In a bid to dominate Asia and the western Pacific, China provokes a military crisis with the United States and then starts shooting down GPS satellites. America has only a short amount of time to devise some way of protecting its remaining satellites or China will gain an enormous advantage in the coming conflict. The only way the satellites can be protected is from orbit, so an armed spacecraft must be quickly designed, built, and launched to fight on this new battlefield.

Very enjoyable book because it not the usual type of war & plausible politics.
Chinese shooting down United States military GPS satellites to degrade recon & global war machine.
Navy & Air Force forced to work together by president after inter-service spat to be project leader.
Logistics & finding needed personal from other heel dragging projects (beltway bandits to academics) on classic Skunk Work project fun to read. Ditto on the fallout the subcontractors on attempts to pad the bills, counterintelligence on Chinese saboteur to brief cyberwar second sideshow front while space craft prepared orbital bombing.
