The Lane Hackers are famously using the USI to gather information about valuable cargo being transported.
Lane Hackers are mostly composed of former Los Angeles Ageira Technologies employees who created the extremely complex scanning and database system known as USI (Universal Ship Identification). The system was originally created in partnership with Interspace Commerce. It is installed in Jump Gates and Trade Lanes so the companies can see what cargo the passing ships are holding, allowing for proper tariffs to be levied and shipments to be tracked. The Lane Hackers are famously using the USI to gather information about valuable cargo being transported.
Recently a new version of the system was developed by the Lane Hackers. Not only it scans the network for possible targets and threats, but also records all movements of high priority transports in order to predict their routes. Only most trusted Lane Hackers have access to this software and its powerful analytics.
