“Sees a thousand goals”: ​​Seoul has completed the development of an airborne radar with AFAR

72

The South Korean defense industry has completed the development of a radar with active phased array antenna (AFAR), created for the new national fighter KF-X.


Previously it was believed that it [the plane] could not be created on the basis of domestic technologies. Now competency has been confirmed

- writes the publication HeraldCorp.

The radar, designated AESA, is scheduled to be publicly presented on August 12.

The ceremony scheduled for next month is especially significant, as we finally completed the development of the AESA radar (AFAR), which was considered impossible

- said an official representative of the government.

The development of the radar was carried out by the Defense Development Agency and Hanwha Systems as part of the KF-X Korean Fighter program. The need for its development was due to the failure of Lockheed Martin to transfer appropriate technologies to Seoul, although this was promised with the acquisition of the F-35A Lightning II.

As a result, South Korea independently created a radar, and the Israeli company ELTA Systems helped conduct air tests, which started on September 26, 2019. Allegedly, the experienced radar was very positively received by Israeli personnel. Radar tests on the KF-X fighter itself are scheduled to begin in 2021, when the first prototype aircraft will be lifted into the sky.

    Judging by this quote, it was confirmed that the aircraft could not be created on the basis of domestic technologies.

        And in the end, AFAR will be on the planes of the "likely enemy" ...

        What is not the “cooperation” of the “axis” countries, and the enterprises of the countries that obeyed them, during the Second World War, in shock work for the benefit of Nazi Germany?

              South Korea is ~ the territory of Moscow and the Moscow Region without Deshman oil, woods and nickel with gas, which can be driven over the hill to stupor. So, perhaps, in their case, high technologies really deserve respect.

                  It’s kind of frivolous to compare your beloved with the capabilities of an electronic computer. Given their ability to cooperate with allies and develop, do it yourself, it’s normal for them to do this. I think that worthy of the samples of America and Europe can succeed.

                  You do not confuse AFAR and PFAR; over AFAR for the Su-57 they still conjure and there are no bravura comments yet. And the AFAR for the MiG-35 is also only in the layout so far - it’s not worth it on real samples.
                  So Koreans have something to be proud of.
                  God willing and we will soon rejoice ...

      No need, firmly and clearly.

      Well, there is an AFAR on the 5th generation, but the characteristics are questionable.
      There is a Beetle-AM on the new APMs, but flight tests most likely have not yet begun, only bench tests.

      And so, ROFAR is a photon radar by 2050.

                  But who knows? Most likely with the experimental version, or with the radars of the previous generation (on those experimental machines on which the glider and pilot work out).
                  There was a proposal to offer for export Su-57E with engines AL-41F and radar "Irbis", but then they refused it.

              After describing the F-22, here's what they write about the SU-57.
              “... Much less is known about the Sukhoi Su-57. Despite seven years of test flights, many details about the aircraft remain unknown. All that is known is that Sukhoi struggled to develop the aircraft, especially key components such as the engine. It is planned that the first operational aircraft will be part of the Russian Aerospace Forces in 2019.
              .... The Su-57 will be equipped with the N056 Belka radar system and the L402 electronic interference kit. L-range locators will be the primary means of detecting stealth aircraft, while at shorter distances, the 101KS Atoll electro-optical kit, including an infrared search and tracking system, will help the pilot track and hit targets with infrared-guided missiles. ”
              In addition, the article compares engines, weapons, glider capabilities and much more.

    KRET conducts this work, is the lead organization under the order of the Advanced Research Foundation (FPI) under the government of the Russian Federation. The project was launched in February 2015, and ends in July 2019. We must present the mock-up demonstrator ROFAR and conduct research on the possibilities of its use on promising media .....
    What is the financing of the project?

    It goes through different channels - in our direction it is 683,8 million rubles. At the exit, we must present a mockup - demonstrator

      In 2005 - a technology demonstrator for Hindus, in which millions had to be invested. The Hindus drove the developers and that bug was bent.

      The new Beetle - on new MRP. He just now (at the end of 2018) put on the poster. Only he has at least some chances to stop being an exhibition model and become a real radar. However, I did not see any reports of the start of flight tests. Although they will be - for this is an export topic and the UAC needs an AFAR, since all competitors offer this option, only the UAC cannot.

    The South Korean defense industry has completed the development of a radar with active phased array antenna (AFAR), created for the new national fighter KF-X.

    With Afar there is a nuance that is rarely written about.
    Afar radars come in two types
    1. Created on the basis of existing radars - that is, they add an Afar antenna with a control unit to the radar, and the radar itself is minimally modified.
    In this case, the task is much simpler, but to fully realize the capabilities of Afar will not work.
    2. Specially created radar from Afar. In this case, you can implement many of the features inaccessible radars of the old types, such as LPI mode and so on.
    But the technical complexity is much higher and the price is also much higher.
    Therefore, you need to know what type of Koreans did

      In this case, you can implement many of the features inaccessible radars of the old types, such as LPI mode
      In radar, and not only in it, it is customary to separate the signals into “simple” and “complex”, and the notion of “signal base” is used as a characteristic of a signal in this vein; for simple it is equal to one, for complex more than one, the higher value of the base, the closer the signal to noise-like. By "elpiae" at least an approximate range of signal base values ​​will not be known,
      it’s pointless to judge the level of its noise level, and so far this is only an advertising slogan, and a lower detection range on it, in comparison with some kind of “ordinary” signal, indicates problems with the signal’s “energy”, and this still draws a bunch of negative properties.
      In addition, complex signals have long been used in fighter radar, for example, in Zaslon (Mig-31), Meche (Su-27), "experts" can try to name what complex signal, with a base of 13, was used in the radar of one American fighter for a long time before the advent of the Internet and “e-mail,” so that “everything new is well forgotten old.”

    One old joke: German comes to England and was surprised with the grass, it is thick green, healthy, beautiful. He asked the British how they get such good grass? The British answer, it’s easy, you need to fill the grass on a regular basis and cut it and ....... such 300 years! :)
    So they will create the UK, or what? The necessary tradition and school. The UK has a strong Promotional, ali is much lower than Japanese or Chinese, and they cannot make a full-fledged 5th generation aircraft. Yisrael was very cunning and they are on the plane of generation 5 a bright year, or they are gaining experience on papaus like the UK and still get money for it. AFAR is not the newest technology, but it’s not easy to make a good AFAR radar even in very developed countries, but the radar is only 1 part of their plane even a thousand. !
    But the UK goes the right way, only 300 years needed! wink

            Dassault in France sold Mirages to Israel. Israel not only advertised these aircraft during the war, but also participated in the refinement of this aircraft. Many countries in the 60s did not want to buy Mirages due to the fact that due to a defect, at certain angles of attack, Mirages fell into an uncontrolled corkscrew. The Israelis solved this problem. And then they bought a lot of planes. But when in 1967 the Arabs put pressure on the frogmen and demanded an embargo on the supply of weapons, Mossad had to buy the drawings of the Mirage and organize production on its territory. There is nothing criminal in this, many countries stole drawings - in 36, the USSR bought the Christy tank on the basis of which it created its own T-34. The GRU was engaged in industrial espionage. The Americans took out von Braun and more. And the USSR took out German defense plants. In short .. everyone was doing it.

          I don’t want to touch your tongue, because most of it flies off - lies. Israel at the beginning of its history faced the arms embargo of many countries. Therefore, I decided to invest a lot of money in military technology. Serbs, like you, did not even dream of it. You know how to do only the simplest or what Russia supplies you. Therefore, rocket technology, unmanned aircraft, military electronics in Israel - at the highest level, and their own. Read more and do not touch your language.

                  No need for me to answer, answer yourself. All technologies armed simply by transfer were transferred from the USSR, USA, France, etc. Normally, I do not argue that today Israel can independently make good weapons, but if it could not have unlimited resources (capital) and the roof of the globalists then it would be a miracle.

    In any planning there should be intermediate achievements. Which tell us that work is going on. And the thought develops.

    This is what you say as a manager, not as a sapper.

    The South Korean defense industry has completed the development of a radar with active phased array antenna (AFAR), created for the new national fighter KF-X.

    CLASS of course ... but we have no time to suffer on this subject, we need to restore our electronic industry, scientific and production base! AND TEACH, PREPARE new specialists for the industry and science !!!

    Do not restore, but create. The USSR has lagged behind for many decades in this area
