Meanwhile, the United States is building its own capabilities against hostile spacecraft. Most of these systems are secretive, but the Space Army has made plans for it Install advanced electronic jamming devices to interfere with enemy satellite communications signals.
A US Navy satellite jammer called Counter-Communications Systems (CCS) Block 10.2, a satellite jammer developed by L3Harris and commissioned in March 2020. The company won a $125 million contract last month to manufacture 16 CCS 10.2 units by year 2025, which will be used on US military bases in the states and foreign operations.
Ed Zoys, president of L3Harris Space and Airborne Systems, says CSS allows the military to control the electromagnetic spectrum, as he puts it. He added that by denying their enemies the opportunity to use spacecraft, they are defending American combat operations.
