The Evasive-13 individual field disruptor was an individual field disruptor manufactured by Aeramaxis Technologies. It countered existing shield technologies by emitting energy signatures capable of briefly disrupting defensive energy fields.
The Evasive-13 consisted of a fifteen-centimeter-long case containing a control computer, twin projection shells each containing a disruption bubble unit, and a power cell. The disruption units activated when the twin shells were slid away from the power cell, generating a small energy shield which enveloped the user.
The intensity and longevity of the disruption bubble could be varied depending on what field the user was attempting to penetrate. At its lowest setting the Evasive-13 could pass through low-powered energy fences and maintain continuous use for over an hour. While at maximum setting it could pass through most military-grade fields, maintaining this setting would drain the power cell in less than four minutes.
In addition to counter-acting energy fields, the Evasive-13 could be utilized in hand-to-hand fighting; anyone coming into contact with a full-intensity disruption field received a painful and potentially fatal energy blast.
The Evasive-13 was first released during the reign of the Galactic Empire, using then-cutting edge technology and costing 25,000 credits to buy. Around the time of the Battle of Yavin more powerful disruptors were introduced, relegating the Evasive-13 to a midrange unit available at a more affordable 11,000 credits for paramilitary groups. One such group used Evasive-13 units to infiltrate Dr. Evazan's fortress on Ando in an attempt to kill him, though their attack was foiled and they were killed by Evazan and his companion Ponda Baba.
