Quantum radar is a remote-sensing method based on quantum entanglement.

 

The state-owned Chinese company responsible for developing high-end electronics has claimed that the next version of its quantum radar will be even more powerful than previously thought.

In 2016, China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) announced that it had tested a quantum radar with a range of around 62 miles, or 100 kilometers – roughly five times further than the range of its US and German competitors, Popular Science reported. The next generation of the radar will be capable of tracking ballistic missiles in outer space and aircraft flying at extremely high altitudes, the South China Morning Post reported Friday.

By mounting a quantum radar onto a near-space vehicle, China’s air force could “effectively monitor high-speed flying objects in the upper atmosphere and above,” CETC said at an industry exhibition in Nanjing, SCMP added. Continue reading

China says it has stealth-defeating quantum radar

A Chinese firm has reportedly developed and tested a radar system that uses quantum entanglement to beat the stealth technology of modern military craft, state media said.

The first Chinese quantum radar was developed by the Intelligent Perception Technology Laboratory of the 14th Institute in CETC, according to Xinhua news agency. CETC stands for Electronics Technology Group Corporation, a defense and electronics firm. Continue reading
