US intelligence announced the development of "killer satellites" in Russia and China

24
Russia and China are developing weapons, capable of incapacitating the US military and commercial satellites, according to the next report of the US National Intelligence.




The document notes that weapons with similar potential may appear in the arsenal of the leading countries of the world "in the coming years."

In addition, according to the authors of the report, “special anti-satellite units” have already been created in Russia and China. This will lead to the fact that "the situation in outer space will become more tense," fear American analysts.

Russia and China are working to develop anti-satellite weapons to reduce the military potential of the United States and its allies,
gives an excerpt from the report RIA News.

It is noted that Russia and China may use such weapons against the United States in future conflicts. In this regard, Washington needs to "increase the level of security of commercial, civilian and military satellites," experts of the American intelligence community believe.

    A similar weapon was already in the USSR ... I think so and is in Russia.

        Pasha, hi!
        Why develop something when you can let an old, exhausted satellite launch along the desired trajectory?
        A precedent has already been! They say that by chance ...

                A wonderful idea, it will immediately increase the cost of commercial satellites, but it will not save them. Because it’s enough just to stick the lenses of star and solar sensors with any Velcro and give the solar batteries a slight jolt. And a “perfectly operational” satellite with a resource of 15 years will run out of batteries in a couple of hours.

              Even Wikipedia indicates that in the United States these developments have been going on since the 50s of the 20th century.
              In Russia and China, they are also probably working on this and will work

        Pash hi Then there were a lot of “interesting” things developed. I don’t think that everyone was banned forever.

          I don’t think that everyone has cheated irrevocably.

          My friend, I’m paraphrasing your words a little: “I don’t think that they sold everything to mattresses or poher.”

      220 Russian satellites out of 600 used by intelligence and the Pentagon hang over the territory of Russia.

      US intelligence apparently got infected by the Balts ... 30 years later, when there was already an IP program, and I suspect that over the past 10 years something similar has been deployed in orbit.

    What do you want? With your aggressiveness and constant threats, should Russia and China unconditionally surrender to the self-appointed "hegemon"?

    It is noted that Russia and China can use similar weapons against the United States. in future conflicts.

    In other words, the issue has already been resolved, there should be conflicts. The point is small, increase protection, for orbital speeds a children's puzzle)) Forward.

    The fewer mattress satellites in our earth’s orbit, the better and calmer the world will be. And if everything is destroyed, then this is generally a blessing. am

    Our satellites are “repairmen” in orbit for a long time and I think not only ours ... Unwinding another hysteria, and so on about budgets ....

    Satellites capable of destroying American in 10 minutes. after giving a signal, they function safely. Moreover, all those capable of being used in the interests of NATO, national forces, and government will be destroyed. I hope that satellites of the Air Force, CNN, and similar fake news channels will remain. They lie their confusion even more

    Not always. If old, then most often already with a minimum of fuel for correction.

    Suspect, Andrew. But it’s better to study the materiel, how many and which satellites we launched over the past 10 years. Damn, our space segment of SPRN is not fully formed, and killer satellites have been unfolding for 10 years? Maybe you shouldn’t wishful thinking?

    Business is business. But at least in corporations, they are at least beneficial, as consultants or advisers, but in our country they strive for deputies ...

    What really is? And, probably, they can destroy satellites immediately with the Earth ...

    Hardly. The satellites are so top-secret that no one knows about them. Even the creators of the satellites. And how could the generals learn about them when they were used to clearly executing the command, and on the packets with the characteristics and orbits of these satellites the inscription “burn before reading”

      1. For parliamentary, judicial, bureaucratic immunity, the soul and mother will be sold. I don’t presume to guess everything, but in fact it is and it’s hardly a big secret for anyone.
      2. The value of the military with big stars in corporations, we can only in rare cases, I can not definitely say, not my topic. One thing is clear, they were valuable before, no doubt.
      3. The value of corporations, large enterprises for the state is understandable, only here we have a very big bias and not in our direction.
      4. The killer’s satellites ... there were plans, sales were boasted by colleagues, but they definitely don’t live in orbit so much (they remain operational), for so long ago there was no sense in talking about this. We could have deduced in previous years that there simply cannot be an experimental, unit-wise, real combat group there.
      5. By the way, on the envelopes I would write before eating read! Our science, our enterprises, our military have been kept on a starvation diet for so long that most of them are no longer subject to resuscitation, and all that remains is that it just began to restore meat to the bones to fat with such soldering and does not shine!
      6. The question is, does our power elite intend to restore the country, or just, just surfaced, keep afloat and truncated? soldier
