China has improved its quantum radar
Once installed on a near-space vehicle, the new quantum radar could effectively monitor high-speed flying objects in the upper atmosphere and above. This means it can track ballistic missiles and rockets in space. Xia Linghao, from CETC’s 14th Research Institute and one of the lead scientists on the radar project, says that the bulk of the theoretical work had been completed and that the company had entered the experimental verification phase. The radar is based on single photon measurement technology, which measures the quantum states of subatomic particles repeatedly. Quantum radar systems generate pairs of entangled light particles known as photons.

The picture shows a phase array radar......

The photo looks like a simple dipole element phased-array radar, not a quantum radar.

They sell these at harbor freight salvage. 28.95 plus tax. Comes with a spare bucket of bolts and instructions in 43 different languages to assemble it. The US has nothing to worry about.

China appears to be significantly ahead of the west when it comes to quantum tech. But they shouldn't forget that those western spies and hackers, particularly from US, are also desperately trying to steal the Chinese advancement. Its also very likely that China is using quantum tech to protect their advancement, if not why the west are so far behind??

Meaning your so called stealth bombers are detectable, tracked and auto engaged by future drones via largest satellite network in the world.

I believe the Chinese media just claims this to be a massive 2D phase array radar meant to defeat the stealth technology. Quantum radar is a different subject. The picture shown here is the anti-stealth "low-frequency" massive phase array radar, not the "crazy-pure-theoretical" quantum radar. In the real battle field, the quantum technology is not there yet. Likewise, the so-called quantum communication is also a misnomer. It is just a way of ensuring the integrity of the encryption key, not communicating the payload itself. I wish the scientists/engineers working in this area can help correct the various misnomers spread by the media who tend to be quite "tech-ignorant".

They are working on using Quantum Entanglement for internet encryption, missile defense, non lethal weapons, mind control on populations and for marketing purposes to give people a commercial message during a wet dream. My understanding is that the US is not too far behind.

Word is: Chinese troops would surrender in minutes. There is no "collective" ideal to defend now. They just see co ption and privilege (with auth rian rule). Nothing to feel pride in. It will be a short war.

The US has likely already discovered either A) a different spectrum of stealth materials that cannot be detected again and will give us an edge for quite some time B) New methods of flight that won't require stealth. Remember our SR-71 Blackbird designed many decades ago? Imagine a fighter/bomber of such speed.
美国很可能已经发现了：A)一种不同频谱的隐形材料，这种材料再也无法被探测到，而且在相当长的一段时间内让我们保持优势；或者B) 不需要隐性技术的新型战斗机。还记得我们几十年前设计的SR-71黑鸟吗? 想象一下如果战斗机/轰炸机达到这种速度会怎样。

The US already has this as does Canada, Its nothing new. China is as always behind the times using copied tech from us

If the Chinese radar system is so good they should be able to see that their J20 supposed "stealth fighter" is no stealth fighter at all!

China spend energy spying (copying) rather do R&D. If I am China, I would do exactly the same, no different.
China is going to be picking up some VERY strange readings with this thing...things that the US go nment hasn't even discussed since Blue Book.
