    Tejas fighter to get indigenous Laser Designator Pod to target the enemy

    .

    Tejas, India’s indigenous supersonic Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), is all set to get one of the most potent and advanced targeting systems in the world with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully developing Laser Designator Pods (LDPs). The LDPs will exponentially increase the attack and fighting capabilities of the Tejas fighter, which has already joined the Indian Air Force (IAF), by turning it into an extremely formidable jet which can undertake day as well as night operations and in all weather conditions.

    “Laser designator pod (LDP) is the laser sensor-cum-targeting system used in aircraft and provides inputs in actual flight conditions. These are advanced airborne infrared targeting and navigation pods to improve both day and night attack capabilities in all weather conditions. It performs tasks like detection, recognition, identification, designation of surface targets, accurate delivery of guided bombs and accurate ranging,”Sputniknews.com, a Russian news website, quoted an unidentified Indian official as saying.

    Laser Designator Pods use a laser light source with pinpoint accuracy to designate a target which can then be destroyed using laser-guided bombs, missiles and high-calibre artillery munitions. According to the Sputniknews.com report, the LDP developed by India is extremely cost-effective, accurate and has successfully met all the parameters for an air-to-ground weapon in a flight simulator.

    The report further states that Indian scientists P Suresh Kumar, NNSSRK Prasad and K Senthil Kumar were involved in developing and testing the LDP. The Indian LDP was able to achieve an average positioning accuracy in terms of azimuth and elevation computation for static and moving ground targets at +/- 2.3 metres.

    India is already inducting the Damocles LDP equipped Rafale fighter jet, manufactured by France’s Dassault Aviation. The Damocles LDP have greatly enhanced the day and night laser designation capability of the Rafale jets. These LDPs allow laser-guided weapons to be delivered at stand-off range and altitude while their infrared sensors operate in the mid-wave infrared band, allowing them to retain their effectiveness in warm as well as humid conditions, a must for any fighter with the IAF.

    The Centre for Military Airworthiness and Certification (CEMILAC) has given the clearance to the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) to go ahead with the production of weaponised version of Tejas Mk1 jets under Final Operational Clearance (FOC) configuration. The first weaponised Tejas is likely to join the IAF by the end of 2019.

    ^^^
    Rafale will not be using the Damocles but the Rafael Litening G4 which had been ordered in good numbers in 2016. There an option for TALIOS integration in the future but that has not be exercised thus far.

    In the hustle-bustle of events, we deeply apologize for reporting this late about the First production flight of the 13th series produced Tejas (LA-5013) on 30th Jan 2019. The Flying Daggers will grow in strength to the full squadron number soon.

    In the same way, JF is Chinese. Pakis are just air brushing it.

    We are atleast license manufacturing MKI unlike Pakis assembling the knock out kit. No point in comparing Tejas with JF-17.

    Status Update of AESA radar Uttam : Shake down sorties were completed in January, 2019 on modified executive Jet hired. Indigenous AESA radar integration and EMI/EMC tests on LCA ‘Tejas’ LSP2 aircraft are nearing completion and flight evaluation is planned shortly.

    If we offer something like JF 17, IAF will refuse to even touch it.
