instead of simply making our gun designs better, it will make our actual guns better.

The ATD has begun work on remodelling and repurposing PCG Terra's T2 program. The new model will become known as the T3

The Terminator was originally designed by the Empire of New Colombia as a killing machine, before they became the CSR.

Later on the PCG helped develop the second generation, the T2*, with the corporation specialising in the synthesis of Asgard technology with these new models, to allow neural uplinks with the units, while in the field.

* - something we're not too proud of, but we did it and it's the only weapons-related tech project in our history (outside of defensive/shielding techs)

The T2 was used in combat during the South American War of several centuries ago and performed admirably in the field, but have not seen active combat since. Many have expected the Corporation to decommission the T2 program soon after merging with Terra, but that announcement never came.

The T2's were also briefly used by the Corporation during the recent Brazilian Civil War, but only for reconnaissance purposes.

The latest developments are believed to be made with an eye on the new T3 units being repurposed for use in the Trappist 1 system, where the ability to use them as avatars could prove to be decisive in reducing potential casualties in what could be dangerous and risky situations and operating conditions.

Project length - 4 to 5 years to increase durability and generally buff-everything-up for use on a larger planet with heavier gravity, followed by another 2 or 3 to iron out the kinks.

The NVC's twin "living cities" projects have completed.

A weaponized version of the mycelium is going developed. The planned organism quickly overruns local mycelium fauna linking infected forests together. Project length: 20 Years

Syn is entering a fairly standard upgrade period, incorporating iterative improvements budgeted for through the Mobian Census as well as more substantial technological improvements. This process should take about 5 years.

Mobian scientists have set to work improving our spacefighters. Specifically, we hope to increase the ability to store drones/unmanned ships in our fighterbays, so that they take up less room compared to a manned fighter. Project will take 30 years.
