Orbital Electronic Warfare

the us put a satellite in space to help jam other satellites.

naturally, technology such as this exists for many years now and out dates information warfare by a few years.

however, by putting active targeted weaponry in space, what’s next? just because it is em radiation does not mean it is not a weapon.

i believe that weapon development to counter satellites is going to become more and more in the spot light in the next few years.

from blinding spy satellites through disturbing ground communication all the way to (maybe) herf and emp.

it’s not all about missiles, however much americans like them. one thing i do know is – if the americans have them, soon china and the eu will as well if they don’t already.
