"We have thousands of probe droids searching the galaxy. I want proof, not leads!"
Admiral Kendal Ozzel — (audio) Listen (file info)[10]

The Viper probe droid, commonly referred to as the Imperial probe droid, was a model of probe droid manufactured by Arakyd Industries[1] that was used by the Galactic Empire[2] and, later, the New Republic,[7] 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.[11] During the Galactic Civil War, Death Squadron[10] launched Project Swarm, an operation which deployed 100,000 Viper droids[12] 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.[10] The droids communicated using Omnisignal unicode.[13] After the Fall of the Empire, Gideon's Imperial remnant still used these probe droids.[8]
