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.

View attachment 63725

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

•Ku band seeker is already in use in Astra and Akash-1S.
KU band AESA was in testing. It's Ka band AESA which was under development i think.

• X band seeker don't know whether it's AESA or not is in use in QRSAM. I heard it uses X band AESA though.

Ps: Some one told me about this so I posted it. @Bleh Nibba knew very well what Weapons knowledge I possess.

Lol look at all the different labellings for the same products

Product labelled as X band seeker ( SLCM , NASM ) 1st pic is W band anti radiation seeker in 2nd pic .

Product labelled as W band seeker ( SANT PRALAY ) 1st pic is X band anti ship seeker in 2nd pic .

I think the first picture labelling is correct because W band seeker is a MMW seeker and assembly is cylindrical in shape which is required to fit inside PHH seeker of NGARM.

ADA has set up a rig to test Uttam radar and it's sub-systems.
This rig would be used to test the functionality of radar, EW Suite and communication systems of Tejas Mk1A.
RIP ELTA 2052.
* The news was.....Uttam test completed for A2A mode after 125 hrs of testing.
Current rigs with ADA (as per their site)

I have already mentioned in my post that the presentation is from April 2019.

So it's only natural that several of these seekers have finished their developmental and usertrials and are now in limited or series production .
