"Commander, direct your technicians to scan the Carrion Spike for life-forms."
―Darth Vader, to the Conquest's commander — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

A life-form scanner[2] was a form of sensor device used to detect living beings from a distance.[1] In its Sentinel Base facility, the Galactic Empire used such scanners of Idellian Arrays make. One such system was also included on the Secutor-class Star Destroyer Conquest. Darth Vader used the vessel's scanner to prove the corvette Carrion Spike was unmanned.[3] There also existed small, handheld models, like the one used by C-3PO on K43.[1]
