As Starlink, Elon Musk’s satellite Internet network, has become a military communications tool, Chinese scientists offer various solutions to track, hack or directly destroy it. The “hard” method with rockets does not seem to be preferred because it is expensive and dangerous.
Difficulty with new technologies with Tesla,Neuralink and soon maybe Twitter, has been at the heart of the conflict in Ukraine for three months now. Since the beginning of the Russian aggression, the billionaire has decided to help Ukraine by making his Small Satellite Set available … “data-url =” https://news.google.com/sciences/definitions / universe-constellation-21 / “data-more =” Read more “> satellites for providing internet connection. A choice that, in his words, means and this Monday we learn that it is also in China’s search engine.
According toChinese scientists are currently working on “methods of destroying” satellites . The reason? The US military relies on this constellation of satellites to significantly increase the speed, which has direction and intensity is represented by a vector, a vector of speed. Relative speed is the speed of one body relative to another or relative to the image. “Data-image =” https://cdn.futura-sciences.com/buildsv6/images/midioriginal/3/1/ 9 / 319daf63f4_77541_leibniz-dp .jpg “data- image url = “https://news.google.com/sciences/definitions/physics-velocity-324/” data-more = “Read definition”> data transmission, in particular for combat aircraft; and fight and could use it to follow in the future available to Russia and China.
“Hard” method or “soft” method?
A technological asset that China fears because Musk has now placed more than 2,000 satellites in itbass, and that he plans to send twenty times more! This report advocates “low-cost” but “high return” ways of decommissioning this network. According to these researchers, Starlink represents “huge potential for and China must take countermeasures to monitor, deactivate or even destroy this constellation.
According to South China Morning Postit is unlikely that China will use the “hard” methodto destroy them, partly because it is very expensive, but also because the debris caused by this destruction could pose a huge danger in space. We will therefore move on to the “soft” method with Apparatus rays … .jpg “data-url =” https://news.google.com/sciences/definitions/physics-laser-1989/ “data-more =” Read more “> or interfering systems.
What if China created its own constellation
In their report, scientists mention the use of radio jammers – which can disrupt communication or directly erase electronic components – or lasers whose. China is already able to exclude satellites, but individually. There is a constellation there and it is of course more complicated. The study already warns that decommissioning several satellites will not be enough to overthrow Starlink, as it is a “decentralized system”.
Finally, one of the recommended solutions would be to respond to Starlink by creating a similar network of small satellites, both to monitor the constellation of Elon Musk, but also to be able to quickly hack or deactivate a large part of the network.I’m just starting …
