FrameShiftWakeScanner Ingame

Frame Shift Wake Scanner

Scanner that can calculate the destination of a hyperspace jump by analysis of frame shift energy wake.

— In-Game Description

The Frame Shift Wake Scanner is a utility module that can scan Frame Shift Drive Wakes and reveal the destination system of a ship that recently departed via Hyperspace.


To use, make sure that the scanner is equipped and bound to a fire group (can be done in the ship's right control menu). Maneuver close enough to a Frame Shift Wake] (should be shown on the radar as a grey box) and press the fire button until the scan has completed.

The following engineer materials can be obtained by scanning high energy wakes:

  • Atypical Disrupted Wake Echoes (Grade 1)
  • Anomalous FSD Telemetry (Grade 2)
  • Strange Wake Solutions (Grade 3)
  • Eccentric Hyperspace Trajectories (Grade 4)
  • Datamined Wake Exceptions (Grade 5)
