12 Comments on "Reality Check: Tejas Needs A New Radome"

A new radome is not needed unless a new radar is coming. Now that EL/M-2032 has been fixed as the radar for all production-grade LCA Mk-1s, and already flight-tested a few 100 times, I don't see any reason for modifying the radome now.

Under all probability, the new radome is being designed for Tejas Mk-2, which will have a new radar, highlighting the need for a new radome.

Man Aroor did you write this piece out of boredom or what? You raise more questions instead of answers.

appears?
could?

Is there a problem or not? Why don't you ask somebody in the ADA? & Please check thoroughly, last time you ended up shooting yourself in the foot with the torsion bar episode. Journalists in India have not learnt to be objective in their analyses..not yet. 🙁

Tejas-1 requiring a new radome, after 2000 flights? This appears to me as a cock and bull story. Why the hell din't you check with ADA or HAL before dashing off such unconfirmed nonsense?

Given that the IAF has approved the Elta-derivative radar for the Tejas & the current less-than-satisfacory performances of LRDE MMR, Elta radar would continue as Tejas' MMR, including Mk II. LRDE efforts being geared towards building an AESA radar for Tejas. The Radome being requested for is for the current configuration.

Seriously Shiv this headless tailless god knows what wanting to covey article of yours is lowering the standards. Firstly the MMR now in LCA is Hybrid, but when LCA (read radome) was designed there was no such plan. Secondly you don't know until you know! That's why things are tested. May be MMR testing has reveled room for some improvementa or even say correction. Like it is said in article itself they will compare if better they will use. And BTW where in ADA's EOI it is written that new radome is for MK-1 solely? Everybody knows MK-2 is already… Read more »

Very cryptic. People find out after 1900 odd flights that there is water ingress problem? That should have been first thing found out – Rain inside LCA. Same for lightining protection.

Just hope they dont want to change the radar at this point.

Radome!!!!

This is a funny article…Seriously shows frustration on slow movement towards Tejas FOC.
Drop Rafale and FOC will happen within a month. IAF will not buy this bird otherwise. What does Browne drink…Spiked french wine !!

the new radome will increase the accuracy and range of the radar; the current kevlar radome causes some problems when recieving signals. The new radome is also intended to boost the all weather capabilities of the tejas.
Why doesn't the mk1 use the more powerful EL/M-2052 radar which is an AESA radar?
