Elimona Hawkeye AEW Tiltrotor aircraft by Stealthflanker Elimona Hawkeye AEW Tiltrotor aircraft by Stealthflanker
-AEW power on the back of your destroyer-

Captain Jonathan Bridges- Morning Glory class Air Defense Destroyer captain.


Elimona Hawkeye, an iteration from our Belinda Hawkeye compound aircraft. This aircraft is designed mainly to provide "extension" to fleet air defense and anti surface warfare, providing acquisition, precision tracking and target designation to its carrier vessel.

The ELIMONA Phased Array Radar in the dorsally mounted "saucer" is the key devices to provide above mentioned capability. It built based on our naval CANARIA Radar of our Canaria Shilmea naval AEW, using similar processing but different operating band where ELIMONA operates at C-Band (6-8 Ghz) This operating band is a compromise between requirement of precision tracking capability and environment (multipath, absorbance by atmosphere..etc).

The radar is also capable of uplinking mid course guidance to air defense missiles and designate target for engagement by Yakhont anti ship missile.

The maximum instrumented range for ELIMONA is 450 km for large ships, fighter aircraft with RCS of 3 Sqm is detected at 160 km. The Radar has 3 m width antenna with array height of 1,13 m. total peak power performance of the Radar is over 40 Kilowatt with 40% duty cycle.

Cooling is a liquid based using PAO (Poly Alpha Olein) which will later dump the heat to the air.

Processing of radar image and data however is done on board the carrier vessel, using similar datalink channel as our Yevonia (same capability but cannot be deployed in all weather and sea state)

Unlike other tilt rotor such as V-22 Osprey, Elimona did not use turboshaft engine or its turbofan engine to power the rotor. Instead the rotor is powered using permanent magnet motor. The motor draws power from podded 1 Mw rated generator located near the Elimona's wing root. The generator is later "spun" by the turbofan engine.

Power generation for the ELIMONA radar set use different generator set located in the fuselage but powered by same turbofan engine.
