"We have thousands of probe droids searching the galaxy. I want proof, not leads!"
Admiral Kendal Ozzel[src]

The Viper probe droid, commonly referred to as the Imperial probe droid, was a model of probe droid manufactured by Arakyd Industries[1] and used by the Galactic Empire[2] later the New Republic[5] for deep space exploration and reconnaissance. The droid had five manipulator arms, a blaster and a communicator. They also featured a self-destruct mechanism and repulsorlift engines.[2] The 11-3K variant of the droid was used on Vandor.[6] During the Galactic Civil War, Death Squadron[7] launched Project Swarm,[8] an operation where they deployed these droids across the galaxy in hyperdrive pods, in order to find the Rebellion's base. A probe deployed to the planet Hoth eventually found the base, which set into action the evacuation and battle that took place soon after.[7] The droids communicated using Omnisignal unicode.[9]
