This Federal Stellar Observatory uses standard technology developed by CONCORD, and is being operated by the Gallente Federation as part of its efforts in support of the New Eden Common Defense Initiative. Even though EDENCOM co-ordinates the overall defense of stellar systems across the cluster, the core empires are committing their fleets to supporting the defense and fortification efforts. Federal forces are manning and defending Stellar Observatories across Gallente territory.
The Stellar Observatory is carrying out vital work monitoring the star for signs of Triglavian stellar manipulation and aiding in the formulation of defensive operations in the system. While the Triglavian interest in stars makes the work dangerous, it is vital to the defense of New Eden. EDENCOM and the core empires are dedicating considerable resources and personnel to this effort.
