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 Tatooine.[1]

When the Rebel Alliance moved its base to Hoth, the Empire sent probe droids all over the galaxy to find the new base. One of these, a Viper probe droid, arrived on Hoth and transmitted its information to the Empire, which launched an attack. The droid, however, was intercepted, giving the Alliance some warning and time to prepare.[2]
