Pentagon's New Military Satellite Program Poses Threat to Russia

Washington recently raised a great fuss over the alleged "Russian threat", citing, in particular, possible space-based nuclear deployments. Moscow shredded the speculations, suggesting that the US is using the rumors as a smokescreen for its own military programs.

Hours after the US press published groundless claims of Russia's space-based nuclear program, the Pentagon sent "a missile-tracking system" into orbit – part of the Department of Defense's new plan dubbed Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture that aims to fill the low-Earth orbit with myriads of small and cheap satellites.

 The New York Times broke the Pentagon's new initiative on February 15, explaining that the US military had adopted an approach similar to Elon Musk's Starlink satellite constellation. If America's adversaries knock down even a dozen of those small and cheap Pentagon satellites, the system would continue operating shifting to other units, according to the media outlet. As Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen H. Hicks stated last month, the Pentagon will be able to launch those small cost-effective satellites "almost weekly."
