US Space Force hosts war game to test attacked satellite array
PETERSON SPACE TO OBLIGATE BASE, Colorado – The United States is testing Satellite resilience to threats from China and Rweia miles above the earth’s surface, just a few weeks after Rwei shot down aging communication Satellite.
The computer-aided simulations included the potential culling of we. missile pursuit Satellites, Satellite jamming and other electronic devices warthe tariff “effects” which are possible tactics in space warrate. Real Satellites are not used.
On a visit to Schriever Space To obligate Base in Colorado, Under Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks saw the ‘Space Flag ‘simulated space training exercise led by we. To obligates. It was the 13th exercise of its kind and the third to involve partners such as Great Britain, Canada and Australia.
“It happens in rooms like this… people at a relatively junior level in a lot of cases. Collaborate and reflect on challenges and try to understand concepts that seem to make sense and reject ideas that go astray, ”Hicks told reporters en route to Hawaii.
Pentagon leaders are on tour we. bases this week as the Biden administration’s 2023 budget proposal takes shape. The Defense Department hopes to move dollars from the budget towarda military who can deter China and Rweia.
After Rwei has successfully led a campaign againstSatellite missile test last month, we. officials believe there is a growing need to we. Satellite network resistant to attack and use opportunities such as’Space Flag ‘to train.
Satellites are vital for military communications, global positioning navigation and timing systems that are required in the event of war.
10 days space war Game tries to simulate the tip of the we. capacity in space. The training exercise involved an adversarial group working to simulate an aggressor country with space abilities like Rweia or China.
Rweit is not the first country to carry out anti-Satellite testpeach space. The United States played the first in 1959, when Satellites were rare and new.
In Hawaii, Hicks will meet with Pacific military commanders and tour the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam where she will hear about the contamination of the water issues. – Reuters
