An advanced [[AI]] called [[EDI]] (Enhanced Defense Intelligence) is installed aboard the Normandy.  EDI operates the Normandy's electronic warfare and cyberwarfare suites.  She is capable of hacking wireless networks and taking control of an enemy ship's computer system.  In absence of a crew, EDI also can operate the whole ship, though she defers to Joker as a pilot due to the desirable unpredictability of human piloting.

The Normandy is armed with two unidentified projectile weapons- these may be mass accelerator cannons, or [[disruptor torpedo]] launchers.  The [[Thanix cannon|Thanix Magnetic-Hydrodynamic cannon]] can be installed.  The Thanix cannon suspends a liquid iron-uranium-tungsten alloy in a magnetic field, shaping it into armor-piercing projectiles and accelerating it to a fraction of c.  The weapon manifests as a blue beam.

On the defense side, the Normandy has GARDIAN [[point defense|defense]] lasers for use against missiles and fighters, ceramic [[ablative armor]] to protect against energy weapons, and [[kinetic barrier]]s to deflect projectiles from [[mass accelerator]]s.  The armor can be upgraded to Silaris armor, composed of carbon nanotube sheets woven with diamond via Chemical Vapor Deposition; these are crushed by [[mass effect technology|mass effect fields]] into super-dense layers able to withstand extreme temperatures. The process also compensates for diamond's brittleness. The ship's kinetic barriers can be upgraded with Cyclonic Barrier Technology to substantially improve their performance.
