S.I.D. - Acronym for Space Intruder Detector, an orbiting satellite with white and red striping that scanned the vastness of space for incoming alien spacecraft on the British syndicated science fiction series U.F.O./SYN/1972.  The voice of S.I.D. was provided by BBC newscaster Neil Oxley.

Space Intruder Detector (SID) - U.F.O.

SID transmitted its findings to S.H.A.D.O. (Supreme Headquarters, Alien Defence Organisation), a multi-nation alien defense complex with secret bases on Earth and the lunar landscape.
