The Short Range Composition Scanner is a module for SRVs and Ships that is part of the default equipment loadout. The module has no mass, does not occupy an Internal Compartment, and cannot be removed.
Similar to the Data Link Scanner, it can be used to interact with various objects, namely organic or geological features, in space or on planetary surfaces. Data obtained from scanning these objects is automatically uploaded to the Codex.
- The Short Range Composition Scanner was added with Elite Dangerous: Beyond Chapter Four (3.3).
