US planning to build ‘space’ spy base in UK to counter Russia and China

The US is reportedly considering building a spy base on British soil with a view to probing “deep space” and safeguarding US and UK space assets from potential attacks by adversaries.

A US Space Force officer told Sky News (July 17), that the plan revolves around building three radar bases around the world, including one potentially in Scotland or alternatively in southern England.

The space-focused spy base in the UK could be fully operational as early as 2025.

Appropriately called the Deep Space Advanced Radar Capability (DARC), the proposed spy base will utilize radar technology which can potentially identify an object the size of a football up to 36,000 kilometers away.

In trying to justify the development of this capability, Lieutenant Colonel Jack Walker of the US Space Force, said: “It [the spy base] is necessary because we want to keep the chain-of-custody of targets that could threaten our systems that are in geosynchronous orbit”.

“It could be satellites or it could just be debris from rocket bodies from other launches”, Lieutenant Colonel Walker told Sky News.
