Given the PLAAF markings on the design in the picture, this design could be the Beriev A-50I that would have featured the nose-mounted Israeli-made Phalcon radar, but had to be cancelled in June 2000 due to US pressure, given that the radome fitted to the plane in the picture is the same as the Phalcon radar fitted to a Boeing 707 in use by the Chilean Air Force.

Simply reading the article, for which a link is provided, confirms this is the GEC-Argus 2000 system that was in competition with the IAI solution you mentioned.
