“The United States is seeking to establish a defense system similar to the European missile defense system through collaboration with Japan, Korea, Australia and other countries in Asia. U.S. Department of Defense remark immediately drew the attention of the world’s media.
Iran and North Korea did not currently possess long-range ballistic missile, in the face of the Asian missile defense system in the United States, China is clearly the largest preventive object. Reuters, UK and the U.S. global strategic network analysis article that the United States in Asia, the movements of the missile defense system will be subjected to a fierce comeback in China. China than in Russia on a missile capability is not much difference, but the performance of some high-tech weapons and even reached the same level with the United States. Therefore, once the United States in Asia and missile defense, is bound to anger China. China have ASAT capability will be the nightmare of American foreign media warned that once the impasse, the PLA will use nuclear bombs to destroy U.S. military satellites.
Asian anti-missile “shield” approximation
March 27, the British Reuters news agency published reports that the U.S. Department of Defense, a senior official recently told the media that the United States is seeking to build in Asia and the Middle East regional ballistic missile defense barrier on the composition and performance, will be similar to the NATO ballistic missile defense system in Europe.
“World Journal” special military commentator Guo declared that, for China, the United States to establish anti-missile system in Asia, is tantamount to a missile defense network to advance to the door of her house. This makes a rising China is very uncomfortable, can not be accepted. , The Second Artillery conventional missile and strategic missile forces are the most dependent deterrent, which is directly related to China’s national security.
responsible for global strategic affairs, said U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense Madeline Keli Deng, Asia, the United States is by two triangular dialogue to promote a new anti-missile shield – a US-Japan-Australia triangle, a triangle of the United States, Japan. Analysts believe that through the years of the construction of the missile defense base, Japan, Korea and Australia three countries already have the condition and strength involved in the anti-missile network, but for the domestic public and political considerations, the United States must also further strengthen the communication with the three countries , especially in South Korea or Australia into the Asian anti-missile system in the United States.People’s Liberation Army
the formation of a space nuclear forces
foreign media jump guess:
U.S. GEO -1 anti-missile early-warning satellites
According to the U.S. think tank Lexington Institute report shows that the ballistic missile from launch to hit the target, the flight is divided into five phases: boost phase, the rising phase of flight the middle, down the stage and the last paragraph. In five stages, boost and rising stage, the missile run slower, easy to detect and intercept. However, these two phases are generally in the airspace within the scope of the launching State, not be able to predict the direction of the missile flight, so the intercept there is a huge political risk.
the middle of the height of the highest of ballistic missiles, fast stage segment, the long-range ballistic missiles in the middle of the flight in the atmosphere outside. According to the current level of missile technology, only the thrust land-based missiles have the ability to intercept ballistic missiles of the middle of the flight.
decline stage and the last paragraph, and warheads flight speed is very fast, thereby increasing the difficulty of interception. The U.S. “Patriot” missile system belongs to this last paragraph of interceptor weapons.
the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) is significantly different than the Clinton administration’s NMD plan. BMD plan broader, more ambitious. The goal: the eventual deployment of a multi-layered defense system, which includes the boost phase defense system, Midcourse Defense system and the last paragraph of the defense system can be deployed in the foundation, sea-, air-based or even space-based platform, can be hit to kill and directed energy destruction mechanism to deal with the short, medium and long-range ballistic missiles.Rick Elson,
U.S. missile weapons expert, said that in the process of construction of the missile defense network in Asia need three component of: ground-based interceptor missiles, ABM radar and mobile deployment of high-power carrying the “standard” series missile Aegis destroyers. Then there is no ground-based interceptor missiles, the Aegis destroyer, according to Lai Haiji the United States and its Asian allies have to go through to build anti-missile network in Asia, strengthening surveillance and early warning of enemy missile boost phase, thus for the subsequent intercept successful foundation.
to improve the ability of the surrounding Japan missile defense in Japan by the United States to deploy a mobile early warning radar – the X-band radar. Such a cost of $ 900,000,000 power X-band radar can be found in the baseball-size objects thousands of miles away. Can identify a decoy missile warhead and real missile warheads after deployment. This is equivalent to what people call the “telescope”, is an important capability of the missile defense system.
then, Australia Why become an integral part of the U.S. anti-missile system in Asia? Special military commentator of the “Le Monde”, which is obviously in order to deal with China Guang-Wen Chen. Chinese range of deterrence, intercontinental ballistic missile in Hawaii and the southern United States, the trajectory of the missile in combat over the Pacific Ocean, the United States has the latest generation of space-based infrared surveillance satellite data transmission center in Australia. As a result, Japan and Australia has become an important pawn in the United States to establish anti-missile defense system in Asia.
destroyed the anti-missile early-warning satellites is essential
the United States was chosen to launch anti-missile system in Asia at this time, behind the underlying causes of . February 13 this year, the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) general contractor Lockheed Martin Company, the SBIRS system’s first geostationary satellite GEO-1 has been transferred to the final target orbit and begin delivering the user.
It is worth noting that this satellite is called the anti-missile early-warning satellites for seamless monitoring of the global ballistic missile. The system features through the clouds, and 10-20 seconds to find and locate each other’s ability to launch ballistic missiles. Can detect and track ballistic missile activities worldwide. China and Russia and other countries with ballistic missiles as a trump card is a real threat. SBIRS system plan with a total of 24 satellites, in order to build a comprehensive, integrated surveillance networks, which will greatly expand intelligence-gathering capability of the U.S. ballistic missile defense system.
It was with the trump card, the United States have comprehensive anti-missile system in Asia emboldened. But at the same time as trying to break through the U.S. anti-missile system, its future development goals very clear, that is to knock down the U.S. anti-missile “Space Eye”, so that the U.S. anti-missile system can not be the first time obtain accurate information and data, this is in fact the anti-missile system to its knees.In order to achieve the operational targets, the magazine of the “space” and global strategic networks and many other media reported that China has already begun to set up a “satellite killer” forces, paralyze the majority of U.S. military satellites.
“space” magazine article said that the USA’s first GEO-1 new infrared missile warning satellite claims to be able to intercept the “Chinese Second Artillery Corps, the sub-guide multi-warhead missiles, the U.S. military speculation People’s Liberation Army may The U.S. space satellite network to form an anti-satellite forces, responsible for the damage and paralysis of the U.S. military satellites.
U.S. Global Strategy Network reports speculate rocket anti-satellite weapons into space to deploy, but need to spend huge sums of money. Thus, the PLA tend to build anti-missile satellite system on the ground, and may have to begin to build dozens of missiles in the “satellite killer” force.
the United States has been the space metaphor has absolute control over the final Heights “for themselves, because only occupy the high ground in the war, to get battlefield information superiority, which promptly summoned, strategizing, and ultimately achieved the victory of the war. From the 1991 Gulf War, Kosovo War, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq and last year’s Libyan war, all these point performance of the head. However, the United States, “Washington Times” that China is to control the United States last Heights “launched a ferocious offensive. Once the Chinese occupation of the U.S. withdrawal from the last high ground “, and decided to equipment on the U.S. space strategy to combat, the United States could quickly lose most or all of the communication. At the same time, the military command to pass the enemy observation or financial transactions and other activities may also be paralyzed.
United States, “Washington Times” defense insider “column Chinese military expert Bill Gertz, China has successfully tested a direct ascent anti-satellite missiles, electronic jamming weapons and is still developing and directed energy weapons, these R & D was carried out for the space equipment. In addition, China’s manned space program and lunar exploration project has greatly enhanced the ability to track and identify satellites, and China’s development of space debris detection and tracking technology can also contribute to the development of satellite tracking and the ability to identify.
In addition, the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency also believes that China is working to develop interfere with the satellite signal, the use of the laser ability to destroy satellites. China is busy tracking satellite – this is a prerequisite to damage or destroy satellites. All of this is since China’s successful anti-satellite test in January 2007, the United States more closely monitor the results of the Chinese space program. Moreover, compared with five years ago, the Chinese anti-satellite capabilities, there has been increased dramatically. Geoffrey Forden, strategic weapons of the former U.S. Congressional Budget Office analysis experts believe that the Chinese anti-satellite weapon is a high degree of maneuverability performance. The target satellite orbit is known prior to the interception, but this does not mean that the satellite position is accurate to the degree of anti-satellite interceptor no orbit maneuver can directly hit. In fact, the anti-satellite interceptor in order to hit the target much more likely to need in the last paragraph to six times the acceleration due to gravity in the high-speed motor, this ability has far exceeded the former Soviet Union’s anti-satellite capability.
space nuclear bomb is the last “trump card”
According to the anonymity of the military experts said “Le Monde”, 2007 January 11, FY-1C weather satellite China destroyed in one fell swoop scrapped, thus becoming known so far proven ASAT capability of the country. In this test, kinetic-kill vehicle destroyed the FY-1C satellite is launched with a KT-1 space launch vehicle, the launch vehicle is essentially a modified DF-21 medium-range ballistic missiles. From the type of technology, which is a kinetic energy anti-satellite weapons.
kinetic energy anti-satellite weapons rely on the momentum of high-speed moving objects destroy the target, usually with a rocket-propelled warhead at a very high speed, and make it a direct collision with the target satellite and destroyed it. Also carrying high explosive warhead explosive device explosion in the vicinity of the target, resulting in a dense metal fragments or shrapnel destroyed the target. This destruction means anti-satellite weapons require highly sophisticated guidance technology.
compared with the Chinese there is a pressure box bottom “anti-satellite weapons. That is to use the projection tool, will launch a nuclear bomb into space, and then destroy the target satellite.
U.S. Department of Defense issued the “China Military Power Report,” In recent years, specifically the addition of a “space war”, China’s military space capability for tracking analysis. Phoenix, “the military observation room quoted the report, the People’s Liberation Army writings stressed the need to” destroy, damage and interfere with enemy reconnaissance … and communications satellites, which show these systems as well as navigation and early warning satellites will probably be the “blinding or by dumb enemy of the first round of the target of attacks. Moreover, in the worst-case scenario, the PLA completely have the ability to bomb projected into space, then a large area to destroy the opponent’s satellite system.
Moreover, the U.S. Union of Concerned Scientists, wrote some of China’s military-technical books and journals also published the article discusses the technical problems of this area.
In fact, the earliest development of anti-satellite weapons in the United States and the Soviet Union is an anti-satellite nuclear missiles. This weapon is a nuclear warhead near the target satellite, the explosion produced a strong thermal radiation, nuclear radiation and electromagnetic pulse effects, the structural components of the target satellite and electronic equipment damage, interfere with the RF transmission, or it lost the ability to work.According to the weapons knowledge, “the magazine article, the following main features of anti-satellite nuclear missiles. First, the working distance, killing radius, the electromagnetic pulse of up to more than 1,000 km, diffusion along the magnetic field lines from the point of explosion, quickly reach the magnetic conjugate point, then continue to spread along the longitude. Poor guidance precision of the weapon itself, able to destroy the target. Second, we can form a variety of threats, prompt nuclear radiation, including neutrons, X-ray, nuclear debris, a very wide spectrum of strong electromagnetic pulse, high-energy electron radiation, ionospheric anomalies ionization. Also ionizing the upper atmosphere, ionosphere electron density of a sharp increase, causing radio waves through the ionosphere refraction, reflection, scattering, flashing, delay absorption, communications, navigation, radar and other radio signals will be impact. Third, the shadow seems that the duration of up to several years.
However, the use of nuclear weapons to anti-satellite additional destructive effect, electromagnetic pulse radiation from nuclear explosions in the atmosphere outside the direct threat to a nearby track of one’s own satellite and radar intercept the nearby area, loss of communication capabilities in the region around the point of 1,000 km away from the explosion caused by frequent blackouts and electronic equipment interference. And once used, the risk of triggering a nuclear war. So as a last resort situation, the two warring sides also less likely to use unconventional destruction means. However, once the People’s Liberation Army really have the technical capacity, then the United States and its large space facilities will be a huge deterrent.share:
