Gravity accelerators (a.k.a. gravity/argrav generators) are devices of terran origin, providing mankind with an answer to the problems presented by zero-gravity environments (eg. movement, muscular atrophy). The technology was devised prior to the colonization of the Koprulu Sector.
Accelerators are capable of amplifying existing gravitational forces and generating additional gravity, the force of which can be increased or decreased at will. However, accelerators still have a shortcoming in that the amount of gravity generated in zero-g environments is still slightly less than standard gravity. Although the difference is not noticeable by most people, it is still enough to lead to space sickness.
Gravity generators are used by space platforms and capital ships. In addition, the following pieces of Terran technology maintain the technology should the main generators fail;
- CMC Powered Combat Suit (grav-boots may provide an alternative).
- Siege tank
