The Dark Suit is Xenotech; it is of Luminoth origin.

Xenotech is a form of technology of alien origin as defined by Samus's Scan Visor during Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. This excludes Human or Chozo technology because Samus's Power Suit is Chozo in origin, and Samus is herself human. The Scan Visor describes machinery of Luminoth origin as Xenotech, although many other examples of alien technology could be deemed Xenotechnology.
