US to station powerful radar, space telescope in Australia

The United States military will station a powerful radar and space telescope in Australia under an agreement unveiled Wednesday.

The deal calls for the first deployment of a US Air Force C-band radar in the southern hemisphere, allowing the Americans to better track space debris as well as Chinese space launches, senior US defence officials told reporters.
