Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi being checked for weapons at Hondo Ohnaka's pirate outpost

The weapon detector or weapon-detector was a type of security scanner. A sensor device designed to detect power cells and other commonly used weapon profiles, the data was then transmitted to a dedicated computer for virtually instant analysis. Weapon detectors were used in a broad range of locations with restricted access, such as military bases, spaceports, prisons, detention centers and other restricted areas. Their purpose was to prevent unauthorized weapons being brought into secured areas. Weapons detectors were capable of detecting vast majority of weapons, although some weapons, usually carried by professional bounty hunters, assassins, and spies were capable of evading standard weapons scans. The Corporate Sector Authority used many weapon detectors to maintain order on various worlds, one of them was Bonadan.
