I think you can use a Contact Sensor for this. You could attach it either to your satellite or your colliding object model. You might have to write a dedicated plugin depending on what your use case is, but this sensor returns Contact informations, which include the 2 collisions implied in the contact and the force that gets applied at the point of contact. This tutorial explains more about the contact sensor and how to write a plugin for it Cheers
