Specially designed for deep space exploration, and reconnaissance; Probe droids are employed in science and military applications. They gather data and transmit it to their masters over vast distances. Tenacious hunters and searchers, probe droids (or probots) have a variety of sensors. Most probots are launched in one-way pods which transport the droids to their target locations. Once there, they gather information. If confronted with a hazard, the droids can protect themselves. If confronted after their main mission has been completed these droids can self-destruct.
