Deployment of anti-satellite laser systems: the United States, Tibet, Tianshan, China huge secret
Connection magazine Web site table article said that China has joined the battle for space potential control over the arms race, and has devoted themselves to developing a laser anti-satellite weapons. The article also photographed by the satellite picture that such weapons may be deployed in three locations in Hefei, Mianyang and Xinjiang. For this argument, some military experts in the United States is given a different judgment.
article said that, as early as the 1960s when the laser weapon initiation of interest. Laser weapons research is part of the works of early Chinese ABM 640. Laser sub-project 640-3 project “by the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics Institute is responsible for. 640-3 The project aims to develop high-power laser generator, to intercept ballistic missiles and high-altitude spacecraft. Before and after the 1980s, China has canceled 640 projects, 1979, again to restart the development of laser weapons projects, and included 863 high-tech development projects.
the 1980s, China began to study high-energy laser (HEL), and has made two significant developments: the free-electron laser (FEL) and chemical oxygen iodine laser ( of COIL), which is consistent with the specifications of the anti-satellite weapons system. Meanwhile, China is also developing a low power laser systems, but it is believed this laser system is able to intercept outside the atmosphere objects.
said, in 1985, launched free-electron laser generator project at the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics. China’s first free electron laser “Dawning” was developed in 1993 to undertake design work by the Southwest Institute of Fluid Physics of Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics. China University of Science and Technology, chaired the research linear accelerator in 2003, perhaps earlier, began the study of free-electron laser. In the 1980s, the CAS Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, first began the study of the chemical oxygen-iodine laser. In 1993, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, the chemical oxygen-iodine laser test results measured by the laser can kill the target 140 meters away.
article said, the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics Anhui Optics and Fine Mechanics Institute has conducted research of adaptive optics and deformable mirrors. In order to achieve satellite tracking targets, China has also launched a number of laser ranging project. The article says that, in fact, the laser weapons are conducive to the development of China’s ballistic missile program. At present, China has started to roll the concept of ballistic missile, ground-based laser in order to shorten the dwell time on the airframe, to avoid destruction.
Xinjiang Tianshan may deploy anti-satellite laser system
article said China’s Xinjiang Tianshan deployed along the anti-satellite laser systems, the analysis of the region investigated to determine the probable location of the device. In addition, the inspection of the site and other Chinese high-energy laser-related base relations, further confirmed this to the credibility of the high-energy laser systems.
article pointed out, in order to build a military ground-based laser anti-satellite weapons system, China needs to develop the laser and the deformation of optical target tracking system. Current indications that the close coordination of the free electron laser and Anhui Optics and Fine Mechanics Institute of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics (CAEP), optical equipment. It is worth noting that, the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics in Mianyang, Anhui Optics and Fine Mechanics in Hefei. These studies are outside the attack with the development of the atmosphere relevant to the objectives. Soon we will find that the Institute will be located in the Xinjiang Institute in Hefei and Mianyang.
article said, only a simple survey and insufficient to prove that China is working actively for the implementation of anti-satellite mission to promote the weaponization of its laser systems. In fact, some of the things that occurred in 2006 may be able to provide the necessary evidence, which depicts the entire event. August 2006 and on the 9th, the U.S. government has said that the laser system was aimed at the U.S. satellite passing of China’s territory. Some analysts said that these events proved to demonstrate its anti-satellite weapon system capabilities in low intensity, and other analysts believe that these may simply be used for laser range finder for accurate classification of the satellite orbit.
article said, usually imaging satellite view of China as the goal, so these two possibilities are worth noting. On the one hand, low-intensity display anti-satellite capability can make the outside world took note of China’s anti-satellite capability, rather than the public or destructive testing; the other hand, the precise determination of the imaging satellite orbits contribute to the implementation of the anti-intervention or fraud tactics. The precise location data can also provide targeting information for the anti-satellite weapons network. So, both answers would make people believe that China is developing anti-satellite weapons.
However, the article, the more likely that the above two statements. After all, China is indeed running a number of laser systems used to track satellites. Therefore, has been positioning satellite Xinjiang facilities to locate or track the laser targeting is possible.
, American military experts have mixed views
article said, it is noteworthy laser-based anti-satellite weapons does not necessarily have to meet the destructive power of military applications. Can be used to make one of the following three: interference, blinding, or destroy a satellite. Destroy satellites is the most complicated because it requires a huge amount of output power, high accuracy and precision optical film can be deformed in order to minimize the effects of the atmosphere – the same location to see a satellite time only about 100 seconds, so these three abilities are indispensable missing.
At present, the public images and information seem to have confirmed that China has deployed in Xinjiang, laser anti-satellite system. These anti-satellite weapons have the power to destroy a satellite is not yet known, but there are signs that such a system already in place, and this system is the research of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics and Anhui Institute of Optics Fine Mechanics, Institute of is quite similar to the free-electron laser equipment.
Moreover, the United States, “Global Security” site, John Pike, president of the view that the Tianshan Mountains may have a laser device for the more conventional anti-satellite weapons guidance. After all, “compared with the destruction device with infrared guidance capability for the device is equipped with laser-guided homing simple.”
However, Harvard – Smithsonian celestial physics (CfA) the scientists YousafButt but said there was no any evidence of evidence of the Tianshan Mountains there are any energy-destructive laser anti-satellite weapons facilities. Union of Concerned Scientists Laura Grenadines high that the current situation is not worth worrying about, after all, China wants to develop a laser anti-satellite weapons, you need to “First, the tracking system (with a minimum of a ready-made, now forming laser with small coupled with a mirror diameter), is basically a laser ranging system; second, high-energy laser; high-energy laser beam directed to the satellite controlled mirror. “
Liberation Army laser targeting cannons are loaded: it is incredibly powerful, spectacular scenes
the middle of winter, northwest of a shooting range. Equipped with a laser aiming device, a type of artillery fired 10 shells, hair hit. The data show that the artillery from targeting to launch with only one third of the original. This “quick and accurate” record creators, Wuhan Ordnance NCO School Professor Cheng Yong.
laser satellite laser aiming device is the “eyes” of artillery weapons. A long time, the use of laser sighting devices must be carefully debugging, artillery shells fired on the battlefield, therefore will always be “belated”. In order to overcome this problem, Cheng Yong concentrated on studying after five years of painstaking research, free debugging on the battlefield, the average firing preparation time reduced by two-thirds of the laser aiming device. This achievement was awarded the National Technology Invention, military science and technology progress award.
