The nature of dark matter (DM) in the Universe remains one of the greatest mysteries of our time, and its quest is of utmost relevance for the entire scientific community. Among the ongoing efforts, the search for annihilation or decay products of DM particle candidates has yielded substantial information and allowed to set constraints on DM particle properties. In this talk, I will summarize the current status of this ‘indirect’ search of DM with the Large Area Telescope aboard the NASA Fermi gamma-ray space telescope from the direction of the most promising astrophysical targets. Among these, I will pay particular attention to the search of the so-called ‘dark satellites’ of the Milky Way and how we have recently used them to impose competitive constraints on the nature of the DM particle.
