TEJAS AIRCRAFT: TEJAS AIRCRAFT In 1969, the Indian government accepted the recommendation by its Aeronautics Committee that  Hindustan Aeronautics Limited  (HAL) should design and develop an advanced technology fighter aircraft around a proven engine. Based on a 'Tactical Air Support Aircraft' ASR markedly similar to that for the  Marut , [12]  HAL completed design studies in 1975, but the project fell through due to inability to procure the selected "proven engine" from a foreign manufacturer and the IAF's requirement for an air superiority fighter with secondary air support and interdiction capability remained unfulfilled. Leading Pariculars & Performance: Leading Pariculars & Performance Dimensions Weights Aircraft Performance Wing Span 8.2m Take off weight (clean) 9500 kg Max Speed Mach 1.6 / 1350 Kmph (CAS) Length 13.2m Take off weight (max) 13200 kg Max ‘g’ +8 to -3.5 Height Overall 4.4m Service Ceiling 15 km Variants : Variants Tejas development programme has also accomplished the design and development of two seater trainer aircraft for the Indian Air Force.  The Success of Tejas programme for IAF drew the confidence of Indian Navy entrusting ADA with the Design and Development of Naval Version of LCA for operation from Aircraft Carriers. Aerodynamic enhancements to improve low speed performance for Carrier operation, addition of Arrestor Hook for deck recovery, need for a stronger Undercarriage and Cockpit redesign for naval operations have made the LCA Navy development programme an immense challenge  Systems :   Systems T ejas incorporates a highly reliable quadruplex digital fly-by-wire Flight Control System. The new generation glass cockpit comprises Multi Function Displays (MFD), Head Up Display (HUD) and Stand by Instrumentation System driven by Open Architecture Mission and Display Computer. This provides effective Human Machine Interface (HMI).The advanced utility and health management system provides system health and warnings to the pilot through a Open Architecture Computer (OAC).  Powerplant :   Powerplant F404-GE-IN20 Dimensions:  Diameter 890 mm, Length 3.9 m  Weights:  Max Weight 1,035 kg (2,282 lb)  Engines Performance:  Thrust 9,163 kg (20,200 lb
