Sir what is this missile...?.........
Chinese mainstream BVR missile. It was rumored that it employs Dual Active/Passive guidance. This poster confirms the rumour.
Ok thanks Sir...
Dual active passive, Pilot can select both modes or they are working at a time??
Speed > mach 5?
That's an interesting question. Let's ask some professional @gambit
Might be a best case scenario, if released from High altitude
The poster says: Combined Mode, Fire and Forget mode, Passive mode.
It has Inertial / Data-link (mid-course)
Active radar homing (terminal phase)
ANother question sire it is mentioned INS+Active radar guidance or active homing. Then how can you say that it is both active and passive. ?
Data link? SOme thing related to satellite or IP operations? Please elaborate it seems new technology. I worked on Tercom,INS,GPA,Active radars but DAta link.............?
The missile at launch gets the initial coordinates from the JF-17's onboard radar.....then it goes towards the target. If the target is still within the launch aircraft's radar scan, the missile gets updated information. If not, it continues on the last known location.......once it is close enough to the target, it switches it's own radar ON (seeker) and gets a final lock.
It says...Max Launch Range as 70kg????
Whenever the target is within the range of the missile radar/seeker, it will go into Active Radar mode....may or may not be terminal phase......since it will still need to put up the chase anyway.
Exactly it will work like this. Thankyou sir. But what is Data link?
A datalink will allow the launch aircraft to provide mid-course target updates or retargeting if required, including data from offboard third parties.
The datalink electronics are mounted in the starboard intake fairing, ahead of the FAS. The antenna is mounted in the rear of the fairing.
faS- fin actuation subsystem
Data link is like the Wifi between your computer/smart phone and the wireless router.
It means a radio link on which target data can be sent/received by the missile.
As spark explained. The reason being, INS takes the missile in the general direction of where the target ought to be based on the calculation at the launch time. But considering that it may be maneuvering the calculations maybe completely off. So the data link provides updates to the missile of where the target is during the mid course before its own radar takes over once the target is in range.
