Heisenberg compensator

NotesImages
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Heisenberg compensator1

An element of the transporter system. The Heisenberg Principle states that it is impossible to know both the location and momentum of a subatomic particle with perfect accuracy. Since this is a basic requirement for the function of the transporter, a Heisenberg compensator is necessary to allow the system to operate in spite of the principle.1
