The pulsemass generator was a type of technology developed by the Hapes Consortium.
These generators were developed by the Hapans from Imperial gravity well projectors. These variants of the gravity well technology were deployed as mines in hyperspace[source?] where they created a false image of realspace masses. Thus, starships were kept in realspace near the generators or brought them out of hyperspace near them.
The pulsemass generator were noted as being small devices that were launched from firing tubes on a vessel. The Hapan Battle Dragon carried them and their use of the weapon resulted in a similar effect to those of the large gravity well projectors on an Immobilizer 418 cruiser. A Hapan Battle Dragon features four tubes with four pulsemass mines per tube, each mine works for some minutes within a short radius.
Only Hapans made frequent use of this technology and they restricted it to military use.
Behind the scenes
Each mine lasts 1 minute according to Starships of the Galaxy, but Starships of the Galaxy, Saga Edition states 10 minutes.
The Hapan pulsemass generator works on a similar principle as the Imperial Hyperspace pulsemass generator, deploying mines, however the Imperial device destroys enemy starships instead of blocking hyperspace travel.
