Joint Equipment Systems is a military products manufacturer with branches in the Federated Suns, Ghost Bear Dominion and Republic of the Sphere.


The Joint Equipment Systems plant on Alshain was captured by Clan Ghost Bear, but they used the facility reluctantly at best.[2] The Panpour facility remained under the control of the Federated Suns.

During the Jihad the Panpour facility suffered some minimal capital and personnel losses (around 10%), but by 3079 the factory's output was at 100%.[3] The Alshain facility suffered no personnel losses and was operating at full capacity in 3079.[4]

During the Dark Age JES constructed a manufacturing facility on the world of Zebebelgenubi in the Republic of the Sphere; this satellite facility produced a range of state-of-the-art military and industrial support vehicles, including JES' line of missile transports.[1]


Joint Equipment Systems has manufacturing centers on the following planets:

The JES facility on Zebebelgenubi was located just outside the suburbs of Gray Valley City, the planetary capital, and produced a range of equipment including missile transports that were primarily sold to the Republic government but also in smaller quantities to the governments of the Draconis Combine, Federated Suns and Lyran Commonwealth.[1]
