Description

The Actuated Recovery Manipulator is Triskelion-Armstrong's contribution to the salvage industry. Using relatively inexpensive technologies and being available for any vessel with a high-stress mounting, it became a mainstay of some of the more underfunded salvage, recovery, and search-and-rescue operations across the system.

Some pilots have used this system to enter the industry as independents, though it's important to note that only legitimately salvaged derelicts transfer to the salvager. Authorities may pay a finder's fee or a bounty for ships with a prior owner, provided the salvager is clear of any standing warrants or bounties. In addition, the recent expiration of the patent on SAN-BUS protocols have revealed a capacity for the ARM to handle ore, providing pilots with a more affordable alternative to drones.
