Alpha Probe is a generic UNSC term referring to one of the Slipstream Space probes used by Remote Scanning Outposts. It sends out radio pings and analyzes the spectrum from radio to X-ray.[1] The Alpha Probe, like all probes used by the RSOs, is designed to be able to survive the transition from slipspace to normal space in order to collect data.

Appearances Edit

In 2552, the Alpha Probe of the Archimedes, a remote scanning outpost at the edge of the Sigma Octanus system, detected a Covenant Fleet en route to the planet Sigma Octanus IV.[2]
