Body-area-network suits were jumpsuits used by Forge agents. They were created from a combination of salvaged alien technology.
BAN suits had conductive fibres woven into them that turned the suit into a computer network. The suits had PDA functions, an uplink to Oracle, GPS functionality, and mobile communication. They had touch-sensitive screens on the left arms.
BAN suit helmets had earpieces and built in cameras with face-recognition. Their visors had heads-up-displays and could tint themselves to protect the wearer's eyes from the sun.
Standard BAN suits were dark blue. They had the phrase "For King and Country" on their arms.
Edith Crumpton was the scientist in charge of creating the BAN suits.
In early 2000s, urban field agents began testing the standard BAN suit.
Sometime later, the Forge developed BAN flight suits. The Seventh Doctor stole two of them and gave them to Lysandra Aristedes and Sally Morgan. Lysandra and Sally used them to get onto the train transporting Derleth in 2015. (AUDIO: Project: Nirvana)
