  • Defensive/sensor technology deployed along Federation border with Romulan Neutral Zone by 2369 (TNG: "Face of the Enemy"; TNG Short Story: "Turncoats")
  • Relies on tachyon beam emissions interacting with tachyon fields emitted by late 24th century Romulan cloaking device designs producing detectable particle interactions
    • Functions to some degree against other similar cloaking device implementations as well, leading to tachyon sweeps as standard procedure for detecting cloaked vessels
