Apparently, the war will not only take place in the Earth’s land alone. Therefore, America is poised to build war bases in outer space.
Big plan was disclosed by the Secretary of the Department of Defense, Robert Work in intelligence conference GEOINT 2015. According to Robert, the construction of the base was originally started 6 months.
Bases are claimed to be able to hunt military satellites or spy other state property. Hopefully, these bases capable of preventing attacks directed at an American-owned satellite.
Which should be wary, the base was not only act as a center of American weapons in space, but also a gathering place for all American-owned satellite data. By doing so, the intelligence of the Earth and outer space more easily regulated.
It can make the American easily find enemy soldiers in war zones on Earth. Before finally launching a counterattack.
““If Russian soldiers are snapping pictures of themselves in war zones and posting them in social media sites, we want to know exactly where those pictures were taken,” said Robert Work, Gizmodo (24/06).
He was referring to a Russian soldier named Alexander Sotkin who uploaded pictures from Ukraine of military equipment made by Russia. This information was useful to identify that it was Russian soldiers and equipment operating in Ukraine while Moscow denied its resources were located there.
Air Force General Lester Lyles described the Pentagon’s focus on space by referring to it as the “the ultimate higher ground.” Lyles hopes that the center will allow the Pentagon to transform the satellite system of the U.S. into an important new vantage point.
