US intelligence agencies claim Russia & China are developing anti-satellite weapons

By in

The US National Intelligence report states that Russia and China are developing weapons that can disable American commercial, civilian and military satellites. According to US intelligence, in the event of a conflict, Moscow and Beijing will justify attacks on the satellites of the United States in order to anti-force Washington’s military superiority.

As noted in the document, of particular concern is that Moscow and Beijing ‘continue to launch’ experimental satellites and at least some of the aspects of their activities are consequently aimed at developing counterspace technology.

Therefore, the US government intends to increase the level of its satellite security accordingly.
