Re: Airborne Early Warning & Control: News & Discussion

If embraer is too difficult to acquire get g650 instead, that was the whole point of the analysis, that there are other options available which can help tide us over and might be better than the ej145.

Re: Airborne Early Warning & Control: News & Discussion

It isn't so much 360 vs. 240, but a larger airframe allows for a larger antenna, more power, scanning across more wavelengths, better resolution and clutter suppression. The IAF needs at least 8 full blown AWACS. Right now it has 3 Phalcons and is awaiting 2 more. With limited resources this is a d...

How do I know? That is for the operator community to determine depending upon what performance they want a specific system to have.

Re: Airborne Early Warning & Control: News & Discussion

I think i like the original idea of G650. You can also stick varying antenna's on each of them if you like, X/L/S for different roles, or do S/L band in one array if possible at all :?: . If the hawkeye can power a UHF antenna for serious purposes, we should be able to as well on the G650. For track...

More interesting would be to look into they are managing more capable and power hungry systems on even smaller aircraft with the JSTARS-recap (which is apparently now a US Army program).

I see nothing wrong with a podded solution, you will lose some efficiency, but it's no different than carrying a weapon system. The wing on the p8 is far more reinforced than the wedgetail.

I don't think the widebody will ever come. Going with P8 allows hanging some RATs off the wing (reinforced) which won't be possible with the 737-700ER. 2-4 HiRAT along with dual generators per engine will allow getting it to over 1-1.4 MW. Can you add more than two generators per engine? Your above ...

The smaller 737 already has an integrated tophat L band AESA so of course the larger platform can accommodate a different sensor configuration. The current AESA on the E-7 is about 60% of what was to eventually go on a USAF 767 (long terminated) so perhaps a configuration in between the two can go ...

Re: Airborne Early Warning & Control: News & Discussion

The most I have found is 4 engines of the 707 awacs producing about 1 MW - 250 kW per engine. The smaller G650 engines can produce about 240kW and a large twin-engine (A32X/A33X) plane can produce up to 500 kW quite easily. We will just have to have better onboard processing hardware to discriminate...

None of that make it out of reach of SAMs or AAMs. A plane capable of of doing 2G turns is mince meat for AAM. The only protection is the protection suite which would be the same on either platforms. In my opinion, ceiling matters quite a bit for reducing the risk of SAM hits. AAM is a different ma...
