"The satellites can read a terrorist's DNA before he steps outside his spider hole. We're gonna neutralize a lot of threats before they even happen."
Nick Fury to Captain America[src]

The S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellites were a system of satellites designed by S.H.I.E.L.D.. Many of which where sent out of orbit with the use of the Lemurian Star. The system went down following the HYDRA Uprising.


"Agent Sitwell, I just received word from the Triskelion. You have orders to report to the Lemurian Star immediately."
"So I assume you'll take his place?"
"In your hunt for Santa Claus? No. I'm taking a transport jet back to the Hub where I can quarterback the field teams via satellite. Someone's gonna have to pull your asses out of the fire when things go south."
Victoria Hand and Phil Coulson[src]

After the Battle of Gulmira, S.H.I.E.L.D. tried to hack into Tony Stark's computers, but Stark detected the hack and traced it to a S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite owned through a shell corporation, and S.H.I.E.L.D. was able to masquerade the hack as business espionage before Stark destroyed the satellite.[1]

The system detected the electrostatic event from the Chitauri Virus killing Frank Whalen.[2]

S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters used the system to find a train for Phil Coulson that he and Grant Ward fled when they were chased by mercenaries hired by Cybertek.[3]

Skye used the system to track Grant Ward and Lorelei.[4]

Project Insight Satellite

Coulson's Team used the system to trace the Tag Rounds fired on Deathlok by Agent Felix Blake.[5]

Eric Koenig informed Skye that S.H.I.E.L.D. satellites were no longer operational when she wanted to use them to see what happened during the Raid of the Fridge.[6]
