Dear Darky evryone knows that Pakistani missile technology is far better than India and i think you also know that.
And No matter what damn efforts you put or freaking researches you do to copy and paste from other defense forms.... you still won't get the answer... hence its better to admit that your ridiculous claims about radars detecting a heat emitting body was a complete non-sense which you puked out of sheer patriotism, idiotism, fanboism.. and etc.. etc.. isms...
There are many natural and unnatural phenomenon which emit more heat...
How will your IR detectors and tracking equipment distinguish a 50degree Celsius object of the size of brahmos in say a 30-35 degree Celsius heated sea and almost 50-55 degree Celsius heated sands of the Thar desert...
Ballistic missiles emit extremely high heat, are bigger, generate a lot of smoke during launch, leave a tail behind its path, have rocket fuel burning out of exhaust and have a defined trajectory... which in addition is ballistic to make tracking a lot easier....

If according to you a satellite were to track a brahmos then tracking fighter planes were to be a lot easier....
Current technology allows for tracking of naval ships in ISRO but yes NASA has satellites which can track an MBT in an urban environment but for that the satellites need to be pre-programmed and extensive coverage is required.... what you need to realize is that detection and tracking are two different things altogether... you still detect a vehicle near your house using google earth.. but won't be able to track its movement..
1.) Yes both ballistic missile and cruise missiles can be detected..though both need to have different kind of sys in place to detect them...for detecting a ballistic missile you need an air search high altitude radar , which can track targets travelling at great speeds(5-8Km/sec).
For detecting a low flying cruise missile you need Airborne radars(aerostat or Awacs) having the ability differentiate the target from underlying ground clutter.
2.) Now ballistic missile flies parabolic trajectory..hence its point of origin, point of impact and exact flight path can determined once a radar starts tracking it. Whereas cruise missile have a essentially a flat trajectory in which mid course deviation(Waypoints)can be programmed as it has engine powered flight throughout(unlike ballistic missiles which only have their engine powered during boost phase)..point here being the flight path of cruise missile can not be predicted.
3.)To intercept any missile(or any flying object) the speed of interceptor should be higher than speed of the target.(so that it can manouvere at same or higher speed than target).
Now Bhramos essentially has two flight profiles Lo-Hi-Lo(range 300 Km) and Lo-Lo-Lo(range 120 Km)..In the later it flies nap of the Earth where air resistance is more hence the reduced range.
Now if you wan't intercept Brahmos when it is flying Lo-Hi-Lo you will need an interceptor with speed more than 3.2 Mach and engagement altitude more than 30 Km(you don't have one and neither do Chinese..American claims there SM3 interceptors can do it)
If you want to intercept Brahmos when its flying a Lo-Lo-Lo profile well you will be extremely lucky ..because its entire flight time will be less than 100secs) in addition the Brahmos flight path should passing over SAM batteries capable of doing over mach 3.
Hence you will have less than 100sec to detect the target using AWACs.. start tracking it(there is a few seconds delay before the radar starts tracking the target after it has been acquired)..relay the information to SAM batteries..SAM batteries to start tracking the target using their own radars..to fire their engines and get going...Hence it is next to impossible due to low rxn time.

The missile is coming at you, i.e. at the interceptor. The interceptor is not chasing the missile; it just has to get in its way.
A brick wall travelling at ZERO km/h will intercept the BrahMos just fine.
A million rounds from a MetalStorm or similar only have to get in its way.
A heat seeking missile only has to get in its way.
The rest of the post is irrelevant since it relies on the above faulty premise.
So question is does your AWACS or any other plane carry a IRST?
Second point here being tracking range of an IRST is just 20 Kms..so if you start tracking the missile at just 20 Km from the target ..you are as good as dead.
Second point here being all cruise missile have the ability to change their course at will, infact many just like Bhramos and Tomahawk also follow a terminal 'S' manouvere to fool the interceptors.
So if the interceptor missile is not able to to manouvere at the same speed as the target it will never be able to intercept the missile.
Even if the interceptor misses its target by one meter ..it is still a miss.
As far ability of CIWS to destroy the missile..it theoretically exists, but the missile will have to extremely close to its target as CIWS do not have much range and even if destroyed the oncoming debris(at mach 3.2) has enough kinetic energy to totally decimate the target.

Or just blabbermouthing what ever comes there.... like your friend notorious
Here's what your esteemed poster had to say about surface temperature of brahmos....
Think before what you say... and think again when you write that to someone.
You two are just making a laughing stock of yourselves here with No knowledge about the subject at all....
