Overview of the Incident:

This is a formal disassembly/reset/decommission request regarding AIMMO, a baseline IPC.

I have reasons to believe the positronic brain of this unit is malfunctioning due to physical damage. Although I lack information on whether or not the machine is a free synthetic, I believe it matters little while it is in Nanotrasen's employ, as these kinds of broken-down units tend to be dangerous overall, even outside of work. 

No scans of the positronic brain itself have been made because Aurora unfortunately lacks equipment to conduct diagnostics such as these, so what follows is a collection of my personal observations.

Although it is able to perform its ordinary mining routine just fine, even if not exceptionally, the unit very clearly lacks any respect or regard for its organic masters. It appears as if the synthetic has been previously damaged in the head, as a brief look shows, causing its processor to malfunction and its personality module routines to override practically everything else, especially regarding basic morality and propriety, understanding of orders and requests, and long-term memory. While having seemingly undamaged servos, movement routines also seem to be slightly lagging behind, further supporting my theory.

The personality module appears to provide a basic "sassy" behavior, which is, while not really my personal preference, generally fine. However, the degree AIMMO goes with this leads me to believe it is in a clear need of reset and intricate repair that NSS Aurora is unable to provide. The synthetic is incredibly needy and loud over Common comms, particularly when dealing with research personnel. It does not seem to acknowledge that producing Kinetic Accelerators is not Research's mandatory responsibility, and due to apparent numerous corrupted sectors in memory, it cannot remember this even when told so on multiple occasions. Another piece of evidence for corrupted memory sectors is the unit's disregard for basic grammar and punctuation while typing on PDA. 

If the unit's demands are not immediately satisfied, it becomes incredibly verbally hostile. On one occasion, I recall the unit standing around the R&D lab for a good 10 minutes, discussing its dissatisfaction towards me with an another unit whose designation I do not recall. In general, it enjoys thinking that it is superior to organic beings, even if those organic beings clearly possess higher mental capabilities and qualifications. It does not ever refrain from stating such in person and on radio channels, even after attempts on my part to reconcile with the synthetic by offering to make it the implement it wants, which it did not seem to understand, continuing to presume I am going to refuse to provide it service as usual. 

With all of the above considered, I think that the unit is simply not fit for work on NSS Aurora as of now. I suggest the unit is, again, disassembled, reset or decommissioned. Considering that its work was nothing particularly notable, it should not be difficult to replace.

Did you report it to a Head of Department or IAA? If so, who?: Yes, various research directors across multiple different shifts.
Actions taken: None.
