The Space Force and other Pentagon agencies will need to respond to the growing threat of anti-satellite capabilities. A new report says Russia and China are making advances in counterspace weapons faster than the U.S. is approving its defenses.

  • While the U.S. has protections against some types of anti-satellite attacks, we could be doing a lot more to protect military satellites, according to Kaitlyn Johnson, Deputy Director of the Aerospace Security Project at CSIS.
  • Johnson said in order to protect the satellites, we must know where they are, so more data and investment in space domain awareness capabilities is necessary.
  • She also said active defenses, as opposed to passive defenses such as cybersecurity measures, are controversial, because it is difficult to distinguish between counterspace weapons and defensive technologies to protect satellites.
