Hey Doc sometimes i dont agree with u but U put in lot of effort man... Thanks for the effort... Great job
RAFALE'S 1ST FEMALE PILOT

XIV)SWITZERLAND, LEAKED EVALUATION REPORT:
I) NWA PHASE I 2008 ANALYSIS WITH REAL FLIGHT TRIALS:
II)NWA PHASE II 2009 ANALYSIS WITH REAL FLIGHT TRIALS:
It is worth noting that the Air Policing mission, although important, is a quite low risk mission. In more challenging Air to Air task such as OCA or DCA missions where the target can be highly dangerous and where ECM/RCS become of primary relevance, the Rafale seems to prevail with a more comfortable margin.

Dassault Aviation has launched a beautiful video : Rafale Before Flying
Thales delivers first production RBE2 AESA radar to Dassault Aviation
Neuilly-sur-Seine – In February, Thales delivered the first series-produced RBE2 radar with active electronically scanned array (AESA) to the Dassault Aviation facility in Mérignac, France. The radar will now be installed on Rafale C137, the first Rafale with this new capability, which is scheduled for delivery to the French defence procurement agency (DGA) this summer. A comprehensive three-month flight test programme conducted with the first production RBE2 AESA radar at the Istres air base demonstrated the qualities of the radar and confirmed the expected levels of performance prior to delivery to Dassault Aviation.
The RBE2 AESA radar was delivered in line with the contract schedule, demonstrating the new radar’s technological maturity and further consolidating Thales’s European leadership in radars for combat aircraft.
The RBE2 AESA will give the Rafale a number of key advantages:
Extended range for full compatibility with the latest-generation long-range missiles, such as the Meteor, combined with the ability to detect low-observable targets
Higher reliability for reduced cost of ownership (no major maintenance is required on the active array for 10 years)
Waveform agility for high-resolution synthetic aperture (SAR) imagery and increased resistance to jamming
The Rafale will be the only European combat aircraft under full-scale production with an active-array radar. The operational superiority of this omnirole combat aircraft, which was demonstrated most recently during Operation Harmattan in Libya, is now further assured for the full spectrum of French Air Force and Navy missions relying on the new technology.

Sir kindly Correct me if m wrong
Legendary aviation reporter JOHN LAKE reports in air international magazine that
IS RAFALE THE MOST WANTED FIGHTER IN 2012
sorry i hadnt bought the magazine or else i would have scan it & posted it's pics .
ANY ways if some of u can buy this magazine & post it's info in this thread ,ur contribution shall highly appreciated

AMAZING VIDEO DEPICTING ALL THE SENSORS ON BOARD RAFALE
Air Cosmos 2307, April 13, page 14:
Integration of Meteor has started:
credit: OlybriusThe flight test campaign began last fall. Flights are conducted by Rafale C101, B301 and M02. Wind tunnel testing was completed in February at Onera facilities. Meanwhile, the software development on Rafale has also started. With a field of fire doubled to Mica, the software for the Meteor will include new "aid to fire" for long-range engagements. The integration should be continued until 2016. Commissioning is still scheduled for 2018 but could be advanced in 2016 at the request of an export customer.
thank u for info mate

Rafale Consortium presents technical details of your aircraft at LAAD Security 2012
In a presentation to the media specialist, the Rafale International consortium led by French companies Dassault Aviation, Thales and Snecma, presented yesterday afternoon (04/11/2012) during LAAD 2012 Security technologies and solutions that are part of the proposal share offered to the Brazilian government in the F-X2 fighter acquisition of new fab.
A video presentation of technical and operational stress allowed some innovative features of the Rafale. Moreover, reaping the technical details is possible to understand their operational capacity, has recently proven in combat in Afghanistan and Libya.
It was emphasized that the French fighter from the beginning is designed for all missions, and also replace all types of aircraft in service with French forces. Being really, since its origin, OMNIROLE a game, unlike a multipurpose game and can play in a single mission all the functions of:
- Air defense and air policing;
- Aerial reconnaissance;
- Air-ground attacks, air-sea;
The home-machine interface in the Rafale is based on the concept HOTAS - Hands on Throttle and Stick - along with touch-sensitive screens, plus a great tactical display. Making the Rafale fighter easy to learn, ride and give the pilot total situational awareness.
Spectra and AESA Radar
Spectra shield against electronic threats, is an electronic warfare system totally enclosed in the Rafale, which makes available all external stations for weapons, fuel tanks or bores.
The Rafale's AESA radar delivers superior range for detection and acquisition, with the scanning electron agility and ability to track targets within or outside the aerial search, and soil mapping modes with ultra-high resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR).
The AESA radar for the Rafale is the most advanced for this class of fighters. It also allows the Rafale flight at low altitude over land is not mapped in modes with autopilot engaged in low or no visibility.
With a full load of weapons and fuel the Rafale takes off with two and a half times its empty weight - more than any other game in its class can.
According to the French, now the Rafale combat aircraft is a mature and at the same time, the starting point for an evolution toward a variant exclusive designs by Brazilian industry through technological and industrial cooperation.
The transfer of technology will provide the source code FAB total autonomy to meet future needs.
thank u for info mate

You should give some credits to the person who finds these reports and articles don't you think?
