A speed booster (or advancer) is any mechanism which allows a signal (indicated by the presence or absence of a spaceship) to move faster than the spaceship could travel through empty space. The original speed booster is based on p30 technology, and is shown below.

Diagonal speed boosters, similar to the stable pseudo-Heisenburps, have also been built using 2c/3 wires or other stable components. On December 23, 2016, Luka Okanishi constructed a stable 8-tick glider advancer with staged recovery.
