Particle Beam Projector

From Growing Horizons

The Particle Beam Projector has been developed from the Wakefield or Plasma Particle Accelerator, capable of bringing particles to several ten GeV over a relatively short length of accelerator. As the Particle beam projector has lost much of its power and versatility thanks to the Shrivatsa System, it's still has its uses, as the charged particles can be used to disable Autonomous Attack Vehicles, satellites and other unshielded orbital infrastructure. As such Particle Beam Projectors are only in use on large bombardment combat craft.

Additionally, Particle Beam Projectors can be used to deliver specialized Smart Dust for electronic warfare as well as potentially gaining physical access to an opposing spacecraft, satellite or installation.
