 Japans Cosmos team said it intended to build jamming capability

According to Japans Yomiuri Shimbun on May 19, Defense Minister Taro Kono attended the flag awarding ceremony on the same day, and said: the security environment has deteriorated. It is important to ensure an advantageous position in new areas led by space, besides land, sea and air.

According to Japanese media, the size of the Cosmos team at the beginning of its formation is about 20, and it is expected to increase to 100 by 2023. At present, the main work is to promote the establishment of the education, training and supervision mechanism of the team members. The ground radar in XIAOYETIAN, Shanyang, Shankou county is under construction and is expected to be put into use in 2023.

For the first time in this years budget, the cost of equipped satellites for space condition monitoring is included, with the goal of launching in 2026. Relevant work will be carried out in cooperation with the aerospace research and development agency.

Reported that in outer space, the number of space junk caused by the old satellite and satellite destruction experiments has increased dramatically. Even a few centimetres of space junk, once contacted with a satellite, may cause damage to its function. Cosmonaut team will maintain normal surveillance of space, including suspicious movements of satellites from other countries. Many countries are trying to strengthen the military use of space.

In the outline of defense plan formulated by the Japanese government in 2018, it is stated that to build the ability to interfere with enemy command and control, information and communication in the space field, the Japanese government intends to conduct research on the ability to interfere.

The flag of Japans Cosmos team was displayed at the founding ceremony. (official website of the Ministry of Defense)
