Russia tests 'satellite catcher' (BBC), but, as the article points out, the US and China have already tested similar satellites this year: satellites or parts of satellites that can track and pursue other satellites. One obvious use for this is disabling "enemy" satellites, but it can also be used to retrieve errant satellites. These satellites appear to use their own AI routines rather than guidance from the ground for their close shadowing techniques.
