NASDA Satellite Array

NASDA satellite array.

NASDA, which stands for North American Space Defence Agency, was formed in 2080 in order to protect North America from conventional and nuclear attack. In 2081, NASDA began construction of a satellite defense system composed of laser satellites and nuclear-armed missiles, which was completed by 2082.

In 2085, during a routine systems check, NASDA developed a fault that caused it to launch its nuclear missiles across the world, thus initiating the Collapse. Its anti-missile defenses failed to protect North America from the nuclear counterstrikes.
