The Satellite Defense Platform is a space station in the Lylat System. Constructed by the Cornerian Army, it is a stationary defense platform and appears to be entirely automated. It is armed with a powerful laser cannon capable of taking out an entire formation of missiles or fighters in a single shot. However, it takes a considerable amount of time to recharge and can only attack a target within the cannon's line of fire. As time passes, the Satellite will slowly rotate counter-clockwise, sweeping the entire system for targets.

On Hard and Expert difficulties, the Satellite can be captured by Brain Spoiler enemies. If captured, the Satellite must be visited and the Brain Spoilers destroyed to reclaim it. If ignored, the captured Satellite will fire upon Corneria, dealing significant damage to the planet's surface.
