DRDO’s LRDE at “DEFEXPO INDIA 2022” showcased UTTAM AESA(Active Electronically Scanned Array) Fire Control Radar (FCR) but upon closer observation, it was sported with 912 TR modules which are more than 780 TR modules usually seen in earlier Uttam models that were displayed.
UTTAM Mk2 program will cater to the Tejas Mk2 program and also of Mig-29K program of the Indian Navy. DRDO also has plans to develop Uttam with a rotating repositioner that allows the pilot to take a beyond-visual-range missile shot and then turn 90 degrees while still giving mid-course updates to the missile fired.
Uttam Mk2 will get a large field of view that makes it possible to have a 140-degree search volume within a 200-degree look-angle around the nose of the aircraft.
