    With the aim of enhancing the capabilities of the armed forces to fight wars in space, the government has approved the setting up of a new agency which will develop sophisticated weapon systems and technologies for the purpose.

    "The Cabinet Committee on Security headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cleared the setting up of this new agency called the Defence Space Research Agency (DSRO) which has been entrusted with the task of creating space warfare weapon systems and technologies," sources in the Defence Ministry told ANI.

    The decision was taken at the topmost level by the government some time ago and the agency has started taking shape under a Joint Secretary-level scientist.

    The agency would be provided with a team of scientists which would be working in close coordination with the tri-services integrated defence staff officers.

    The agency would be providing the research and development support to the Defence Space Agency (DSA) which comprises members of the three services. The DSA has been created to help the country fight wars in the space.

    In March this year, the country had carried out the Anti Satellite Test which demonstrated its capability to shoot down satellites in space.

    With this missile test, India joined an elite club of four nations with such capability. The test also helped the country develop deterrence capability against adversaries who may want to attack Indian satellites to cripple systems in times of war.

    The Defence Space Agency is being set up in Bengaluru under an Air Vice Marshal-rank officer and will gradually take over the space-related capabilities of the three forces.

    The Modi government has created agencies for tackling space and cyber warfare along with a Special Operations Division to tackle the need for special operations required to be carried out both inside and outside the country.

    All future space weapons, A-Sat tests, military sats should be posted in this thread.

    I have an idea.

    if possible.


    We should build a military space station dedicated as Nuclear weapons command center.


    It should be placed in upper GTO for survival against A-Sat attacks.

    It should be connected with multiple spy satellites via space lasers. They should form a grid system to give this station a 360 view of entire earth.

    This dedicated station would be manned at all times by military people.

    It should directly fall under PMO.

    Such station would guarantee our second strike survivability.

    It would also provide direct safe communication link between PMO and forces.

    We should develop nuclear warhead carrying satellites.

    [​IMG]


    Why limit ourselves with missile launch warheads why not have bunch of satellites with nuclear warheads?

    Such sats would be in hundreds surrounding earth.

    They would directly communicate with military space station.

    They would be flying all across earth. giving them global coverage.

    The war heads should be maneuverable for pinpoint accuracy.

    With just push of a button we can target any part of the world and that too in seconds.


    If we develop and deploy this weapon then we will race ahead of China and even USA to become a world superpower.

    I hope you are joking right? According to outer space treaty , militarization of Space is prohibited

    Very risky ideas.

    That is not the kind of weapons one should look to put in space IMO. No powerful country would tolerate a nuke dropping station circling above them. Besides, Ito be very very expensive to upkeep and not worth the animosity it'll generate.

    Rather than that, we need a satellite destroying space station that can employ hundreds of small missiles to take out satellites. Or, which can target ICBMs when it leaves atmosphere as a missile defense systems.

    Opinion | What it would take for India to become a proper space power
    It is not Star Wars yet, but space has undoubtedly become a military theatre. It is time to rethink our approach.

    Not a new idea. Orbital weapon stations have been thought before. They won't survive in GTO as ASat ranges can be increased very easily .

    And it's not just missile. An ASat can release a tiny satellite kill vehicle from lower altitude towards GTO times perfectly to collide with weapons station.

    Also with hypersonic weapons capable of striking anywhere on globe within minutes. Space based weapons are pointless unless aliens show up for a battle. then I will have to take matters into my own hands lol.

    maybe develop an A Sat protection system in future.

    These are just raw ideas.


    I already did but those weapons aren't nuclear and doesn't have a command system in space.

    Not possible. If possible, not economically viable. It will be very costly & may be heavy too. 4 aane ki murgi mein 12 aane ka masala jayega.

    Better is to have capability to launch more SATs quickly.
    US has Minotaur, Russia has START, China has Kuiazhou and we are developing SSLV for quick launches.
    They still are very powerful weapons. Try to understand, nuclear weapons are mass destruction devices and cause trouble in neighboring countries as well as atmosphere too.

    IMO future wars will be heavily space based. Many countries are now considering a deicated space force for future.

    We must think outside the box to to see a space war scenario.

    We are seing but more in pragmatic approach. Nuclear warfare on and towards earth should be avoided altogether. It doesn't only hurts the nation we nuke but us & our environment also.
