    Get smart on Chinese satellites

    Several caught my attention.

    Jilin series of satellites - they are building up to 138 in orbit. They can re-image any location on earth, 15 - 17 times a day. These are listed as civil satellites, no way to independently confirm, so must be presumed as dual use. 15 -17 times a day is almost every hour which is good enough for basic situational awareness to launch long range missiles that can use their on board sensors for the terminal phase to hit the target.

    TJS series of GEO Stationary satellites - these stay in one location. Looks like ELINT packages for Electronic Intelligence - all items emit distinct radio frequencies - and the ELINT sensor soak this up to catalogue everything. TJS also has infra-red sensors - so as soon as a ground based missile lights up - in split seconds that is detected and fed into the Chinese AI brain to assess and action.

    Ludi Tance series of satellites have Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR) that can map and paint constantly creating a very accurate picture of the target areas through clouds and weather.

    The Chinese are on fire when it comes to building their space capabilities. Fret not, we are green on our DEI training.
