The Sysat T-20 represents the Galaxy's standard in Reconnaissance Satellite systems. It provides a highly mobile, survivable surveillance and command and control (C2) platform. Each carries a 3 meter-diameter umbrella-like HandEye™ reflecting dish to collect carrier signals from almost anywhere in the Galaxy.
Constellations of T-20 satellites are often used in 'disputed systems' to monitor and report on sovereign-space or treaty violations. This practice - commonly referred to as 'satellite seeding' - entails dispersing twenty five T-20 satellites in checker-board fashion across a system.
Select governments are rumoured to be sponsoring R&D into a prototype version of the T-20 (code named the X-28) for pirate baiting operations. Leaked reports suggesting that the secretive Bantha Works Research Station have equipped these protoypes with False-Front™ projectors have neither been confirmed nor denied by public spokesmen. False-Front™ is suspected to allow military satellites to appear as freighters/capital ships on scanners of passing ships.
