The sum of the weights of PESA, Ladar, Radar, Laser Comms, Radio Comms that is described in Ultra-Tech (summed the largest devices that is described in Ultra-Tech) is 1050 lbs, app. 0.5 tons, the weight of SM+4 Spacecraft's one modules. And it costs $520K. I omitted comm suites before, and my questions for Sensors' weight is resolved now.

But why the SM+4 Spaceships' Sensor is that much cheaper than the sum of Ultra-Tech devices is still a question to me. Ultra-Tech devices is 26 times expensive than SM+4 Spaceships' sensor...
