USAF Satellite Station Olivia is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287. It is located between Sanctuary Hills and Tenpines Bluff.


An installation comprised of several satellite dishes and an intel room. Before the war, the location was undergoing equipment upgrades as well as pest fumigation.[1] The station received a high volume of signal intercept traffic, requiring intel officers to be on-site daily.[1] Access to the intel room was restricted to intel officers, analysts, and senior officers, where violators were subject to Court Martial.[2] After the war, a group of raiders led by Ack-Ack moved into the facility to loot it.[3]


The surface of the installation consists of two wooden shacks, with minimal furniture, loot, and a satellite dish. There is also an elevated room containing a footlocker, a table, and other random objects. In the mole rat nest just outside the fence to the east, one of the mole rats usually has mines attached to it, capable of dealing substantial damage if it gets close. This mole rat makes ticking time bomb noises (like super mutant suiciders). The mole rats are close enough to the installation that they frequently enter to engage the raiders.

The concrete main building contains an armor workbench and the entrance to the much larger subterranean level of the installation. The installation is home to a group of six raiders led by the minigun-wielding Ack-Ack and contains a significant amount of loot.

Notable loot

  • U.S. Covert Operations Manual issue #10 - In the intel room, on the table. If it is not taken before the zone resets after the location is cleared it will disappear.
  • Mini nuke - In the intel room, on the table.
  • Fusion core - In the basement. In the generator in the center room with the catwalks.
  • The locket for the quest Returning the Favor is in a toolbox in the basement.
  • An incomplete leveled set of power armor can be found near a crashed vertibird to the northwest.
