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.


"It will give us visibility into things that are leaving the atmosphere, entering the atmosphere, really all throughout Asia," said a US defence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
