"Allow for further scanning of systems in the Galaxy Map"
The Long Range Scanner is a ship upgrade that expands your view distance in Galaxy View. The range of the scanner is indicated on the galaxy map by a yellow circle that is roughly twice as big as your normal viewing range.
Unlike other ship upgrades, the long range scanner deteriorates differently. It will deteriorate every time you mount it into one of your ship upgrade slots. It is possible to be destroyed while mounting, given that it has deteriorated enough. It is recommended that you only put it on when trying to get a foothold in a new galaxy, or when trying to explore one.
