CHINA and Russia are developing weapons that have the power to destroy American satellites in the event of a conflict, a top general warned lawmakers yesterday according to reports.

US Defence Intelligence Agency Director Lieutenant General Robert Ashley spoke to the Senate Armed Services Committee alongside National Intelligence Director Dan Coats to make the stark warning.

Mr Ashley said: “They understand the dependencies that we have on space and so they’re developing capabilities for how to counter that, whether it’s a direct-energy weapon that is terrestrial, whether it is a co-orbital attack satellite, whether it’s jamming from the ground.

“So, they’re looking at strategies and how they develop really kind of a layered approach to deny us that capability because they realise how integral it is, not only for us but it will be integral for them, as well.”

Both men agreed the US currently has a “significant advantage” over Chinese and Russian space capabilities.
