Communications satellite

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Communication satellites, sometimes abbreviated as COM satellites or comsats, are small, automated satellites placed in orbit around UNSC colonies and in space to relay communications signals.[1] Together, an array of COM satellites form a SATCOM network.[2]

They are found in orbit above several major UNSC worlds, including Earth, Reach, and Sigma Octanus IV. They can be accessed through the planetary network, and AIs such as Cortana and Serina have done so for various purposes.[2]

The BLACK WIDOW communications satellite is a type of COMsat deployed by prowler stealth ships.[3]
