The helmet is designed to sync/dock with an SV module called the "LCX-20V1 SinoViet sight-augmentation module" for extreme-range reconnaissance. It does not mitigate operability, and can be slid back into a passive mode above the user's parietal plate. The helmet also has a low-set, concave rebreather apparatus.
It was manufactured by the Materials Group and tested at the Damascus Testing Facility. Over several years Materials was balancing out the needs of personnel for search-and-rescue operations, appropriately fine-tuning individual components like the long-range sensors and large toolsets like armor-fixed rescue implements. It was designed for the facilitation of search-and-rescue strike teams protecting ONI personnel, as well as critical government and military personnel from capture by Insurrectionist forces.
The armor is widely recognized as the best Mjolnir suit available for high-value target and hostage recovery operations.

- Helmet description: The SCANNER helmet features a number of sensor capabilities and user-adjustable settings that are not yet compatible with standard VISR hardware.
- Body description: The SCANNER is widely recognized as the best Mjolnir suit available for high value target and hostage recovery operations, though it is technically classified as a search-and-rescue variant.
- In Halo 4, Scanner is one of four helmet-only armor sets alongside the Locus, Deadeye, and Strider helmets.
- It is an exclusive to both the Limited Edition and the stand-alone War Games Map Pass along with the Strider helmet and the in-game Falcon Emblem.
- Without the scope attachment, as shown in the concept art, the Scanner helmet would have born a strong resemblance to the Mark V version of the Commando variant helmet, more so than the GEN2 version.
- In both Halo 4 "full set" images and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the Scanner body is the same as the Recruit armor.
- In Halo 5: Guardians, the Scanner armor is the same as the Soldier armor.
