The M4435 Narrow-Band Scanner is a part introduced in version 1.0.
|“|| Ideal for surveying potential landing sites, this scanner provides detailed information about the planet or moon that it orbits, though this data is limited to the spot directly below the scanner.

The M4435 Narrow-Band Scanner provides high resolution surface scans of the celestial body it orbits. As the description implies, it can only scan a very small area directly below its position. Its purpose is mainly to locate areas with a high concentration of ore, in order to find spots with the highest yield possible for mining operations. Since it delivers a much higher accuracy than the M700 Survey Scanner, it is reasonable to scan areas with high resource concentrations previously identified by a survey scan.
Though not a requirement, for optimal results it is often desirable to place a satellite equipped with a M4435 in a polar orbit. This allows the scanner to eventually pass over and scan any desired portion of the planet or moon. Because the M700 Survey Scanner also needs a polar orbit and you need to conduct a scan with one to use the M4435, it is wise to mount both modules on one satellite.
The M4435 Scanner cannot detect anomalies on the surface, your ship should be equipped with an anomaly finder probe.
The M4435 Narrow-Band Scanner requires a completed orbital survey (see the M700 Survey Scanner) otherwise the scanner won't have access to Kerbnet (but the scanner will still show the current ore on the surface it is flying by).
- Added KerbNet access
- Initial release
