Here’s something that could really put a damper on US-China trade talks.

Two weeks after DNI Dan Coats warned about US adversaries expanding “their use of space-based reconnaissance, communications and navigations systems,” Bloomberg reported that China’s recent development of “sophisticated” capabilities for “satellite inspection and repair” and “space debris cleanup” might actually be a ruse for something far more nefarious.

Quantum radar is a remote-sensing method based on quantum entanglement.

 

The state-owned Chinese company responsible for developing high-end electronics has claimed that the next version of its quantum radar will be even more powerful than previously thought.

In 2016, China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) announced that it had tested a quantum radar with a range of around 62 miles, or 100 kilometers – roughly five times further than the range of its US and German competitors, Popular Science reported. The next generation of the radar will be capable of tracking ballistic missiles in outer space and aircraft flying at extremely high altitudes, the South China Morning Post reported Friday.

By mounting a quantum radar onto a near-space vehicle, China’s air force could “effectively monitor high-speed flying objects in the upper atmosphere and above,” CETC said at an industry exhibition in Nanjing, SCMP added. Continue reading

A trial model of Russia’s nuclear-capable outer space strategic bomber will be developed by 2020, according to its developer.

Russian commander of the Strategic Missile Forces (SMF), Colonel General Sergei Karakayev, had earlier reported that the Russian Strategic Missile Forces Academy has already developed and tested an engine for the experimental aircraft. Continue reading
