Can’t hide it? A picture reveals the “secret weapons” of the US space force

A few days ago, the U.S. space force posted pictures on “Twitter” to disclose the main responsibilities of nine units under its space operations command. Although this picture seems plain, the drive, the US media, has found that the “9th Delta Force”, which is responsible for operating various test vehicles such as the “X-37B”, has now been entrusted with the important task of “orbital operations”. This seems to indicate that the ultimate use of these highly classified test vehicles is space warfare. According to the U.S. space force, its space operations command has nine brigade level forces called Delta, of which the first to the ninth units are responsible for combat training, space area awareness, electronic warfare, missile early warning, command and control, network operations, intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance, satellite communication and navigation, orbital warfare and other tasks. What is particularly noteworthy is that the “9th Delta Force”, which has been responsible for operating various mysterious spacecraft such as the X-37B orbital test vehicle, has been explicitly required to carry out “orbital warfare”. Its responsibility is to carry out military operations such as operational defense in space to deter and defeat the space threats of opponents. It is reported that the force was just established in September this year, and its predecessor was the “Air Force 750 operation brigade” stationed at Shriver Air Force Base in Colorado. < p > < p > according to the drive website, delta 9 has four units, namely the 1st and 3rd Space Operations Squadron, the 750th Combat Support Squadron, and the 1st task force. < / P > < p > fighting in space requires not only powerful weapons, but also battlefield surveillance, communication and other systems. This can be seen from the institutional setup of the 9th delta force. < / P > < p > the 1st space combat squadron is responsible for the operation of a series of space-based surveillance satellites, including the Space-Based Surveillance System, the advanced technology risk reduction system, the combat responsive space5 and the geosynchronous space situational awareness program. According to its official website, the SBSS launched in 2010 is the first space-based sensor specially designed for “space area perception” of the US military, which can observe and identify targets with meter accuracy for satellites in low earth orbit, semi synchronous orbit and synchronous orbit. < / P > < p > the third space operations squadron is responsible for managing communications satellite constellations such as Defense Satellite Communications System-3 and broadband global satellite communications, providing secure high-speed data communications links for the president, the Secretary of defense, theater commanders, and global strategic and tactical forces. The 750th Combat Support Squadron is responsible for providing training and support to delta 9 forces, as well as providing information support to help improve and develop new operational tactics, technologies, and procedures. Task Force 1 is an important space-based demonstration and test agency of the US space force, which is responsible for accelerating the transformation of research concepts into space combat capabilities by using innovative and scientific methods. < / P > < p > for a long time, the U.S. military has been tight lipped about the development of space weapons, only admitting that it has several electronic warfare systems for satellites. However, some senior U.S. officials have repeatedly hinted that they are studying other means of space warfare. For example, in 2015, U.S. Air Force General John Hatten, then commander of the air force’s space command, said there were more ways to fight in space than to operate satellites without harming and interfering with hostile satellites, but they could not be explained in detail. There is no doubt that as the executive unit of orbital warfare, the technical test carried out by the 9th delta force is likely to become the secret weapon of the US Army in space warfare in the future. “The drive” website specifically introduces three types of aircraft tested by the force in recent years: < / P > < p > the most well-known is the X-37B, which has been in orbit by Task Force 1 since it first entered space. X-37B’s “truck type” payload module is very suitable for space weapon testing. Experts have been speculating whether it carries laser, microwave and other weapon systems. < / P > < p > in addition, task force 1 was responsible for operating the experimental Angel aircraft and plans to take control of the eagle from the US Air Force laboratory this year. It is reported that “angel” can safely approach the target aircraft based on autonomous navigation technology; and “Eagle” can even release “sub spacecraft” for approaching, identifying and exploring other spacecraft. In terms of their technical characteristics, both of them have the ability to approach the opponent satellite, peep and photograph, collect electronic signals, and even make them ineffective by means of close range interference and direct impact. It’s also known as the killer satellite. < / P > < p > now, both X-37B and “killer satellite” have been concentrated in a combat unit specially responsible for orbital warfare, which is bound to play a very important role in the US space operations.
