"China and Russia, in particular, are developing a variety of tools to use the US-accepted space-based system and challenge the US's position in space," the Defense Intelligence Agency report
was published in Monday, entitled "Space Security Challenges," and looks at Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. on North Korea's nuclear weapons program and the monitoring of Russian and Chinese military activities.
They also have sensors involved in the detection of enemy missile shots. The US needs cosmic power.
The report describes both Russian and Chinese anti-gun weapons, including e-warfare, target-oriented weapons, and "kinetic" anti-aliens
destroy, destroy or damage satellites and their sensors. " "China is likely to launch a land-based laser weapon that can counteract low-orbital space sensors by 2020 and by mid-late 2020, it can put higher energy systems that widen the threat to structures of non-optical satellites, "says the report
," there is probably a limited possibility to use laser systems against satellite sensors. "
Reports say that Russia has already supplied a laser weapon to its aerospace forces before July 201
"Russia also develops an airborne (anti-satellite) laser weapon system to be used against space-based missile sensors," the report said. media__image-responsive "alt =" CLOSED: People do not like the cosmic powers] Darkened: People do not like cosmic powers [19659014AdministrativeTrafficExperienceExperiencedSensorsThisParticipateOutlookForwardRightResultsUpdatedMonthlySafetyTeles
Chinese military "have an operational ground-based (anti-satellite) missile intended for guidance (low Earth orbit satellites)," the report said, adding that "China has also formed military units that have begun training with (anti-satellite) missiles. "
The report says Russia is "likely" to develop a "terrestrial mobile rocket system capable of destroying space targets" in low earth orbit in addition to ballistic missiles
. "This weapon system is likely to begin operating within over the next few years, "the report added.
The report says that Russia and China are also developing "inspection and service" satellites, which can also be used to mount satellites in orbit.
