Develop radar for detecting photons enemy aircraft

A group of researchers from the University of Rochester has announced the development of the first photon radar . Based on it would be a foolproof system for the army to detecting aircraft.

The radars have long been the most effective way to detect enemy aircraft. A method that eventually found too many forms of deception. The most common of these is the use of airplanes with sophisticated detection equipment anti-radar systems.

A team that can intercept signal sending back a false image like the one shown in the picture. Now, with the system proposed by scientists, radar “quantum” could frustrate the use of anti-system technologies.

This is a technology that uses polarized photons to detect objects on radar, ie based on the quantum properties of that define that any attempt to measure a photon destroys its quantum properties.

Thus, if an enemy tries to intercept the photons to send an erroneous or false, radar photon quantum discovered that has been modified. According to Mehul Malik, principal investigator:

To enter our system, the object will have to upset the delicate state of the photons, causing errors and reveal their activity.

As scientists have, the project is well underway and already made the first tests photons bouncing against a plane shaped object to measure the polarization error in turn signals. One method that is expected to implement in the United States Army.
