Russian defence electronics maker, Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) showed its Zhuk-AME FGA 50 active phased array (AESA) multi-function compatabiel with the MIG and Sukhoi family of aircraft, at the Air Show China today.
The new radar can detect targets beyond the line of sight, track up to 30 of them and destroy up to 6 targets in the air and 4 on the ground.
Zhuk-AME FGA 50 is a multifunctional, multimode AESA radar (LTCC) that is designed for detection, acquisition, tracking and classification of targets on land, air and water. It can provide information support at low altitudes, navigation, as well as guidance for sophisticated air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons.
“This modernized Zhuk radar station has already received its passport for exporting. The system beats competitors in many tactical and technical aspects and was designed for the new generation of aircraft including the MIG-35 fighter”, said Deputy CEO of KRET Igor Nasenkov in a statement.
Zhuk-AME can function in various modes and can simultaneously detect and track targets on land, air and water and provide missile guidance for these targets.
AESA allows to increase the detection range for Zhuk-AME up to 160 km and to simultaneously operate in "air-air" and "air-land" modes, to recognize and classify group and single objects, to simultaneously attack multiple targets with high-precision means of destruction, as well as to transmit tactical data to other aircraft and to carry out electronic countermeasures.
The Zhuk-AME FGA 50 – multifunctional multimode AESA radar (LTCC), providing simultaneous tracking of multiple targets due to electronic beam position control. The radar is designed for detection, acquisition, tracking and classification of targets on land, air, and water. FGA 50 can provide information support of low-altitude flight, navigation, guidance for sophisticated air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons. It has advantages in technical characteristics over its competitors, while being smaller and lighter.
The possible aircraft which could be equipped with Zhuk-AME with AESA could be the MiG-35, the Su-30SM, Su-35 and the Su-30MKI.
The AESA radar will most likely be offered as part of the Su-30MKI upgrade package for the Indian Air Force.
Russian Mi-28NM advanced upgraded attack helicopter will carry unique mast-mounted omnidirectional radar, advanced engines, an all-new control system and an air defense countermeasures system, Russian deputy Defense Minister said.

Russian Naval Variant of Kamov Ka-52 Alligator attack/reconnaissance helicopter will be equipped with compact active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar from KRET. The AESA radar will be able to operate in the millimetre wavelength for effective ground target acquisition as well as centimetric spectrum to enable large naval targets to be detected at a range of 180 km, IHS Janes reported quoting a company spokersperson as saying Tuesday
Russia will equip its fifth generation fighter PAK-FA with an advanced Radio-Optical Phased Array Radar (ROFAR). KRET will be developing the new electronic systems for the aircraft, deputy general director of concern Radio-Electronic Technology (KRET) Vladimir Mikheev was quoted as saying by Sputnik news daily Wednesday
Russia will soon test launch its new nuclear missile, which according to Russian media is so powerful that it could wipe out nearly all of the United Kingdom or France. The RS-28 Sarmat thermonuclear-armed ballistic missile is capable of beating any defences and wiping out entire countries, Daily Mail quoted Russias military as saying
Leonardo has been selected by Safran Electronics & Defense to provide the PicoSAR AESA (E-Scan) radar for its Patroller Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The radars will be used by the French Forces, which selected the Patroller in April 2016
Russia will provide the first batch of four Sukhoi-35 jets equipped with a 30-mm gun by December 25 this month as part of US$2 billion deal signed last year. The delivery is part of the deal signed for 24 Sukhoi-35 fighters concluded with China in November 2015
