A master fire director (also known as a MFD) is a weapons control system which allows a crewman to operate several independent weapons from the same console, linked for effect. A MFD consists of an independent and dedicated sensor system (possibly with an optional communications system for controlling a missile salvo) linked to single control system.
A MFD is used to improve the accuracy of its ship's weapons. It can have a number of socket weapons "slaved" to it (enabling its lone crewman to replace all the crewmen of all the socket weapons "slaved" to it), but in this case, all such weapons must be used against the exact same target.
