The Electronic Countermeasure (ECM) Generator is a commonly used device in the universe of Andromeda. Employed by militaries across the known worlds, ECM generators create electromagnetic fields around an individual which help to protect them from Smart bullets. The devices are relatively small and can be incoporated into armor systems, as either individual components or as fiber mesh weaves. Although they may make the wearer invulnerable to smart bullets, the generators are not effective against energy-based fire like the plasma bursts emitted by a Force lance.
