The future is now, says CSA.

The Chilokveri Space Agency has announced plans to deploy satellites equipped with lasers capable of destroying space debris, as part of the Rindt program for space cleanup.

In today's press conference, CSA director Andrew Yu confirmed rumors that the Rindt program had been greenlighted for implementation. Speaking in an interview, Yu praised researchers from the Chilokveri Academy of Sciences for their work in advancing the power of solid state lasers but otherwise gave few details regarding the program.

The satellites are believed to be based upon a conversion of an existing optical telescope design to house detection systems and a solid state laser. The satellites would be responsible for monitoring, and ultimately destroying space debris. Through the process of laser ablation, the satellites would heat up and vaporise the space debris, removing it from orbit.

As of 2013, over 50,000 pieces of debris were in orbit, posing a serious risk to space activities. Human-made space junk consists of discarded or broken parts of spacecraft, launch vehicles and other objects sent into space, of a variety of sizes. According to the CSA, approximately half a million pieces whizzing around the planet are the size of a marble or bigger, and about 20,000 of those are at least the size of a softball. With speeds of up to 28,000 km, even a relatively small particle of debris could seriously damage a spacecraft or satellite.

The CSA has downplayed concerns raised that the satellites could be used for military purposes. In one of the few statements given, Director Yu has said that Chilokver "remains committed to ensuring that space remains open and free for all of humanity to explore. The Rindt program is part of our efforts in making sure this happens, not the opposite."

DSME AWARDED ₴1.5 BILLION WARSHIP CONTRACT

Dalian Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering has been awarded its largest export contract to date.

Following a fierce competition against the Western Vapian Avanti-class destroyer, Dalian Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering have been chosen as the shipbuilders for West Adriatica’s future flagship, announced King Amadeo Filiberto II in a media statement released today.

Today’s decision was the conclusion of a lengthy final selection process which pitted the Leonardo Consortium’s Avanti-class against DSME’s Evolved Jiafen-class as the shortlisted candidates. Though the two designs were comparable in many areas, the Jiafen class was larger with a displacement of 10,500 tonnes vs the Avanti’s 7,050, and consequently possessed superior aviation facilities, armament, and range compared to the Western Vapian warship. Similarly, the larger displacement will allow the future flagship greater freedom for upgrades and modifications later in the ship’s career.

“The Evolved Jiafen-class design will provide the Confederate Navy with the cutting-edge technology needed for defence in today’s uncertain world, as well as tomorrow's”, said a spokesperson from DSME.

Construction of the new warship, to be christened as the CCS Martillo de Dios, is expected to begin towards the end of this year, with the vessel being expected to enter service in 2025. Though not the first warship to be purchased by the Confederation from Chilokver, with an as yet unnamed Fale-class corvette having been ordered in November of 2018, they Martillo de Dios will be the first to constructed in partnership with a non-Chilokveri shipyard. Approximately 40% of the combat systems integration work will be carried out by Raleigh Armor Workshops, who have also been subcontracted to complete a portion of the fitting out. The partnership is expected to create around 1,500 new jobs for West Adriatica.

Once completed, the Martillo de Dios will replace the CCS Eatdun, a mid 20th century heavy cruiser modernised as a missile cruiser, as the Confederate Navy’s flagship.

In comparison to its predecessor, the new flagship will require a mere 300 crew to operate, under a fifth of the Eatdun’s personnel requirements, while possessing combat capabilities far beyond those of the Eatdun’s. Though the exact specifications and equipment for the modified design are not known, the Jiafen class the Martillo de Dios is based on is able to track up to 1,000 airborne targets at a range of up to 400 km simultaneously, and also possesses theatre ballistic missile defence (BMD) capabilities, making it ideally suited for the air defence of a fleet. To complement these potent air warfare capabilities, the Martillo de Dios will also carry an impressive 96 vertical launch cells (VLS), 8 anti-ship missile launchers, and the facilities for two medium helicopters, giving it true multirole capabilities and the versatility to perform either anti-air, anti-surface, or anti-submarine operations with equal ease.

As one of the most advanced warships entering service, and with its capacity to evolve the meet the challenges of future battlefields, the Martillo de Dios will likely serve as the centrepiece of the Confederate Navy’s combat fleet for the next 30 years or more.
