Orbital Combat Debris — Any matter ejected from orbital or interplanetary vehicles as a result of combat, and which is capable of causing Foreign Object Damage (FOD) to other vehicles or vessels of any type, is defined as Orbital Combat Debris. It is considered to be a navigational hazard and the generation of excessive amounts of OCD can lead to fines and other penalties. Most nations maintain bureaus of orbital debris specialists who oversee space sweeping programs. As with most civilian programs, their power to prevent the generation of debris during times of war is virtually nonexistent. Combat debris has a dramatic effect on the design of military orbital vehicles, which have large shields designed to protect the hulls behind them. The shield are designed to both decelate and absorb the incoming debris, to varying effect.

Osler Sequence — One of the Eylau Sequence's "mates," the Osler Sequence is a system specializing in the biosciences. As such it can only be used for research and treatment, and any attempts to subvert it for other uses such as interrogation or weaponization have failed. It can however, run on the uniform networks of individual military personnel and be used for medical treatment in the field and even in combat, so long as the involvement is purely treatment related.

The Osler Sequence can operate on a much lower activation base than the Eylau Sequence, and it is commonly used worldwide by schools, universities and various government organizations.
