Sir Jeremy Fleming, the director of GCHQ, will warn that Beijing is believed to be building a powerful anti-satellite capability that will rival GPS and deny other countries access to space if there is a war. There are fears the BeiDou satellite system, which China wants to export to the world, could also be used to track individuals, Fleming will say in a speech at the Royal United Services Institute Annual Security Lecture in London.
