    UAE made air launched cruise missile

    The only thing that matters to me is the aesthetics. We need to learn how to sell our stuff. I'm not talking about our missiles (since they are strategic weapons), but our UAVs and even the JF-17 need better marketing and presentation.

    Featured Pakistan Navy Type 054AP Frigates - Update, News & Discussion

    "You must understand that when the Messenger of Allah, on whom be the blessings of Allah and peace, named you Saifullah - the Sword of Allah, he predetermined that you would not fall in battle. If you had been killed by an unbeliever it would have meant that Allah's sword had been broken by an...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    And I thought the Navy was bad. Compared to this guy, my 4 years were heaven. Ragging of any sort (by civilians against civilians or cadets against civilians) was a cardinal sin and any offender was liable to be kicked out. A high-level PN board of inquiry had done this to a group of students in...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    Having seen the military up-close (by studying with them and being taught by them), I can only be amazed at the magnitude of the difference between the public (civilian) perception of the military and the reality. But those are stories for another day. Any criticism of the military in civilian...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    Why is it that anything remotely related to Pakistan's tech industry landscape eventually turns into a major rant against the fauji mindset? :lol: Have to give credit where it is due though: I have not seen an example of what you described in the PN. Not even in the senior (upto 1-star) ranks.

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    Lol, nothing of the sort. Just trading relatable examples. All I'm saying is that Pakistan does not have the enabling environment in which anyone would want to work here. "Jo yahan ruka hua hai, wo wohi hai jisko bahar bhaagne ka mauqa nahe mila" The ones who work on these projects/labs for...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    I live to see my tiny hopes dashed. But I should probably know better. This 'write a paper for practice' problem is exactly why I haven't posted a lot of papers that were written by people at NRDI. During my time at these 'university labs working on national-level projects', I have observed...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    That is entirely possible. However, any technology related to liquid engines is not exactly ground breaking (unless you are sharing the dimensions of injector plates and injector holes, combustion chamber dimensions/pressures, etc). Engine gimballing systems are basically auxiliary/support...

    Featured Pakistan Navy prevented Indian Submarine from entering into Pakistani waters on 16th October

    I won't speculate on the type. Will leave that to those with sources inside PN or photo experts. And yes, the PN may have an analogous solution to the US's SOSUS. Hence the effective detection.

    Featured Pakistan Navy prevented Indian Submarine from entering into Pakistani waters on 16th October

    Around 300kms from Karachi, right at the edge of our EEZ. Either PN is always at the right place at the right time, or it has a very effective detection systems. Or maybe the Indians are just too incompetent. The PN will be very pleased at the ease with which they can record the signatures of...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    From what @JamD has shared earlier, I can say that this is actual R&D for a real liquid engine that is in the works for a future SLV. However, the design presented in the research paper is too simplistic and impractical to be of much use in said SLV. However, one of the authors of the paper is...

    Message by CAS PAF , Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmed Baber Sidhu at Zuhai Air Show-2021

    This standee is probably made by the Nigerian AF, but i get your point. We've seen far worse actually, one only needs to look at the PAC promotional material/standees etc at defence exhibitions.

    Pakistan’s nuclear journey

    The original letter written by Munir Ahmed Khan on January 2' 1975 and hand-carried to S.N. Burny (Administrator, PAEC) asking him to go to a certain address in Karachi and inquire about Dr. A Q Khan's arrival from Holland. The house in question was the residence of Dr. Khan's sister. -...

    Message by CAS PAF , Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmed Baber Sidhu at Zuhai Air Show-2021

    He's probably reading from two transparent teleprompters, hence his very obvious glances to the left and right. Poorly choreographed show, shoddy job by the PAF PR people.

    PAKISTAN REMOTE SENSING SATELLITE (PRSC-EOS)

    Perhaps in an ideal world, what you described may be possible. No so much in Pakistan. There is a huge number of companies in the murky labyrinth of Pakistan's military-industrial complex which are run by ex-military guys. Have they been able to make a difference or create a market for...

    COAS Visits AHQ Lauds PAF Professionalism !

    Definitely. If they're using the GNURadio + USRP combo, then the possibilities of what they can do are literally endless. Just needs persistence and consistency. Obviously, a solid theoretical background in relevant areas (RF, antennas, wave propagation, signal processing) will be required

    Featured Pakistan's Shahpar II UAV Unveiled

    I won't be bragging when I say that what I'm writing below is the summary of around 4-5 years of looking at publicly available info about these orgs. NESCOM -> civilian org responsible for BMs, CMs, UAVs and basically any other strategic systems (including warhead development) NDC, AWC, MTC ->...

    COAS Visits AHQ Lauds PAF Professionalism !

    Yepp, saw that later. But the interface looks very much like GNURadio, maybe theyre using virtual machines to run it :lol: Also, I caught FlightRadar24 in one of the initial shots I think that the more we seek, the more things will start to come apart
