  • India to Launch First Simulated Space Warfare Exercise

    Reports of a tabletop wargame speak to India’s ongoing efforts to develop its space policy.

    including kinetic physical, non-kinetic physical
    What's that exactly ?

      We are roughly following US model. With eye on China as potential competitor and possible threat.

        hope it provides few answers .

          On the basis of those explanations non kinetic physical doesn't make sense. I would read the terms that kinetic physical was something like a bullet or other projectile whilst non kinetic physical is something akin to a shield

            non kinetic physical attack according to me, like

            attacks on US Consulate and workers in Cuba and China .

            The mystery began late in 2016. Personnel attached to the U.S. embassy in Havana developed symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and insomnia after hearing strange loud sounds or feeling a sensation of pressure. Since then, dozens of diplomats have been withdrawn from Cuba, and international tensions have risen. This month, the mystery spread, with reports from the U.S. Department of State that "a number" of diplomats at its consulate in Guangzhou, China, had been flown home with symptoms similar to those reported in Cuba—where two more diplomats have reportedly fallen ill. Yet 18 months in, an explanation is nowhere in sight, although hypotheses have proliferated.

            Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson blamed a deliberate "health attack" for the Cuba ailments, whereas some neuroscientists and psychologists—and a panel of Cuban scientists—have written them off as the result of stress. Some unaffected diplomats from the Havana embassy agree. "There was a perfect storm of suggestion and paranoia," one told Science, speaking on condition of anonymity.

            But a few researchers are finding hints of a physical cause. In February, a team at the University of Pennsylvania described neurological deficits in embassy personnel who had reported symptoms. And in unpublished results, Michael Hoffer, an otolaryngologist at the University of Miami in Florida, and his colleagues describe a unique vestibular and cognitive disorder in two dozen people evacuated from the Havana embassy. They believe some kind of directed energy device may have caused inner-ear damage.

              Think Space Force is a joke? Here are four major space threats to take seriously

              By: Joe Gould   August 9, 2018.


              1) Kinetic physical weapons.Satellites are vulnerable to objects that can be launched into space to take them out (like ballistic missiles) or a satellite that can be placed in orbit and intentionally maneuvered into another satellite’s path. Ground stations can be attacked by conventional military weapons or disrupted through an attack on the power grid.
              China, as Pence mentioned Thursday, destroyed one of its own satellites in low-Earth orbit in 2007 and has since developed a capability likely able to destroy geosynchronous satellites. Russia is reportedly reviving Cold War-era efforts to develop missiles that target satellites and weapons that can maneuver close to satellites to damage or destroy them. (Both Iran and North Korea could modify missiles for a crude anti-satellite capability.)

              2) Non-kinetic physical weapons.Lasers, high-powered microwaves and electromagnetic pulse weapons — like a nuclear detonation in space — can have physical effects on satellites and ground stations without making physical contact with them. Lasers can also be used to temporarily dazzle or permanently blind mission-critical sensors on satellites, while high-powered microwave weapons, best deployed from another high-flying platform, can disrupt or permanently damage a satellite’s electronics.

              Pence called out Russia’s work to develop an airborne laser that would be able to destroy space-based systems, but China is believed to already have much of the technology necessary to field an operational capability to dazzle or blind a satellite. And last year, Chinese media celebrated the development of a shipboard, miniaturized microwave weapon that could evolve into an orbital anti-satellite system. In 2011, the Christian Science Monitor quoted an unnamed European intelligence source stating that Iran managed to “blind” a U.S. satellite by “aiming a laser burst quite accurately” — sparking speculation it obtained the technology from Russia or China.

                As I said - nonsense technobabble lasers are kinetic weapons - they transfer energy

                  So brain control. Havana Consulate attacks. Group Hypnosis. Dream control. Psychological warfare all are
                  kinetic weapons - they transfer energy
                  ????

                    Yes thanks.

                    Well there's this obviously :

                    But at least now I know what they're talking about


                    I suppose that when a laser is used to blind someone or something, or guide a projectile to target it could be said to be a non-kinetic weapon(system), when it's used to set something on fire on the other hand...?

                      I think we should leave Dictionary people to decide on new words and their definitions.
