Silver Age Beyond
A computer designed to track other devices (major gadget)
The tracker can also be programmed in the field using Tambda or Maurocastrum.
If the user can converse with an individual for at least two minutes while scanning them with the device, the machine will note and store all relevant details about that person as it relates to tracking them later. As a result, the user can later use Mind + Computers rolls as a complementary roll to any Urban or Wilderness tracking rolls involving that individual.
This device was once common on many fringe worlds in the Galactic Imperium. Upon arrival, a bounty hunter or law enforcement official could obtain a few data files on escaped criminals and wanted renegades. The tracker would retain information on fingerprints, footprints, height and weight, scent, and distinguishing characteristics.
