The laserson probe was a tool used for the modification or repair of electronic technology, including weapons. D84 described its capabilities in saying "it [could] punch a fist-hole in six-inch armour plate or take the crystals from a snowflake one by one". Taren Capel used it to modify the sandminer robots aboard Storm Mine 4 to kill humans. After Capel's death, the Fourth Doctor used a probe to deactivate SV7, stopping it from killing Toos.
