Dept. 7 Adv. Class Update: The S.L.A.M. Soldier


The S.L.A.M. Soldier
(Subspace Looped Armor Materialization)

Instant firepower.

Instant vehicles. Instant tools. Instant medical support.

The United States Army Air Corps began the
first tentative steps into teleportation research during
the early 1940s. Human and animal experiments,
bulk teleport trials and crude wormholes were put
into production, and continued, with varing
degrees of success, well into the 1970s.

Teleportation reseach reached a disasterous climax
during the late 1960s, when the now-infamous
Philladelphia Project attempted to teleport a USN
destroyer and its crew several miles. The majority
of the crew was killed instantly during the jaunt; the
shockingly few survivors were mutilated by the failed
experiment, bodies and souls torn apart by transition-trauma.

Though the "Philidelphia Method" teleporter was
lethally unsuited for transporting living passengers, its
worth as a bulk teleport method was proven beyond
a shadow of a doubt. No matter what happened to
the crew during transit, the fact remained that the
experimental destroyer arrived at the destination

It wasn't until fall of 1985 that the cruder
"Philladelphia Method" teleporter was refined
into what came to be called the S.L.A.M.
Process, an acronym for Subspace Looped Armor
Materialization. The goal of the S.L.A.M. process
was to use ‘teleporation on demand' to reduce the
total weight of gear an infantryman must carry, while
dramatically increasing the soldier's firepower and
effectiveness. Any piece of gear- any weapon needed-
was no farther away than than a phone call to a support unit,
requesting an item teleport to the soldier's location.

The S.L.A.M. Soldier is designed to be the
ultimate ‘utility man'- capable of teleporting virtually
any weapon or gadget he needs into the palm of his
hand. Even better, the S.L.A.M. Soldier can reconfigure
himself on the fly, altering skills, abilties and defenses
to suit the situation. Do you need somebody to descend
to 11,000 ft and rescue a trapped submarine? Do you
need someone stealthy and shielded enough to infiltrate
a heavily guarded fortress and jam the alarms? Do you
need a medic with a full surgical suite?

Give your fireteam's S.L.A.M. Soldier a few
seconds to confer with his support operator,
and everything he needs- from implants to skill
packages- will be in his hands in under a minute.
Even more importantly, the subspace loop that
powers the S.L.A.M.'s teleportation engine provides
an ironclad communications link between the
field unit and the S.L.A.M.'s remote operator. The
S.L.A.M.'s teammates can take comfort in the fact
that as long as their S.L.A.M. is alive, they're in
touch with headquarters.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
