China secretly launches deadly attack on Indian satellites; Such alarming information is coming from the sources of the investigation of CSAI of America.
In 2016, China attacked Indian satellite communications computer networks. A report by the US-based China Aerospace Studies Institute (CASI) has come up with such alarming information.
The U.S. agency has shared reports on China's space efforts. At the same time, ISRO has acknowledged that there is a possibility of cyber attacks, we need to save the system.
The 142-page report says that between 2012 and 2016, China carried out several cyber attacks.
In 2012, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) was attacked, where China took full control of the JPL.
In addition, the report cites several other cyber attacks in China.
An anti-satellite (A-SAT) missile was used experimentally in 2016 to repel the attack. These Indian missiles are capable of destroying enemy satellites.
The CASI report states that China has many more space technologies that could jeopardize the geosynchronous orbit (GEO) space system from underground space.
They can launch cyber attacks in India with anti-satellite missiles, co-orbital satellites, jammers and other technologies.
However, ISRO scientists say that India has the technology to thwart all these cyber attacks.
