China's impressive and growing space capabilities should worry the U.S. "a lot," a top Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) official says.
The official, Doug Wade, serves as chief of the DIA's China Mission Group, and he made the comments during a virtual seminar hosted by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance on Tuesday.
"China has a really robust space program," Wade said. "It's probably second only to the United States."
Wade added that China's space program is used for military, intelligence, civilian, scientific and economic purposes. Those capabilities "worry us a lot," he said, particularly China's advancement in counter-space technology.
