India’s DRDO Develops Angad Self-Protection Jammer for LCA Mk1A

India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has made significant progress in electronic warfare technology with the development of the Advanced Self-Protection Jammer (ASPJ) Pod, now officially named Angad. This cutting-edge jamming system, built on Active Phased Array (APA) technology and powered by ultra-wideband Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM), has successfully completed all developmental trials.

The Active Phased Array (APA) technology is at the core of the ASPJ Pod, enabling the aircraft to dynamically adjust its radar beam, making it highly adaptable to changing scenarios and optimizing its jamming effectiveness. This capability to steer the radar beam enhances the aircraft’s survivability, particularly in high-stress situations.

The ultra-wideband Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) plays a pivotal role in the jamming operation. It possesses the capability to capture, store, and replay radar signals, effectively confusing adversaries and disrupting their targeting mechanisms.

DRDO recently issued an Expression of Interest (EOI) to identify a potential industry partner for the Transfer of Technology (ToT) of the Electronic Warfare (EW) Suite designed for Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Mk1A. The development of Angad and the broader EW Suite demonstrates India’s commitment to advancing its indigenous electronic warfare capabilities.

The implementation of this state-of-the-art technology not only strengthens the capabilities of India’s military aircraft but also reflects the nation’s dedication to self-reliance in defense technology. The transfer of technology and collaboration with industry partners will further enhance India’s electronic warfare capabilities and contribute to its overall defense preparedness.
