Don't bother making these unless you have a very high economy and can make multiples, because one is not enough to destroy the enemy faster than he can build and repair. Also it has bad vision, so have a T2 Radar or an Omni up because it can loose moving, high value targets if they manuver out of it's wimpy vision
Make sure you have the radar because as it says above the satelite has really crappy vision.
What if the satellite gets hit by a nuke? can it even make contact with one?

Cheap long range weapon Edit
As far as I can tell the Novax has unlimited range. Its definitely not worth building on small maps, but on ocean maps or maps where T3 artillery is not an option due to range, the novax is a good alternative. Its probably the cheapest weapon with that kind of extreme range.
The satellite is apparently not invicible. While I have seen it take numerous nukes unscathed, I had two observing a friendly experimental nuke blast and they died, leaving the novax centers completely useless. No new satellites were launched to take their place and no option to build a new one appeared.
Satellite can be destroyed by nuke Edit
I have found video which shows that satellite can be destroyed by nuke, so it is not indestructible: https://youtu.be/Osv_CoMQzE4?t=1m20s
