Personal Audio Log
This is the audio log of doctor Marten Shultz, dated August 7, 2145.
We need to amend the operating procedures to ensure that all target teleport markers are properly set and locked before engaging the systems. We had a tragic accident today in Chamber 1 that led to the death of Susan, one of our female chimps. She stepped onto the platform during the calibration phase, and an electrical short engaged the system and literally split her in two. Her torso appeared at the destination marker while her lower extremities remained in place on the source pad. I'm not sure how we've gone this long without this problem appearing sooner but it seems like we've been having nothing but difficulties getting these systems to work.
I don't know where Betruger finds the energy. He's been busy slaving away in the labs for sixteen hours a day trying to debug these latest problems. What's he trying to do; make the rest of us working stiff look bad? Regardless, we have our work cut out for us over the next couple of days going over all the system's logs to see exactly what went wrong with this round of tests.
Doctor Marten Shultz signing off, hoping to report better news next time.
Teleportation Transfers (11-10-2145)
Our systems can only build enough of a charge to have the portals open for approximately 10 to 15 seconds. Enough time to get a team through, but not enough time to send in some of the heavier equipment. Do you have any idea how we can route supplemental power from the stabilizers into the converters? I think if we can increase the hold field by 13% we could achieve full transfer power and open the field for a longer amount of time.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
