Developed as part of the USSA's Deep Sleep project, A.T.H.E.N.A.'s purpose is to record sensory data from those inside hibernation pods. In order for a connection to be made, the subject under study had to take an experimental serum and then use the Deep Sleep pods developed by Dr. Carol Bernard. Once the connection is made, A.T.H.E.N.A. continues to take data from the subject regularly even after the subject awakes from hibernation, causing massive headaches that cannot be calmed via conventional drugs. Though the primary test subject of the project is Sofia Daguerre, A.T.H.E.N.A. also monitored Carol Bernard, Nowak and Lee before their deaths. Due to A.T.H.E.N.A.'s coding, the AI will continue to take data readings until either its kill switch is activated or it is transferred to a nearby Assaultron.
