According to Brian Weeden, a former U.S. Air Force space and missile operations officer, in recent years the U.S. national security space community has been shifting their efforts to defend a more “contested” space community. At present, there are more than 150 U.S. military and intelligence satellites in orbit, providing important national security capabilities such as precision navigation and timing, global communications, missile warning, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. If those satellites ever came under attack, or were rendered useless, it could open the door for our adversaries to invade.

The weaponization of space has been a subject of controversy since the days of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, but unlike when it was discussed back in the 1980’s’s, the technology to weaponize space actually exists today, and it has for some time.

You may recall, in 2007, China launched a land based “satellite killer,” and to test the technology they blew up their own FENGYUN 1C polar-orbiting weather satellite. Whether it was deliberate, or whether the act was poorly thought out, the consequence of blowing up their own satellite left space debris everywhere, and to this day computers on earth have to continuously monitor every last piece of the debris that resulted from the explosion.
