Many AESA programs..
Fighter - LCA Uttam in development
AEW&C- 1: Ready for delivery as A2A modes tested, TRL of 8/10
AEW&C -2: Project under investigation
Aslesha- AF -3D LLLR in production
Ashwini LLTR- trials - 200 km against fighters (TWS), 4D
Arudhra MPR - trials - 300 km against fighters (TWS), 4D
MMSR - in devpt - likely WLR/Surveillance Radar
LRTR-1, production ready 600 km against 0.1 sqmtr for PDV surv; fire control.
LRTR-2 development, 1400km range, for AD-1 fire control
MFCR- 300 km range; for AAD surv, fire control
Theres also an AESA for IAC surveillance, possiably a varient of Arndhra, Not to be confused with Israeli one 'Both Indian and Israeli [Medium Power] radars named Arudhra, by DRDO and IAF respectively. First Israeli radar delivered in 2011 - no TOT but with offsets per DPP, Indian radar to be ready for trials by 2013 (development sanctioned in end 2010 with 3 years development time) and induction by 2014-15. MPRs will replace existing TRS 2215 radars from Thales and local BEL derivative PSM MK2. Eight DRDO MPRs ordered to begin with, numbers likely to rise given requirements. Range of radar class (both) ~300 km for fighter class of target, able to track all classes of targets. Both are AESAs, and DRDO radar is 4D able to track range, height, speed and doppler velocity.'..

Here is a look at inside floating fortress Kochi. This is the biggest warship made in India.
Blackshark wass torpedo won on cheaper cost factor not on technical grounds, now Seahake is longest range torpedo in the world 104 kilometers range. Wass blackshark rejected by french and even italian navy itself. It was antonia maino plus antony who managed to influence selection of wass blackshark.
Since french are going too uppity with f 21 and their recent success in australia, Bharat will go for german Seahake 4 torpedo and their construction in "Make in India" too.
Out of anger in australian deal, germans are offering no-holds-bar ToT in P-75I deal, after than our dependence on key tech for subs will finish forever, "loha garam hai" Parrikar is ready to hit it with torpedo deal too. Antonia will have to return bribe money for wass torpedo too... Good deal overall.
So from Aridaman onwards nuke subs will also be equipped with german torpedos.
Underwater systems experts, including serving Indian Navy admirals, say WASS' Black Shark torpedo - now banned - was always a poor choice. They say the better solution, both tactically and strategically, was the Seahake torpedo that Atlas Elektronik offered, but was controversially pushed down to second place.
Seahake advocates argue that even the Italian Navy rejected the Black Shark, instead choosing Atlas Elektronik torpedoes. As its next-generation choice, Italy has plumped for the F-21 Future Heavyweight Torpedo, that Atlas Elektronik is co-developing with French company, Thales. France, too, rejected the Black Shark.
With the Italian, French and German navies having rejected the Black Shark, this torpedo is fielded by only five small navies - those of Chile, Ecuador, Malaysia, Portugal and Singapore. In contrast, Atlas Elektronik is the largest international supplier, having supplied torpedoes to 18 navies worldwide.
The MoD's department of defence production knows that this large customer base allows Atlas Elektronik to maintain cutting-edge capability in all seven torpedo systems - the homing head, explosive warhead, battery, electronic systems, propulsion system, wire guidance system and propellers.
In contrast, WASS outsources entire torpedo systems: Atlas Elektronik supplied the Black Shark's wire-guidance system and a French company supplied the battery.
Therefore, a question mark hangs over WASS' ability to transfer technology for manufacturing torpedoes in India. In contrast, Atlas Elektronik, which owns 99 per cent of the intellectual property (IP) in its torpedoes, is in a position to transfer technology to India for building torpedo sub-systems and integrating these into complete torpedoes.
Given the German company's expertise across the full spectrum of torpedo technologies, and its worldwide customer base - neither of which WASS enjoys - the MoD and Atlas share a common interest in building in India.
India is poised to be the world's biggest torpedo buyer, requiring an estimated 400-600 torpedoes for six Scorpenes being rolled out, six Project 75I submarines on the anvil, and four to six nuclear-powered submarines planned.
Instead of issuing piecemeal tenders for small batches of torpedoes, such as the 98 currently being bought for the Scorpene, the MoD can deploy an irresistible strategic offer to induce a full-spectrum vendor like Atlas to 'Make in India', in partnership with domestic high-technology companies.
With delivery of 83 Varunastra for Surface fleet, The submarine version will stop all imports of Torpedoes ..
Thats really a very good thing which happened to IN surface ships. But the submarine version i believe "Takshak" torpedo has no news for any development going on. I wonder what is onboard INS Kalvari !!!
Any news on which torpedo is on board INS Arihant. Is it the Russian Test 71?
Takshak is under development, But its the Varunastra which is going for submarine fleet in less than 2 months ..
Arihant is already deployed, Perhaps with Russian or older SUT torpedoes ..

Here it is INS Chennai
Project 15A to end with commissioning of INS Chennai on Monday
Marking the completion of the Indian Navy's crucial Project, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar will commission its last vessel "INS Chennai" into service on November 21, an official said here on Friday.
Indigenously designed and constructed, the Kolkata-class guided missile destroyer has been built by Mazagaon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd (MDL) here.
While INS Kolkata was the first ship in this class commissioned on August 16, 2014, the second was INS Kochi commissioned on September 30, 2015.
After her commissioning, INS Chennai will be placed under the operational and administrative control of the Western Naval Command.
It will undergo certain additional sea trials of the ship-borne systems before she will assigned to the Western Fleet and based in Mumbai.
INS Chennai, Project 15A Ship, Is Ready To Be Commissioned
INS Vizag will be commissioned in mid-2018. So no more awesome ship commissioning in 2017. Maybe both INS Kiltan and INS Kavarvatti (Kamorta-class ASW corvettes) will be commissioned in early- and late-2017, respectively.
What are the black panels on the mast for?

So friends P15A is complete, now its the turn of P15B
Project 18 as well. I would love to see a challenger for Type 52D or 55.
Project 15 is already a challenge for them.
What we need right now is a lot of different kinds of Indigenous missile systems, SAM, cruise, LR-SAM, MR-SAM, SR-SAM etc that can all be fired from ships. And they all should be able to be fired from a single VLS cell, like the American and Chinese have, that way, depending on the mission demands, we can have different set of missiles loaded inside the same VLS cells.
