👆Your initial post.
👇 You Point

Hmmm.... surely you were not.
👇 Your counterpoint

Then what was your initial post about, if you were ok with the names?
You seem to have missed the part , " projects such as these".

Now what was I talking about? I had posted a pic of the DRDO Tech demonstration vessel . And my writeup following the pic contained the words ,'projects such as these '. So if you are to put these two together you would have gotten the point. I was inferring to projects of strategic nature which are PMO administered and which mostly get innocuous science project type names.


As for the statement, " I was specifically talking about PNO administered projects " , I meant the strategic projects and not Tejas Arjun and other missiles , etc with which you associate the names you have earlier posted ...


What is it? Are you being deliberately obtuse? Or is it a slow day for you?

Well, DRDO is working on a MWIR seeker for AD-2 missile as Firestarter has mentioned earlier.

IIR Seeker Development Roadmap.jpg


As can be seen from the slide , the seeker is intended for hypersonic operation. So we can infer that AD-2 will be a hypersonic missile. Or rather the KKV will travel at hypersonic speeds and it will also fly through upper reaches of atmosphere where there will be substantial heating from aerodynamic effects such as drag.

The point aero thermal aero optical effects further lends credence to my statement of KKV of AD-2 operating within the atmosphere . The intense heat will cause refraction and distortion of the incoming light rays.

And finally, the said MWiR seeker will support sub pixel long range targetting. So it's going to be ultra sensitive and will be obviously cooled.


The KKV of PDV-2 used a strapdown LWIR seeker instead .

Plank controller for AESA Radars.

Plank receives the beam steering/timing information from Antenna Beam Control Unit and generates timing and control signals required for 8 no of QTRMs integrated to each Plank in the antenna array.

Seems like now only X band GAn module is left.
Regarding avatar is it under development?

My friend. Your wee sense of comprehension makes you believe that your delusional arguments about the existence of non-existent congruence in your posts (context of 'naming projects' only) is a reality.
Your looney sense of comprehension makes you apprehensive about my perfectly normal arguments. Your rather acute judgemental skills forces you to argue about the irrationality of a perfectly rational and logical statement .

What missile is being fired here? Is it Helina or Sant?

According to a recent article by Rahul Singh, SANT will be fired from a Mi-35 in December. IAF is planning to integrate Sant with Mi-35. He was mum about the integration with LCH.

Hey all. I just wanted to share one of my blog posts here. Since its about the Indian SLBM program, I guess this thread is appropriate. The post (link below) is about how India is repurposing its SLBMs for various other roles like conventional land attack (Pralay), antisubmarine missions (SMART), antisatillite missions (ASAT missile), and in future probably launching satellites and hypersonic cruise missiles as well. The recent test of the SMART antisubmarine missile is just a part of this trend. Do go through the post and let me know what you feel. I could really use some feedback.

Why do DRDO and Navy have to use such science project/ tech prototype sort of names for projects such as these ? Advanced Technology vessel , Technology Demonstration vehicle ..

That is ordinary development stage in every country. In this stage, the platform or vessel, vehicle is built to test the new scientific theory or technologies with minimum or even non consideration of actual usage consideration. It is purely a scientific research which can minimize the development risk.

in these day and age do they expect to hide these type of high priority strategic projects through such academic sounding names ?
Not all. In terms of transparence of weapon development, India is on par with US, Europe. How often did you hear this kind of tech demonstrator projects' name from Russia, China?

Inability to come to terms with contradictions within your thoughts delude you into believing the non-existent rationality and logic in your beliefs.

Lol look at all the different labellings for the same products

View attachment 63785


View attachment 63786

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.

Had you managed to understand my post instead of dilly dallying with semantics, we wouldn't have been here. You are being delusional when you try to comprehend and assuage the existence of rationality and logic in my beliefs with your not so common sensical statements.

Between ,you are free to believe whatever you like. It's a free country . Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Have a great day sir.

Hubris always seems ridiculous – until it's your own. Great day to you too.

According to some reports, SANT is to be integrated with 60 Rudras and 15 LCH LSPs by end 2021.
