Scientists Devise Quantum-Based Radar System Which Can’t Be Jammed

Scientists Devise Quantum-Based Radar System Which Can’t Be Jammed

Modern-day detection of enemy planes in the air is heavily reliant on the use of radars. Radars send out a signal which hits an enemy plane within its range and is reflected back, alerting the system of its presence. However, conventional radars can be jammed and so, scientists have now come up with a better alternative.
