    Are you sure?

    I was under the impression that the PAK-FA was using the Byelka system developed from the Irbis-E. Along with two smaller side-looking radars in the forward fuselage. I believe the picture you posted is for a proposed radio-optical phased array, that for the time being is pretty looking vaporware.

    It's one of a pair of smaller side looking AESA radars.

    Photonics has potential but is still relatively immature as a technology. The US began investing heavily into Photonics in 2014 with private companies matching Federal contributions to try to advance the "Technology Readiness Level" from where it stands at level 4 to level 6 or 7. Research is also underway in Europe, and a team in Italy created a photonics radar prototype in 2013.

    As for when it will be ready to use for real? Who knows?!

    Some new video footage of the Pak Fa and other Russian aircraft:

    The tolerances seem to be getting better but they don't appear to have their surface coating yet. Otherwise, how is it that you can see all the rivets?

    I've yet to see a PAK-FA with LO enhancements... eg I've never seen any PAK-FA imagery where the c0ckpit has been treated to manage reflection, refraction and absorption of radar waves.

    if anyone has some feel free to post it up .....
