  5. Research Notes

Research Notes is where we publish items of interest and developing ideas from Canonn commanders that are not yet suitable for incorporation into the Codex either due to the amount of conjecture and uncertainty or their speculative nature. Have a read through the articles here and discuss and expand on them with fellow Canonneers in our Discord server.

Mamba Aerodynamics

turned_in_not,
The Mamba is a medium ship manufactured by Zorgon Peterson. They took an unreleased racing prototype and fitting it for use in the Pilots Federation, adding hardpoints but keeping its high speed. Its design is so unique compared to other ships, sporting sleek curved lines like imperial ships while sporting two massive engine clusters on…

Cobra MkIII Aerodynamics

turned_in_not,
The Cobra MkIII is a small ship manufactured by Faulcon DeLacy. It was designed as a true multipurpose ship, being able to hold its own in combat, carry a reasonable sized payload for its size, and light enough with large enough internals to jump far. The design has been so successful that it’s one of…

Type-7 Transporter Aerodynamics

turned_in_not,
The Type-7 Transporter is a large ship manufactured by Lakon Spaceways. It was designed as a dedicated freighter and it’s iconic shape has led many to compare it to a brick. Due to this informal designation, it was not expected that the Type-7 Transporter would be in any way aerodynamic, even considering its laughably stubby…

Alliance Chieftain Aerodynamics

turned_in_not,
The Alliance Chieftain is a medium size ship manufactured by Lakon Spaceways. It was designed to be sturdy yet maneuverable compared to other ships in its size and weight class making it a common choice for anti-Thargoid combat. At first look it appears at least semi-aerodynamic due to the presence of what appears to be…

Sidewinder MkI Aerodynamics

turned_in_not,
The Sidewinder MkI is a small size ship manufactured by Faulcon DeLacy. It is the first ship that most newly registers Commanders fly, often as a loaned ship from the Pilots Federation.

Aerodynamics of Spacecraft

turned_in_not,
With the release of the Odyssey branded software upgrade to the Commanders of the Pilots Federation’s fleet of ships, they are now capable of atmospheric flight. Although to-date, only tenuous atmospheric entry is allowed by the software, this brings into question the potential future of such updates and whether or now denser atmospheres will one…

Landscape Expedition

The Landscape signal is a pre-horizons audio signal that can be heard when pointing in the general direction of Sagittarius A* from the bubble. It gets its name from a distinctive structure visible in the spectogram that looks like a wireframe drawing of a mountain. Some commanders describe the sound as Space Whales. Research by…

Ghost Rings

CMDR Chewcat1 and LCU No Fool Like One Why are some large rings invisible, and Is there a definitive way to calculate whether the rings will be visible or not with just data from the Full Spectrum System Scanner(FSS)? Commander Chewcat1 set out to answer that question. The answer to this question could help us…

Phasing Multi-Cannon

Abstract During Disrupt Azimuth’s Resource Campaign commanders who supported it were able to get as reward a unique weapon: pre-engineered multi-cannon with phasing experimental effect.The last part is what we would expect to be “unique” since there is no other in-game way to make phasing multi-cannons. But it was found out that phasing is not…
