Like most things, this is a modification of a standard comm sat that I have used before. Solar arrays removed and a PB-NUK Generator added. These are placed in packages like the MCSP and the PCSP for insertion around planets and moons. They create a coverage web around the planet that allows remote control of craft from any side.
These little satellites are critical to the operation, and there are twenty-two (22) on board.
