But can't find it in drdo broucher , please share link , or it's other nameI got your point. Its true that India has not tested any of the RADAR for its naval operation. There are many reasons for that which BTW are getting addressed one by one.
Lets compare MF-FCR with MF-STAR (ELM-2248) on functional parameters.
ELM-2248 could do following functions.
1- Simultaneous multi-engagement support
2- Active and semi active missile support
3- 3D long-range air surveillance
4- 3D medium range automatic threat alert
5- Missile horizon search and threat alert
6- Target classification (including helicopter)
Now I seriously hate DRDO on how they club up the whole specs in a single line. But lets differentiate on point basis.
MF-FCR could perform following functions.
1- It has the capability to perform extensive search, track multiple targets and missiles.
2- It has the capability to command and guide own multiple missiles concurrently.
3- 3D long-range air surveillance is its primary function.
4- Automatic threat alert is the basic function of any search and track radar.
5- Missile search and track already covered in point 1.
6- Being a Air defence radar, it could search and target any kind of air threat, be it jets or helis.
So you could see that, on functional parameters, it is doing all the jobs of ELM-2248 except being deployed on a ship and tested in a sea environment.
