The Surveyor Probe Mk. IV, or Probe, often referred to as the Little Scout, is a launchable camera that was created by Slate to help safely explore hazardous environments. It has several abilities for exploring the Solar system : Forward and rear facing cameras for taking black-and-white images and detecting Ghost Matter, a distance indicator, a seismic stability indicator (only of use on Brittle Hollow), floodlights, a hazard indicator, and a warp core for recall to the player.

It can be launched from the spacesuit or from the ship with the right bumper on an Xbox gamepad or the right mouse button on a default PC keyboard and mouse setup.

The probe does not launch straight at the crosshairs while piloting the spaceship, instead, it launches slightly above and to the right.
