"We have them tied to the end of a string."
―General Armitage Hux on following the Resistance fleet[src]

A hyperspace tracker was a type of active tracker with the ability to detect starships travelling through hyperspace, a feat not thought possible until the First Order utilized it against the Resistance[2] in 34 ABY.[3] The science behind hyperspace tracking was studied by the Tarkin Initiative during the reign of the Galactic Empire,[1] and files about these studies were discovered by Jyn Erso during the Battle of Scarif[4] in 0 BBY.[5] The science was not perfected for several more decades when a team assembled by General Armitage Hux discovered how to implement the technology.[1]

Part of the technology used in the hyperspace tracker was a complex static hyperspace field generator, which enveloped arrays of databanks and computers in a localized hyperspace field that accelerated their calculation speeds to unimaginable rates.[1]
