And, what will happen to SFDR? if it is consultation type then it's good.
Problem will be UK and in lieu USA knowing our secrets, need to watch out.

West goodies can turn very soar very fast.

Their senators openly say SELLING WEAPONS is A TICKET TO INFLUENCING the concerned nation.
British are trying to cozy up with us and bleeding us in meantime , we should be aware , if this project is convcieved then work share of india should be more than 50 percent

This is true everywhere. You can't thumb your nose to your major arms supplier and will to a point have to accommodate their geopolitical interests. The day India starts exporting lethal platforms you will see this happening with India as well.

Britian offers India a joint venture for developing Meteor MK-2 AAM. MBDA -UK already in a JV with Japan for developing Meteor variant for Japanese F-35.
Strike it down. No need. DRDO is mighty close to realising SFDR technology in A2A missiles and seeker tech already exists (and will get exponentially better in another 3-5 years time). With entire IP of the SFDR residing within Indian companies, we have a winner in our hands and no need to tie up for Meteor.

Meteor MK2 is just a JV proposal.

Several such JV proposals are floated every time there is a bilateral summit, but rarely anyone of them succesfully materialize. Remeber the pomp around signing of DTTI and its failure, because US refused to transfer any technology?
Similar fate awaits Meteor MK2 and the 110 KN JV engine proposal.

Nobody would have made us such an offer had we not conducted successful SFDR tests. These offers mostly come after we've already succeeded or are about to succeed in developing a piece of military technology.

Isro is working on HAVA(Hypersonic air-breathing Vehicle Air frame integrated system) and TSTO
It would most likely use hybrid propulsion can take off using either turbofan or turbojet and then switch to scramjet for hypersonic.
Another way could be by lifting it to an altitude via rocket
Use could be both military and commerical

There is a competition between ISRO and DRDO in hypersonic apparently!

Is it possible to use Kaveri engine for that Air Breathing TSTO ?

Naacho BC.

The sensor is designed to make ABM's warhead explode in a split-second the moment hypersonic maneuvering target comes under 1-5m super-effective blast radius of the ABM's payload.
There are warheads that can reach Mach 24 and that too with chicoms.
So,

And if I am not wrong we still have to intercept those China made high grade Falling missiles deep in space.

Mach 24 speed is in terminal phase exoatmospheric speed isn't that high , it's gravity which increase further speed but if you interscepted it upward you don't need that speed

It is written maneuverable missiles, dude, so maneuver they will do.
If this mean the Missile will start maneuvering at early stage, then we can predict high in the near space, this all interception will happen.

Yes if it can counter a maneuvering targets at hypersonic speed like HCM then it can already counter fixed trajectory hypersonic(at terminal) missles

I think with this they are broadening the kill probability of ABM the best outcome you know once DRDO guys told that "we must have the capability to hit Ballistic missiles launch of enemy in their own territory right after launch", don't know if he was talking about star wars thing or this RCI development.

Yes it is possible as ghatak which would be powered by dry kaveri would have approx 13 ton weight.
But they can't use kaveri because as per their design the exhaust nozzle requires space and eventually they're targeting for turbojet-ramjet propulsion based on kerosene which would have same fuel for scramjet.
DRDO can help ISRO in ramjet as they're working on SFDR technology but obviously TSTO needs more powerful engine.

Let's wait for few years to actually know it's application.
With the pace the R&D is going it's hard to say what intentions does DRDO has.
