NATO announced plans to create a space center at the Ramstein base in Germany

18

The North Atlantic Alliance intends to announce the creation of a space center based on the Air Force High Command at the Ramstein military base. He will keep an eye on "friendly" satellites, and over time, probably, protect them.


This was reported by the German news agency DPA and the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.

Defense ministers of 30 NATO member countries are planning to officially announce the construction of a new space center on October 22. The object will serve primarily as a coordination center for space observations.

Speaking to Deutsche Welle reporters, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg will emphasize the importance of space programs and, in particular, the use of satellites:

Satellite systems keep our world in a state that many people are not even aware of. Trading, weather forecasts, mobile phones and banking all depend on satellites. Space is also essential to NATO, including our ability to navigate, collect intelligence, communicate and detect missile launches. Therefore, it is important that the alliance understands well what is happening in space, that we continue to have reliable access to space services and that the alliance maintains its technological superiority.

The center will collect information on probable threats to satellites. It is likely that in the future it will turn into a command center for defensive measures.

Stoltenberg also expressed concern about the development of anti-satellite systems by Russia and China.

      And at the same time, there is another way of "capitalist, capitalist wolf, comrade and brother."

      These are items from the World Trade Center of New York. As a memory of the fact that NATO used Article 5 for the only time. hi

        Such monuments should be installed in every city in the states and in Europe.

        There it is, i.e. the victims of the air show, the inhabitants of Germany, that happened at this very airbase, there is a modest pebble in the backyard, and the victims of a terrorist attack that did not take place in this country at all - at the central entrance. These are the double standards.

    To attach Russia and China to any speeches in NATO, this is usually a protocol event.
    We will build a satellite protection center for you, and you will reject SP-2 as the main threat to these satellites. Yes, I completely forgot to say, you will pay for mega-modern protection - a lot!

    How did ours manage to create VKS ahead of NATO countries is not clear? Now NATO realizes that this is a winning move and begins to invent an accompanying structure for itself and play up this invention of the Russians .............. laughing

      No, another over-the-horizon radar and a communication point with the APLSN (Sevmorput), as I see it, plus later elements of missile defense, or immediately

    Just call it "espionage" for everything and everyone, including primarily the residents of these 20 NATO countries. And how does this differ from the well-known interpretation of the word "Totalitarianism" - where is the political regime, which implies the absolute (total) control of a state over all aspects public and private life other states.

    The talkative bird croaked something. Now they have no more problems now! NATO is now concerned with the sublime.
