7. Threts, IC.
A. Speciality Goods or Services: Smart+ military weapons systems for the Imperium and mercenary units.
B. Baseline Tech Level: F
C. Standard Price Adjustment: + 30 %
D. Corporate Headquarters: FS 1721 A 9C7 216-D S GG Im.
E. Known Shareholders: Imperial Holdings = 5%, N&S = 10%.
F. QREBS: Quality = 8 (+3) [Three Years], Reliability = +2, Ease of Use = +3, Burden = -2, Safety = -3.
G. Remarks: Threts manufactures high quality and very reliable weapons and military hardware. Reports from end users are very favorable in their reviews of Threts products citing the very helpful, interactive, multi-lingual manuals included. Also cited as another quality feature of this company's products are the ergonomic and low mass. Most troops find Threts weapons and systems so easy to use that when the inevitable malefaction occurs that fatalities and destruction are sure to be the result. Squads and some say platoons have been decimated by a Threts malfunction. Which considering the products can be spectacular to witness explaining the popularity of some recorded incidents which have made it out various official archive and on ImpNet nodes devoted to military.
H. Rumors: Some sources indicate that since a Threts anti-vehicle weapon was used the company might have been involved in the Winter Ball assassination attempt.

G. Remarks: Originally the Jump Drive division of DDB it was spun off as a separate entity some time in the late Third Empire. TeleAstronics Drives and Plants are known to be some of the highest quality and are often found in many Imperial vessels, most notably the Navy and Scouts. The products produced by TeleAstronics are slightly above average in reliability and are extremely easy to maintain practically run themselves. The downside is that the company's products tend to be very bulky and have control panels, power and data cable runs that protrude in odd fashion leading to bashed shins among the Engineers who are working on a ship with one of their Drives or Plants on board. Drives and Power Plants manufactured by TeleAstronics are generally considered to be fairly standard as far as safety is concerned.
