Survite nanoswarms are what make transhumanity's scattered lives among dead rocks possible. Nanofabrication eliminates the necessity (though not the convenience) of harvesting complex chemistry whole. The hungry cornucopia machines require only raw elements, but in abundance.
Set a hive on the ground and leave it to cook. Survites will filter through regolith and rock, relaying their findings up the chain, back to the hive. The longer the hive works, the farther it can spread its network, building comprehensive geological maps. Survites and survite hives are one of the most popular pieces of nanotech in the system, used by Consortium mining concerns and Brinker prospectors alike.
