Images show Chinese anti-satellite laser base

XINJIANG, CHINA — Recent satellite images exposed a secret anti-satellite laser base and weapons facilities in Xinjiang, reports The Print.

The images were provided by retired Indian Army Colonel and satellite imagery analyst Vinyak Bhat.

The images show a base located near a lake 145 miles or roughly 233 kilometers south of the capital of Xinjiang.

The pictures show a directed energy weapons facility, also known as a DEW.

According to Bhat, the facility is made up of four buildings with sliding roofs.

Bhat believes that the buildings contain chemical lasers that can be used to disable satellites.

Images also show an experimental electromagnetic pulse facility or EMP facility.

When used as a weapon, EMPs can damage electronic devices and at high levels can generate a lightning strike that can destroy buildings or planes.

According to The Print, this facility is being used for military research.

Bhat also photographed a mobile pulse generator.

This type of weapon uses non-nuclear pulses to create electromagnetic interference that can quickly disarm satellites.

According to The Print, China also has space tracking stations across the country including in Tibet.

These stations are believed to provide information on satellites they want to target.
