Light wars: space-based lasers among Beijing’s hi-tech arms

The blinding and destroying of American military satellites by China in warfare, enabling an almost-unhindered invasion of the American mainland, is called “assassin’s mace“.

Both can be researched further with the following articles:

AMERICA’S ACUPUNCTURE POINTS, PART 2: The assassin’s mace

As you can see after reading the articles, it’s imperative and in America’s best interests to stop playing games with its military budget and wasting time with focusing on thousands of individual terrorists that multiply after their death.

Arsenal including electromagnetic railguns and microwave weapons aims to neutralize web of satellites that give US its main strategic edge

China’s military is developing powerful lasers, electromagnetic railguns and high-power microwave weapons for use in a future “light war” involving space-based attacks on satellites.

Beijing’s push to produce so-called directed-energy weapons aims to neutralize America’s key strategic advantage: the web of intelligence, communication and navigation satellites enabling military strikes of unparalleled precision expeditionary warfare far from US shores.

The idea of a space-based laser gun was disclosed in the journal Chinese Optics in December 2013 by three researchers, Gao Ming-hui, Zeng Yu-quang and Wang Zhi-hong. All work for the Changchun Institute for Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics – the leading center for laser weapons technology. Continue reading

Israel’s Laser Beam Defense System Can Blow Up Incoming Rockets In Mid Air

Israel has plans to deploy a missile-defense laser called Iron Beam, a high-powered weapon that can heat up incoming short-range missiles until they explode, Israeli media reported over the weekend. Though seldom actually used, laser weapons technology like this has actually been around for years, and is increasingly common throughout the world. Laser missile-defense systems were first developed in the United States, and the American government subsidized the Israeli Iron Beam program, Reuters reported. Continue reading
