@Indx TechStyle would you please tell more about ITM that you quoted on other thread for different type of missile , and which system are in testing
Nirbhay has been cancelled overall and will act as a technology demonstrator only. A new program to develop a series of cruise missiles is in existence now named as ITM/ITCM (Indigenous Tech Cruise Missile). They may be named ITM-1, 2, 3 etc. unless provided with specific names.
Then, corona screwed the schedules. I think I have read a more detailed article which I can't find right now.

Hope they try stealthy design, nirbhay is really a sore for eye .

NAL has developed and patented processing technique called “Vacuum Enabled Resin Infusion Technology (VERITy” for the manufacturing of composite wing) . LCA , LCH , SARAS like aircrafts used this technique to develop their composite wings .

The above autoclaves are used for manufacturing composite wings for various aircrafts including LCA.

Repost in AMCA thread please. Looks like things have improved since the previous RAS designs.
Its specific for X band. We need Ultra Wideband/Broadband to go with it as well. There is a novel ultrawideband design as well for -10db in 1.7 to 25 Ghz as well.
There is also design for -20db in 7.5 to 14.5 Ghz in IIT .
I also found a graphene- metallic pacth by a NAL guy for 1 to 60Ghz absorber.

No idea. But many are intended to be used for military applications. Few of these guys are also cited by Iranians and Malaysians aside from ofcourse Chinese and Koreans. Didn't Know the Malaysians were into stealth stuff.
