Scanners are in-game items that are required for a ship to launch to space. There are many different scanner types that serve different roles for players. The best way to categorise them would be by giving them two types: "Cargo Scanners" & "Long Range Scanners".
Cargo Scanners are often used by cargo pirates or police. the purpose is to scan the cargo of a ship from long range and without having to get up close to them, where your ship is in more danger.
Long Range Scanners, like the Deep Scanner, are used to see ships normally too far away to detect. This is used in locating and tracking down hostile vessels and other such situations.
