Background: Equipped with an electromonoscope and calibration dials, IFTS handheld trackers were used to sweep the horizon for incoming ships. Capable of being preloaded with a suite of starship profiles, of relaying alerts to select comlink frequencies upon registering matches, and of tracking a craft’s flight vectors and trajectories, various models of the IFTS tracking gun saw use by both sides during the Galactic Civil War, as well as long afterward.
