The anti-satellite (ASAT) test, Mission Shakti, conducted last week is a "deterrence capability" and the missile can cover all satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Dr. Satheesh Reddy, Chairman of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), said on Saturday.
"400 pieces of orbital debris from the test have been identified, including debris that was traveling above the International Space Station which is a bad, awful thing", Reuters quoted NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine as saying Monday.
The letter comes days after NASA chief Bridenstine in a town hall meeting criticised India's anti-satellite missile (ASAT) test because of the debris is generated in the space and its potential threat to the International Space Station.
On the issue of weaponisation of space, the DRDO chief said it is a decision the government has to take.
"We have no option but to clear space debris from Low Earth Orbit", says ClearSpace CEO Luc Piguet in a statement published by EPFL on Friday. India has the capacity to hit target up to 1000 km and the test was intentionally held at a lower height. All critical technologies for the test were developed indigenously and about 90% of the entire test in indigenous, Dr. Reddy added. The satellite is tracked by many stations across the world and all the necessary permissions were taken to carry out the test, he added. "Space debris is composed of satellites, parts of launch vehicles, etc".
On March 27, India shot down one of its satellites in space with an ASAT missile, which made it only the fourth country after the US, Russia and China to have used such a weapon.
On March 30, Chidambaram slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for announcing that India had demonstrated anti-satellite missile capability, saying only a "foolish government" would make such a disclosure and "betray" a defence secret.
Nearly all the technologies used for the ASAT test were indigenously developed with some 50 industries contributing components for the 13 metre missiles weighing 19 tonnes.
