For decades, the US military and government denied that near space orbit was, or ever would be, a potential military battleground. The militarization of outerspace was expressly forbidden by international law and treaty. However, it was at this time that America was busy reverse engineering Nazi technology from captured German scientists. The advancements in technology were amazing (eg vertical liftoff craft that could seemingly defy gravity). Meanwhile, the conventional military hailed the arrival of the Harrier het and its hovering ability. NASA was a front to deceive our enemies as well as the American public.
Today, the militarization of space, although not described in detail, is no longer the absolute secret that it once was. China, Russia, India and the United States are all partaking in establishing the same level of aggression above, that is catching up to the violence levels below.
Consequences of Miliatarizing Space
Consider the following quote regarding America’s enemies militarzing space:
“Adversaries and potential adversaries are developing, and in some cases demonstrating, disruptive and destructive counterspace capabilities. Furthermore, they are exploiting what they perceive as space vulnerabilities—threatening the vital, national, civil, scientific and economic benefits to the U.S. and the global community…
…Russia’s 2010 military doctrine emphasized space as a crucial component of its defense strategy, and Russia has publicly stated they are researching and developing counterspace capabilities to degrade, disrupt and deny other users of space,” Haney said, adding that “Russia’s leaders also openly assert that Russian armed forces have anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, conduct ASAT research and employ satellite jammers…”, stated Admiral. Cecil D. Haney, commander of U.S. Strategic Command as he told an audience at the Center for a New American Security on January 22, 2016.
It was also just announced that Russia is launching 16 delivery missions into space over the next few months. These rockets can be used to do anything from scientific research to serving in the role as a satellite killer. However, this pales in comparison to what the Daily Mail is releasing regarding the intentions of India along these lines.
The Daily Mail has stated that India is launching a rocket that will release 104 satellites at one time. The military significance of this event cannot be overstated.
India is aligned with the BRIC nations, formed in opposition to US economic dominance, in which China and Russia are their allies. And as I have previously noted, Brazil is participating in “space actitivities with the Russians.
If the US loses control of its satellites, it will lose the military advantage on the ground, in the air and at sea. America’s military forces are numerically inferior. America’s military needs over the horizon (OTH) radar to be an effective fighting force.OTH is one of the cornerstones of military advantage enjoyed by the majority of American military forces. Many of the consequences related to the development of this technology are located here.
