DeJoker, yes, please put the equipment notes in the new thread. As for the details on the planet, what you have is a cursory search. Deep research would turn up a little more of what you are asking, but you haven't had time for that yet. Also, since no reports have been filed, it will all be preliminary survey stuff. Bottom line, you can keep digging, but either there is no more relevant information, or more information that should be there is missing. You decide which one you think it is and proceed.
There is a decent article in Frontiersman 8 on Chronocoms. It takes them a bit farther than I want as the author adds text messenger capability, albeit inconvenient such. I rather like the 'frontier feel' of SF, that mix of low and high tech that comes with lasers and atomic (vice fusion) engines.
