Zeno Droid Technologies (ZDT) is a small droid company whose products appeals mainly to droid aficionados and tinkerers. This is due to ZDT products being widely known for their droids possessing an ease of modification and repair, which makes them desirable for tinkers.
The surgical droid market is not very crowded, so ZDT saw the opportunity to put their best foot forward and produce contenders in this market, especially against Industrial Animation's 2-1B Surgical Droid. While the Lifeline is a rugged design, there has been a recent demand from planetary defense forces, mercenary units and search/rescue teams for a more specialized "combat medic". ZDT produced the "Corpsman" based on the performance parts of the ZDT-410 "Vanisher", allowing fast movement, increased agility and precision manipulators. With some modified programming, the ZDT-190 "Corpsman" Combat Medic has shown flashes of brilliance in its trials. For many who utilize this droid, it is often fitted with aftermarket Combat Bypass Circuits in order to be able to defend itself and its patients on the field of battle. It is able to be fitted with armor plating, but this does not come standard with the unit.
Legal. Surgical droids such as the ZDT-190 are permitted in most regions of the Galaxy.
To create a medical droid, a model to be sold, and as a droid platform for PCs.
