This is a big development. Will make a huge difference in testing the sensors for the AMCA, TEDBF and others. Far better option than the earlier Flying Hack on the Avro HS-748 that was used to test LCA avionics and sensors.



Is this one of teh Air India planes that was supposed to be transferred to IAF?

Yes
Sorry, I tried very hard to look for the sensor, but can't find?
Where is it?
This is a testbed for the AMCA's radar and other sensors. Other such former Air India A-319s will also be transferred to DRDO for the AEW&C test-bed. Eventually the nose radome will be modified to carry the AMCA's Uttam AESA radar.

Since Airbus is the design authority on the A-320 family, any structural changes will likely have to be made by Airbus at their facilities. That is the "plank" that will carry the AESA radar, similar to the EMB-145 based Netra AEW&C.

Indian scientists discover materials that self-repair mechanical damages


Posted On: 24 JUL 2021 5:10PM by PIB Delhi



New materials may soon make it possible for damaged electronic components, such as in space crafts, to mend themselves. The materials recently developed by scientists can repair their own mechanical damages with the electrical charges generated by the mechanical impact on them.

Making the Mission Computer Intelligent – A Step Ahead.
This paper presents the approach of applying the artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in the critical mission computer (MC).

cognitive processing in the MC will make MC to act as an electronic crew assistant sharing the workload of the pilot and helping him in severe situations.

It was being developed since 2013 now it's ready.

Most of the research work on AMCA subsystems has been completed and once the funds are released first prototype will be ready within 24 months.

This is the true revolutionary project in India - no F-35 ls or checkmates - this project has the potential both as a successful product but also in gearing up Indian private sector Industry to equate(if not best) the Chinese. But only if bureaucrats and vested interests don’t get in its way

Airframe construction has started.....:chilli::chilli::victory::victory:
Midhani supplies titanium alloy for medium combat jets’ airframe | Hyderabad News - Times of India


HYDERABAD: As India works to further strengthen its armed forces by equipping them with the advanced medium combat aircraft (AMCA), Hyderabad-based defence PSU, Midhani, has begun supplying the titanium alloy material needed to make the airframe for the aircraft.
“The airframe is an important part of AMCA which is being developed for the first time in India. Other structures come up on airframe and to make it, we have provided a strategic titanium alloy. Some of the requirements have already been met,” Midhani CMD Sanjay Kumar Jha told TOI.

No Tejas delivered by HAL this year, no MK1A taken off yet, no MK2 Tejas even built yet, but now they are "constructing" AMCA.

Only in India, only in India......

Their operations have been affected by the wuhan virus.
no MK1A taken off yet
seriously? The order has been placed for 83 LCA MK-1A literally a few months back.
no MK2 Tejas even built yet
Prototype construction phase, currently is following timeline.
but now they are "constructing" AMCA.
Why not? Building prototypes and all simultaneously is a good step.

You made my point for me. Everything is "going to happen", been like this for years, nothing changes.
