any of various devices making use of gravity or gravitational waves, as (a) sensors that use gravitational waves to detect objects in space; (b) a system that creates artificial gravity
I've been trained in space navigation, but not on these ships. If something goes wrong with the gravitics, I'm afraid there’s nothing I can do about it.
Once their drives burned out, the incoming missiles would be impossible to track on gravitics, and even Manticoran radar had a maximum detection range of little more than a million kilometers against such small targets.
The ship wasn’t big, and her mass tanks were nearly empty, but probably optics were registering her, and maybe, by now, gravitics.
By using thrusters, she avoided the sensors which most tactical officers tend to rely upon—the Peeps' gravitics—but she was mother naked to everything else in their sensor suites.
The ship was fully equipped with gravitics. There was no hint of freefall inside this space.
