Nato building ‘space hub’ to track Chinese and Russian weapons

NATO experts are building a ‘space’ hub among threats from Chinese and Russian weapons.

Jens Stoltenberg, Nato secretary general announced on Wednesday, October 21, that the experts are working on building a new ‘space hub’ to keep an eye on Chinese and Russians weapons, which Nato fears may try to “shoot down satellites”.

Head of the Ministry of Defence’s Strategic Command General Sir Patrick Sanders warned that both countries were developing anti-satellite weapons and Britain, therefore, “is under direct threat, certainly in the cyber domain”.

The new Nato space centre will be at the Ramstein air base in Germany and will gather information about possible threats to satellites.

Mr Stoltenberg warned:  “Some nations, including Russia and China, are developing anti-satellite systems which could blind, disable or shoot down satellites.”

“We are under direct threat in the UK, certainly in the cyber domain and also to greater extent in the maritime and the air domain,” he said.
