China will display the JY-26 phased array radar designed to detect and track stealth aircraft at the upcoming Zhuhai Airshow 2014, Global Times reported today.
The JY-26 features small cylindrical columns and will be primarily used for remote air surveillance missions. The newly designed VHF/UHF radar has a detection distance of 500 kilometers and high accuracy capabilities, earning comparisons to the KJ-2000 Chinese Airborne Early Warning and Control system (AEWACS).

The Nanjing Institute claims that JY-26 has successfully tracked an F-22 fighter in South Korean air space in east China's Shandong province during testing.
