Three large radars made by China Electronics Technology Group Corp were on display at the 11th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, which closed on Sunday in Zhuhai, Guangdong province. The State-owned defense giant has developed almost all of the radars used by the People’s Liberation Army.

The YLC-8B designed by the Chinese company’s Nanjing Research Institute of Electronic Technology, integrate the traditional detection method of mechanical scanning with advanced phased array technology, so is capable of detecting aerial targets including stealth aircraft, the institute said.

Senior Colonel Li, a military equipment expert at the PLA National Defense University, said detecting stealth planes requires highly sophisticated technology and that Chinese institutes have been devising radar based approaches.

Gao Zhuo, a military observer in Shanghai, said China has become a leader in anti-stealth radar, with many capabilities of its radars regarded the best in the world.

In addition to the current models, the Nanjing Research Institute of Electronic Technology is also developing a cutting-edge radar that adopts quantum technology, according to a report by an online PLA publication.

A quantum-based radar can be mounted on ground vehicles and aircraft to detect stealth planes from long distances, the report said, adding that only the US and China are researching such technology.
