India to assess Chinese anti-satellite test: official
Bangalore, Jan. 20 (PTI): China's reported anti-satellite ballistic missile test is a matter of

concern and India will take necessary steps after making an assessment, a top defence official said

today.

M Natarajan, Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister and chief of the Defence Research and

Development Organisation (DRDO), said it was a matter of concern if such missiles could "disable"

satellites, particularly those with GPS, navigation and military applications.

"Countries like US, Russia, Israel and China are, of course, leagues ahead of us. But in times of war,

we too will be highly-dependent on satellites for communications and surveillance," said a senior

military officer.

"Though our relations with Beijing are on the upswing, we always have to factor in China as a

potential threat. Moreover, there are deep military links between China and Pakistan. If China deploys

ASAT weapons, then it's certainly a matter of concern," he added.

Talking about the need for an Aerospace Command some time ago, IAF chief Air Chief Marshal S P Tyagi

had told TOI that space would play a major role in all future wars. "If we have assets in space,

somebody will try to knock them off through hard kills or soft kills. We must be ready for all this,"

he had said.

Coupled with China's expanding military infrastructure in Tibet, the rapidly modernising 2.5 million-

strong People's Liberation Army more than double the Indian forces has always been a source of worry

for India.

"China's ASAT test is definitely a concern for all countries with satellite launch capabilities.

Satellites, after all, form an important part of C3I (communications, command, control and

intelligence) systems," said K Santhanam, former chief advisor at DRDO.
