Paris: France has successfully launched a state-of-the-art satellite that will help all French armed forces around the world to communicate quickly and securely with each other, but also through military intervention in land and space. Will inform
According to the World News Agency, the spokesman of the French Air and Space Force, Col. Stephen Spate, told the media that the state-of-the-art military communications satellite “Syracuse 4A” has been successfully launched into orbit by the Aryan 5 rocket.
The satellite took off from Coro, French Guiana, over the weekend and completed the mission in 38 minutes and 41 seconds after takeoff. The satellite can monitor its surroundings and is also capable of defending itself against an attack.
Experts say the satellite’s state-of-the-art equipment, such as an anti-jamming antenna and a digital transparent processor on board, is extremely efficient and guarantees high resistance to any kind of interference that impedes communication.
A spokesman for the French Air Force and Space Force said the satellite would speed up and secure communications between the three forces on the ground, and would also alert the French military in space about interference and aggression by other countries’ space forces.
Mark Fanaud, an arms proliferation expert at the Geneva Center for Security Policy, told AFP that the satellite was also protected from “electromagnetic pulses” caused by a nuclear explosion.
The creation of space forces by global powers has created a new military frontier, with rival countries investing heavily in space technology. The United States and France have also accused Russia of violating space borders.
It should be noted that France formed a space force command in July 2019 and in March this year began its first military exercises in space to test the ability to defend its satellites.
