    Wang Yanyong, technical director for Beijing A-Star Science and Technology, confirms that two systems – the EOTS-89 electro-optical targeting system (EOTS) and the EORD-31 infrared search and track (IRST) – are in development for China’s J-20 and J-31 fighters.

    Marketing brochures on A-Star’s booth suggest that the J-20 could use the passive sensors to detect and aim missiles at the Northrop Grumman B-2 bomber and Lockheed Martin F-22 fighter, even while its radar is being being jammed by a Boeing EA-18G Growler. It list detection ranges for the B-2 at 150km and for the F-22 at up to 110km.

    Both systems have completed ground testing in a laboratory, and are now ready to enter flight testing, he says. Chinese combat aircraft manufacturer AVIC is considering integrating the sensors on a testbed aircraft, then could decide to test them on the J-20 and J-31, he says. Operational status is at least a year away for both sensors and possible longer, Yanyong adds.

    A-Star exhibited the systems at MAKS in hopes of attracting buyers from Russian and Commonwealth of Independent States countries, he says.

    that number is low its much higher than that. its to make its adversaries less of a reason to worry. 150km is used as they missiles have a range of approximately 150km, so they say. the pl-12d has a range of 200km+
