  • Ajey Lele: On Jan 11, 2007 China has successfully demonstrated KKV (kinetic kill vehicle) technology as a part of its ASAT capability. It has also been reported that they have covertly developed and successfully test the jamming technologies which could be used for temporality or permanent jamming of enemy satellites. Also, there are unconfirmed reports about China having developed 'Parasitic satellite' which could be modified as space mines.
