"…there's something I've always found interesting about this model of interrogation droid. It typically isn't programmed to know anything about a prisoner. All it knows is that you're the one in the cell—and that means you must be the interview subject. I've had prisoners break when no one's there to listen. They think they're talking to the droid, but it doesn't hear them. You can tell it anything and it doesn't care. It'll just keep working on you until someone tells it to stop."
Captain Khione[10]

The IT-O Interrogation Unit was an interrogator droid developed by the Imperial Department of Military Research and utilized by the Galactic Empire.


"Oh hello, IT-O. Big fan of your work."

The IT-O droid was used by the Imperial regime.

Developed in secret by the Imperial Department of Military Research,[1] IT-Os were used by the Galactic Empire to extract information from prisoners through the use of mind probes.[2] Jedi, however, were known to have been trained to resist mind probes, requiring the use of other methods to procure information from them. An IT-O was attempted to be used on Avi Singh by Captain Bragg, though it never got the chance to torture the Separatist Senator since Clone Force 99 and GS-8 arrived to rescue him. One IT-O droid was used to interrogate Kanan Jarrus aboard Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's Star Destroyer Sovereign. However, torture was eventually handed over to The Grand Inquisitor.[5] Another IT-O was used by Governor Arihnda Pryce to interrogate the rebel Hera Syndulla after the failed attack on the Imperial fuel depot for the TIE/D Defender Elite project.[12]

An IT-O was later used aboard the Death Star to extract information from Princess Leia Organa, although she proved to have considerable resistance to the mind probe.[2] The IT-O was later deployed on Yavin 4 during the Empire's cleanup operations at the former Alliance base.[11] Decades later, the First Order used a new model of interrogator droid that harked back to the IT-O model.[13]
