This facility is one of the most advanced and expensive of all the Imperial structures. When there are imperial forces engaged on a planet, typically there will be some sort of imperial presence in orbit to assist with the logistics of battle below. However, these craft rarely entail a battlefleet. The presence of an Orbital Uplink Facility, however, means that there is most definitely an Imperial Warship in orbit above the planet.
These facilities are rarely employed by the Imperials - only in the rare instances when a Rebel force is heavily entrenched, and bathing the entire planet in fiery death unfortunately not an option is this facility used.
When constructed, it allows the Imperial general to call down orbital bombardment strikes on Rebel positions. These strikes tend to be quite inaccurate, but extremely powerful, bathing an area in destruction.
Without the uplink facility, however, targetting from orbit is too risky, and so the orbiting Imperial destroyer will be unable to fire on ground targets, so the Rebels will be hard pressed to destroy the facility as soon as possible.
