The Mounties may have been our first official military, but they haven't been for a long time.  Today they are a corrupt federal organisation.  As a police force, only the Ontario Provincial Police, and maybe some municipal Quebec police forces, are more corrupt.

As for China's anti-satellite satellite... kind of obsolete, in some ways.  With all our fibre-optic cables and drones we use today, satellites are not the wave of the future.

Yeah, who uses GPS anyway?

And what do you think those drones use as a link to the operator? A balloon with a transmitter hanging underneath?

you heard the man they have fiber optic cables hanging underneath. you jsut need a big ass spool of cable mounted under the drone and your good to go. I doubt the Taliban or the Chinese have mastered complicated air to air cable snipping operations yet.

Yes. It's called a retransmission node.

No they don't use fiber optic cables but you might want to look at some of the new technologies that apply to antennae design - light and small enough enough to enable broadband communication at range on a UAV at low latency- a network of those that self-arranges gives you an adaptive, scalable and resilient system. Those can relay a message from a ground station or simply reach far enough out beyond the enemy's jamming envelope to connect to orbital assets.
