After you speak to Ada your next quest step is to scan a terminal that is located on Europa. Open your Director and then open the map of Europa. Over the Bray Exoscience you will see a quest marker for Armor Synthesis Introduction. Land wherever you like and make your way to this quest marker. Once you are at the location interact with the Terminal to collect data from it.

Collect Processor

When you scan the terminal the next step is to collect a processor. The processor you are looking for is located on the other side of the room. Go through the double-doors and grab the processor off the work bench.

Return to Ada and Tell Her Your Findings

Take the data from the terminal and the processor and head back to Ada on the Tower. Speak to her then attach the processor to the machine behind her when prompted. After the processor is attached you need to speak to Ada again. She will give you the Synthweave Strap. This item allows you to create ornament pieces of any armor you’ve acquired. Ada will then have a new quest for you called Tying it All Together (9 steps).
