Tejas exits Bengaluru, new nest in TN’s Sulur https://www.deccanchronicle.com/nation/current-affairs/010618/tejas-exits-bengaluru-new-nest-in-tns-sulur.html

Such a lungi dance time, only slightly spoiled by the very strange looking Tejas pic at the top of the article :lol:

Thanks pravula for posting the article about different IR sensors.

What I know is LWIR also can penetrate the atmosphere and can be detected by satellites. Especially Missile launches.


OT .. the GEO based LWIR space sensors ( the american SBIRS or the chinese equivalent already deployed) seem to have excellent target acquisition capabilities
so way to go ..scale it up !

DRDO Chief on Tejas

Another important point is that what has brought out is extremely good in Light Combat Aircraft. This is extremely important. It is of course an excellent plane because it is an unstably stable aircraft. It runs by the mission controller though the pilot is giving the control because it is such an unstable system. You give it one degree tilt, and within 200 millisecond it can go up to about 32 degrees. That is the swiftness the speed with which it is going to react. Consequently, what you need to do is you have to have a proper mechanism to do that so we have today in the LCA automatic takeoff and landing. Automatic take off is very much there. Flying safely is there today in the case of naval version of the LCA. All this like ski-jumping, flying the level version. It is all being done automatically and flying in level safely has been done automatically. But then for landing the last bit is some more pseudo lights and other things have to be put. We need to manage and see that it is lands properly. That is the only case that is pending. Even then there is a smaller vehicle we are making, that is the SWIFT in the Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) in Bangalore. By this time next year we will have a SWIFT landing also

NDTV: What is the capability of SWIFT?

Dr Christopher: We don't have any capability other than proving the platform itself. We will use one of the engines of none other than the nearby Nirbhay, and we will simply fly for proving the vehicle that it can take-off and land. We will not have more than 5 kg or 10 kg capability. That is not meant for any payload being dropped. It is mainly for proving the aircraft and when that is over, the full blown AMCA is getting ready that will use the dry Kaveri engine. But that's a bigger fellow. You want to start with the small and then go to the bigger. That Kaveri engine is available for that purpose whereas for the drone you are denied. For engine, we do have a Kaveri substitute though the power requirement is 52 kilotons, which is possible from Kaveri as against what is required about 80 kilotons.

OT here, but correction, it should be UCAV not AMCA. SWIFT is TD for UCAV. And it must not be just for demonstrating TO/Landing. I don't know its its DDM writing crap. SWIFT is TD for flying wing like stealth concept. The basic flight mechanics will be studies and demonstrated through it.

I think something which uses both Medium and Long wave infrared bands.



Multispectral detectors are a good idea.
Deep infra red can penetrate fog, smoke etc unlike shorter wavelengths IR.
Swedish have paired their aircraft / missile warning detectors with AI to make them detect incoming threats much more effectively than conventional sensor controls means.
DRDO needs to get cracking on designing a compact sensor of this type for MK2 and possibly other aircraft.
Run of the mill IRST stuff won't do.
Integrate it directly on the aircraft itself for 360 degree coverage on the AMCA as is the case on F-35 JSF.

Start working on the internal weapons package and other intel payloads for the AMCA now.
It will clealy be quite different in form from existing planes due to its internal bay.
Start doing it now because surprises will start popping up in the weapons design phase that will influence the design of the overall plane itself.
Do not leave it as an afterthought or the program will once again be infinitely delayed like the Tejas.

Its an issue of bad project management.

x post from the Navy thread

Everyone keeps talking about foreign influence on Indian design, so let me point out an indelible Indian influence on foreign design.

For LCA Navy, we went with a two seater design with the rear cockpit used for avionics & possibly additional fuel. The same design element was used for MiG-29K and possibly carried forward in MiG-35 that takes MiG-29K developments (paid by India) to land based fighters.

So whenever you see this design, remember Indians came up with it.

Apparently Gp Cpt Rangachari is no longer CO of No.45 Squadron. The role of CO has been taken over by Gp Cpt Samrat Dhankar "Danny". Info by Tarmak. Perhaps this coincides with the move of No.45 Squadron to Sulur AFS.

Gents,

COTS may be the preferred solution in a large number of cases. Cost effective as well as economically viable for the intended role with no discernable advantage over MIL grade items.

There is a tradeoff and that tradeoff improves with design expertise and repair/OH history that is usually factored in by incorporating modifications as the confidence level increases.

Inventory carrying/storage costs and replacement lead times are much reduced. They also have longer shelf lives without very stringent storage inspection requirements and therefore costs.

Usually COTS has more use in numerous other applications and at times has a longer history and a bigger, more catholic database of failure/replacement history and other workshop/repair facility parametric analysis. Technicians are easier to train and retain.

Adding to Kakarat's post above...

Comments below are from the tweet and not mine.

https://twitter.com/strategic_front/sta ... 3252981760 ---> UTTAM is a multimode solid state active phased array FCR with Air-Air,Air-Ground and Air-Sea modes. It's cutting edge ECCM gives low probability of intercept and jammer suppression. Additionally scalable architecture to allow it to fit onto any fighter class.

While I am happy about the progress in testing UTTAM, I hope this does not result in further delays in selecting an AESA radar for Mk1A, which is much delayed already.

Khalsa-ji, cybaru is spot on!

AMCA is still with ADA and so is Mk2.

Mk1A is HAL's baby and they can deliver more if the IAF wants it.

There are enough human resources to manage the programs. The problem lies with the funding and the optimum use of human resources. The GoI and the Bureaucrats need to see & believe the vision ----> a strong, independent, military industrial complex. Easier said than done.

If we order just another two more Rafale squadrons (please, no license production. Just buy them off the shelf, like the first batch and get offsets of components) + take up HAL's offer for two additional Su-30MKI squadrons, by 2025 the IAF can look like this;

4 Rafale Squadrons (72 - 80 aircraft)
3 Mirage 2000I Squadrons (45 aircraft)
3 MiG-29UPG Squadrons (54 aircraft)
17 Su-30MKI Squadrons (312 aircraft)
2 Tejas Mk1 Squadrons (40 aircraft)
4 Tejas Mk1A Squadrons (83 aircraft)
4 Jaguar Darin III Squadrons (80 aircraft)

The above comes to 37 squadrons. You add another three Tejas Mk1A squadrons to the order of 83 and you will have a total of 40 squadrons in the IAF by 2025. Squadron shortage solved without costly expenditures. There is no need for another fighter type in the IAF. All of the above will be *WAY* cheaper than $20 billion (cost of the MRCA acquisition). Once Mk2 production is underway, it will replace the MiG-29UPG, Mirage 2000I and Jaguar Darin III. This is achievable. Once that is done, the IAF will be operating just three fighter types - Rafale, Tejas and Su-30MKI. I am waiting for the CAG report to come out on the Rafale. AMCA will realistically come only by the mid-2030s.

Different product lines for different segments. One is stealthy aircraft and will be our first of the type.
Another is reliable 4.5 gen aircraft that is cheap to order, maintain & operate.

I also think there will be evolution on the AMCA. I think it will end up becoming a larger platform and MKI replacement, pretty much the size of PAKFA if pakfa gets dropped. Problem will be the engine for it. We may have to tie up now for an engine to be available 10 years down the road.

AMCA need not grow to pakfa size. the JSF is going to be the predominant 5th gen fighter for the next 50 years and slowly replace all the F-16. the raptors will be retired as they are costly and each has unique parts due to low volume production.

while being medium size, it has a large radar , comprehensive sensors, network support, vast EW library, some of the best missiles/PGMs , a 1300km combat radius (2x that of a typical fighter), and can accelerate as fast as a F-16 due to internal weapons.

the future of a2a is bvr and network support, not f-16 / mki type hyper moves - missiles are a lot more hyper pulling 45G.

where the JSF might struggle is at high altitude where a big wing & twin tails matter to generate any lift in the thin air and catching manned rockets like the foxhound inbound @ 70,000ft @ mach2.5 ..... most fighters run out of steam in 5 mins of sustained supersonic. the raptor was designed for such high ceiling. AAMs fired do not get the advantage of climbing higher and diving , they are climbing & chasing and losing serious energy after motor burnout. a alert foxhound is almost impossible to bring down at long range.

Hyper Moves via TVC allows you to engage and disengage in the combat on your terms , You may have a hyper pulling missile but you can fire those missile in a more favourable conditions that can be achieved double quickly with TVC and if you even want to egress out you can do that more faster and effeciently with TVC add to it SC capability your capability gets far better , If you happen to speak with Su boys they have worked extensively at TACDE to hone their BVR and WVR/Guns combat skills using TVC , another unknown advantage less know is with TV it reduces you aircraft flap/trim movement in flight and help in conserving more fuel.

perhaps that will be taken over by agile UCAVs packed with 6-10 AAMs and not subject to 9G human limitations.

What about integrating it onto the Tejas.
If the answer is no, India needs to stop buying European defense equipment as it is a dead end.
