China Creates Anti-Stealth Radar

Anti-Stealth Radar is so tiny it can be installed anywhere, even on rooftops. Anti-stealth radars usually need a large antenna to pick up the faint signature of a stealth aircraft, which can absorb or deflect the waves emitted by the radar, compromising the radar’s mobility and making it vulnerable to attack. ” Although the antenna […]

Anti-Stealth Radar is so tiny it can be installed anywhere, even on rooftops. Anti-stealth radars usually need a large antenna to pick up the faint signature of a stealth aircraft, which can absorb or deflect the waves emitted by the radar, compromising the radar’s mobility and making it vulnerable to attack.

” Although the antenna aperture can be expanded to improve the radar’s detection accuracy, this will reduce the platform’s mobility and resilience‚ÄĚ, said Professor Yang Minglei of the National Laboratory of Radar Signal Processing at Xidian University in an article published in the domestic peer-reviewed journal Modern Radar on August 11. Yang and his team have developed a metric-wave radar that is similar in size and looks like clothes drying rack, SCMP reported. Researchers say the device is mobile and has demonstrated excellent performance in terms of detection accuracy during several tests conducted on the roof of a university campus building.

Research in anti-stealth radar technology caught on in China, especially after an American B2 stealth bomber accidentally attacked the Chinese embassy in Belgrade during the 1999 NATO air war over Yugoslavia.

Currently, China has a multi-layered air defense system with anti-stealth radar stations, especially along the eastern Pacific Ocean and the coast of the South China Sea.

China has a military base on this cliff with a VHF radar array, described by Chinese scientists as a synthetic pulse, and a radar aperture radar (SIAR) located at the southern end of the base as of 2020. The radar operates in the 30-300 MHz frequency band and consists of three concentric rings of antenna elements.
