Did you know? Under-reported news from the Arms Control Reporter
The US Air Force is planning for attacks on space assets and has deployed an electronic-warfare unit capable of jamming enemy satellites, according to Gen. Lance Lord, head of the US Space Command. "You can't go to war and win without space,” said Lord, who described his command responsibilities as space monitoring, protecting satellites from disruption, and preparing to carry out strikes on enemy spacecraft. Lord added that the US military has a major strategic advantage globally because of its unique satellite communications and intelligence capabilities. "So," he said, "we've got to protect that advantage.… If somebody is trying to use space against us, we could interrupt ...those ...capabilities as needed and as directed by US policy.” {Washington Times 22.9.05}
