|Purpose||Enumeration of small Spartan objects|
|Created by||Michael Simkin|
CatForce is an optimized search program written by Michael Simkin in 2015, using brute-force enumeration of small Spartan objects in a limited area, instead of a depth-first tree search. One major purpose of CatForce is to find glider-constructible completions for signal conduits. An early CatForce discovery was the B60 conduit, which enabled a record-breaking new glider gun.
