Warzone/The Drive: Space Force Just Launched Satellites Capable Of 'Inspecting' Enemy Satellites  

Two new satellites launched as part of Space Force's push for more space domain awareness can get up close and personal with other objects in orbit. 

Space Force launched two additional satellites today as part of its push for greater Space Domain Awareness, or SDA, in geosynchronous orbit some 22,000 miles away from Earth. The two satellites are part of the Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program, or GSSAP, and will allow Space Force to not only locate and identify objects in this distant orbit, but also maneuver close to them in order to inspect them or assess their capabilities. The launch comes as Space Force leadership continues to sound the alarm about the risks posed to U.S. satellites in orbit.
