The Assistant is a small resource scanning and relay probe. It comes with the X-58 Kronos Long Range Expeditionary Craft.
When deployed, it enters a polar orbit around a body with its complement of Ant thrusters, and starts scanning for resources with its M700 Resource scanner. Higher resolution of ore concentration is achieved with the M4435 Narrow Band Scanner. Data is transferred either with the relay antennas or the powerful Comunotron 88-88.
Maneuvering and reorientation is achieved with the built-in reaction wheel of the drone core and with RCS Thrusters.
Electricity is provided by two 1x6 solar panels as well as a small fuel cell for low-light regions of the outer solar system.
Remember to lock down the fuel tanks after docking and setting the drone core to hibernation for power savings.
