The improvements we’ve made to the Geist-M29 stealth suit over the last few months have been significant; in recent trials it’s thoroughly surpassed even our wildest expectations.

Unfortunately, we’re faced with two immediate issues—both of which threaten to upend the entire project. The first is to cut down production cost. As it stands now, the suit will be too expensive for mass-production. It’s limited what we can do with the inner circuitry—though complex, it’s necessary for complete functionality. Using inferior quality materials would mean we’d be back to square one: visible breaks in the optical camouflage, the suit’s micro-coils overheating, or possible radiation leakage.

The second dilemma is a common drawback to most optical camouflage—the suit can not get wet. Water instantly disrupts the system, causing the suit to immediately short circuit. We’ve spent months trying to waterproof the design, but all attempts have proven ineffective.

As it stands now, the cost factor is our main obstacle to overcome. If not solved, I fear it may ultimately lead to this project being shelved.
