Elysium Force-Field Generator
High above the city of Elysium, built into the peak of it's central mountain, there's an underground mega-structure necessary for the survival of the inhabitants bellow. Because of this stations necessity, it's the most heavily guarded location within the Westech Martian territories. Due to the risk associated with a force-field shutdown there is a constant staff of engineering and military personnel, including many different robots, androids, and automated systems. This is by far the most massive single structure ever constructed by Westech, and for all they know, humanity as a whole.
Purpose / Function
The force-field provides protection and life support for the inhabitants of Elysium. Without the force-field, the pressure would be too low on the island to support complex land life. Westech vessels are equipped with G.F.M. technology that allow "phasing" through the force-field unscathed. Any other material bodies, like vessels or meteors, are destroyed on impact, as their matter is physically incapable from passing through the sphere.
The outer ring of the installation is 28 miles in circumference. There are 28 stations built around the perimeter, one mile between each station. These stations are devoted to force-field amplification, venting, and entrance into the sub-surface portion of the facility. The complex is the shape of a vertical cylinder, 28 miles in circumference and 800 feet in depth. The facility is split into four quadrants with three radial sectors (rings). The outer-most ring contains battery and coolant infrastructure. The middle ring houses the power generators, and the inner sector ( is where the force field generators meet to form a huge cylinder through the core of the facility.
Elysium Mons defense platformElysium Mons is fitted with a series of defense platforms to protect from air or land threats. There is a centralized automated targeting network, but military personnel are stationed on sight in case of an emergency, and as maintenance.
Gravity Induction Engines.Housed on the middle ring of the complex, these massive induction engines constantly generate power from the gravity of Mars. This power is channeled directly into the force-field generators, any surplus is stored in batteries in the outer ring. .
