Locatormutor Tracer Core Interface

(aka Tracer)

Locatormutor Tracer Core

This interface takes the form of a socket installed in the navigational circuits. When a Locatormutor Core (sometimes known as a Tracer Core) is inserted into the socket, the navigational circuits are capable of reading out the coordinates of each of the six segments to the Key to Time. These coordinates can then be fed into the Directional Unit for a space-time jump.
