There are 3 sizes of defense satellite, each being the equivalent of a single section ship. Each colony can support up to ten satellites of a given size, but medium and heavy satellites require a large enough world to support them. A bonus number of five light satellites can be acquired for each Orbital Station that is in orbit of your world, these bonus satellites will orbit the Station(s). A large satellite carries about half the firepower of a Dreadnought. Each platform class typically has a missile system built into the design, but the rest of the weapon configuration is up to you.

Each satellite design can also be named, much like ship designs or fleets.
