China’s heat-seeking radar with 300km range boosts anti-stealth tech, say defence scientists

  • Engineers say their small infrared search-and-track system can pick up the heat signature of a fast-moving aircraft from an unusually long distance
  • In distant target-searching mode, the radar can scan the entire sky in just a few seconds, faster than most existing heat seekers, the team says
