I just want to find out how satellites work and what they do.

Thanks,

Henry TG

They are sensors (like the ones on your ship) except they are stationary in space and cover a wide range.

yeah ok, how do you get them into space though, that's what I can't figure out. Can you transport them to different places?

Yes satelites are stationary and cannot move, however you can get a big enough capital ship that has a hangar bay. Then you can dock the satelite inside of the ship you can thus transport it.

You'll need a tractor beam to get them aboard, of course.

I'm thinking about buying one. So you're saying that if its on the ground (as it's brand new) you'll need a capital ship to get it into space?
Also another question. Who knows what the range is of a satellite (Sysat T-24 to be precise) is?

Yes, a ship that has both a tractor beam and a docking bay (not a hangar bay).

As for the scanning range, you can compare the number of sensors on the satellite you are looking at to the diagrams on the scanning rules for a visual idea of range.
