Defend the Dirt: Using Terran technology as a base (acquired via Pallas), we will liberally seed the Venusian soil with earth-manipulation tech to combat any potential subterranean attacker. 10 years.

Manning the Walls: New cyberdefense technology. We will use RotA-inspired alorithms to make firewalls that are difficult to crack, due to both the complexity of the defense and their frequently-changing nature, making earlier progress fruitless as the key changes. We will also seed the network with Watchmen AI, who will find hostile, non-Federal code, and isolate and destroy it. Janitor AI will clean up and repair damaged code. We will also create a limited number of Manager AI, which are far more intelligent and competent.

HFPE: Boom Tube: The hidden construction of a several-km long ship, made almost entire up of the railgun, which is its main armament. Aiming to provide an effective deterrent once complete, the Boom Tube would launch a meteor-sized round at an offending civilization that uses similar weapons on the Federation.

Warpgate (Reprise): The expansion of the prior warpgate system to include all member-planets of the UPF, using updated technology that will allow for greater speeds between these fixed locations.


Tech is my least favorite part of the game fun fact from Subs

Underground Man: Increasing urbanization over the past few centuries has made cities moderately overcrowded. We're going to build down, and form undercities that are tightly integrated with the city above. Underground parks, artificial sunlight, and easy access to the surface will make this a pleasant and desirable alternative to surface living.

Miss Murder (HFPE): Biological weapon that makes the afflicted just really want to kill people, you know?

Mossman: A local legend come to life, our GMed plants will be able to conglomerate and form Mossman, a rather dumb predator that hunts the woods kidnapping people without Venusian DNA, when activated. Can also be controlled by a Doolittle-equipped Venusian.

Expansion of the Post-Aresian Sphere Studies Departments: A focused effort of the social sciences and humanities departments to hire researchers experienced in the post-Aresian sphere in order to have a more complete view of the newly-formed states and societies.


Venusian Unified Tech post

Vinnie: A virus modified to kill other viruses, incredibly fast-spreading but wholly harmless. Part of a long-running effort to protect the Venusian people from biowarfare. 15 yrs
Emmy: Hardening the mechanical/electronic/computational portions of the Venusian body to be more resilient to EMP effects, and enabling a Federal citizen to survive without their use. 15 yrs.
Snail: Developing stronger organic armors along the lines of Pallisian Dragon Scale, but able to be grown more swiftly. 15yr

If I care more I'll add more.

Brown Paladin- DONE
Post-Completion Overview: A renaissance in organic architecture is underway as new styles develop around materials such as wood, fungi, crystal, and light. Janisist monumental architecture is achieving new artistic heights supported by the Consortium's generous allocation of funding towards cultural patronage. Major increases in international tourism are expected as the nation proves its newfound religiosity is as much an economic benefit as it as a cultural boon. In spite of this, attempts are being made to preserve the trappings of the old Tammertert regime and not completely erase its presence in the public space. A substantial minority of reconstruction efforts are attempting to overlay the often garish creations with their own forward thinking designs for a "Neo-Baunairi fusion" style. Brown Paladin was also found to be applicable to certain kinds of bio-engineered fungi.

DNA-based Storage- DONE
Post-Completion Overview: Not much to add other than the Entinates' cyber-infrastructure are more secure. Especially important information of the HFPE variety are located in vast underground bunkers called "Knowledge Chambers". There, whirling spires of the DNA material are kept for safe-keeping so that only a handful of people ever truly get access.

Ongoing Projects:
Consortia of Blossoms: 4 years left
*Using centuries of Baunairi gene modding to non-humans, creating rudimentary plant-based computers that rapidly integrate new information. UPDATE: We'll begin researching and applying new developments to our Founding Trees.

Brother of Sprites: 16 years left
*An underground network of expanded HyperWay tunnels that crisscross through the Entinates. Designed to allow for the quick deployment of land units from one end of the nation to the other in the span of a few hours. Layered with some degree of stealth technology and advanced construction materials to prevent external damage.

Additional Projects:
The Biotic Sheath: Gonna get it's own post in a few days (gonna be outta town) but basically an organic power armor building on generations of tech development in nanotech, bioengineering, claytronics, etc. Specialized toward heavy engagements and urban warfare, it's highly personalized and requires extensive training (>3 years) in order to be used to its full potential. The upcoming standard Baujantec infantry armor replacing the Kush Battle series. Development will be focused on the initial model followed by continued upgrades to various elements. 25 years

Baujantec War Dog: Also gonna get a post, this is the beginning of a new generation of Baujantec war organisms. Uses old and recent tech to make heavily armored and dangerous combat assets with the power to contest a tank. 30 years

Liquid Light: Developing a superfluid (0 friction/viscosity) matter that basically amounts to flowing light. While regular light behaves like waves Baujantec scientists will make Bose-Einstein condensates at room temperature by using an exotic mash-up of light and matter called polaritons. To achieve this IRL, scientists have "sandwiched a 130-nanometre-thick layer of organic molecules between two ultra-reflective mirrors, and blasted it with a 35 femtosecond laser pulse (1 femtosecond is a quadrillionth of a second)". Polaritons combine the lightness and speed of a photon with the strong bonding power of an electron, giving the superfluid unique qualities. Baujantec scientists will expand on these experiments (and similar projects, especially relating to spintronics and photonic devices) to make them more potent, cheaper, and larger scale. Potential uses include significantly faster computers (data transmission using light), generally faster electronics/communications, stronger lasers, and increased data concentration. Project will focus on preliminary research and actual development, with future updates on spintronics and photonic devices planned soon after. 18 years


Completed Projects:
Consortia of Blossoms: DONE
Post-Completion Overview- After over 5 decades of research into this subject, we have a much more comprehensive understanding of plant life and the manipulation of autotrophic DNA more generally. These improvements were gradually integrated into other green-related research and technologies. Regarding specific knowledge about plant-based organic computing, we have relatively complex designs on hand as well as a solid groundwork for more intense research regarding this specific form of data manipulation. New organisms can also be produced with “Consortia or Blossoms” elements.

Brother of Sprites: DONE
Post-Completion Overview- The construction goal was complete.

Liquid Light: DONE
Post-Completion Overview- Advancements include significantly faster computers (data transmission via light), generally faster electronics/communications, stronger lasers, and increased data concentration. These have been integrated at the social level most notably, allowing for a slight increase in the general comfort and ease of living for those who have purchased their citizenship packages. These concepts have been integrated into our new generation of military units. It will take time before it becomes the standard.

Ongoing Projects:
Biotic Sheath: 12 year extension/There have been occasional issues with the wear and tear the suit does to the body along with the fact some have gained full sentience. Also integrating recently developed tech and doing some aesthetic changes
*Organic power armor to serve as the new standard battlesuit. Builds on centuries of research into bioengineering, claytronics, biocomputing, nanotechnology, and more. Specialized toward heavy engagements and urban warfare, it's highly personalized and requires extensive training (>3 years) in order to be used to its full potential.

Baujantec War Dog: 12 year extension/Scaling back aggression in these things and incorporating some recently developed biotech. Also adding/updating new layers of biometal/fungal plating.
*The first in a new generation of Consortium war organisms, a land-based cybernetic beast with the power and intelligence to contest a tank and perform other combat duties. Will come in 2 forms, a heavy and light "phyle".

Additional Projects:
Cyber Defense Layering: A large update building on some of the computing research as of late to revamp and solidify current computing networks for the military. Focuses on protecting against infiltration attempts that rob data and manipulates information while also advancing current methods of tracing cyber attacks back to their source. 20 years

Second Skin: The nation's military is elite but small and there isn't a strong tradition of militias in the Consortium's Entinates. So Uturaam and his allies in the Synod are making sure that in the event mercenaries and domestic forces fail the country can still defend itself, especially during an invasion. They are going behind the Adored One's back to do some research into bioengineering that causes people to spontaneously develop the means to defend themselves. A kind of "transformation" that gives people the ability to be physically and mentally superior for a time. As well as slightly more difficult to kill. How they intend to do that without permanently messing up Baujantecois anatomy or the rest of the government from finding out is anyone's guess... Current things on the cue include prehensile tongues and unhinged jaws. With a twist (think "The Strain" but less feral). No current end time for the time being (OOC: They'll eventually get caught but the fruits of this project will remain).

Kooky Acoustics: Building on Acoustic Research initially performed by the Phoenicians, Baujantecois scientists are tasked with learning more about acoustic science and its potential uses especially in the arts and entertainment. This would include things like levitation and cell manipulation (for bioengineering, which is a major aspect of culture in the Entinates). A second, less intense amount of research will go into what is known as "Battle Harmonics", the weaponization of sound waves for powerful concussive weapons and things of that nature. The goal here is refining the work already done into acoustics to make future designs able to better manipulate sound and use it in grander ways. 25 years


Completed Projects:
Biotic Sheath: DONE
Post-Completion Overview: (see follow up post soon)

Baujantecois War Dog: DONE
Post-Completion Overview: (Picture below) Roughly the size of a van, these organisms aren't designed to be apex predators (that's a future project) but rather heavy hitters. With a bevy of miniguns, laser modules, and grenade launchers outfitted with the latest tech, it's a brutal anti-personal unit with limited production capacity. It's also been outfitted with layers of various kinds of new organic metals and the physical strength to demolish most similarly sized units at close range with its diamond tipped claws. Incredibly intelligent, augmented with specialized Beast Nexus bundles and various recent computing techs to be able to coordinate in "packs" and be controlled remotely if need be. They tend to form deep relationships with their initial creators and handlers. They also come in a heavier and light variant with varying levels of firepower and speed.

Ongoing Projects:
Cyber Defense Layering: 5 years left
*A large update building on some of the computing research as of late to revamp and solidify current computing networks for the military. Focuses on protecting against infiltration attempts that rob data and manipulates information while also advancing current methods of tracing cyber attacks back to their source.

Second Skin: 15 years in
*A clandestine project conducted by radical elements of the Cosortium's government to induce transformations in civilians that give them increased combat capabilities. Current research has already looked at prehensile tongues and unhinged jaws, current research is integrating fangs and temporarily increased healing. This aspect of the project will take roughly 30 years then continue onto other additions.

Kooky Acoustics: 10 years left
*Building on Acoustic Research initially performed by the Phoenicians, Baujantecois scientists are tasked with learning more about acoustic science and its potential uses especially in the arts and entertainment. This would include things like levitation and cell manipulation (for bioengineering, which is a major aspect of culture in the Entinates). A second, less intense amount of research will go into what is known as "Battle Harmonics", the weaponization of sound waves for powerful concussive weapons and things of that nature.

Additional Projects:
Harimalyia's Wings: Pretty much using the best of Baujantecois biotech to develop non-sentient plant/fungal based organisms that can survive in space at a given orbital zone and radiation level. The foundation for a divine project the Synod dubs "The Dyson Seed". 20 years

Baujantecois Death Screamer: The avian/insectoid equivalent of the War Dog with flying capabilities and similar functions. 35 years


Completed Projects:
Cyber Defense Layering: DONE
Post-Completion Overview- Recent innovations in computing and cyber security have allowed for a more solid defense network in military software. Systems have greater capacity to resist infiltration attempts and retrace the origins of attack both within and outside the Consortium's Entinates.

Kooky Acoustics: DONE
Post-Completion Overview- Efforts to integrate large acoustic technologies into art/entertainment have boasted impressive results and holy significance. Some innovative Janisist temples have taken to levitating entire quarters with sound waves, while the cost of genetic modification seems to be on the slight decrease as "harmonic bioengineering" becomes a new trend for the rich and poor alike. Even the rooms where people receive bio-enhancements are filled with the "music of the gods". In addition to the cultural fascination with these recent advancements, a large but woefully inefficient sound cannon was created. Baujantecois scientists will have to embark on another project in the near future to fix the issues and turn this into a viable weapon.

Ongoing Projects:
Second Skin: 27 years in
*A clandestine project conducted by radical elements of the Consortium's government to induce transformations in civilians that give them increased combat capabilities. Current research has already looked at prehensile tongues and unhinged jaws, current research is integrating fangs and temporarily increased healing. This aspect of the project will take roughly 30 years then continue onto other additions.

Harimalyia's Wings: 8 years left
*Pretty much using the best of Baujantecois biotech to develop non-sentient plant/fungal based organisms that can survive in space at a given orbital zone and radiation level. The foundation for a divine project the Synod dubs "The Dyson Seed".

Baujantecois Death Screamer: 23 years left
*The avian/insectoid equivalent of the War Dog with flying capabilities and similar functions.

Additional Project(s):
Underwater Cities: A general update to current urban areas in closed water bodies such as Summerset Planitia and Hellas Planitia. Will mostly focus on improvements to filtration systems, food production, and energy maintenance, all of which are prime concerns when building in these types of areas. Efforts will also include research into making industry and other economic activities more profitable and sustainable when working in Mar's prestigious crater-lakes. The small technological improvements will be offered for free with other independent states on the Red Planet to raise the quality of life for all. 15 years

I'm canceling the Biopulse Cannons project. Instead, for the remainder of its research time, I'll be researching pods to drop lots of trips from space. Each pod will be able to drop 10 BX units, 1 large vehicle, or 50 SPAM.

Cyborgs - Providing Asterian Citizens the capability to add various types of gadget sets to themselves permanently. Using already existing technology and fusing it with the human body in order to get human abilities of flight, superhuman strength, intelligence, photographic memory, instant brain access to Internet, etc.

Universal AI - Making AI a part of everyday life. Allowing individual households to schedule a plan in which their homes will follow to prepare meals, clean the house, turn on and off electricity, manage water, file their taxes, and inform them of billing costs automatically. Planning to be implemented in only rich houses at the beginning but planning hopefully over 40-50 years after its completion to by a universal thing.

Pod Transportation - While the Hyperloop has revolutionized City to city transport within the cities and rural areas traditional cars are still in use. This aims to change that. Eventually to be incorporated with scheduling with Universal AI, Pods will be called and can hold up to ten people comfortably. The Magnetic pull of the pod on the beltway will be turned off and on at stops and will transfer people at high speeds safely to their destinations in a very time efficient manner. Still until Universal AI is crossed with Pod Transportation you will need to plan your Pod Trips 8 hours in advance so the Pods will have already routed out the most efficient routes possible.

Iggy the Robot - Iggy is not one robot but rather an ultimate identitifcation software. Every national alive and every foreigner who enters the country after Iggy’s creation will have to register their face, eyes, finger prints, etc. into the software. It will then have data about your life poured into it including criminal convictions, former occupations, nationality, citizenship, family history, medical history etc. Whenever, an employer wants to verify your background and life they may go to the city center with you to use Iggy and pull up your file with your permission. You can refuse of course but the job will likely be denied to you.

The Brain Vault - The Brain Vault has several access points. Here all data ever recorded is stored, permanently. The Brain Vault has information centers throughout the nation (and maybe outside the nation :? ) where it’ll pick up any messages being sent, videos being streamed, the users on it. And will register it regardless of VPN or Encryption (although it will record if those types of softwares were being used). Anything using VPN or Encryption will be flagged for review by the government while everything else will just be dumped into the Brain Vault for future review if ever needed.
