Since Starlink, Elon Musk’s satellite internet network, has become a military communication tool, Chinese scientists are offering various solutions to monitor, hack or destroy it directly. The “hard” method with missiles does not seem to be desirable because it is expensive and dangerous.
New technology problems with Tesla,Neurallink and maybe Twitter soon, Ukraine has been at the center of the conflict for three months. From the beginning of the Russian aggression, the billionaire decided to help Ukraine by building it Satellite For the provision of internet connection. A choice that puts his word, And this Monday, we learned that it is also a place of interest in China.
According toChinese scientists are currently working on a method to destroy the satellite . Because? The U.S. military relies heavily on these constellations for dramatic growth Data transmission and especially for fighter planes War and could use it to follow in the future Such as available to Russia and China.
The “hard” method or the “soft” method?
A technological resource that China is concerned about, since Musk has now installed more than 2,000 satellites.Bass, and he plans to send twenty more times! This report speaks of ways to shut down this “low-cost” but “high-return” network. According to these researchers, Starlink represents “a lot of potential Military “and China must develop countermeasures to monitor, deactivate or even destroy this constellation.
According to South China Morning PostIt is unlikely that China will use the “difficult” methodDestroying them, both because it is extremely expensive, but also because the debris caused by this destruction could represent a huge danger in space. So we would rather direct ourselves towards the “soft” approach with the ray Or jamming system.
What if China created its own constellation?
In their report, scientists cited the use of radio jammers – which could disrupt communication or burn electronic components directly – or lasers that. China is already capable of deactivating satellites, but individually. There, it’s a constellation, and it’s obviously more complex. The study has already warned that decommissioning a few satellites will not be enough to bring down Starlink because it is a “decentralized system”.
Finally, one of the proposed solutions is to respond to Starlink by creating a similar network of small satellites, both to monitor Elon Musk’s constellations and to be able to quickly hack or deactivate a large part of the network.Starting …
