Deimos is the headquarters for Fleet Supplies Laboratories. Approximatley 114,000 Fleet and Civilian Employees. Deimos contains one of the largest material and equipment testing facilities in the known Galaxy and every non weapon / non vehicle piece of equipment is tested here before it is accepted for Fleet trials.

Besides Equipment Testing, there is a divison of Equipment Development and a Industry Liason Office.

Deimos is aMarsmoon with an average radius of 6.2 km (3.9 mi),[3] and an escape velocity of 5.6 m (18 ft)/s (20 km (12 mi)/h).[4] It is the smaller and outer of Mars's two known moons, the other being Phobos. 23,460 km (14,580 mi) distant from Mars, Deimos takes 30.3 hours to orbit the planet at an orbital velocity of 1.35 km (0.84 mi)/s.[1] Its systematic designation is Mars II.[6] In English Deimos is pronounced  /ˈdaɪməs/ DY-məs; also /ˈdiːməs/ DEE-məs; Greek: Δείμος; also DAY-moce or DEE-moce Physical Deimos surface from 30 km[13]Deimos, like Mars's other moon Phobos, has spectra, albedos and densities similar to those of a C- or D-type asteroid. Like most bodies of its size, Deimos is highly non-spherical with dimensions of 15 × 12.2 × 10.4 km. Deimos is composed of rock rich in carbonaceous material, much like C-type asteroids and carbonaceous chondrite meteorites. It is cratered, but the surface is noticeably smoother than that of Phobos, caused by the partial filling of craters with regolith. The regolith is highly porous and has a radar estimated density of only 1.1 g/cm³.[14] The two largest craters, Swift and Voltaire, each measure about 3 km (1.9 mi) across.
