to detect starships travelling through hyperspace


A hyperspace tracker was a type of active tracker with the ability to detect starships travelling through hyperspace, a feat not thought possible until the Federation designed a hyperspace tracker in the 2390s.

The science behind hyperspace tracking was studied by the Federation in the 2380s but was not put to use until the 2390s.

The science was not perfected until one decade later when a team assembled by Samantha Carter and Typhuss James Kira discovered how to implement the technology.

Part of the technology used in the hyperspace tracker was a complex static hyperspace field generator, which enveloped arrays of databanks and computers in a localized hyperspace field that accelerated their calculation speeds to unimaginable rates.
