Japan's military says pilot disorientation likely cause of F-35 crash in April

Japan's military says pilot disorientation likely cause of F-35 crash in April Japan's air force on Monday said spatial disorientation likely caused one of its pilots to fly his F-35 stealth fighters into the Pacific Ocean in April, hitting the water at more than 1,100 kph (683 mph). The Lockheed Martin Corp jet disappeared from radar screens during an exercise with three other F-35s over the ocean near northwest Japan on April 9. The 41-year-old pilot was killed. "It seems highly likely that the pilot was suffering from vertigo and was unaware of his condition," the Japan Air Self Defense Force (JASDF) said in a press release.

Could quantum radars make US fifth generation stealth fighters obsolete? The field test had opened a "completely new area of research", it said , with potential for the development of highly mobile and sensitive radar systems able to survive the most challenging combat engagements.

China has reportedly developed an over-the-horizon maritime early warning radar system that its creator claims can detect stealth aircraft far beyond visual range, an advanced capability that could threaten US fifth-generation fighters operating in the area.

Liu Yongtan, the team leader for the radar project, told Chinese media that his high-frequency surface wave radar emits "high frequency electromagnetic waves with long wavelengths and wide beams" that travel along the service of the sea, the Global Times reported Monday, citing a recent interview with Naval and Merchant Ships magazine.

Japan ends search for crashed F35 fighter jet

Japan ends search for crashed F35 fighter jet Japan called off its search for an F-35A on Tuesday, almost two months after the stealth jet crashed into the sea sparking a scramble to recover the pilot and secrets onboard. 

As revealed in 2014, Chinese industry have developed a number of radars claiming stealth detection capabilities. The latest entry is the The capability of the new radar is becoming a critical asset for Beijing, as in the next decade more air forces in Asia Pacific will be equipped with stealth capabilities

A defence firm has unveiled a prototype quantum radar . If it works, it could use entangled protons to locate stealth aircraft that normally avoid detection. Stealth aircraft avoid detection by redirecting most of a radar system ’s radio waves, which usually reflect off their surface and reveal their location.

The radar system, part of China's ongoing efforts to prevent a sneak attack by enemy stealth assets, can purportedly detect enemy air and naval threats hundreds of kilometers away in any weather condition.

The 83-year-old creator says the radar is also "immune" to anti-radiation missiles, which track the point of origin for electromagnetic waves.

Liu's radar system, which won him the country's highest scientific award, has been named China's "first line of defense."

Does it actually work?

Western experts argue that this type of radar, which is not new technology, offers the defending country a chance against incoming stealth assets, but there are limitations that prevent it from being the death of a fifth-generation fighter like the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

High-flying ladybug swarm shows up on National Weather Service radar

High-flying ladybug swarm shows up on National Weather Service radar At first glance, it looks like a rain cloud. But in reality, the massive blob showing up Tuesday evening on the National Weather Service’s radar in San Diego County was just a lot of ladybugs. Joe Dandrea, a meteorologist with NWS San Diego, said from the radar, the ladybug bloom appears to be about 80 miles by 80 miles, but the ladybugs aren’t in a concentrated mass that size. Rather, they’re spread throughout the sky, flying at between 5,000 and 9,000 feet, with the most concentrated mass about 10 miles wide.

"Because of its very long wavelengths, it can detect objects like stealthy aircraft," Todd Harrison, an aerospace expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies told Business Insider, explaining that stealthy aircraft are designed to be less detectable to shortwave radar.

Major drawbacks, however, include the low resolution and lack of a real-time target-grade track. "It will tell you there's something there, but you can't characterize it," Harrison explained, adding that the radar "can't get a precise enough fix on a position to target it."

Justin Bronk, an air combat expert at the Royal United Services Institute told Business Insider that "China might be better informed about where American stealth fighters are operating in the battle space, but still unable to use those radar systems to cue in missiles to actually kill them."

State -of-the-art counter- stealth systems use multiphase radars and microwaves to "localize the area of a stealth aircraft but not track it ," said Indeed, Beijing has reportedly even come close to cracking an engineering problem that could render traditional stealth aircraft irrelevant — quantum radar .

Stealth aircraft are designed to avoid detection using a variety of technologies that reduce reflection/emission of radar , infrared, visible light, radio frequency (RF) spectrum, and audio

But, the over-the-horizon radar does have the ability to cue other types of radar systems to narrow their field of view and concentrate their radar energy on the position where an object was detected. "You have a better chance of finding it" with the over-the-horizon radar, Harrison explained.

Another big problem with the powerful Chinese radar, though, is that it is vulnerable to attack, meaning they might only be useful in the early stages of a fight.

While they may be immune to counter-radar anti-radiation missiles, these systems are large, can be easily seen from space, and could be targeted with a GPS-guided missile. "It will help you in the initial stages of conflict, but the US will probably put a missile on the antenna sites and take it out of commission pretty quickly," Harrison said.

China's new radar system is not perfect, but it does provide early warning capabilities that could alert the country to the presence of incoming stealth assets, strengthening its defenses and potentially giving it a shot.
