Several developments have taken place at four Cuban military bases that monitor space activities, including communications.

Based on recent satellite images, modern intelligence facilities have appeared at several military bases in Cuba. In the background, experts suspect that China may be mastering the creation of a network that could be suitable for spying on the United States. Interesting engineering.

The images were taken between March and April and are presented in a report by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Accordingly, construction has begun on three bases near Havana, as well as a base near the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

Without classified material, it's almost impossible to determine exactly what purpose they serve, but given that Cuba has no satellite or space program, it's clear they are building facilities to monitor space.

One of the largest and most active bases is the Bejucal base, which played a leading role during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962: Soviet nuclear weapons were stored here. But recently it has again attracted the attention of specialists, as devices have been installed there that can also be used to intercept electronic communications. Bases are also being built in Wagay and Calabazar, where antennas, radars and satellite surveillance equipment will be installed.

Of the four, El Salao is still under construction, but it is so close to a US base that it is of particular concern to the US.

According to a 2023 report, Beijing has upgraded its intelligence facilities in Cuba, but Washington has been able to prevent China from achieving its goal. Recently, Pentagon press secretary Pat Ryder said that they are confident that China will increase its presence in Cuba, and that the United States will be more determined to disrupt operations.

In addition to China, Cuba has also denied that Beijing has made any espionage-related developments in Cuba.
