Isolation Shields is a technology on the Applied Sciences technology tree. With a research cost of 40 , it unlocks one Star-system Improvement and allows further research in PEV-Scale Accelerators and Neural Robotics.
"Though difficult to apply outside a highly complex laboratory context, first steps are made in isolating objects from the effects of quantum and gravitational forces. Development of these installations requires enormous resources from both corporations and governmental organizations."
"Before any great scientific advances can be found, there must be money to do the research. By setting up a series of long-term agreements between public and private entities, future investments into large-scale, ambitious projects can be assured."
- Sophons possess this technology at the beginning.
