A thermal imaging scanner was a device that allowed a user to detect living beings based on body heat.[1]


During the Clone Wars, the Citadel, a high-security prison on the planet Lola Sayu controlled by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, used thermal scanners to prevent security breaches from people sneaking in aboard starships that delivered supplies there. In 20 BBY, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and their strike team, on a mission to rescue captured Jedi Master Even Piell from the prison, bypassed the thermal scanners by carbon-freezing themselves so they would not register.[1]

In 1 BBY, when crime lord Cikatro Vizago smuggled the Ghost crew onto Lothal aboard his starship, the Broken Horn, the Imperial cruiser verifying the ship's permit used a thermal scanner to see that there were several more living beings onboard then there were supposed to be.[2]
