    ppgj! Thanks for the interesting info on seekers. This is the area where our pvt sector can contribute with active funding from DRDO,BDL and HAL,BEL. Basically the seekers with complete RF package are small radars. The bulk of material required is less and miniaturisation will be the aim. small slotted array antenna mounted on gimbal mechanism driven by either brushless DC or Brush DC motors controlled by onboard computers. nice technology to get involved with.sadly not much work is done in India though DRDO requires them for all its radarguided,IR seeking missile developments. will AGAt part with these seeker tech to India? Nowadays newseekers are going the AESA way with out any moving parts...

    added later

    "On a contract basis, AGAT’s specialists and scientists are ready to perform development of ARS and other equipment in minimum time at the highest scientific and technical level." I hope DRDO babus are already on the job!!!

    you are right venkat.

    seeker technology is the brain of a missile. the critical tech is what makes it difficult to create and the same reasons hold the countries who have it, from passing it to us.

    however drdo has been trying its best. it is worth noting this -

    a request to mods.

    i have mistakenly opened the thread under this section.
    it should be in " Bombs / Missiles / WMD" section, i guess.

    can it be moved please?

    sorry and thanks.

    Issue 34. July - August 1999

    AGAT PRESENTS RADAR SEEKERS OF THE 21st CENTURY

    Iosif Akopyan, Director and General Designer of the Moscow-based Agat Research Institute

    Full article is available for subscribers only.

    The Moscow-based Agat Research Institute is a leading enterprise of the Russian defense industry in the field of developing radar seekers (RS) for air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles intended to fight air attack weapons.

    [​IMG]
    9B-1103M RS

    Its products have been repeatedly demonstrated at international aerospace shows and have always aroused interest of military experts from many countries.

    The Agat Institute has been engaged in developing radar seekers since 1958. During this time, it has accumulated extensive experience in the development, testing and series production of several generations of radar seekers.

    The Institute has all conditions for full-scale development and testing of radar seekers, as well as for their manufacture in small batches.

    The Agat Institute has developed radar seekers for the Kub and Buk field air defense missile systems and their versions such as the Kvadrat, Gang and Ural systems, as well as for the Shtil shipboard air defense system. In addition, it has created all radar seekers for missiles to arm MiG-23, MiG-25, Mig-29, MiG-31, Su-27 fighters and their modifications.

    In recent years, the development of radar seekers in the Agat Institute proceeded along two lines. The first line was the further upgrading of previously developed semiactive radar seekers by using the newest components and the digital processing of signals, as well as reducing RS weight and dimensions. The logic of RS functioning was also improved in jamming environments and under various conditions of missile combat employment. In particular, the problem of ensuring engagement of waterborne and some types of ground targets was successfully resolved for the radar seeker of the Buk-M1 air defense missile system.

    The second line of the Institute's business was the development of new active radar seekers with characteristics allowing their use in 21st century missiles. One result of this work is the improved 9B-1103M RS which the Agat Institute presents at the MAKS '99 aerospace show.

    [​IMG]
    9B-1388 RS

    This radar seeker has a diameter of 200 mm, weighs no more than 10 kg and ensures a detection range of at least 25 km for a target with an effective reflective area (ERA) of 5 m2.

    The development of the updated 9B-1103M RS has resolved complicated technological problems that cause difficulties for world-renowned companies. As a result, the Agat Institute has developed new miniature units and devices that serve as the basis for this and other advanced RSs. These include:

    - a miniature SHF transmitter and an SHF receiver with an accelerated mode of klystron and TWT heating;

    - an RS antenna seeker based on two fiber-optic gyros (instead of mechanical ones);

    - a digital signal processor and a high-speed computer (over 50 mln operations per second) with a large memory volume, which allows signal processing in several parallel channels.


    [​IMG]
    9E50M1E RS

    The use of these devices significantly improves the RS performance, especially:

    - decreases the time of missile launch readiness (to 7 - 8 s from the cold state or to 1 s when the cathode is partially warmed up in the standby mode);

    - increases RS smartness, thereby significantly improving missile jamming immunity and accuracy of guidance.


    The Agat Institute presents its most promising products at the 4th Moscow Aerospace Show in the town of Zhukovsky, including the following radar seekers:

    - updated 9B-1103M;

    - 9B-1103M;

    - 9B-1348E;

    - 9B-1388;

    - 9E50M1E.

    The Agat Institute continues science-intensive research in the field of defense products, carries out development work relevant for the Russian economy and welcomes cooperation.

    @venkat.

    this really interests me.

    this is from an older article domain-b.com : India crosses the threshold

    Added Later :

    ok. here is the answer.

    indian scientists must have adopted that to Astra.
