I’ve heard that Pixellated camo isn’t visible in IR cameras and is one of the reasons why soldiers prefer pixellated camo.
How , I mean it can be confusing but this is something new , I would love to read more on that

I think it might be possible for sar generated imagery but ir one is a bit odd

What he is saying is based on ground combat units where it helps against thermal sight somewhat but in IRST and flir cases it is useless as they process all collected data not like basic thermal imaging sights of soldiers , it's confusing for eyes not computer

FCAS


AATMANIRBHAR THING IS NICE BUT WE SHOULD PARTICIPATE IN PROG LIKE FCAS OR TEMPEST BEC
FROM DECADES WE ARE USING RUSSIAN PLATFORM AND OUR SARKARI PROG ARE NOT IITANS
IT WILL GIVE BETTER EXPOSURE TO OUR SCIENTIST, PROGRAMMERS ON MANY SUBJECT

And fuck our amca in every sense ,they are short on funding , project will be delayed ,too many prototype and long timeline , good ppt don't make good platform .

Tempest is non starter for some time ,and what they are planning is almost similar to amca , except Design is futuristic , amca is most soothing platform , don't get lured by good pr videos

Fuck no we should not join this fuckass project. Also note that we need to stay 100 miles away from any defence project that involves Germany.

No.. just no! Your goal and you means are totally contradictory. If we go for it the IAF will only be interested in the end result as a product- not in growing and maturing our local aerospace industry, the scientists and programmers will be caught in red tape between organizations/countries, the so called partner will be only interested in our funds, not in sharing tech. So no thank you. Going it alone is the only way to master it. If anything we need to back our guys to the moon and back.

In some interview Dr. AK Ghosh of ADA was heard saying pixellated camo breaks the lock of the IIR missile seeker.
Yes I know, I saw a show in discovery channel regarding some airsoft and a US Army veteran while holding a Woodland camo said these are cood camos but are easily visible with IR Sights, so I’ll pick this up (UCP Camo) which is next to invisible in Infrared sights.

Today our aeronautical capabilities are mature such that we can handle 2-3 aircraft programme. In the next 5 years 4 new fighter jets prototypes will be developed and tested. The designs are optimized as per our service's specific requirement. So no need to join any foreign programme, which will be a waste of time and resources. Had GOI/HAL/IAF not wasted so much time on PAK-FA programme (from 2005-2018), AMCA mk1 would have been inducted by IAF by now.
