As per news report of The Indian Express, space-based assets could become essential for the conduct of operations in a networked scenario in the future, the Air Chief Marshal said. Speaking at the Jumbo Majumdar International Seminar about the Future Challenges of Aerospace Power, Chaudhari said, “China’s latest demonstration of physically moving one of its disabled satellites into the graveyard orbit is bringing in newer threats in the race to weaponise the space domain, a domain hitherto considered relatively safe.”
