A boser is a directed energy device. It is possible to utilise a boser as a smaller spacecraft weapon.

One well-known manufacturer of bosers was Breitenbach.

RS Glossary entry Edit

Boser: Directed energy system employing coherent (Bose-Einstein condensate) matter, usually with a laser or particle-beam precursor.

All of the crewed trikes carried some form of armament, ranging from single-use grasers to gigawatt-yield Breitenbach bosers.
