The Advanced Assisted Reactive Mount, or AARM for short was developed by Bio-Stera for a multitude of uses. For normal citizens, it serves as a direct connection to the Eden Network, Pamela and the IVG if available. Through this direct connection to the nervous system, it's possible to monitor vitals and even the mental state of the wearer. This biometric data are often scanned by Observers ans Seekers, then cross-referenced on the Garrison's servers with any previous previous network data to determine if the citizen has become a dissident.
For enforcing personnel or when the situation ask for it, it is possible to mount Holographic Defence Modules or HDM as well as various Utilities. It carries a onboard energy reserve to power the connected attachments, that can also be upgraded.
