Exploration & Survey

Exploration and survey are essential components to the success of Atlas Defense Industries (ADI) in the Star Citizen Universe. Exploration involves searching for natural resources on moons and planets, while surveying refers to the process of mapping the land, water bodies, or other geographical features of discovered worlds. Exploration and surveying involve using advanced technology and equipment, including astrophysical sensors, remote sensing, and more. These processes help identify the location and extent of natural resources, determine the viability of mining or drilling, and provide essential information for construction projects. In addition, the Division provides essential support for the exploration of the Verse for members who want to experience game play as cultural experts, archeologists, scientists, or astrophysicists.

Surface Exploration

To use a resource, you must first find the resource. This is where ground exploration and survey play a key role in ADI's mission success. The aim of ground exploration and survey is to first find and identify the natural resources and potential hazards that exist within a given area. This information is critical for supporting mining operations and projects. Surface exploration and survey can help uncover valuable resources, such as valuable minerals, that may be hidden beneath the surface. It also helps to identify any potential risks that may arise from the construction or development of outposts or facilities in a given area to support ADI missions.

Field Surveyor

As a Field Surveyor, your primary responsibility will be conducting surveys of found places of interest, including mineral veins, potential facility sites, and other areas of interest. You will be responsible for collecting data on these locations, including geological and environmental data, as well as any other relevant information. This data will be used to inform decision-making on potential mining or development projects. Additionally, you may be required to collaborate with other crew members or teams to share data and coordinate efforts. Strong analytical skills, attention to detail, and a familiarity with surveying techniques will be critical for success in this role.

 

Field Explorer

As a Field Explorer, your primary responsibility will be to traverse and map planetoids in search of places of interest. This will require you to have a deep understanding of geology, geography, biology, and cartography. You will be responsible for conducting detailed surveys of the planets you explore, noting potential mineral deposits, hidden facilities, flora, fauna, and other areas of interest. Additionally, you will be required to work closely with other crew members, such as the Field Surveyors and Astrophysicists, to analyze the data you gather and determine the best course of action for further exploration. A strong understanding of planetary sciences, the ability to work independently in harsh environments, and a drive for discovery will be critical for success in this role.

 
 

Space Exploration

Space exploration is the process of exploring the Star Citizen universe, which includes finding and identifying planetary bodies, moons, stars, and other celestial phenomena. The purpose of space exploration is to find, identify, and map areas of potential resources, such as asteroid fields, gas clouds, wormholes, or potentially undiscovered worlds. Space exploration is a complex and challenging endeavor, but it offers immense benefits and opportunities to advance personal curiosity and financial reward.

Space Surveyor

As a Space Surveyor, your primary responsibility will be conducting surveys of places of interest in the depths of space, such as mineral-rich asteroids, gas clouds, and other stellar phenomena. You will use specialized equipment and techniques to study and analyze these areas, collecting data that can be used for a variety of purposes, including mining, scientific research, and exploration. You will be expected to work both independently and as part of a team to complete assigned survey missions, with a strong focus on accuracy and attention to detail. Strong analytical and problem-solving skills, as well as a deep knowledge of the equipment and techniques used for space surveying, will be critical for success in this role.

 

Space Explorer

As a Space Explorer at ADI, your primary responsibilities will be to locate and map places of interest out in space. This includes identifying and cataloging mineral-rich asteroids, gas clouds, and other stellar phenomena that could be of strategic value to ADI. You will be required to work closely with other explorers and surveyors to coordinate survey efforts and prioritize potential targets. Your work will be instrumental in expanding ADI's reach and securing valuable resources for the Org. A keen eye for detail, a strong understanding of spacefaring technology, and the ability to work independently in challenging environments will be critical for success in this role.

 
 

Exploration Support

Successful exploration requires individuals who are willing to travel to unfamiliar places to discover, investigate, and document new information or resources. Explorers venture into uncharted territories, travel to remote regions, or explore the vastness of planet surfaces or deepness of space. They seek to expand the knowledge and understanding of the Verse, whether it be the physical geography of a region, the culture and customs of its inhabitants, or the biology of its flora and fauna. Explorers may work independently or as part of a team, and they often possess specialized skills such as navigation, survival, language, archeology, and culture.

Cultural Expert

As a Cultural Expert within ADI, your primary responsibility will be to understand Xeno culture and language. You will be required to conduct in-depth research and analysis on the various alien cultures that ADI interacts with, in order to gain a deeper understanding of their customs, traditions, and communication methods. Additionally, you will be responsible for developing strategies and tactics for effectively communicating and interacting with alien species, both on a diplomatic level and in combat situations. A strong knowledge of alien languages, history, and cultural nuances, as well as the ability to work collaboratively with other team members, will be critical for success in this role.

 

Archeologist

As an Archeologist with ADI, your primary responsibilities will be to study and interpret the ruins and artifacts found in the Star Citizen Universe. You will use your knowledge and expertise to analyze these objects, determine their cultural and historical significance, and create reports that will help ADI better understand the various cultures and civilizations that exist in the game world. Your work will be critical to the success of ADI's exploration and research efforts, and you will collaborate closely with other members of the team to share your findings and insights. Strong analytical skills, a passion for history and culture, and the ability to work independently and as part of a team will be essential for success in this role.

 

Astrophysicist

As an Astrophysicist at ADI, you will be responsible for the study of stellar phenomena including jump points, black holes, neutron stars, and more. You will use advanced scientific techniques and technologies to collect and analyze data, identify patterns and trends, and develop models to explain and predict the behavior of these phenomena. Additionally, you will work closely with other researchers and engineers to design and implement new technologies and methods for the study of stellar phenomena, and to develop strategies for utilizing them in exploration and defense operations. A strong understanding of physics, mathematics, and astrophysics, as well as experience working with advanced scientific instruments and software, will be critical for success in this role.
