UFO Power Source

The power supply systems recovered from the alien craft are perhaps the most important piece of technology we've retrieved so far. Although we could spend years researching the intricacies of this equipment, the urgency of our development process means we've had to rely on theoretical analysis more than I would prefer. Despite the risks involved in attempting to reverse engineer this technology, we made a number of small steps towards a fully adapted power cell. Our most important discovery so far, the element we've been referring to as "Elerium", is the vital component that provides nearly limitless energy to the alien power cells. Although there is still much to learn, we believe it should be possible for the Engineering team to begin assembling a makeshift power cell based on our initial findings, which may prove useful in the development of an advanced fighter craft. However, we'll certainly want to do further analysis of the Elerium element that fuels the alien power systems.

Grey Market Description
UFO Power Source

This power cell is apparently capable of generating enough energy to power the alien craft and its requisite systems. The Elerium core must be the key to its amazing efficiency.
