The Department of Promising Studies (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense signed an agreement with Slingshot Aerospace, which announced that it has developed artificial intelligence capable of detecting satellites.

This was reported by the Defense One portal, citing the company's director of information security and artificial intelligence, Dylan Casler. According to Casler, the system, which he calls “Agatha,” is capable of detecting among the large number of satellites that are used for military purposes, including reconnaissance purposes, based on an analysis of their path.

Casler said that this technology helped him identify the Russian Loach satellite, which, as he claims, approached the Intelsat satellite in 2015 to capture information.

He added that the Pentagon is concerned about the increase in the collection of satellites belonging to Russia and China, as some of them could carry military equipment. The American expert assumed that the Pentagon would need more advanced artificial intelligence models in order to detect them.

It is noteworthy that on May 22, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov refuted an announcement made by the Pentagon claiming that Russia had launched into Earth orbit a space device capable of carrying an anti-satellite weapon. Earlier, Peskov pointed out that Moscow had taken the initiative more than once to impose a ban on deploying any weapons in space, but the West refused every time to accept those proposals.
