In addition to high security COSMOS there is also additional low security COSMOS in Kenobanala constellation and several null security COSMOS agents in 9HXQ-G constellation in Catch.
If your plan is to run most or all COSMOS missions, it is advisable to check the shopping list and first farm the various complexes, sites and belts listed below for items various agents will ask you for later anyway.
Most missions that give BPC rewards seem to give out randomized BPCs, thus the rewards listed here are intended only as examples.
The Araz constellation typifies the feudal system found throughout the Amarr Empire. Wherever widely different ambitions and talents meet a power surge is inevitable. Uriam Kador, one of the five royal heirs, is the liege lord of Araz and he likes to employ the 'divide-and-conquer' approach in his governing; allowing his feudal lords to duke it out between themselves, making it unlikely they will join forces against him and also giving him a clear idea of their strengths and weaknesses. The two most ambitious and powerful noble families in the constellation are the Arachnan family and the Methros family. The two families have been rivals for decades, but now their rivalry is on the verge of escalating to a full fledged war between them. Kador is closely monitoring the situation, not the least because of the sudden appearance of a sizeable force of Blood Raiders that seem intent on taking over the constellation.
The ship requirements and limits vary mission by mission. A guideline for encounter missions is to bring a frigate/destroyer for L1 missions, cruiser/battlecruiser for L2 and L3 missions and a battleship for L4 missions. Few missions will require you to cover a very long distance (+100 km) multiple times with very little combat so bring a frigate with MWD for those. You will also need a hauling ship for low volume hauling missions. An exploration frigate with cargo expanders works well but a instawarping ship is recommended for the low security courier missions.
High security Amarr COSMOS
This list contains all agents in or directly connected to Amarr COSMOS. These agents offer one or more missions that can be ran only once. Failing the mission or letting it to expire will prevent you from ever doing that mission or any mission that is in the same chain. Do not even talk to the agent unless you are going to run the mission, as soon as you talk to the agent you get a mission offer that expires in seven days.
The COSMOS demand the player to have high enough faction standing to gain the missions. Corp standing can not be used instead of faction standing. Additionally COSMOS missions require higher standing than normal missions. 2.00 for L2, 4.00 for L3 and 6.00 for L4 (normally 1.00 for L2, 3.00 for L3 and 5,00 for L4).
Look at each agent's page for more details on their mission.

- ^ a b To get inside the complex to this agent you need Ader's Keycard that you get from Odan Poun. This keycard is not consumed on use so you could borrow one from someone else.
- ^ The agent is level 1 so he doesn't technically require any standings. But he demandsa an item that you get from Odan Poun (level 3).
- ^ The missions also require Manel Kador and Ader Finn but the mission chains are interwined.

COSMOS sites can be found scattered around the COSMOS constellation. These sites are static and never change position.
These sites drop items needed in COSMOS missions and materials for making storyline modules. None of these sites are known to drop any faction or deadspace modules.

Many of the COSMOS missions require items that you can acquire before starting the mission allowing you to complete the mission immediately after starting it. This list contains details on what items you can collect beforehand. The items are not all listed on market but can be traded through contracts so check if anyone is selling some of the hard to collect items.

Null security Amarr COSMOS
9HXQ-G in Catch contains several Amarr COSMOS agents in null security space. As with other null security COSMOS constellations there is not much information available.
Update - 14/04/2020 The below agents - all give you a simple mission of - Mine and Return.
|Desra Nekri | |Rahli Saronu | |Galhar Lahara
The mineral in question, is not a mineral but a GAS - Lime Cytoserocin This gas can be mined by using a Gas Harvester I or II. However, it can also be found on the local market. The agents are asking for a return of 200m3 or 20 units. This will easily fit within an exploration ship such as the Astero. However, be wary of the local residents. I noticed multiple fleets awaiting visitors.
ISK is rewarded as is faction standings with the relevant agent corp and Faction (Amarr)
