Not to be confused with Survey Satellite.

The Orlets-1 Survey Satellite is a satellite launched at LUN in Mission 8. Much like the Space Telescope, Voyager-X Antenna and the Lunar Module Ascent vehicle, it can take photographs.

This satellite is very useful to place in orbit around other planets, in order to see what's going on there. The two solar panels allow the satellite to remain in orbit indefinitely, due to its self-contained power system.  

It is light enough to be launched by most rockets without much difficulty. It generates 6 energy and uses 6 power generation.
