Re: India's missile defence - Arrow vs. S-300

Americans got 90 % of technical loot and Russian 10 % .Also the scientists invariably preferred to surrender to the Americans than the Russians as they regarded communism to be a dangerous ideology plus better pay packets and freedom etc. Thus 90 % of Amerian space tech is german tech.Whereas 90 % o...

Re: India's missile defence - Arrow vs. S-300

If tech to detect rocket plumes from 36,000 km exists in this country i dont see whats preventing us from deploying it.One single satellite will do the job.You mean to say we cannot launch one single satellite ? Plus if detection is possible only from 12,000 km we still need 12 of them to keep an ey...

Re: India's missile defence - Arrow vs. S-300

We will need 12 satellites with IR detection capabilities in an 12,000 km high orbit to detect launches anywhere in the world.It is not clear to me if we possess the tech for detecting a rocket launch from 36,000 km GSO.But we have the means to orbit any kind of satellite now , all we need to do is ...

Re: Israeli participation in Indian Defence (Industry)

Its not clear why they are asking for tech - transfer.PTA is not beyond the means of Israeli industry.The only reason for import must be it may actually turn out cheaper than making it at home.TOT implies they are going to make it at home , and they may as well make their own version.
