foreign military anti-satellite warfare system of remote joint precision strike
According to foreign news agencies recently reviewed, U.S. military in its “four-year Defense Review Report,” has stressed the need to give up winning the next two large-scale theater war concept, instead should be based on both the ability to quickly defeat the invaders to support two of the four important threats of theater, while retaining to a large-scale counter-attack to occupy an aggressor’s capital and change its regime’s strategic thinking. To this end, the U.S. military has begun research and development, including land-based combat, air-based combat, sea combat and strategic strike forces, including the most expensive combat system – future joint combat systems. However, the U.S. military acknowledged that want to complete the construction of the future combat system just as much difficulty re-landing on the moon, “global blitz” to talk about what is easy. So, the U.S. military’s ambitious new development plan really want to build the kind of combat system?
land-based operations: command and control real-time
The U.S. land-based operations the main objective of the new development plan is the desire to build a motorized, complete network, the future of the Army with a new fighting. The new system consists of 18 separate subsystems with network and soldiers, all systems are powerful networks link. The new system is running, information will enable the U.S. military force, firepower, mobility and viability of such an unprecedented increase, through the implementation of the full spectrum of sensors and network operations.
However, foreign military experts comment that the U.S. concept of the “future combat system” still faces many formidable obstacles. Because the future combat system involves 53 core technologies, there are still 52 U.S. military technology is not fully grasp. In particular, the network wishing to link together a number of subsystems, will be the future combat systems project, one of the most difficult to overcome the technical difficulties. In addition, the spectrum required for future combat systems, the bandwidth will be 10 times the actual available bandwidth, so the lack of network bandwidth will severely affect the ability of future combat systems, information technology implementation.
space-based warfare: a global warning global blitz
Recently, the U.S. Air Force has invested heavily to promote that want to implement a very valuable development program to carry out together to start to build the U.S. Air Force Future Combat System as an important part of the whole new generation of aerial refueling research project.
It is reported that the U.S. Air Force recently launched Future Combat Systems can mainly be summarized as “global alert”, “global reach” and “global blitz” a few parts. Through the development of future combat systems, focusing on the development of stealth technology, long-range precision strike and information technology as the core of Air Force weaponry. Global warning: refers to the use of air, space and cyberspace, and other operational systems to enhance surveillance, monitoring and early warning capabilities; global reach: is dependent on the Air Force transport aircraft range, payload and motor speed supplies, fuel and transport to the enemy combat forces region’s capacity; global blitz: the moment is the joint implementation of combat, long-range combat, covert penetration and precision attack, comprehensive capabilities.
Currently, the U.S. Air Force is on conventional weapons systems have been deployed to conduct a comprehensive assessment base to determine the system requirements to meet the operational base for the future, and present the results of the study and analysis, and ultimately determine the future joint air operations system deployment and R & D schedule.
sea-based operations: build a “new offshore fleet”
According to foreign disclosure, according to the U.S. Navy has submitted the Navy, “the next 30-year development plan” report , 2035, the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier fleet and the number of attack submarines will be reduced to the minimum size of nearly half a century, and will focus on accelerating the Navy’s next-generation equipment, weapons platforms and combat weapons and weapons research and development on new concepts, which sounded the U.S. Navy to build “21st century new fleet at sea,” the “Prelude.”
reported, taking into account the development of new technologies and concepts for future development and other uncertainties, the U.S. Navy’s future combat system is mainly set up the “big fleet plan,” and “small fleet plan” two options. Difference between the two is that the “big fleet plan” will greatly increase the Littoral Combat Ship and the number of other ships.
but foreign commentators believe that the sea want to build this new fleet, the cost is appalling. Only a new generation of nuclear-powered aircraft carrier CVN-21 cost of each vessel is expected to 13.7 billion dollars, about $ 2 billion over budget. Thus, even the U.S. Navy and he is considered a high cost will make the formation of a new fleet of the 21st century has become extremely difficult.
space-based operations: casting space force, “spear” and “Shield”
was recently noted that the U.S. Navy has successfully launched sea-based interceptor missiles, tactical , hit a more than 200 kilometers from the Earth’s surface high spy satellites, thus opening the U.S. military to create the space of days, “spear” the prelude.
It is reported that in the development of anti-satellite technology, may be incurred in order to avoid legal, diplomatic and other risks, the U.S. has adopted a “blending anti-health in the anti-missile” strategy. The days of Army’s Future Combat Systems will continue to follow this strategy, not only for anti-satellite warfare reserves of key technologies, but also create the conditions for its deployment. Therefore, the U.S. missile defense system continues to develop and use its new space to create the “spear” laid a solid foundation.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Army’s Future Combat Systems-day also based on the principle of limited defense to protect its space systems, to protect its satellites to build a “shield.” U.S. space force development of new satellite protection technologies include: the use of “plug and play” small satellites, can be within a few days or even hours to complete into orbit at low cost, fast and effective to improve the future of war and restoration, reconstruction of key space systems; application of “virtual satellite” or “star cluster” structure, technology, and increase the technical difficulty of the satellite hard kill and cost; application of unmanned technology in-orbit satellite service, satellite or replacement of damaged fuel added to the satellite Note and upgrades to improve the viability of the satellite. Can be seen, the day the military focus of the development of future combat systems, will be placed to further strengthen and ensure space superiority, based on the same time can be implemented to create a “counter-space” strategy of the new “spear” and “shield.”
