Arakyd Industries,[3] also known simply as Arakyd,[12] was an arms[2] and droid manufacturer that notably produced dwarf probe droids,[3] ID9 seeker droids,[6] internal systems probe droids,[7] Viper probe droids, and Viper recon droids.[6] It also produced RA-7 protocol droids specially for the Galactic Empire[8] and created KX-series security droids to provide Imperial facilities with more efficient security,[1] as well as ST2 concussion missiles and tubes for starships.[2] In creating the KX-series security droid, Arakyd worked with the Imperial military to bypass a law prohibiting battle droids. They found a loophole and marketed them as security droids.[13] Arakyd Industries manufactured droids on Vulpter,[14] a planet located in the galaxy's Deep Core[15] where it also had a data storehouse.[1]
