The PIONEER helmet features passive, redundant environmental scanners whose the sensor fidelity and high-bandwidth storage capacity make it ideal for detailed environment scans used in War Games and intelligence analysis scene reconstructions. The helmet also has a duel-locked rebreather (YV-65) leveraged in hostile environments. It also features a twin-plated visual sensor for increased range of spectrum. The suit also has PNR-S7 split-convex pauldrons.
As a result of the UEG's pioneer initiative in order to claim new territories for colonization, Acheron Security set aside a budget and design team specifically for such endeavors, and within months Pioneer was presented. The suit was eventually put into full production and tested at the Acheron Trauma Sim.
It is intended primarily for reconnaissance operations in unknown or hostile environments, and was constructed to endure the rigors of a potentially hostile, alien environment, and to optimize overall performance through inhibitor mitigation. It also pairs advanced environmental sensors with Acheron's latest threat detection systems.
The armor's first, and most notable, usage was during the first highly-classified exploration efforts of Installation 03 by Ivanoff Station's research deployments. Since then the Pioneer variant has been used in assisting in the security and protection of over two dozen field teams and science detachments. Pioneer suits have also been used to protect science teams on colonies and even to protect planetary engineering rigs.
