China’s First Quantum Radar Able to Detect Stealth Fighter Far AwayPosted: September 15, 2016
The 14th Research Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation has developed China’s first quantum radar system based on single-quantum detection.
The Institute has joined force with the University of Science and Technology of China, the 27th Research Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation, Nanjing University and other entities in the research and development of the radar.
Tests have proved that the radar can detect stealth fighter jets hundreds of km away in real atmosphere environment. As the radar consumes less energy, needs light platform to install, and is reliable and confidential in complicated electromagnetic environment, it has overcome traditional radar’s inability to detect targets of low visibility or survive in electronic warfare and significant loading requirement for its platform.
Sources say that the institute regards the success in making China’s first quantum radar as only the beginning that has laid foundation for the design, research, development and testing of further better microwave quantum radar.
