U.S. media: the formation of troops with dozens of pieces of anti-satellite missile
United States global strategic networks reported on March 5, the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) believe that the Chinese space program, which involves not only the peaceful use of space. The Intelligence Bureau is working to develop interfere with the satellite signal, the use of laser ability to destroy satellites. In addition, China is busy tracking satellite – which is a prerequisite to damage or destroy satellites. All of this is since 2007, the United States more closely monitor the results of the Chinese space program.
reported that in January 2007, China launched a missile successfully destroyed an obsolete weather satellite in the country. Destroy satellites to China this test, the United States was shocked, they decided to let the Chinese people to understand that Americans have the appropriate weapons, faster and cheaper to do this. So, a year later, in February 2008, the Americans fired missiles shot down an out of control of the country’s photographic satellite. The United States does not say or do not need to state that the United States are closely watching China’s space warfare capability.
reported that, when the U.S. Navy’s Aegis-class Lake Erie cruiser ship equipped with Aegis radar, positioned about 220 kilometers above the target satellite, the first will launch one The SM-3 missile to destroy this truck the size of the failed satellite. At that time, in order to help the goal of precise positioning, the U.S. military also uses radar telescope. However, this attack is not easy, because you want to attack the target satellite is out of control and still do not regularly move. In this case, the U.S. military must predict the satellite orbit, so that aboard the Aegis-class warships to target. It is worth noting that the ability to overcome these difficulties is very important. If the Aegis anti-satellite weapons are used again, as in wartime, as the enemy satellite might try to maneuver to escape the attack from the warships equipped with the Aegis system.
reported that this destroy the operations of the failed satellite in 2008, the United States had spent six weeks of planning, this is mainly because there are many unknown issues. But now, many of which are unknown have become known, and Washington may soon carry out another shot down operations. However, the specific timing of the remains unknown. Surprisingly, more than that. 9 kg warhead hit the target satellite, led to very unexpected explosion, which is caused by the satellite’s hydrazine fuel is ignited. The explosion of flame more than 20 seconds. Moreover, the warhead (just one chunk of inert metal) the impact of the more destructive than expected, it will be satellite powder pure into multiple small fragments. But this is also good, because these small fragments of injuries to the collision of objects is unlikely.
reported that it all started in January 11, 2007, when China launched an anti-satellite missile destroyed an obsolete weather satellite in the country at an altitude of 850 km. The attacks generated millions of fragments. Although most of the debris is very small, but at least 817 (diameter of at least 10 cm) is really very dangerous. However, from a technical aspect, China’s move as early as 30 years ago will be conducted by the United States and Russia demonstration. Unless people actually use it, otherwise it does not fuss about the place. Now China has already demonstrated its ability to destroy satellites, but it also dozens of possession or use of a few hundred in-orbit satellite countries has caused an uproar. This is because that test led to the increase in the number of dangerous space debris about 8%.
reported that 25 years ago, in order to reduce the amount of “space pollution” pose a threat to all existing and future space satellite, Russia and the United States agreed to stop the attack satellite test. In addition, it also relates to the actual cost of the problem. Ready to launch a sufficient number of anti-satellite weapons launched, so do the cost is extremely high. Moreover, this behavior will only stimulate others to do the same thing, resulting in the previous anti-satellite efforts fall short. It is believed that the Chinese are ready to set up a 20-30 pieces of anti-satellite missile forces, the force is sufficient to paralyze the U.S. military satellite network. However, China denied the allegation. For more articles:
