Jump Gates are usually located at the end of Trade Lanes. When a docking procedure is initiated the jump gate opens up and ship is then hurtled through the wormhole to another system. Ageira Technologies is the sole manufacturer of a Jump Gate technology in Sirius and builds them as a sub-contractor for the 4 Sirian Houses. Ageiras counterpart in Gallia is EFL Oil & Machinery. Usually the control of the Jump Gates, as well as Trade Lanes, are then transferred to the house military forces that own the system. Jump Gates defenses will shoot at any hostile ship that ventures too close to it.
