The Bit Control System is a system in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 that delegates and controls the remote bits/fangs of mobile suits.
Description & Characteristics
The Bit Control System is a combination of hardware and software that remotely controls and manages the bits/fangs for the mobile suit pilot. The system itself can be controlled by a pilot or an AI system. If managed by a pilot, the pilot must be able to coordinate and configure the actions of the bits. Usually a normal human can't successfully manage all the bits as it draws attention from the pilot in combat. The Bit Control System assists in delegation of the bits to allow the pilot to utilize the bits with less difficulty. The Bit Control System is most effective with an Innovade or Innovator pilot; because of their use of quantum brainwaves allow the pilot to mentally direct the bits to make immediate changes in action during combat. While a normal human would have slower reaction time with the system, which is a liability in combat; this is why a Haro or other AI system is usually present for bit controls in combat.
The Haro is a self-contained AI, able to assist the pilot in controlling the bits with advanced abilities to effectively compensate for a human pilot's coordination abilities. Bit control has always been delegated with a Haro within Celestial Being; on the other hand, Innovators use their quantum brainwave abilities to control their bits/fangs without the need of a Haro unit. Similar systems have been used by a computer, without the need for a Haro nor quantum brainwaves to help delegate controls. Celestial Being and Innovators have such a system(s) before AD 2307, however the Earth Sphere Federation did not successfully develop such a system until after AD 2312.

Sefer Rasiel Trials
In AD 2302, Celestial Being begins testing out new weaponry for its fourth generatin Gundams. In order to test out the concept of a remote offensive weapons system, CB first tests out the offensive weapons system with the developes the GNR-000 GN Sefer and GN-XXX Gundam Rasiel specifically designed to test out the GN Sefer's primary armament, the GN Proto Bits. The Raisel could dock up to six unmanned GN Sefers to form the Sefer Raisel. The concept of the bits is later tested on the GNY-0042-874 Gundam Artemie. Although development of the GN Sefer and the Raisel would lead to the support machines GNR-001 GN Arms and later the GNR-010 0 Raiser, development of the bits continued.
Throne Fangs Development
Through hacking into the databanks of Veda, Celestial Being's supercomputer, Ribbons Almark was able to gain access to the inner workings of Celestial Being's technology, save for the true workings of the GN Drive. With most of Celestial Being's data, Ribbons contacted Linear Train Industries president Laguna Harvey and had him develop three mobile suits to be piloted by his children, Team Trinity. Out of the three Throne Gundams, only the GNW-002 Gundam Throne Zwei would use the Bit Control System, giving rise to the multipurpose GN Fangs. These guided weapons could be used as both small beam guns or beam daggers that would stab into an enemy MS.
