Maximum Impulse Velocity
The Akira-II Class warp field geometry is classified as 'forward-heavy', meaning that the ship's hull design and warp field allow it to sustain higher warp velocities with less power output from the warp drive than other similar mass starships. This allows the ship to cover greater distances with the same amount of fuel as other cruisers in the fleet. The drawback of this system is reduced maneuverability over conventional designs.

36 Ranger Class Starfighters
Launch and recovery of Starfighter craft aboard an Akira is tricky business; launch itself is handled by guiding the craft out of the ship's Launch bay on a rail system, commonly referred to as a catapult. Four catapults are located on the main launch deck, though during normal day-to-day operations only two are used for fighter launches. In emergency scramble conditions, all four catapults are loaded with fighters and launched in ready sequence.

The LORASON (LOng-Range Astrometric/Sensor/Observation/Navigation) unit is a unique sensor suite, considered one of the greatest technological advancements in Starfleet sensor equipment to date. Equipped aboard Federation starships as a detachable pod unit, it provides high-resolution sensor data at ranges of up to 24 light-years, as well as a low-resolution range of up to 60 light-years - all dependant upon scanning parameters. Utilizing advanced Bio-Neural computing equipment, the LORASON unit processes sensor data in real time and is able to display it in its holographic Astrometrics center. The LORASON unit's processing abilities allow it to access all sensor platforms on a starship and combine the data into a single display.

The LORASON-II unit is an upgrade that interfaces with the experimental DIRCOM subspace detection equipment presently installed aboard the USS Artemis.
The DIRCOM (DIrection - Range - COMposition) system is a unique scanning tool recently developed by Starfleet R&D. The system basically operates by sending out warp field pulses over subspace. In Active mode, these pulses look for warp field signatures and resonances, and detect magnetic and polymer make-up when one is found. Though costly on power requirements and the necessity of a static warp field to use, the DIRCOM effectively plots warp-capable objects in subspace and normal space within a ten light-year radius. While in Active mode, DIRCOM scans are easily noticed, as they will 'ping' a ship's sensor systems, much like standard sensor systems.

In Passive mode, the DIRCOM acts similar to a subspace communications antenna, 'listening' to the resonances of subspace within a five light-year radius. Less data is retrieved while in Passive mode, as the DIRCOM is only able to detect warp resonances in subspace and not in real space. Despite this, it is a great advantage in monitoring possible illegal traffic through less-guarded portions of the Federation's border.
