Only if it can only be put on JFs then it might be doable... Otherwise that's a terrible idea allowing people to gain intel lazily.

what is lazy about scouting out a pos? You assume there's a directory to all of them somewhere.

It should be a deployable, like the moon siphons, that takes a long time to run (24hrs+) and then sends you a report on the contents. Further, like MTU's, blowing one up should trigger a suspect flag only.

Basically if you are getting free intel on POS', the POS owner should also have the opportunity to identify that someone is setting them up the bomb, and active POS owners should be able to stop the free intel gathering process outright.

POS are easy to find. If your talking about a POS that belongs to a specific corp it is still not hard, it just takes awhile.

I still say no to this scanner as proposed in the OP.

Make it a Concordable offense to use it in high sec unless you WD the corp that owns the POS and I might reconsider this.

I would agree that the scanner should only be usable in war if POS could not be pulled down during the 24 hours before war is active.
