Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

Great to find out issues on Tejas, this is what is needed to make the system robust and battleworthy. Most A/Cs would not have survived this intensity on their first outing. Also a testimony to the ground crew that knows how to keep the machines fighting fit under pressure

Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

So 11 LCA and 3 sorties per day for 3 days = 11×3×3 = 99 sorties for LCA only Sir its only SP1-8, SP9 is yet to be accepted by the squadron(or that is what was the last we heard) So 8 *3 *3 = 72 sorties that still makes it a big number. BTW, this would be a great exercise for the squadron ground cr...

One other aspect on maintenance that might consume additional time when it comes to Tejas is the caution the Ground staff is subjecting itself to. In the sense that they are probably being conservative and checking everything in the checklist before clearing the aircraft. This is progressively going...

SIngha sir the airframe could have a thin wrap of active shielding material(ala faraday cages). This FBWi would be for all sensors actuators within the airframe I.e., we are creating a small femto cell network. External RF comms should be unaffected.

What if someone guarantees lag and against jamming ? One thing possibly is that the radios inside the airframe need to operate at -60c and possibly at 80c this Tamb leads to Tjunc numbers that have not been achieved with CMOS till date, is that the reason ?

I have a slightly different take on this, we are always counting the defence budget as a %age of GDP. While this metric is invariant shouldnt we then be considering the fact that our GDP unlike other nation is on a 7% growth trajectory i.e., GDP for 2015 was 2.08tn, 2016 was 2.26tn and 2017 is proje...

Guru Jan- now with SP8 poised to join, we will soon be running into a problem of lack of pilots. This is compounded by the fact that we have only two trainers and no additional trainer is lined up for production. My concern is that we need at least 20 pilots and squadron 45 may not have those number...
