DRDO’s LRDE at “DefEXpo 2022” that had showcased the Uttam AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) Fire Control Radar (FCR) with a 912 TR module and it was confirmed it was an upgraded variant of the Uttam AESA FCR. DRDO-HAL originally planned to incorporate Uttam FCR with 780 TR modules from 21st Tejas Mk1A but now the plan might be changed to incorporate upgraded FCR with 912 TR but it might be seen from later batches.
ELM 2052 Radar that HAL has locally manufactured in collaboration with Israeli ELTA under the Transfer of Technology deal might be procured more than 20 units for the Tejas Mk1A and later units will come with Uttam FCR with 912 TR modules.
Upgraded Uttam Mk2 that was developed for the Tejas MkII program might also find its way now into Tejas Mk1A to streamline the production line as Tejas Mk1A also has a larger Nose cone it can accommodate in it.
