Satellites have been "out of range" until now. But it can change soon.
Satellites are different.
To remain in orbit that is not geostationary (above the equator and very high up) satellites have to move so there is no way you could have GPS or GLONASS satellites that don't overfly most of the surface of the earth (eventually)... they go around every 90 minutes of so in a big spiral...
If you shoot down satellites over your territory then you damn yourself and everyone else to not have GPS or satellite communciations of all kinds which is just too valuable to risk.
And satellites are easy to kill... if you can launch a satellite into orbit (the soviets did it first remember) then you can launch a satellite on the opposite orbit and it will eventually collide and destroy both objects... shooting down satellites is as easy as launching them is.
It is funny to see you comparing the use of an engineering weapon of a nature similar to the electronic warfare, making minimal phisical damage to unmmaned intelligence satellites, in order to dissable them, with the September 11 of 2001 attack, that caused 3000 civilian deaths in the heart of the US. To note that not even this attack caused a nuclear answer, despite Afghanistan and Irak were considered responsible of the attacks.
Your point means that all I need do is change the use of an anti ship missile to a blinding laser that burns out the eyes of the crew of the US ship... blinding them is only doing minimal physical damage afterall, but the laser is intended to disable the satellites optical systems... not just dazzle them.
The Peresvet systems seems to be a projection of the Electronic Warfare to the space, and like the Electronic Warfare seems oriented to cause a mal function of the systems and weapons of the enemy, not to destroy them phisically, despite in some cases, the mal function created can lead to the destruction of the foreign system/weapon.
You make it sound like a jammer that just blocks the signals the satellites use temporarily... that is not the case... it would have been possible to make such a system in the 1970s if that was all that was wanted...
next version will be hand held Peresvet
And the version after that.... IS BEHIND YOU!!!
