- This article is about an After War technology. See Psycommu System for the Universal Century variant, DRAGOON for the Cosmic Era variant, or Bit Control System for the Anno Domini variant.
The Flash System is a Newtype-use system installed in several different mobile suits. The most common function of the Flash System is to allow Newtype pilots to control multiple unmanned Bit Mobile Suits for attacking and overwhelming the enemies. For GX-9900 Gundam X, the Flash System was also needed in the activation of the Satellite System. However, its successor, the GX-9901-DX Gundam Double X, does not have this requirement. The system can also be used to increase overall pilot performance at the expense of the ability to control Bit Mobile Suits, and the only known mobile suit that uses the system this way is the GB-9700 Gundam Belphagor.
Developed by the United Nations Earth during the 7th Space War, the Flash System was installed in each of their Gundam-type mobile suits for the various reasons mentioned above. After the apocalyptic end of the war and the death or disappearance of most Newtypes, the Flash System became obsolete, as most Gundams surviving the war fell into the hands of non-Newtypes. In AW 0015, the New United Nations Earth developed the prototype NRX-016 Rasveht, which again allowed a Newtype pilot to control Bit Mobile Suits. The Rasveht was however destroyed in its debut battle and since then, no new Mobile Weapons using the Flash System have appeared.

Notes & Trivia
- The Flash System has many similarities to the Psycommu system used in the Universal Century, though it never demonstrates any instability or side effects.
