American expert suspected the Chinese in the creation of anti-satellite weapons

The launch of the rocket in May 2013 of the year, announced by the Chinese authorities as a scientific experiment, could be a test of the latest weapons for the destruction of spacecraft. Such a statement is contained in a 47-page study by former US Air Force analyst Brian Wyden, published on Monday.


We can talk about the combat device based on a mobile ballistic missile, suitable for churning satellites, writes in his study, Weeden. He is currently working as a technical consultant at the Secure World Foundation, an organization looking for ways to use space in a peaceful and safe manner.

The analyst traced the course of the Chinese experiment based on a multitude of satellite images and came to the conclusion that a kinetic interceptor was put into orbit. This mechanism is designed to hit the target at high speed and destroy it at the expense of the force of a blow without undermining the warhead.

“If this is true, then China has achieved a serious breakthrough in the development of anti-satellite weapons. No other country has tested combat launch systems capable of hitting space satellites in medium-altitude near-earth orbit, high elliptical or geostationary orbit, ”Widen is struck.

The study included a photograph of a mobile launcher in the area of ​​the Xichang Chinese cosmodrome - such platforms are commonly used for ballistic missiles. According to Weiden, this is yet another proof of the design of the PRC of a new anti-satellite weapon. He believes that the combat device was put into orbit with the help of the Quayzhou light launch vehicle.

In 2007, China has already tested the anti-satellite defeat system - using a kinetic interceptor SC-19 at an altitude of about 865 km, the weather satellite that failed was destroyed. The satellite weighing more than a ton was split by a powerful blow into more than three thousand pieces. The demonstrative shooting of the spacecraft caused sharp criticism of the White House. The device, which, according to Widen’s suggestion, the Chinese tested in May 2013, should work at an altitude greater than 2 thousands of kilometers.

China really possesses impact systems for the destruction of objects in space, says director of the Center for Socio-Political Studies Vladimir Evseev.

“It is documented that the Chinese can hit targets at altitudes up to 10 — 20 thousands of km. We are talking about shock-kinetic systems, but one cannot rule out the future appearance of systems knocking satellites with lasers or microdevices that will blind the satellite. Laser systems were developed in the USSR, but after perestroika, the topic was closed so as not to annoy the Americans, ”said the expert.

According to Yevseyev, the importance of anti-satellite weapons in future conflicts will only grow.

“The space train is an important component of the US military. If you blind him, it will be a serious blow to their combat effectiveness, because many modern combat systems are based on satellite information. Anti-satellite weapons can give China a significant advantage over the Americans, ”he sums up.

Abolish the Bretton Woods system, change the alignments in the IMF, IDB, WTO and other international organizations, where mattress makers feel like "chief executives" and who were created by them to impose their will on other countries.

    Russia needs to develop military equipment independent of satellites and not related to it, i.e. what if the satellite were destroyed so that military equipment worked on a different information technology, i.e. guidance system, surveillance and the operation of weapons independent of satellites. As well as a system for protecting electronics from electromagnetic bombs and microwave irradiation. Anyone who invents such a weapon independent of satellites will be the sovereign of the Earth.

      In my opinion, without space technology, weapons will develop poorly. But I think it’s more realistic to create miniature satellites that are protected from all kinds of radiation. It will be very difficult to track and even more so to get into a small target among various space debris at such a large distance.

      Loudly said. We were the first on an ICBM to have an astro correction system independent of satellites. Accuracy was within 100-500m. And then came the satellite correction system. Accuracy has become 20-50m. Question? It can protect satellites, for example, by moving to a higher orbit or by kinetic interceptors, laser guns, etc.

      The attack is being conducted in the Western Hemisphere, where we do not have spacecraft tracking ships. Before - there was a whole flotilla. Now we carry out correction, assignment and control of the satellite only at the moment the satellite appears above the horizon. So after an attack in the Western Hemisphere, our satellites may become silent and not respond to control signals. It is sad. And the satellites are "dodged" by the method of changing the orbit height. Less commonly, by directional maneuver. This requires jet fuel. Previous products had only 3 pulses. Well, something like this.

China experienced anti-satellite weapons back in 2007 or 2008 when it shot down in orbit your old satellite ... by the way, then the phrase flashed through that this weapon was a joint Russian-Chinese development, but then they hushed up this information, then the conflict with Georgia was brewing and the relations between the Russian Federation and the USA were already strained .. so what drug are they on American experts? or is it really so bad with the media and other communications? Is there really such a low-speed Internet in the USA that the news from 2008 reached the USA only in 2014 ??? :))))))))

      Amers are doing fine with the Internet. It's just that in 2008 the tangerines flooded a low-orbit satellite, and now they can crumble geostationary platforms. Can you catch the difference? But it is geostationary devices that are the basis of the positioning system. Without them, only "Terkom" + R / L GOS will remain on Axes. And this is a completely different story. Aviation navigation will also be covered with a copper basin. Well, and so on according to the list.
