Target acquisition system

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Target acquisition system (TAS) is an external helmet attachment compatible with the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor.[1]

Overview[edit]

Specifications[edit]

External target acquisition systems tend to be bulky and complex.[2]

Usage[edit]

TAS modules are used for target acquisition.

Known modules[edit]

There have been four observed modules for external target acquisition systems, each with its own distinct physical appearance.

The DROCTULF module on the Zvezda helmet.

DROCTULF[edit]

Manufactured by Meyer e.V., the DROCTULF module incorporated technologies adjacent to Project THEIA to reduce the bulk and complexity of external target acquisition systems.[2] The DROCTULF module has been observed to be compatible exclusively with the ZVEZDA-class Mjolnir helmet.

The GUNGNIR MOD 6 module on the Stormfall helmet.

GUNGNIR MOD 6[edit]

Manufactured by Hannibal Weapon Systems and based on Project GUNGNIR, the GUNGNIR MOD 6 adds new weapon interfaces, extended IFF range, and deeper battlenet synchronization among GUNGNIR-equipped Spartans.[3] The GUNGNIR MOD 6 module has been observed to be compatible exclusively with the STORMFALL-class Mjolnir helmet.

The MOTHACID module on the Celox helmet.

MOTHACID[edit]

Manufactured by Watershed Division, the MOTHACID module is used to detect, analyze, and identify alien artifacts and signal sources. Though Spartans have also adapted the instrumentation package to interface with Mjolnir fire control systems.[4] The MOTHACID module has been observed to be compatible exclusively with the CELOX-class Mjolnir helmet.

The ORCUS module on the Rampart helmet.

ORCUS[edit]

Manufactured by Chalybs Defense Solutions, the ORCUS module is used by Spartan intelligence units for locating targets.[5] The ORCUS module has been observed to be compatible exclusively with the RAMPART-class Mjolnir helmet.
