    Guys, here is a gist of some of the papers and keynote addresses from the Aero India seminar 2011.

    Please note that...

    1. This is a gist and I'm not quoting the speakers directly.

    2. I'm just giving out points which will be of extreme importance for jingoes out there.

    3. I'm not following the timeline of sessions but focussing on a project and trying to collate info together.

    4. Any errors that may creep in are 99.99% my own and not of the speakers.


    Coming shortly, Updates on LCH and Helina!

    Good thread ganimi. Expecting some nice updates. Previous AI-2009 seminar had revealed many details about the projects in India.

    LCH

    Dr. Prasad Sampat, HAL.

    1. LCH was conceived based on ASR created after the Kargil investigations.

    2. TD 1 flight displays in AE 2011. TD 2 will be static display. TD 3 will join in Feb 2012.


    3. 350 kg weight reduction done successfully on TD1.



    4.Features of LCH---

    * Push pull cable used instead of rod for lower weight and higher safety for the craft.

    * Cockpit and HM interface developed with extensive input from users from early stage.

    *LCH more stable than ALH.

    *Directional solidified blades.

    * IR suppresor.

    * Facetting for RCS reduction.

    * Smart materials for vibration suppression and health monitoring.

    * EW and UV based MAWS being developed. (Different source)



    5.SPECS

    MTOW- 6500kg.
    V NE- 330 kmph; V H- 275 kmph.
    Rate of climb- 12 m/s
    Max. Altitude- 6500m
    Range- 570 km on int fuel,
    750 km with aux fuel.


    6. Modifications on TD1

    * End plates removed- For weight reduction as the extra vertical stabilisation was not needed. (That ends the debate on AE 2011 thread!)

    * Both tail and nose landing gear fairings.

    * Armament boom modified by giving it an aerofoil cross section.

    *Optimised cowling scoops.

    Thanks for the updates ganimi. They are heavily investing on stealth, protection, sensors and high altitude warfare.

    All these modification indicates these....

    Continued from earlier post---

    Jingo bytes!:devil: :smokin:

    1. Higher crash worthiness than ALH.

    2. Glass cockpit with MFDs, smart interfaces.

    3. Higher power Shakti engine variant!:azn:

    4. Fully pressurized cockpit, can even operate in NBC conditions. (huge advantage in high altitude warfare)

    5.Metal composite armour.

    6. Four hard points, for carrying upto 8 Helinas!:smokin:


    @ Kinetic,

    I agree completely. The LCH is going to be a real mean copter from technology and sheer performance aspects especially at high altitude. The stealth component was higher than my expectations, so was the flight performance! Wished we knew something about the DIRCM in development.

    That is great, can we co ordinate our efforts to create a complete AE 2011 seminar database?

    I could not attend the other two symposiums (UAV-1, and Airborne Surveillance), can someone put their gist too?



    Also, interesting activity in audito B than C!

    I was also looking at DIRCM development for long time. If you get some info about it will be great. Its one of the latest and key technologies of LCH.
