The Cockpit Voice-Activated System, aka COVAS, is a cockpit voice assistant installed as a standard system in all ships. Its purpose is to provide system information and analytical support. It is issued by the Pilots Federation in accordance with statute B7249 of the Interstellar Transit Charter, and for insurance purposes it is illegal to travel in most systems without a COVAS.
The Cockpit Voice Assistant (COVAS) relays real-time information about your ship and your surroundings via your helmet, and is in essence your ship's 'voice'. The Pilots Federation has approved some new COVAS variations, giving Commanders new ways to personalise their flight experience. Each ship comes equipped with Verity and Victor COVAS options by default.

COVAS primarily provides audio notifications for certain ship functions and statuses, such as the countdown to a hyperspace jump, deploying or retracting landing gear, fuel scooping, when another ship has initiated a scan, and when the ship is under attack.
