- Main article: Unidentified Signal Source
A Mission Target is a type of signal source that contains a mission target, and only spawn for appropriate mission types undertaken by the player for minor factions.
When a player scans the system with a discovery scanner or Nav Beacon, they will get a message that directs them to a specific celestial body within the system. The signal will spawn within the sphere of influence around the target body and is accompanied by an audio message: "Mission Objective Detected".
Dependent on mission, but usually within a sphere of influence around a celestial body.
0 - 4, depending on mission.
