Good to know s400 might be last major imported radar and Sam system after which neither radar nor sam system will be imported.
Next project might be better satellite killer , very long range radar , wonder ehat will drdo do after 2025, most of their project are ending in 2025 in radar and missile development .

You heard of VLRTR . 2 units are operational AFAIK.
Yes but no credible source quote it much , so doubt what are it's capability , some claim it 1500 ,other call it well above 2000 km

Will you explain photonic radar , any extra imfo you would share

No creditable source ?

It was mentioned in a document published by DRDO / GoI.

As for range , it has not been revealed .

But I have previously mentioned it's range is 3000 km based on evidence ( I suspect they posted the general range as 3000 km, instrumented range will be much higher , radars are rarely operated at peak output )

Search this thread for my posts you might find the evidence for the 3000 km range.

No info on photonic radar

So
India annually builds way more radars than Israel and probably everyone else barring usa and china .
Even radar exports have started with swathi.

We are simultaneously building radars for BMD , fire control , naval ships , sam control , long range surveillance , airborne aesa all together.
So what ?
For your information India only making what is required to its armed forces with limited resources. Till date India produced less than 20 airborne aesa radar. Also you can't neglect the fact that India depends on forien countries for majority of semiconductor needs. Israel, Russia, USA, Italy providing a huge quantities of radar to India directly and through local manufacturing. Israel already have multi layer multiple Radars and their needs is very less and they provide entire surveillance coverage over Israel

Weren't you questioning bulk mass production ?
India builds more radar per annum than any other country barring usa and china . End of story.

Bottom line is- India yet to achieve its maximum capacity and only using minimum capacity. After 1 or 2 decade India radar production will increase multifold. Having 2 high-tech very advanced Fab will be a game changer.

Read my comment once again. Electronics/ communication. Radar is a small part of it. Even USA having problems with it. Also India not mass producing radar, but producing for it needs, now under current gov considering mass production of radar, initial setup of semiconductor industry etc. Please look into dpsu production before making comments. India yet to achieve full spectrum air surveillance, in other words, we only started.

Numbers does matter and there is difference between pesa and aesa.
Question - how many Radar produced by India wrt Chinese, usa, Italy, Russia Last year ?
