Unidentified Artificial Mechanism 1 is an unnamed suit upgrade.
During the events of Metroid Fusion, Samus was infected by X Parasites and much of her Power Suit was surgically removed. She was given a vaccine made from the DNA of the Baby that saved her life. While this meant that Samus was now completely immune to the X Parasites, it also gave her a Metroid's weakness to cold. Because of this weakness, Adam conjectured that the new Fusion Suit would reject the Ice Beam upgrade, so the Galactic Federation never tried to create a downloadable version of the beam for Samus.
Towards the end of the game, Samus defeated the SA-X, a copy of Samus born from the parts of her Power Suit that had been surgically removed after her initial infection. Before she could absorb the Core-X left behind by the SA-X, it escaped into a collapsed tunnel. As Samus attempted to return to her gunship, she was attacked by an Omega Metroid in the Docking Bays; she fought back, but without the Ice Beam, she could not harm the beast. When all seemed lost, the SA-X intervened and attacked the Omega Metroid with its own Ice Beam; as it was still weak from its earlier battle with Samus, however, it was quickly overpowered.
This time, Samus was able to absorb the SA-X's Core-X, giving her Fusion Suit one final upgrade. Like the Varia and Gravity Suits before it, this new suit granted Samus additional resistance to damage. It also changed the color scheme of the Fusion Suit to orange-on-yellow, causing it to resemble her old Varia Suit prior to its surgical removal. Finally, the suit restored the Ice Beam again. All of these effects are the results of Samus absorbing what was literally herself prior to her infection, surgery, and vaccination.
"In Metroid Fusion, it seems to have established that "Samus can't use the Ice Beam because she has inherited the nature of the Metroids", but why at the very end is she unconcerned when she regains the Ice Beam?"
Yoshio Sakamoto: "When she absorbed the core of the SA-X (the perfect condition of Samus), she basically reconstituted her genetic condition. She didn't recover the physical damage of her amputated suit, but she did recover her genetic condition." 
- When the UAM 1 is acquired there is not a flash like there is when the Varia and Gravity suits are acquired.
