"The first line in the sand for the next major conflict may very well be in space or cyberspace, but probably not on the ground or in the air or in the seas," Dupuis said in an interview while attending the annual conference of the Canadian Space Society.
There will "absolutely" be more of a military role for Canada in space than in the past, Col. Andre Dupuis said on Saturday as he discussed the defence department's plans to overhaul its space defence policy."
Dupuis says the satellite destruction by the Chinese was a clear indication the Chinese are planning ways to conduct operations in space.
"Not space warfare, but operations in space to deny the advantage frankly to the West," he said.
"For the public at large, space is out of sight and out of mind," he told the conference. "The public's idea is Hollywood ...that's by and large their notion of space."
For example, satellite data is useful when it comes to keeping an eye on large projects like pipelines, oil sands and the off-shore, Bancroft said.
