The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is making significant progress in developing advanced weapons that can destroy orbiting satellites and launch from space at targets on Earth, a top U.S. Pentagon official has warned.

Rear Admiral Michael Studeman issued the warning during a webinar for an intelligence-security trade group last week, according to Bloomberg

China is building weapons with abilities that range from “dazzling to jamming, to kinetic kill-from-the-ground, from space — all that, they’re on the march,” Studeman revealed.

“They take a look at our space capability and want to equal and exceed those and be able to dominate to guarantee themselves the maneuvering they need to be able to secure their objectives if they’re in a fight,” Studeman said in a statement during the webinar, according to the report.

The Asian hegemon is investing extensively in weapons that have the ability to destroy and jam satellites

Such weapons can pose an immediate threat to America's national security and was one of the reasons for President Donald Trump to establish the U.S. Space Force, MSN reported.

The U.S. Intelligence Community was warned about China’s military advancements by the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in April, according to The Daily Caller.

The warning stated that the Chinese military will “integrate space services — such as satellite reconnaissance and positioning, navigation, and timing and satellite communications — into its weapons and command-and-control systems to erode the U.S. military’s information advantage,” MSN reported.

The DNI insisted that the development of space weapons will be an integral part of future military deterrence in space, MSN reported.

The DNI also expressed concern for ASAT weapons and the need to “field new destructive and nondestructive ground- and space-based antisatellite (ASAT) weapons,” in its annual “Threat Assessment” report.

The report also specified that China has developed “ground-based ASAT missiles intended to destroy satellites in low-earth orbit and ground-based ASAT lasers probably intended to blind or damage sensitive space-based optical sensors.”

The U.S. is taking preventative measures against the threats that China may soon pose.

Space Force is constructing a collection of up to 48 such ground-based weapons over the next seven years, MSN reported.

The first of such weapons was declared operational in March 2020.

In terms of weapon disparities, Studeman provided an assessment of the future of the development of weapons used in space for our national defense.

He spoke of the increase in development by the United States and acknowledged the threat China poses, MSN reported.

“It will be a game of measures and countermeasures and counter-countermeasures for some time to come.”
