Loral Defense Systems-Arizona's participation in the JAST program gives it a significant opportunity to continue developing weapons guidance radar
technology for the next generation fighter aircraft.
A typical battery has a 30N6E1 illumination and guidance radar and eight (although some batteries have twelve) 5P85ME/SE launchers, each with four ready-to-fire 48N6E missiles.
In the case of the 9A82, the command guidance radar is mounted over the cab, providing 90-degree cover on either side in azimuth and 100 degrees in elevation.
The 9S36E target illumination and guidance radar
(Tigr) can be elevated up to 21 metres and covers [+ or -] 45[degrees] in azimuth.
The reason was they knew if they turned on that guidance radar
, they were going to get a missile.
As commercial and military aircraft operations are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and complex, air traffic guidance radar
systems will require leading-edge technological advances," said Tom Kennedy, Director of Air Traffic Control, ITT Industries, Gilfillan Group.
Air Force systems like the AlE-50 towed decoy and Large Aircraft Infrared Counter-Measure (LAIRCM) are designed to degrade the performance of terminal guidance radar
and electro-optical sensors housed within missile seekers.
It provides early warning, identification and direction finding of targeting and ASM guidance radars
It was initially mooted by APJ Abdul Kalam in 1997 and taken up in the 2000s, when key technology relating to tracking, fire control and guidance radars
became available from Israel, France and Russia.
Operating under a cooperative Memorandum of Understanding for the Block 2 system demonstration and development program, Raytheon's German industry partner, RAM-System GmbH, has been funded to develop an evolved missile radio frequency sensor that will provide increased sensitivity and discrimination in order to successfully defeat targets utilizing next generation guidance radars
