Orbital Elevator System
The Orbital Elevator System (軌道エレベーター Kidō Erebeitaa ) or Orbital EV (軌道EV Kidō EV ) is a megastructure planned by Aeolia Schenberg in 2090 to function as a space elevator and a solar power satellite. The structure was designed as a renewable alternative to the dwindling fossil fuel supplies.
It consists of two geostationary rings, equidistantly supported at 10,000 and 40,000 km above the equator by three 50,000-km-high compressive elevator towers that terminate in ballast satellites. The top ring is lined with a photovoltaic array, and the towers carry the energy produced back to the surface. The system is shielded from meteoroids, space debris, corrosion, weathering, geomagnetic storms, radiation (from the Van Allen belt or otherwise), and assorted other deteriorative agents by a physical energy barrier. It is defended by the collective military forces of the nations that participated in its construction.
Presently used for civilian space tourism, the elevators also act as a stepping stone to the ongoing international pursuit of space colonization. Currently there are only a handful of colonies, including Celestial Being's Krung Thep and the Human Reform League's Quanqiu. The Union also maintains a colony, and the AEU, while lagging behind in colony development, is financing both the Reform League and the Union in their respective development projects.
The three dominant supranational powers responsible for the system's construction and operation—the Union, the Human Reform League, and the AEU—have imposed a global boycott of fossil fuels so to better monopolize the energy distribution market. They are located in South America, Africa, and on top of the Pacific Ocean.
Union Orbital Elevator
The orbital elevator controlled by the Union (ユニオン軌道エレベーター Union Kidou Erebeitaa ) is situated near the border of the modern-day states of Brazil and Colombia within the Amazon Basin. It was the first of the elevators to become operational, completed in 2297.
HRL Orbital Elevator
Heaven's Pillar (天柱 Tenchū ), the orbital elevator controlled by the Human Reform League, is situated on an artificial island near the real-life nation of Nauru, north of the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean. It was the second of the elevators to become operational, completed in 2297.
AEU Orbital Elevator
La Tour, the orbital elevator controlled by the Advanced European Union (AEU軌道エレベーター AEU Kidou Erebeitaa ) is situated west of Lake Victoria, near the border of the real-life African states of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. By 2307, it is incomplete. In 2312, the Africa Tower is taken over by a coup d'état against the Earth Sphere Federation's A-Laws force. The tower was largely destroyed after taking a glancing hit from a second Memento Mori superweapon and large volumes of debris began falling to Earth as a result of the tower's auto-purge initiation program. The damage inflicted to the surface was reduced, albeit still immense, after Celestial Being Katharon, the Federation Army (both loyalists and rebels), and Kati Mannequin's A-Laws detachment worked together to shoot down the falling debris and save numerous cities in the fallout area. The elevator is still connected to space, although most of its outer shell has been purged and has likely fallen to Earth. It took four months to repair the electrical system but the linear train system is still incomplete.
Mobile Suit Technology
In the Mobile Suit Gundam 00, a mobile suit is a multipurpose humanoid vehicle deployable for use as an Armoured fighting vehicle in mechanized maneuver warfare. It was originally designed for construction-related purposes and the handling of heavy cargo. Aeolia Schenberg is credited with devising the technology as an accessory to the Orbital Elevator System.
Beam technology (ビーム技術 Biimu Gijutsu ) within Mobile Suit Gundam 00 has yet to come into conventional use. The Gundams are the first line of mobile suits to practically employ Particle beam-based firearms and melee weapons on the battlefield. Standard mobile unit projectile weapons continue to be of the physical round variety. Generic particle beam composition is unknown as of this time, but it is supposed that the Gundams utilize GN particles.
E-Carbon (Eカーボン E Kaabon ) is an artificial allotrope of carbon, employed as the armor material of numerous recent-make conventional mobile units. It is one of the newest and strongest materials available.
Solar Energy Mobile Suits
Solar energy mobile suits (太陽光エネルギーモビルスーツ Taiyou-Kou Enerugii Mobiru Suutsu ) are designed to take advantage of the energy provided by the orbital elevators. It is mentioned in the novel that these mobile suits can receive energy directly from the orbital elevators by means of radio wave. The AEU Enact is one such unit.
In the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 universe, the organization known as Celestial Being has pioneered a systemization of the engineering and physics behind the GN Drive and its byproduct GN particles. Initially exclusive only to Celestial Being, the technology is commonplace in the narrative. According to the Mobile Suit Gundam 00P side-story, GN stands for Gundam Nucleus.
Although derived from a different source, GN particles share their effect and primary usage with Universal Century timeline Minovsky particles. GN particles are used in a variety of ways—as part of an electromagnetic stealth measure; in a physical barrier system, for use in such circumstances as atmospheric reentry; as a propellant for the GN Vernier; and as a coat that improves the cutting ability of physical blades.
Basically, all Gundams use GN Drives; however, in situations that the GN drive is unavailable for the suit, the GN Condenser will be used in place of the GN drive in extreme conditions.
Referred to as a "solar reactor" (太陽炉 Taiyou-Ro ), or sometimes Solar Furnace. A "Gundam Nucleus Drive" (or GN Drive (GNドライヴ GN Doraivu ) in short) is a semi-perpetual generator that outputs GN Particles, developed as a mobile weapon power source by Celestial Being. It harnesses the photon and positron discharge of the non-evaporative decay of baryonic matter as an energy source; GN particles are not used in the process of energy production. Though there is a finite energy output per unit of time, the absence of a limit to its functional life translates to an effectively inexhaustible supply of energy. Owing to the unique heatlessness of its activity and the special properties of its byproduct GN particles, device operation is virtually invisible to such methods of detection as Infra-red search and track or conventional radar. These drives are used in conjunction with a TD Blanket, a special filter used in true GN Drives. These unique components not only provide filtering to the GN Drives and prevent the GN particles from damaging cellular organisms, but also give the GN Drives their near-infinite energy production capability. This component also prevents other factions from creating true GN Drives of their own, as the TD Blanket can only be manufactured in a location of high atmospheric pressure such as the upper gaseous atmosphere of Jupiter, where the GN Drives were first manufactured. A GN Drive is unable to harness topological defects for energy without a TD Blanket.
A GN Condenser is a type of capacitor that stores excess GN particles for future use. The material used for GN Condensers is currently unknown, but in its raw form, a GN condenser resembles a clear crystal of glass.
GN Condensers can be attached to mobile suits equipped with GN drives to increase their performance in cases where the GN drive isn't enough. A large GN Condenser is enough to power a conventional mobile suit should a GN Drive be unavailable. GN Condensers are also used to power Mobile Armors and support units.
Twin Drive System
The Twin Drive System (aka TDS) is a next-generation drive system in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 that synchronizes two GN Drives to create exponential GN Particle generation. Originally unique to the GN-0000 00 Gundam, the Innovators later stole the data from Celestial Being and reverse-engineered the system to work with two GN Tau Drives.
In a 2 Drive configuration with a regular setup, the total amount of particle output is simply double of a single GN Drive because the number of Drives has doubled as well. However, with a 2 Drive machine using a Twin Drive setup, the resulting particle generation is not double of that of a single Drive but instead is the square of that of a single Drive's output. This happens because of the synchronization of the 2 GN Drives, which allows the Twin Drive System to achieve such high particle generation rates.
GN Drive Tau
GN Drive Tau are known as pseudo-solar reactors (疑似太陽炉 Giji-Taiyou-Ro ) and/or pseudo-solar furnaces, generally known as GN Drive [T]. The data used to create Tau Drives came from an expedition to Jupiter where a Haro terminal (later known as the purple Haro that accompanied Team Trinity) was found, which contained data. The Tau Drives were used initially by Team Trinity's Gundam Thrones and later by the three superpowers and eventually the Federation Army and A-Laws. Though functionally similar, Tau Drives lack the TD Blanket component of a true GN Drive. As a result, a GN Drive Tau lacks the self-sustaining perpetual engine capability of a true GN Drive. Unlike the Gundams, which are capable of unlimited operation, any unit equipped with a Tau Drive must periodically shut down and recharge. The particle coloration of a Tau Drive varies from red to gold, unlike the blue-green coloration given off by true GN Drives. High densities of particles given off by Tau Drives have the side effect of preventing cellular regeneration, an available medical practice of the time. Eventually, the particles' effects become fatal to a victim. The Innovators have medication that can suppress the Tau particles, but the high density GN particles produced by the Twin Drive can negate and even reverse the effects.
GN particles, a type of exotic neutrino released as a byproduct of the GN Drive, are capable of disrupting conventional radar and wireless communications. The effect is comparable to that of the Minovsky particles in Universal Century. Unlike standard-flavor particles of the same class, GN particles are responsive to an unspecified machine-producible interactive force. They are exploited by Celestial Being for a variety of uses as part of an electromagnetic stealth measure; in a physical barrier system, for use in such circumstances as atmospheric reentry; as a propellant for the GN Verniers; and as a coating that improves the cutting ability of physical blades. The particles produced by all types of GN Drives are the same at the elementary level. The differing effects and visual appearance is because the particles are tuned at different wavelengths, a characteristic that is integral to each type of drive. Celestial Beings' true GN drives emit particles at a wavelength that corresponds to the green portion of the color spectrum. Green particles are optimized for particle compression and are generally balanced in its performance aspect.
The Gundam with original GN Drives gives out bluish-green particles. GN Particles can result in telepathic attributes when one is exposed to a high concentration; Veda humanoid interfaces such as Tieria Erde and the Innovators are able to communicate with each other or connect with Veda through GN particles.
GN Tau Particles
Just as the GN Tau Drive used by the Gundam Thrones and GN-X models is an imperfect version of the true GN Drive, so are the GN Tau Particles imperfect versions of the true GN Particles. Generated by GN Tau Drives, they share most properties with GN Particles (including radio disruption, use in beam weaponry and propellant applications), but do not allow for enhancement of quantum brainwaves. The particles generated by the Tau Drives in 2308 can cause cellular damage when exposed to high concentrations, which cannot be repaired through 24th-century medical science. Louise Halevy's inability to regenerate her hand was caused by exposure to GN Tau Particles from Nena Trinity and her GNW-003 Gundam Throne Drei, and it is possible that her current health conditions also stem from the cellular damage caused by the attack. Eventually, the effects of the Tau particles will become fatal to the victim. However, the effects can be suppressed. The Twin Drive is able to slow and possibly reverse the effects of the Tau particles.
The Trans-Am System is a system that temporarily removes the 'limiter' on the true GN Drives. Under normal operation, the limiter reduces the output of the GN Drives while the drives themselves store up any excess GN Particles created inside GN Condensers. With the limiter deactivated, the GN Drives can then operate at their full power by releasing all of their stored particles instantaneously. These stored particles saturate the frame of the mobile suit to give it a reddish hue, and the abilities of the unit are increased threefold while the system is active. However, this boost in performance is only temporary as once all the released energy and particles dissipate, the GN Drives must replace the spent energy and the unit will perform at a reduced capacity until the energy is replaced.
The use of the Trans-Am system is not limited to mobile suits. Celestial Being's assault carrier Ptolemaios II can engage Trans-Am mode when at least one Gundam GN Drive is attached to the ship's system. As seen in episode 9 of season 2, the combined Trans-Am output of Cherudim, Arios, and Seravee enables the Ptolemaios II to execute an atmospheric launch from sea level. In episode 23 of season 2, the ship has a Trans-Am system, utilizing the pre-stored particles in its particle storage tanks; it can be used only for a brief period of time.
A Trans-Am-like mode is possible with fake GN Drives, but has a shorter time limit than the real ones, since the fake drives have limited energy. Unlike true GN drives, which simply operate at a reduced capacity after Trans-Am has ended, Trans-Am derived from false GN Drives risk rendering the mobile suit inoperable due to lack of particles.
According to Ian Vashti, Innovation is caused by the GN Particle's special state in Trans-Am (Trans-Am Raiser and Trans-Am Burst System specifically). He theorized that it may be possible that this special state of GN Particles can even be felt regardless of range, and that more possible genuine Innovators awakened as a result of Trans-Am Burst that Setsuna used during the battle with the Innovators. He is worried that the Earth Sphere Federation now possessing the Trans-Am System technology will notice its relation to Innovation and try to use it for military purposes.
Later, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: Awakening of the Trailblazer, Trans-Am can be used to overload to the maximum to self-destruct while in Mobile Suit/Mobile Armor equipped-fake GN Drive when the ELS begin to assimilated the unit & also can be used as a last resort.
Trans-Am Burst System
A hidden Trans-Am derived system on the 00-Raiser, known as Trans-Am Burst, is known to only activate when the pilot, a true Innovator, uses their quantum brainwaves to link to the Twin Drive System. This is perhaps best demonstrated when Setsuna unconsciously activates it when going against the Innovators. The full effect of Trans-Am Burst is still unknown, but the system is known to cover a large area with a high density of purified GN Particles that disrupts quantum brainwaves. The Twin Drives produce massive amounts of GN particles in a rainbow-like hue, streaming from them in waves. There are enough particles to envelop a battlefield. The GN particles are able to halt the cellular mutation of the GN Tau particles. The GN Particles it generates have a similar effect to Trans-Am Raiser: those within the particle cloud will experience the "quantum effect" for an extended period of time (relative to the surrounding particle density). The system has been defined as "expanding human consciousness" via the "purified" GN Particles, which also have the ability to disrupt quantum brainwaves, repel nearby mobile suits, and distract enemy combatants as an overwhelming particle burst.
In 'Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: Awakening of the Trailblazer, Setsuna used the Trans-Am Burst System once again to try communicating with the ELS.
Twin Drive System
The "Twin Drive System" is a 200-year-old GN technology concept originally devised by Aeolia Schenberg, and currently in use exclusively in the 00 Gundam (although it was later stolen by the Innovators from Celestial Being and reverse engineered to allow the Reborns Gundam to use two Tau Drives in a Twin Drive as well). The system utilizes two GN Drives with a synchronized GN particle production rate as the basis for the system's operation, which creates a synchronization of the topological defects in the two GN Drives. This ultimately produces a synergy in which the total output of both drives is squared (by coupling the drives' production).
The Twin Drive mechanism will not function with just any two GN Drives - each GN drive is unique in some way and these differences can prevent the system from reaching a stable level of synchronization. Even though GN Drives have been seen in different shapes and sizes, these differences are believed to be more than cosmetic as the inner mechanics of a GN Drive are unknown and have not been seen. Every combination of the drives from 0 Gundam, Kyrios, Dynames, and Virtue failed to operate the system, and only the combination of the drives from Exia and 0 Gundam were able to reach a synchronization level that allowed the system to stabilize and power the Twin Drive System. Even after stabilizing the system, the system was still unstable and activating the Trans-Am System risked a system overload. It was only after the 0 Raiser was used in conjunction with the 00 that the system could be fully stabilized and the Trans-Am system was safe to use.
While Federation mobile weapons have been shown with more than one GN Drive Tau (the GNMA-XCVII Alvatore mobile armor had seven), they only operate in series so they lack the amplification effect of the Twin Drive system. The combined output of multiple GN Drive Taus is merely the sum of the outputs of the individual drives rather than the square of the combined output as in the Twin Drive System.
The Quantum System is a system utilized by GNT-0000 00 Qan(T) feature in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: Awakening of the Trailblazer. The system is a derivative of the Trans-Am Burst System. Similar to Trans-Am Burst, the system is meant to expand the conscious thoughts and feelings of an Innovator, such as Setsuna F. Seiei. Upon its activation, the GN Drives behind the shield and in the torso section are physically joined for direct dual particle generation, a second phase of the Twin Drive System. It is followed by the purging of varying armor parts and the "extension" of some GN Condenser parts from all over the MS, then the extension of the GN Drive Core to expel particles from the 00 Qan[T]. The 00 Qan[T]'s GN Sword Bits then create a circular formation underneath the suit to channel the GN Particles.
With the Quantum System, 00 Qan[T]'s new Twin Drives were designed to expand Setsuna's quantum brainwaves and create a much stronger and powerful quantum effect so as to allow Setsuna to telepathically communicate with any and all minds within the limited sphere of his influence with greater power and ease. It is suggested that this ability requires or are part of the new Twin GN Drives as Ian Vashti mentioned that they were capable of creating a stronger quantum effect field than the previous ones. Further specifics and requirements of this system is not entirely clear at this point.
Setsuna used only once when he was trying to communicated with ELS once again and then, he was ultimately successfully communicated with ELS.
Quantum Teleport System
The Quantum Teleport System is an advanced Faster-Than-Light (FTL) propulsion system featured in 'Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: Awakening of the Trailblazer. The Quantum Teleport System is a next generation faster-than-light (FTL) drive system. While the full characteristics aren't defined, the system is closely related to the 00 Raiser's quantization process. Originally, quantization was a phenomenon created through extremely high GN Particle concentrations caused by the GN-0000+GNR-010 00 Raiser's Trans-Am System. Celestial Being (CB) engineers eventually stumbled upon this feature when analyzing 00 Raiser's combat data. They never expected 00 Raiser to possess a completely new ability simply through extremely high GN particle concentrations: short distanced teleportation. Building on top of the data they gathered, they realized they could develop a new form of FTL travel using GN Particles.
While developing the GNT-0000 00 Qan[T] and perfecting its systems, CB's engineering staff discovered that it wasn't necessary to super-saturate 00 Qan[T]'s frame to replicate the effect. All that was needed was a highly concentrated GN Field to create a quantum gateway. CB engineers configured 00 Qan[T]'s GN Sword Bits to generate powerful particle fields to fulfill this role. While the full extent of this system's capabilities are unknown, the system is capable of taking the 00 Qan[T] to other parts of the galaxy within seconds, plus 00 Qan[T] can also generate quantization process which no need the Trans-Am System, because 00 Qan[T] can perform extraordinary power with the new Twin Drive System where this system no longer need backup machine like GNR-010 0 Raiser .
After the ELS Conflict, the Earth Sphere Federation eventually came into possession of true GN Drive technology, and continued to refine the technology. They eventually developed new methods of controlling the flow of GN Particles to generate quantum gateways without the need for remote bits. In conjunction with refined GN Drive technology, new generation mobile suits like the GNW-100A Sakibure can now generate quantum gateways without the GN Particle requirements supplied by a Twin Drive System. However, it can be equally suggested that a single drive's output has been refined to generate near Twin Drive levels. The technology has since been diversified past Mobile Suit development. As the technology expanded beyond combat applications, the newest generation of starships like the Sumeragi have their own FTL-Drives for deep space exploration and travel.
It is first used by GNT-0000 00 Qan(T) when Setsuna use it to goes to the ELS's homeworld in order to understanding.
Veda (Sanskrit वेद, véda, "knowledge") is the supercomputer of Celestial Being, located in the colony ship of the same name stationed near the Moon. It is a highly advanced form of artificial intelligence based on real developing technologies of quantum processing. Veda is interlinked throughout all of Celestial Being's computers, including the Gundams. The Gundams possess an operating system that is interlinked with Veda for tactical adaptation and mobile suit combat. The name "Veda" may be a reference to the Vedas, a collection of ancient Hindu scriptures.
Due to suspicious tampering with Veda, Sumeragi had her staff create a backup system in the event Veda was hacked again. This system was helpful when Alejandro Corner managed to find Veda. Alejandro nearly had the Gundam Meisters killed when he overrode the Gundam's systems, but Sumeragi had the Gundams disconnect from Veda and coordinate on their own. Veda was directly linked to Aeolia Schenberg's dormant body, and is programmed with a system trap should Aeolia's body be harmed in any way. This safety program was activated when Aeolia Schenberg was killed, unlocking the original Gundams' Trans-Am System while erasing all information on the four Gundam Meisters.
Veda is linked to the world's net, making it capable of absorbing a vast amount of data. It is unclear if Veda is capable of hacking since other Celestial Being members hacked for information; Veda is known to have classified government information. It is unknown whether the information was given by Celestial Being observers, done by itself, or a combination of both.
Its inter-network systems are no different than modern internet LAN systems, but on more complex scales. Veda can communicate with the Haros of Celestial Being, but it is unclear whether Veda has influence or merely communicates with them; it would explain the Haros' ability to perform complex tasks and reflective thoughts to the Meisters. Veda's systems are linked with the Gundams and provide tactical knowledge as well as remote control with the Gundams.
Although Veda is an all powerful A.I. construct, it is still just an advanced operating system. Like all software, it can be altered or controlled. Veda has seven layers of barriers for such a situation, but was still no match for Ribbons Almark. Sensitive data pertaining the profiles of the Gundam Meisters, GN Drives, and Celestial Beings' mobile suit designs were taken due to unauthorized infiltration. Veda has been manipulated with certain commands that affects all operations of Celestial Being.
Bio-terminals called the Innovades can telepathically connect with Veda through use of quantum brainwaves and GN particles as a catalyst. They can use this ability to great effect, like locating one of their own. When the Innovades connect to Veda, their eyes glow in a digital rainbow hue. It has been hinted in interviews with director Seiji Mizushima that Veda is the primary cause for the world's current situation, including why Solar power is more commonplace than nuclear energy (in order to prevent mankind from destroying itself) and the splitting of the world into the three power blocs (something of a proto-form of a unified world).
It is unclear how Veda screens and evaluate for recruitment, but the majority of recruits to Celestial Being were chosen by Veda. Veda somehow noticed very specific people and entrusted them with the secrets of Celestial Being. From the Gundam Meisters to the crew members and agents, they were all chosen by Veda for their qualities. Veda does not appear to factor in compatibility, as the Meisters as well as other Celestial Being members are prone to violent diasgreements.
Those selected have not all agreed willingly, such as Gundam Meisters Marlene Vlady and Fon Spark. Several others were drafted into Celestial Being against their will. Untrustworthy operatives of Celestial Being were given explosive neck braces which detonate when they become a serious threat. Marlene was eventually deemed trustworthy and had her explosive removed.
In episode 24 of the second season, Tieria Erde recaptures Veda from Ribbons Almark. Ultimately, Regene Regetta gave Tieria Ribbons' access code, so Tieria was able to cut off Ribbons' link to Veda and his control of Veda.
A solar-powered free-electron laser located on the Low Orbit Ring, it was developed by the Innovators for A-Laws with Wang Liu-Mei's financial support. Its destructive power quite easily surpasses nuclear weapons, and is capable of wiping an entire city off the face of the Earth with one shot. For all its power however, the weapon was doomed by multiple weaknesses. Its inability to fire rapidly and its limited firing angles meant that it was dependent on an A-Laws fleet for protection. Even with that though, Memento Mori would not prove easy to destroy. Its greatest weakness is its "electromagnetic field photon resonance chamber", a component critical to firing the Memento Mori. Should the chamber be destroyed or damaged, the Memento Mori's energy systems will overload and will result in a chain reaction explosion; the chamber itself is built under the right side of its hull armor. Approaching fleets were limited by their size and formation to stay in Memento Mori's firing area, and Memento Mori's heavy armor meant that only the most powerful weapons could destroy it. Also it suffers from a limited firing angle (approximately 30–45 degrees from vertical) relative to distance. In fact, the satellite weapon has a blind spot parallel to the orbital ring in which it is unable to attack. The Memento Mori makes up for this by anticipating the movement of enemy targets and firing at the enemy from long-range before the enemy can reach their intended destination.
Two Memento Mori's were created. The first was fired four times; first at the Suille Kingdom's capital city, then on a Richiera Kingdom military base-refugee camp, on an approaching Katharon fleet, and finally at Celestial Being's Transport Ship, Ptolemaios II. It was destroyed when Celestial Being used the Gundam Seravee's Hyper-Burst and Ptolemaios II's missiles to breach the armor, allowing Gundam Cherudim to destroy the electromagnetic field photon resonance chamber, destroying the superweapon. Memento Mori 2 fired only once, at Africa Tower's Low Orbit Station during a Federation Forces coup. It was critically damaged and put out of operation (at least temporarily) by 00-Raiser. Repaired, it was destroyed four months later by 00-Raiser.
