A Chinese firm has claimed that they have developed radar technology that can detect stealth jets.
The quantum radar was reportedly created by Intelligent Perception Technology, a branch of defence and electronics firm CETC.
They claim it is capable of detecting a target at a range of 60 miles and according to the Xinhua news agency, it was successfully tested last month.

It is believed the radar uses quantum entanglement photons, which means it has better detection capabilities than conventional systems.
This means it can more easily track modern aircraft that use stealth technology or baffle enemy radar.
The new technology also comes after China launched the world's first quantum communications satellite, which uses quantum entanglement to solve codes.
Claims of the new radar technology comes after China announced it is considering building a manned radar station on the moon.

The facility could include living quarters for astronauts and a powerful radar antenna, stretching at least 164 feet (50 metres) high.
Professor Zhou Yiguo, a radar technology researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Electronics, said the distance between the moon and Earth would cause enormous technological challenges.
The government project was launched earlier this year and a group of scientists received kick-start funding of 16 million yuan (£1.8 million/$2.4 million) from the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
