While I accept your ideas may I just ask one question? What is easier to disable? a drone or a satellite? Your response would be something like this:
drones can be taken out easier but they can launch more. satellites can maneuver very quickly in space when there is nothing stopping them such as
gravity or air. U.S. Govt. satellites are equipped with many other defense mechanisms that divert heat guided arms as well as EMP shots that can
disable any piece of equipment you can send at them as well as the Govt. techies that can hack into anything and relieve the controller of the
armament of that control.
Also may i request one more time that if you do not have information that can assist me in my searches please refrain from posting I am not here to
argue the existence of this satellite because i know beyond a reasonable doubt it is there. please respect my wishes and the goal of this

Actually, if a drone is "Taken Out", such action immediately compromises any OPSEC an intruder might hope to exploit through stealth.
Taking out a cheap drone would only draw attention; getting whoever killed the drone killed in the process thereby failing their entire reason for
wanting to be there unseen/undetected.
Drones are cheap and expendable.
Satellites are not.
Besides that, this is an open, public forum where all views, insights, criticisms and debates on a topic, so long as they are on topic are welcome.
While a satellite may very well be in geo-sync over A51, it's doubtful it's there for anything you might think or suspect it is there for.
It could very well be there to disable/jam communications to/from other satellites passing over the area so as to ensure control of what gets seen by
anyone else. with satellites doing fly-overs.
It'd make much more operational sense to have such a Hawk in the sky to keep other eyes from seeing things that are not wanted to be seen.
Ground-based security is more than capable of covering all ground-based security from the ground with conventional non-space-based methods.
