Damage Control and Security Intranet (DCSI, or “Dixie”) is a decentralized-processing computer network on board XTS Firehawk. It incorporates both secondary computer nodes cannibalized from the Adventurer III and hardware from a variety of other (notably Höhenschar and Dark Fold) sources. A variety of detection systems, including thermal sensors, chemical sniffers, CCD cameras, and microphones are linked to the network. Redundant datalink loops insure that damage to the network and its nodes will erode, rather than collapse, DCSI’s operations.

DCSI’s software is of original design, incorporating a number of expert systems and autonomous agents. It monitors environmental conditions continuously and provides status reports to the main computer, as well as to damage control stations. DCSI will respond directly to perceived threats as appropriate:

  • Fire – DCSI will activate an alarm upon identifying an uncontrolled or hazardous fire. It will activate localized water or halon suppressant systems as appropriate, and seal off ventilation to reduce oxygen flow to the fire and limit dispersal of toxic gasses.
  • Flooding – DCSI will activate an alarm upon identifying an unacceptable level of water below decks. It will seal adjacent watertight hatches, and activate bilge pumps.
  • Radiological Hazard – DCSI will activate an alarm upon identifying hazardous ionizing radiation. If the source is internal, DCSI will seal off ventilation to limit the spread of hazardous particulates. If the source is external DCSI will activate an alarm and implement NBC protocols.
  • Toxic Gasses – DCSI will activate an alarm upon sensing any of a variety of toxic gasses in unacceptable concentrations. If the gasses are detected internally, DCSI will reroute ventilation to limit internal spread and vent the gasses to the outside. If gasses are detected externally, DCSI will activate an alarm and implement NBC protocols.
  • Security Breach – DCSI tracks the movements of authorized passengers and crew and their interactions with shipboard systems. The tracking process is assisted by identification badges and/or communicator transponders, but DCSI has some capacity to track individuals and activity without these aids.
    • If DCSI detects an unauthorized interaction with shipboard systems by an authorized passenger or crew, it will notify an appropriate senior crewman
    • If DCSI detects an unauthorized and hazardous interaction with shipboard systems by an authorized passenger or crew, it will activate an alarm.
    • If DCSI detects a presence that it cannot reconcile with the known locations of authorized passengers and crew, it will activate an alarm and seal doors and bulkheads to contain the intruder.
