Jump pads are platforms used to transport people and cargo from ships down to the surface of planets by creating a micro hyperspace conduit.

A technology still in it’s infancy, line of sight is required between the ship and it’s destination. The recommended distance from ship to ground is a maximum of a hundred feet. Longer distances are possible, but require a jump-pad at both the sending and receiving point to create a stable conduit.
