China Claims It Developed “Quantum” Radar To See Stealth Planes
Beijing’s state media has made the bold claim that a Chinese defense contractor successfully developed the world’s first quantum radar system. The radar can allegedly detect objects at range of up to 62 miles. If true, this would greatly diminish the value of so-called “stealth” aircraft, including the B-2 and F-22 Raptor fighter.
According to Global Times, the 14th Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) developed the radar system last month. The subdivision websitedescribes the “14th Institute” as “the birthplace of Radar industry (sic) in China”, employing 9,000 workers on a 2,000-acre research campus.
