The ChimpanzIII is the fallen satellite seen briefly at the end of Cloverfield.
Tagruato's subsidiary Bold Futura was involved in the hunt for a downed portion of the Japanese government's satellite ChimpanzIII. Bold Futura's satellite "Hatsui" was instrumental in the search and identification of the ChimpanzIII fragment off the coast of New York.
However, due to CLOVERFIELD events, efforts to retrieve the ChimpanzIII fragment have been postponed. Bold Futura has since been unreachable, having closed all lines of communication.
- J.J. Abrams has stated that the scene with the satellite was included in the film as a nod to those that followed the viral marketing campaign.
