Report: Russian EW (Electronic Warfare) equipment and ASAT (anti-satellite) systems have both proved incapable of shutting down Starlink and Maxar

A month ago Russia revealed that commercial space satellite-based services might be considered a legitimate target because Starlink provides Ukrainian forces with superior communications than what Russian troops have, while Maxar commercial photo satellites have documented Russian failures in Ukraine in embarrassing detail. What the Russians don’t discuss openly is the fact that Russian EW… Read More Report: Russian EW (Electronic Warfare) equipment and ASAT (anti-satellite) systems have both proved incapable of shutting down Starlink and Maxar

A look in Ukrainian app (ePPO) which enables civilians to quickly report incoming Russian cruise missiles

November 10, 2022: Ukrainian app developers recently created an app (ePPO) to enable civilians to quickly report incoming Russian cruise missiles, especially the new Iranian Shahed 136 Russia obtained which is low (down to 100 meters) slow (180 kilometers an hour) and noisy. These are often sent in small swarms (4 to 12 missiles) and… Read More A look in Ukrainian app (ePPO) which enables civilians to quickly report incoming Russian cruise missiles

News Monitors Analysis: The Starlink Space-Based Communication System Threat to Russia and China

Russia and China have been very public about their envy, anger and hostility towards the new Starlink space-based communication system. Russia was the first to feel the pain caused by Starlink and declared Starlink founder and leader Elon Musk an enemy who should be executed. China was less emotional and more practical by making public… Read More News Monitors Analysis: The Starlink Space-Based Communication System Threat to Russia and China

Analysis: The US Space Force and Rise of Satellite Hacking Systems

A lot of these negative attitudes come from fictional representations of future space travel, which feature a lot of combat. That may be the case during the development of space travel but currently it is more efficient to put satellites into orbit and defend them with robotic systems. It is currently too expensive and dangerous… Read More Analysis: The US Space Force and Rise of Satellite Hacking Systems

Laser Weapons: A Deep Look on Israel’s “laser wall” Air Defense System

In early 2022 Israel announced that it was going to deploy a “laser wall” air defense system and do it in less than two years. This seemed unrealistic to most air defense experts, but Israel has been developing more capable laser anti-aircraft weapons for over a decade, along with radar systems that can detect the… Read More Laser Weapons: A Deep Look on Israel’s “laser wall” Air Defense System

China complains that SpaceX has put too many Starlink satellites into LEO (Low Earth Orbit)

China has complained to the UN that American firm SpaceX has put too many of its Starlink satellites into LEO (Low Earth Orbit) and one of them recently came too close to a new Chinese space station. China wants SpaceX to do something about that and demands that the UN declare Starlink a danger to… Read More China complains that SpaceX has put too many Starlink satellites into LEO (Low Earth Orbit)

The new sensor system is an MSI (Multi-Spectral Imaging)

Recently the U.S. Air Force successfully tested a new MS-177 sensor system for its RQ-4B Global Hawk UAV. The new sensor system is an MSI (multi-spectral imaging) type and the third generation of space satellite quality radar/optical sensors for the 13-ton RQ-4B UAV. This is a large, jet powered UAV that entered service in 2006.… Read More The new sensor system is an MSI (Multi-Spectral Imaging)
