What exactly is Space Electromagnetic Warfare?


I have a friend who does this for a living and I’m genuinely curious about what exactly they do. If someone could break down to me like a toddler I’d appreciate it.

There are machines in space, like communication satellites. Some parties have developed EW capabilities that might be used against these machines, for example jamming the communication satellite so that it can’t be used for satellite communications.

This isn’t nice, and people will be mad about it if you do it. It’s also likely that you’ll get caught, or at least your transmitter will be located.
