Assigned to local duty within the 7th Naval District, Satellite was based at Key West, Fla., during her World War I service. She trained crews of new submarine chasers about to be commissioned, by a vigorous schedule of seamanship drills and gunnery exercises, until inactivated about 6 April 1918 for overhaul. Not returned to full service because of boiler trouble, Satellite was struck from the Navy list on 30 March 1920 and subsequently sold
