    Talk by APVS Prasad of ADE on "Challenges in Design and Development of MALE UAV TAPAS - 201"



    • Its a 2-3 ton UAV
    • 1,800kg -> 2,800kg, inital design -> first prototype :dude:
    • Want to reduce the weight by 280 kgs.
    • Single engine design was optimal :fuu:
    • Uses GAGAN semi-auto take off and landing (ATOL)
    • Full ATOL in development
    • One variant cannot meet all service requirements.
    • Single engine twin-boom configuration in future.


    Talk by Gargi Meharu of HAL on "Conceptual Design of Amphibious Aircraft"



    HAL's ambitious amphibian design (SAGAR) specs:
    1. 15 tons payload
    2. Range 4000 kms
    3. Loiter time: 1.5 hours
    4. Service ceiling: 9 km
    5. Gross weight: 47 Tons
    6. Twin turbofan: 133 kN each
    7. 100 passengers
    8. fuselage length: 32 mtrs
    9. T Tail

    Talk by P Mahuli of CEMILAC on "Concurrent Certification in the Design & Development of HTT 40 Basic Trainer Aircraft"



    • P&W was the first choice of engine which they declined. (Pilatus ?)
    • It just took 11 months to detailed design to first prototype
    • HTT-40 did 38+ test flights
    • DM reviewed the project 8 times in 11 months before first flight. His support was crucial.
    • Reused LRUs from LCA,HTT-36 and ALH

    Talk by Wg Cdr MA Dubey of IAF on "Indigenisation: Challenges & Way Ahead for Indian Air Force"



    Talk by Gp Capt PK Anand of IAF on "Indigenous Product Development: Make in India"



    • Marut was a success but we failed to follow up on it.
    • DPSUs become comfortable with licence manufacturing.
    • There is a separate department for Indigenisation in IAF MC
    • MSMEs are participating while big companies are reluctant.
    • 45000+ spears are Indigenised with the help of MSMEs
    • More than 90% of the routine spears are now indian for IAF MC
    • Focus is now on high tech items.
    • Most of the Indigenisation done by IAF MC is reverse engineering.
    • New IDDM is a step forward for Make in india
    • IAF is building up in house R&D capabilities. (At least for realistic ASR :azn:)

    Is this related to the news that HAL were working on an amphibian based on the Do228?

    • UTTAM AESA for LCA is ready ! :partay: (hardware and software qualified), flight testing is what left.
    • Waiting for LCA PV1 modifications.
    • For a AESA radar 50% is software.
    • Its fully indian, power amplifier was denied. So, we made a better one.:oops: (Thanks to Astra microwave )
    • Liquid cooling system.
    • BEL and Astra microwave are major partners.
    • 4 T/R module in one. 4000 QTRM already produced.
    • This QTRM will be used on 2-3 more ground based "Strategic programs".
    Looks like LCA will get AESA before eurofighter :troll:
