How many trms in elm2052? And uttam Mk1?
A comparison between the UTTAM Mk1 vs. Mk2 AESA radars going by the info we have so far :
No. of TRMs: ~740 vs. ~1000
Type of antenna: Pincer microstrip patch antenna vs. Tapered Slot Array/Vivaldi Antenna
Semi-conductor: GaAs vs. GaN HEMT
Range: >100 km vs. >160 km for a target with 1 sq. m. RCS
Operating frequency: X band for both
Modes of operation: Same for both
Manufacturer: BEL vs. BEL/AMPL
The Mk2 will outperform the Mk1 in every metric while being dimensionally smaller than the Mk1. It will also outperform the Elta EL/M-2032. Photos we have of the UTTAM Mk2. from documents so far:

The one on the f15 use GaAs and has around 1500 trm. Hardware quality-wise the mk 2 is ahead but I doubt our software is anywhere near that good. Plus the ones on ex can use their radar to do jamming similar to the f-35. The true comparison can only be done with the uttam variant that the sukhoi's will get.How good is that compared to say one in Strike Eagle (AN\APG 82 V2 i believe) in terms of Hardware and software.
So license Manufacturing also require minimum orders but at the cost of Indigenous weapon. Dalals BC
UTTAM AESA updates
We keep all radar/seeker stuff here.Is there any separate sub system thread about our indigenous progress with seeker development & mfg? In previous defexpos there
were several interesting seekers shown. This is a vital component.
