This is neat.

A few typos:
two fiber optic lines, who construction
SCP-2325 system will also no function
could be used to protected our own personnel
anti material cartridges
The idea is rather terrific. I'm not wholly sold on the execution - the PL format in particular felt a bit simplistic for their usual tone.
Thanks, I'll have those fixed in a couple moments. I think I had a bit of a misunderstanding with the business case - my intention was to have it sound like a casual internal suggestion for a possible product that he ended up running with in the worst possible direction, rather than a formal business case.
The concept and execution are great stuff, and I'd expect this kind of product from Prometheus Labs - but the PL format is too colloquial (especially its gratuitous usage of 1st person pronouns) and comes off more as a draft for a sales pitch than a grant request.
As I stated earlier I think I had a fundamental misunderstanding when writing the business case - funny that no one mentioned it in the drafting/critique phase, but I'll either swap the format to an internal document (therefore less formal) or rewrite it more formally.
The idea and PL connection are great stuff, but it always rubs me the wrong way when you have to read through a huge slog of experiment logs that don't really add much. Most of them just state things we already could have inferred, or are already outright stated in the article. Novote.
Love scips with a good batch of in-depth testing logs. <3
Really dig the thorough testing here, digging into the mechanics and limitations of these things- excellent use of "show, don't tell".
Enthusiastic +1, and hope to see more from this author in the future
Parameters: D-2289, accompanied by Agent Morgan, will enter SCP-2122. In an adjacent area at Site-48, a mechanical device will shoot D-7887.
D-6227 hit with bullet.
For the B series of tests, why would an anti-materiel rifle be necessary as the weapon? Couldn't they just use the service pistol again, seeing as everybody survived that one? D-class are expensive.
(I get that they died anyway, but it still seems like kind of a waste seeing that they didn't know what the results would be for B-1.)
D-Class are used as test subjects, both for lethal and nonlethal testing.
If you're testing the limits of a SCP, especially one where a human is required to activate it, you're going to end up performing tests that would absolutely be lethal to a normal human.
An Anti-Material rifle has a higher muzzle velocity than a service pistol or rifle, as well as being almost automatically lethal if it hits a person. Both factors may impact how the SCP functions when worn.
It would be interesting to see if some more out of the way projectiles would trigger the effect, e.g. throwing knives, lethally poisonous throwing darts, a lethal dose of tranquillisers (or a lethal dose of anything, really) via tranquilliser gun… Maybe a syringe filled with a substance that would kill in long term (e.g. something radioactive, or slow-acting poison).
Anyway, I really liked this idea. +1
