The World Radar Expo 2021, China's national radar industry expo to be held this week, will feature the country's cutting-edge radar technologies including a newly developed portable anti-stealth radar and multiple sets of large early warning radars, which will give the world a glimpse into China's significant achievements in radar equipment, the organizers revealed.

Jointly hosted by the China Radar Industry Association, the China Electronics Technology Group Co Ltd (CETC) and the China Electronics Information Industry Group Co Ltd (CEC), the ninth World Radar Expo will be held in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu Province from Thursday to Saturday.

With more than 400 companies from the radar and electronics industry participating, the scale of this year's expo will be larger than all previous editions.

As one of the major exhibiting companies, CETC will showcase a series of cutting-edge radar technologies, including a new type of highly mobile anti-stealth radar designed to detect low altitude, slow speed and small targets with the longest range in the world. Another impressive piece of equipment is the KLJ-7A airborne active electronic scann array radar, the Global Times learned.

Both CETC and CEC will display multiple types of large early warning radars in a move analysts said will allow the world to get a glimpse into China's significant achievements in radar equipment.

As part of the expo, the first global summit with the theme of "Radar and the Future" will host China's top radar experts, including China's top science award recipients, Wang Xiaomo and Liu Yongtan, who will give talks on their vision of the development of radar technologies.

More than 50 international guests from over 30 countries along the Belt and Road Initiative will participate in the expo, according to the organizers.
