After following an "unidentified signal" source, I scanned some data modules and was given a communication of a firmware update. Advising I needed to reboot my system so I went into functions and rebooted but I haven't noticed any differences. Has anyone come across this before and know what benefits, if any there are?

    Are you playing the just released Beta?

  • Thanks, figured it out. It shows up under the data tab in the materials section to be used by the engineers. I'm playing the X-Box One version and have no idea how to do a screen shot. Oct 25 '16 at 6:04

This is a data material for Engineers. Data is used for a variety of different engineering upgrades, depending on what specific material you mean (for example, the Charge Enhanced upgrade for a Power Distributor requires Specialized Legacy Firmware).

Data materials can be a mission reward, but they can also come from surface data sites.
