Antares, a Federation survey ship

In starship classification, survey ships were specialized starships that were designed to share common features with both scouts and science vessels.

The official website for the Star Trek movie states that the USS Kelvin was used primarily as a survey vessel. [1]

In 1958, T'Mir suggested she might be able to arrange for Mestral to be aboard the next survey ship that visited Earth. Mestral declined, as he didn't wish to wait 20 years just to perform statistical scans from high orbit; he preferred to explore the planet from the ground. (ENT: "Carbon Creek")

In the 2260s of the alternate reality, information on Starfleet and non-Starfleet survey vessels was located in the Federation database. (Star Trek Beyond)

Survey vessels were mentioned in a list of vessel types and in a list of Starfleet vessel types. These appeared to the left of the personnel file for Balthazar Edison. [2]
