Local university develops Pakistan's first Phased Array Radar
 
DAWN.COMPUBLISHED ABOUT 2 HOURS AGO
     8 COMMENTS  EMAIL  PRINT
Capital University of Science & Technology (CUST), Islamabad recently conducted a field trial for Pakistan’s first ever Phased Array Radar (PAR).
 
Pioneered by the Controls and Signal Processing Research (CASPR) department of CUST, the radar will be used for air surveillance.
 
Traditional radars tend to use large dish rotating antennas, while newer radars move their radio beams electronically. To accomplish this feat, calculations have to be precise to one billionth of a second, an achievement CUST has successfully claimed.
 
Professor Aamer Iqbal Bhatti, accompanied by his former PhD student, worked on a plan to design and develop a prototype for the PAR. After receiving approval for funding, the professor assembled a team to undertake the project.
 
Experts such as Dr Inam Ilahi Rana of Bismillah Electronics, a respected authority on microwave transmissions, undertook the microwave subsystem of the radar, while a relatively new company, Renzym, worked on the signal processing module of the PAR.
 
Changes in political regimes meant the project did not get the necessary support from sponsors, but the project persevered.
 
The first field test was conducted at the rooftop of Mohammad Ali Jinnah University in 2011. Despite its success, financial constraints plagued the project.
 
Bismillah Electronics and Renzym stayed on despite the problems and the project continued.
 
After completing the circuits and signal processing modules by 2016, and after the required testing phase, work on the Phase Array Radar concluded.
 
The Phase Array Radar has defence applications and will assist the Pakistan Army, Pakistan Air Force, and Pakistan Navy.

ma-sha-Allah, congratulations to the Pakistani PhD (former student) and his professor for this great accomplishment. This is what we need to foster and encourage in Pakistan, literacy, education, for our young to grow intellectually and contribute toward the advancement and progress of Pakistan.

It's a research pilot project which was supposed to be tested in 2010. L-Band & instrument range of 150km with 32 elements. More details here: http://www.renzym.co...ed-array-radar/

I doubt it. Looks like a "stock image" of some system. Not Pakistani..

As a side note, we often jest and joke about various India defense projects and their inevitable demise, but one area where India is doing rather well is radar based systems. Their progress is starting to gain momentum, such as the recent induct of the recent CABS based AEW&C system momunted on a Embraer.

 

All projects require momentum and this is one area that India has done well in addition to their space based systems.

 

Will Pakistan build on and maintain momentum in the space?

Not really, they still want to import more Israeli AEW and can't even make a radar for LCA yaar
