Indian deployment of strategic assets as of now is different from that followed by Russia china or NK.

India does not have a large unhabitated landmass like Russia china to hide the TELs in or send out the TELs gallivating without risks from the traitors inside the country and those outside the country since hiding such TELs on deployment is near impossible especially in a populated country like ours and additionally no point risking our population through counter force targetting given that India is more or less densely populated across the entire country. Enemy might use the excuse to target out population ( counter value targets ) without any justification saying they were only trying to hit our TELs via counter force targetting.

More I will not describe , something's are better not known.

But Brahmos is an expensive missile.
Nothing of quality is cheap, but it's probably cheaper than fighter jets isn't it? Can probably be produced + inducted much sooner too. And last of all - unlike buying foreign fighters, at least with Brahmos the money is spent on a (semi) domestic product.

DRDO is working on a W band rf imaging seeker for Rudram-1 . As and when it matures it will go onboard the NGARM and sit inside the PHH.

This presentation was made by Dr G Reddy himself. It's April 2019.Even SANT will have a variant of this same seeker.



These are the various seekers which are currently under r&d


A .RF seekers

1. Ku Band - Astra, QRSAM, AKASH-1S
2.X - SLCM, NASM
3.W - SANT, PRALAY, NGARM, RUDRA-M
4.Ka - Project AD

B. IIR seekers
1.NAG = 384x288 MWIR Gear Drive
2.HELINA = 384x288 MWIR Direct Drive
3. MPATGM = 120 micro-meter MWIR Direct drive
4.BMD = 128x128 LWIR

This article by Hemant Kumar Rout mentions the presence of an imaging infrared seeker on SANT.

"While the earlier version of the missile has a strike range of about eight km, the upgraded variant with infrared imaging seeker can cover at least double he distance. One more trial of the missile has been planned on Tuesday. A series of successful tests would pave the way for its induction and serial production," a defence official told The Express.

I believe SANT will come in two seeker versions . A w band imaging RF and an IIR seeker. I assume SANT will have a one way datalink for Lock on After launch.


SANT has a range of 16-20 km when launched by ALH Mk4 or LCH.
So the range will be much higher when launched from fixed wing aircrafts.
