A comscanner is highly technical, a button array for advanced inputs and a pop-out screen to read the results of a scan. Thanks to the digital screen, the button layout changes based on whether the device is in "com mode" (for communications) or "scan mode."

A comscanner is considered standard equipment for any spacecraft's away team. It can be programmed to send messages at regular intervals and has a range of over 1,000 kilometers.
