How do I open a military black box?

The question is in the title. How do I bust into a military black box to obtain its contents/read its data? I’ve found them in a couple previous games before, but I never knew what to do with them…

If it’s any help, I’m using the 0.6 release because I’m not exactly a huge fan of the ranged nerf, being mostly a gun-user in my games.

You extract the data from special consoles inside Laboratories, however there’s no real reason to do so other than to continue some very basic NPC quests

Black boxes aren’t actually boxes, but are flight data recorders.

yeah, i pretty much just leave them where i find them.

Oh. Well crap, I’ve been hauling them around for nothing, thinking they contained useful stuff.
