Title

Anti-Satellite Capabilities of United States' Adversaries

Summary

It is well known that the next great frontier will be space. The US still leads that field, but it cannot afford to fall behind. War games show that there is an almost 100% chance that the first to attack in space is the one to win. This white paper will examine the anti-satellite capabilities of US adversarial countries, namely: Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. The paper will focus on different types of attack methods: Direct Ascent, Orbital, Energy, Electronic, Cyber, and Space Awareness.
