Zetatech is among the number corporations that specializes in wetware and computer hardware and software design.
Overview[edit | edit source]
It was 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. The corporation expanded during the Rebuilding period due to the lucrative government contracts. In the past 30 years, Zetatech has diversified their product range and invested heavily in 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.
History[edit | edit source]
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.
First Corporate War[edit | edit source]
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 .
Resources[edit | edit source]
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.
