April 14, 2021 Ryan Morgan
China is advancing its counter space weapons capabilities and preparing its military to use weapons ranging from disruptive lasers to anti-satellite missiles that could destroy U.S. satellites.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) highlighted China’s growing anti-satellite weapons (ASAT weapons) in its Annual Threat Assessment report for 2021 released Friday.
The annual ODNI report assesses security threats to the U.S., ranging from transnational issues like the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, to organized criminal and terror organizations, to nation-state competitors to the U.S. like Russia and China.https://americanmilitarynews.com/2021/04/china-building-space-missiles-and-lasers-to-blind-us-satellites-intel-report-says/
