The Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) has issued a new tender seeking bids for crucial analysis work on the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas Mk1A variant. This tender focuses on integrating new air-to-air missiles and other weaponry onto the upgraded fighter jet.

The selected vendor will be tasked with performing AeroServoElastic (ASE) analysis, Static Stability and Controllability (SCT) analysis, and calculating the maximum allowable response envelopes for the LCA Mk1A. This analysis is vital for ensuring the safe and stable flight characteristics of the aircraft when equipped with new weapon systems.

This involves analyzing the impact of integrating a single Advanced Short-Range Air-to-Air Missile (ASRAAM) onto the LCA Mk1A. The analysis will assess the flight dynamics of the aircraft when equipped with two ASRAAM missiles. The scope also extends beyond ASRAAMs, encompassing analysis for integrating other new types of weaponry onto the LCA Mk1A.

The project will be divided into five distinct milestones, each with a weightage towards the final contract value:

  • Milestone 1 (20%): This initial phase involves generating a finite element (FE) mesh for a single ASRAAM integrated with the LCA Mk1A model. ASE analysis will be performed for this configuration, with analytical computations of servoelastic responses and a comprehensive report generated.
  • Milestone 2 (20%): Similar to the first phase, this milestone focuses on creating an FE mesh for twin ASRAAM integration, followed by ASE analysis, computation of servoelastic responses, and report generation.
  • Milestone 3 (20%): The process repeats for a new, unspecified type of weapon system. An FE mesh will be generated for its integration with the LCA Mk1A, followed by ASE analysis, servoelastic response calculations, and a concluding report.
  • Milestone 4 (20%): This phase will involve Static Stability and Controllability (SCT) analysis for the various LCA Mk1A configurations established in the previous milestones.
  • Milestone 5 (20%): The final phase concentrates on test-analysis correlation. This involves analyzing test data in detail, generating servoelastic response data, and compiling a comprehensive report.

This tender marks a crucial step in enhancing the LCA Mk1A’s operational capabilities. The integration of advanced weaponry like the ASRAAM and other potential stores will significantly improve the Tejas’ air combat effectiveness.
