Zetatech is among the number corporations that specializes in wetware and computer hardware and software design.

Overview[]

Once a relatively small company based out of Cupertino, California, Zetatech had always maintained its strong presence in Night City. Specializing in computer hardware, software, and wetware design, the company was among the main providers of neural processors, microchips, and robotics on the American market. By 2013 and 2020, their products included everything from cyberware, to cyberdecks, to computers. After the Fourth Corporate War, the corporation expanded due to the lucrative government contracts during the Time of the Red in the Rebuilding era. Since 2045, Zetatech has diversified their product range, continuing in cyberware and computer systems, but also investing heavily into avionics research and manufacturing to become one of the major players in the transportation sector. Their aerodyne gunships and security, combat, and utility drones are currently their most recognizable products, used widely by all megacorporations.[2]

History[]

Zetatech started as a new high-tech company doing its best to grow and diversify in Cupertino, California. It carved itself a small niche in the industry through the traditional espionage, and strategically applied violence. Having made it over the first hurdle, Zetatech attempted to build a heavy name for itself by expanding overseas, the assured toward success, and a high inflow of stable Eurodollars. This meant encroaching on markets occupied by other companies, most of which were not inclined to share their profits.[3][4]

First Corporate War[]

During the First Corporate War, Zetatech was aligned with Orbital Air, and waged a large-scale Net-based attack on Euro Business Machines (EBM). EBM was able to repel the attack and knock Zetatech out of the war in October of 2004 .[5]

2024 - 2045[]

In the wake of the Fourth Corporate War, though still considered a second tier corp[6], Zetatech found itself in an advantageous position to expand. Many rival corporations were weakened or out of business as a result of the war, and Zetatech moved to snatch up many government contracts during the Rebuilding era.[2] It emerged as a household name for economy 3D printers[7] and overtook Segotari as a world leader in the production of Agents[8], with its Grade A series being one of the most ubiquitous Agent models anywhere.[9] Most significantly, Zetatech developed as a major name in the transportation sector, producing economical and sturdy aerial vehicles such as the Zetatech AeroVox, Destination, and Herakles.[10][11][12]

2077[]

By 2077, Zetatech was a world leader in the manufacture of cyberware equipment and aerial transportation, producing high quality products for every budget. It was also a major shipping enterprise. Among its best-selling products were the Zetatech Atlus, its flagship product used by Trauma Team and N54 News, the Zetatech Surveyor, used by organizations like Kang Tao and MaxTac, and the Sigma K.54 cyberarm.

Their NC headquarters was located in the Zetatech Building on Berkeley Avenue.[1]

2079[]

In 2079, Zetatech had greatly expanded its influence. It had achieved over 80% domination of the North American market, and claimed to have completely eliminated cyberpsychosis in its latest cyberware thanks to a revolutionary new immune system booster that greatly reduced the number of negative immune responses in implants. Zetatech had a record breaking year in 2078, and expected to break it again in 2079. They had grown their holdings to include two additional offices in Watson and Westbrook.

According to the NC Inquirer, Zetatech's recent dominance came from ongoing secret tests and a discrete agreement with city leaders.[13]

Resources[]

As of 2020, three AV-4 assault vehicles, three helicopters, one private jet based out of San Francisco International Airport. Each office has an emergency first aid infirmary, but only the San Francisco office has a surgery capable trauma center. The military hardware available to Zetatech is only of moderate power. High-tech personal arms, armor and vehicular weapons systems are readily available, but only limited amounts of heavier weapons are available, and usually they can not be obtained on short notice. Zetatech has no airlift capability of its own, but could arrange access to heavy lifting aircraft given enough time.[4][3]
