Thales offers radar for Tejas LCA

18th October 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales has developed an active array radar for Hindustan Aeronautics Limited's (HAL's) Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), the company announced on 16 October.

The radar has successfully completed an initial flight test campaign designed to measure its performance.

The radar is a lightweight, compact active array radar that meets the requirements of HAL to equip 80 Tejas Mk1A multirole LCA for the Indian Air Force.

Testing carried out at the Cazaux air base in France on a test-bench aircraft focused on metrological analyses of the radar performance. These test flights proved that the radar is operational and corresponds to the specific requirements of HAL for its combat and air superiority missions.

Thales' radar is an advanced fire control radar designed for air-to-air superiority and strike missions, based on solid-state active electronically scanned array technology, enabling the radar to achieve long detection ranges, high mission reliability and multi-target tracking capabilities.

The radar supports multi-mission capabilities for air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea operation modes and weapon deployment.
