This telescope can monitor 35000 kilometers
US Space is giving this telescope and a technology called Numerica to the Space Force. It is a startup company based in Colorado, USA, which already operates various ground-based telescopes. As reported by Space News, the startup signed a three million dollar contract with the US Air Force to build the telescope. The company won $ 750,000 as a Small Business Innovation Research Award during the US Air Force’s Pitch Day event in 2019. In this event, the company shared important information to create a telescope for the American Airforce and to strengthen space technology. Todd Brost, director of special projects in Numerica, confirmed that one of the six new daytime telescopes has been installed in Colorado, while the rest have been set in Australia and Spain. Actually, sunlight during the day makes it difficult to see the objects of space with the help of binoculars. Traditionally larger and more expensive telescopes are needed to glare into space during the day. Numerica has been a pioneer in developing telescopes to provide day-to-day business tracking services of satellites. This company real-time tracks things in space not only at night but also in day.
America is troubled by Russia’s increasing power in space
America is troubled by Russia’s growing power in space. This is the reason why Airforce has tied up with this startup company. The company says that its telescopes use high-speed shortwave infrared cameras, customized optics, and advanced algorithms to observe satellites orbiting the Earth. The company claims, these telescopes are not only becoming increasingly autonomous, but are also cheaper to operate. Director of the company Brost said that the biggest interest from the government is to maintain the State of Art Technology for a long time. So that you know that there is no conspiracy against you in space. The ability to keep an eye on space at all times can become a huge force for the US military. This becomes even more important when Russia tested two on-orbit anti-satellite weapons last year. There are other examples of unusual activity related to Russian satellites, including so-called interceptor satellites. These satellites can hijack or hack any other satellites. Last year, the US military raised concerns about a Russian interceptor satellites that appeared to be connected to the US’s KH-11 spy satellites.
Russia is creating a new satellite from the satellite in space
General John ‘Jay’ Raymond, a top US Army recently created command command, told TIME magazine that American intelligence experts have been monitoring Russia’s satellite satellites Cosmos 2542 and 2543 for several months. He has been keeping an eye on it since it was only a satellite and was launched into space on 26 November 2019 with the help of a Soyuz rocket. General Jai said that 11 days after launch the satellite was split into two and gave birth to a new satellite. According to sources, the US Army was not happy with this satellite since then. In mid-January this year, both Russian satellites came to the US military’s most powerful spy satellite, the KH-11. It is not yet clear whether the Russian satellite was threatening or monitoring the American. Seeing these two Russian satellites, America came into being. After this, the US objected to Russia through diplomatic means and then went away from the Russian satellite and started circling the Earth.
America has the most searched satellite
The United States has one of the most searched satellites in the world, collecting spy information along with spying on countries around the world. If they were destroyed by any one of China or Russia, then America would have to fight like a blind man in war, because it would have trouble getting intelligence information.
India also has the ability to kill in space
India also surprised the world by successfully testing anti satellite missile in March 2019. The Indian missile destroyed a dormant satellite in the Earth’s Lower Earth Orbit within three minutes of its launch. Actually, an anti-satellite weapon is a weapon designed to neutralize or destroy satellites for strategic military purposes of any country. Till date no such weapons have been used in any war. However, many countries consider such missile systems necessary to demonstrate their capabilities in space and to continue their space program at an uninterrupted pace. As of now, the four countries of the world, America, Russia, China and India only have this capability.
