Pentagon: Russia and China are "developing tools" to fight with US satellites

24
In Russia and China, funds are being created to counter American satellites, reports TASS a statement by the head of the Pentagon Intelligence Agency, General Robert Ashley.




They (the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China) understand how much we are dependent on space, and they are developing means to counter this,
Ashley said at the Senate hearing.

He explained that this refers both to the “attack on satellites” and to “their jamming from the ground.” The general said that while these funds are under development.

US National Intelligence Director Daniel Coates, in turn, told the Senate Committee that "Russia and China are developing their intelligence, communications and navigation networks in space."

Both countries are striving to develop their own space weapons in order to reduce the effectiveness of the American and allied armed forces, as well as to make them doubt the US military advantage in space,
added Coates.

        if you disable all gps satellites with mattresses and so the khan will come - do you think they can navigate by compass?

          This compass was given to you. And the moss on the trees, and the anthills? There is also a magical "Aw!"
          Let them study, come in handy.

              A bear who has learned to shout: “Aw!” Will never remain hungry.

      Russian manufacturers hope that the United States will once again help the Russian economy and introduce some other sanctions

    "... The Pentagon: Russia and China are developing means to combat US satellites ...."

    Horrible. And in the states, they do not do similar work? Indeed, the Pentagon discovered America, as they say.

      Yeah ... with no tips. Here, recently, they proudly broadcast that they had disrupted Russian contracts for the supply of arms for $ 3 billion. Now, after the GDP message, it will be necessary to calculate how many countries will abandon them, now useless missile interceptors and missile defense with financial losses. Surely, the GDP did not reveal all the cards and saved a few trump cards, among which there may very well be systems already capable of resetting their space satellite constellation. No wonder the Pentagon is worried)))

    The Americans should understand not only the importance of satellite constellations and the means of dealing with them, but they will also be concerned first of all with the training of l / s in a war without them ... Although it’s better if they don’t worry ... They will be more accessible "on the spot" ... smile

    It seems to me personally that we have the means to make cast iron useless from enemy satellites, because We have been working on this for a very long time. Putin in his speech left a hint of the presence of other "pleasant" surprises for the restless democratizers.

      And they have. Same HAARP. Allows you to concentrate megawatt power in volumes of several cubic meters. Which satellite can stand it? It is believed that several of our spacecraft fell victim to such systems. It is impossible to prove only this. Well, the communication channel with the Earth failed, the connection is lost, so what? https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAARP

    Well, few people know about the real situation in this area, but I think that reality would greatly upset the mattresses.

    These strange Americans, we so do not immediately understand. They are deeply concerned about Russia's actions to create new weapons systems. And when the GDP tells them that we have something interesting and shows a cartoon, they crucify the whole world that these are fairy tales from Vova.
