Advanced Research Complex
The Advanced Research Complex is a level in Doom (2016). The eighth mission, A Brighter Tomorrow, takes place here. This mission uses the music track "BFG Division". One of Doom's most iconic weapons, the BFG-9000, can be found here.
The Advanced Research Complex was completed in 2136. It is a research, design, and production center for an array of technologies including robotics, weaponry, and sub-space communication. The daily operations of the complex are managed closely by VEGA. The structure of the facility is stated to constitute a giant Faraday cage, preventing unauthorized communications from within.
Technologies which originated in the ARC include BFG development, teleportation, and cybernetic augmentation. The vast array of top-rank intellectuals attracted to work at the ARC has been described as "humanity's brain-trust."
