Sensor Sweep Question/clarification

In the description of effects of a Sensor Suite individual action, it says you get a linked test die if you succeed.

Normally, a linked test costs you 1D to the linked if you failed, but that is missing from the examples in the book and on the board for this action.

So, is it properly no penalty for failing it, or should you lose a die if you failed it?

Consider them special linked tests.

Oh boy, more exceptions!
