The new Uttam radar derivative that has been cleared for development for Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jet will have a higher transmit under receive module and will be backed by a more powerful power supply and will take advantage of the large nose cone of the Su-30 aircraft that will give it an impressive track and search range.
The Indian Air Force will depute two Sukhoi Su-30MKI aircraft to carry out development trials from 2024 onwards along with other indigenous Weapons Systems as part of the Super Sukhoi upgrade program.
The Su-30 fleet will also get a more powerful HAL-built Digital Flight Control Computer with higher computing power to help in the integration of more indigenous and Western developed weapons.
