Psi Armor Research (EU2012).png

We've reached a point in our research of the aliens' Psionic abilities and their associated cybernetic implants that we're confident enough to begin preliminary tests of this technology on human subjects. Although the system we have in mind will require the use of a lightweight armor suit with reduced defensive capabilities, this "Psi-armor" should more than compensate by providing a significant boost to our soldiers psionic abilities.It is our hope that bolstering these abilities within our soldiers will provide new insights, as we seek to discover the source of the aliens' collective consciousness. We still don't fully understand the link between the visible psionic abilities we've seen exhibited by the aliens, and their use of psionics as a means of communication. I believe it's very likely we'll find a way to activate the Ethereal device if we can successfully fabricate this armor.
