The Satellite Nexus is a facility in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
With the signal monitored by a team of engineers, each Satellite Nexus is capable of receiving transmissions from 4 XCOM Satellites.
Adjacency Bonus: +1 satellite capacity for every adjacent uplink.
- 8 Power
- 5 Engineers (+15 Engineers for each preexisting Nexus, +10 Engineers for each preexisting Satellite Uplink)

- 25 Alloys (50*)
- 2 UFO Flight Computers
Facility Maintenance: §26/month
- If you wish to place the maximum number of Satellites (16), the most efficient placement you can do is putting 2 Satellite Nexuses and 2 Satellite Uplinks in a square shape. This gives you 12 satellites from the facilities, and 4 from the adjacency bonuses.
- An alternative configuration is 3 Uplinks and 1 Nexus in a square shape. While this only provides for a maximum of 14 satellites, only 13 countries require coverage to manage panic as long as the 3 countries left uncovered are in the same continent. This allows for the farming of Alien Abductions.
