China is developing anti-satellite missiles and other exotic weapons
that can destroy or disrupt vital U.S. military and commercial
communications, space warfare experts told Congress on Tuesday.
“The current and evolving counterpace threat posed by China to U.S.
military operations in the Asia Pacific theater and outside is extremely
serious,” said Ashley J. Tellis, a former State Department and National
Security Council strategic specialist.
“And the threat ranks on par with the dangers posed by Chinese
offensive cyber operations to the United States more generally,” said
Tellis, now with the Carnegie Endowment.
China’s growing space warfare capabilities were the subject of a
hearing at the House Armed Services joint subcommittees on strategic
forces and seapower.
