Only the most trusted officers and researchers are allowed into the Covert Ops Center, which conducts all experimental research for the Confederate Intelligence Corps.
The Covert Ops allows for the production of Ghosts at the Barracks. The Covert Ops also has research upgrades for Lockdown, Ocular Implants, Cloaking Field and Moebius Reactor.
The Science Facility is no longer in the game, and therfore the Covert Ops has been scrapped as well. The Ghost Academy now enables the production of Ghosts and researches their upgrades.
