 There is a terminal you can interact with outside a building by Jacob Mittney in Prodromos. Read the "Lost Drones" message on the terminal near the stairs of the building by the Tempest. Mark the location coordinates of the malfunctioning drones with a beacon. 

 One can be found a cliff to the NE of Site 1: Promise. Scan it and then head up the hill and interact with it when you get the Place Beacon prompt. 

 Another can be found on a cliff north of the cave and the big Kett base. Scan it and place the beacon as you did with the first. 

 Another can be found in southern Presson Dunes near the mountains, a crashed ship is nearby. Head for the smoke from the ship and check the nearby cliff for the drone. Scan it and tag it!

 One can be found between some shoreline rocks on the north side of the lake. Scan it and tag it.

 One can be found on the outskirts of the map in the NW, all the way near the edge of the border. Scan it and tag it again!

 The last can be found south of Bain Massani's location in Presson Dunes by the Kett generators. Scan it for the final beacon.

      well, this quest is bugged. accidentally found one of the drones, the quest appeared, but the icon from the terminal didn't disappear (and also there are no messages). my friend helped me find all 6 drones, the quest was done, but the terminal remained hanging with the icon.

        Was Able to find all of em except "Another can be found on the cliff near the Kett facility. Scan it and place the beacon as you did with the first."
        Assumed he meant the first Kett facility you find, that research place, but just cant find it around there.

          My terminal is blank but has a quest marker. I've since found a drone and a newer quest marker appeared at the same terminal however it's still blank and not interactable.
