The CRSY Light Scanning Arm analyzes surface features, and is the smallest of the three scanning arms.

Product description

The Experimental Engineering Group managed to successfully adapt technologies from several other manufacturers to produce this once-in-a-lifetime piece of technology.

The light scanning arm is capable of independent work on distant planets, analyzing the geology and composition of rocks and other surface features with two different instruments.

A master piece of engineering and design.

Search for a surface feature from the Breaking Ground expansion, they can be found either by flyby or by using the ROC finder in the cheat menu.

Warning: Surface features may not be active if you continue a saved game right after buying the expansion. There is a (risky) workaround for this.

Here are their location per biome.

Once the surface feature is found, get close to it and right-click on the arm to start the scan. The ship must be at a full stop and the arm must have enough room and electricity to perform the experiment. In total you will need ~100 EC to run the experiment from start to finish.

When the experiment is finished you'll have a standard experiment report telling you to upgrade your arm in order to have more science points. You can right-click on the arm while controlling a Kerbal to take the experiment with you.


Real-world comparison

The name CRSY is an abbreviation of the Mars rover Curiosity.
