An Imperial probe droid

"An Imperial probe droid."
"It's a good bet the Empire knows we're here."
Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo[src]

A probe droid, also known as a recon droid or probot, was a type of droid that could be used for reconnaissance. There were at least two known models of probe droid: the DRK-1 probe and the Viper probe droid. They could be equipped with both shields and blasters.

The Sith Lord Darth Maul employed three DRK-1 probes to search for the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi on the planet Tatooine.[1]

When the Rebel Alliance moved its headquarters from Yavin 4 to the planet Hoth, the Empire sent probe droids all over the galaxy to find the new base. One such droid, a Viper model having arrived on Hoth from its carrier, began to transmit a live feed of what appeared to be a Power generator to the Empire, leading to an attack a short time later. The droid, however, was intercepted by Han Solo prior to the invasion, warning the Alliance and giving them some time to prepare.[2]
