EICO (Echo-I Controlled Operator) is a designated model name for robotically human operated platform designed primarily for security in high dangerous environments such as on the Moon and Mars. They can also be used as a workforce in which the environment for human presences is too dangerous or lethal such as asteroids and helium-3 worlds like Mercury.
EICO's have been known to be a precursor to transferring human consciousness into another body such as the one developed for the Avatar Program. However since the technology was young, the operators were known to pilot the EICO's without complete human consciousnessed transfered, only the sense of sight with the rest being operated by the human operator in a drone controlled stationary.
There are several variants of the EICO models with two being bought out by the United Nations.
