According to the Daily Mail, Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification, and Compliance Dr. Yleem Poblete warned that unusual movements of a Russian satellite, called a “space apparatus inspector,” could be an indication that the country is weaponizing its space program, including the employment of a “combat laser system” that could take U.S. satellites offline.
“The United States is concerned that what appears as very abnormal behavior by this so-called ‘space apparatus inspector,'” Poblete said. “We do not know for certain what it is and there is no way to verify its mission. Moreover, Russian intentions with respect to this satellite are unclear.”
