China’s Mystic Radar Special for Detecting Stealth Fighter Jets, DronesPosted: October 2, 2014
In Chapter 12 “Better AEW&C, Radar, Etc. than the U.S.” of my new book Space Era Strategy: The Way China Beats The U.S., there is description of China’s three new radars that are capable of detecting stealth aircrafts: JY-50 Passive Radar for Detecting and Tracking Stealth Aircrafts, JYL-1A Radar to Detect and Track with High Precision Stealth Aircrafts and Tactical Ballistic Missiles and JY-27A Air Surveillance & Guidance Radar to Detect, Track Stealth Aircrafts and Missiles.
As the description is quite long, I do not provide excerpts here.
According to Voice of Russia’s report on Sep. 30, in addition to JY-27A, China has developed DWL-002 passive radar for detecting and tracking stealth fighter jets and drones. China’s official media has proved that and said that such radar has been deployed in quite a few areas.
The report says that old-typed meter-wave radar can detect stealth aircrafts but the radar is too big and lacks accuracy. China has copied the technology from a sample meter-wave radar it imported from Ukraine and some information of design from Ukraine to improve meter-wave radar. Through years of efforts, China has finally succeeded in making JY-27A and DWL-002 radars with modern algorism and high mobility.
