A couple of ideas for Imicus Scanning and Salvaging

My characters skills are about to get good enough to really attack Ninja salvaging properly, so I used the Eve Fitting Tool to design a couple of ideas. One is based on an excellent tutorial video I watched today, which fits a Scan-Only Imicus. Its job is to scan down any targets I want, but not actually go into them.

In both cases, EFT shows you how CPU-hungry the Expanded Probe Launcher is, consuming two-thirds of the available resources.

BUT I think its more likely I'll use the following: an all-in-one scanner, relic/data site runner, ninja-salvager.

I'll keep the relic/data analyzers in the hold and dock at a nearby station to refit if I need to.  The drones are there for defense or light-combat, but the MWD gives us 2400m/s of speed, which should get us out of any problems. The Cargo Scanner will help us do relic/data sites, and the salvage tackles and twin salvagers will pick up the goods as quickly as possible.
