Oerlikon Stellar Observatory's Information

One of the first facilities constructed in Zurich following the discovery of the system in 741 AGS, Oerlikon is a mid sized civilian research post observing the interaction between the system's enormous G3.3 III class yellow giant and FTL travel. Approximately 40 light years from any other stars, the Zurich - Picardy corridor represents the furthest stable manmade subspace link created thus far without Ageira's supergate technology, prompting great interest from Gallic researchers. While the giant star isn't unusual in its own right, subspace links to yellow giants like Zurich's have proven to be unusually difficult to establish. The distance of Zurich from other systems also provides a chance to study the effects of jump drive use in deep space, without a nearby gravity well to anchor to.



The scientific opportunity in Zurich prompted EFL to lobby for funding to establish a research station in the system, a request which the Crown was quick to grant. The royally financed station was instrumental as a depot while EFL built the tradelane from the Picardy Gate, and is being used as the company’s primary staging ground for further projects in the system. While no results on Oerlikon's findings have been published thus far, several prominent EFL researchers have stated off the record that the data collected has proven to be of great interest.
