Scan Booster overview

The Starfield Scan Booster is a Miscellaneous outpost object which you can place at any of your Starfield outposts.

You can build an unlimited amount of Scan Booster(s) at any one outpost.

Build this to double the range of your hand scanner. Note, this only boosts your scanner if you are on the same planet as the one you built the Scan Booster on.
