Russian and Chinese lasers threaten U.S. satellites

Разведка США выяснила какое космическое оружие создает Россия

Efforts by Russian Federation and China to develop space technologies are challenging United States dominance in the space race and threaten to cripple its galactic security supremacy, a new report by the Pentagon has warned.

"China likely will field a ground-based laser weapon that can counter low-orbit space-based sensors by 2020, and by the mid-to-late 2020s, it may field higher-power systems that extend the threat to the structures of non-optical satellites", the report claims.

The report warns that China has an operational missile, . capable of destroying satellites in low-Earth orbit.

"Russia continues to research and develop sophisticated on-orbit capabilities that could serve dual-use purposes", the report said Monday.

"China and Russian Federation, in particular, are developing a variety of means to exploit perceived United States reliance on space-based systems and challenge the U.S. position in space, ' the Defence Intelligence Agency report said".

"The People's Liberation Army also sees counterspace operations as a means to deter and counter a possible U.S. intervention during a regional military conflict", the report said, adding that destroying satellites would make it hard for the United States to target precision guided weapons.

China's foreign ministry condemned Tuesday the new Pentagon report unfounded which warns of Chinese and Russian space threats to the USA national security. It has communications satellites that provide internet and mobile services, reconnaissance satellites that enable signals intelligence and provide information on enemy force positions, as well as space-based sensors that alert the United States to missile launches, and position, navigation, and timing satellites that provide Global Positioning System to the military and to most Americans.

Cardi B Gets Glowing Endorsement From Lady Gaga: "She Is Brave"
After being named the Grammy victor at the 61st annual ceremony, Cardi accepted the trophy alongside her Migos rapper husband, 27. Cardi B unleashed with an expletive-filled rant on her Instagram account, then deactivated her account entirely.

Russian Federation and China introduced a proposal to ban the placement of weapons to the United Nations Conference on Disarmament over a decade ago in 2008. Other weapons are not banned, as noted in the treaty and the later 1979 SALT II Treaty. These agreements prohibit the placement of weapons of mass destruction (but not other weapons) in space.

China is building technologies that will soon threaten USA dominance in space, warned the Pentagon's lead intelligence agency. The document sought to maintain outer space free of weapons and open for peaceful research by all states without exception.

President Trump past year announced plans for a Space Force, a new branch of the USA armed forces charged with developing next-generation aerospace military technology and "space warfighting" tactics.

"What concerns me the most is them having a holistic force", a US defense intelligence official told NBC News.

However, US Vice President Mike Pence said later in October that the United States fully supports the 1967 Treaty and has no intention to alter the document.

In 2003, China became the third country to achieve independent human space flight with the Shenzhou 5 spacecraft, commanded by astronaut Yang Liwei.
