 R-27 (AA-10) Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile | Air Power | SinoDefence.com
It is not clear whether the missiles received by the PLAAF are standard R-27R and T models, or their downgraded export variants are known as R-27R1 and R-27T1.
In its final stage of flight, the missile switches to semi-active radar-homing mode, or active infrared-homing mode depending on the type of the seeker.
It is also capable of going around a plume of passive jamming, of being moved out of the main lobe of the platform's radar, and approaching a low-flying target from above at a given angle.

 BAe Active Skyflash and AIM-120 AMRAAM
Using its frequency agile radar and infra-red search and track sensor it may not be detected by a less sophisticated opponent, who would then be up against an effectively silent, invisible adversary firing missiles which announce their presence only in the terminal homing phase.
The Active Skyflash seeker is a derivative of the Matra MICA active radar seeker.
Certainly were the requirement for an active missile to develop, say as the result of regional acquisition of the Fulcrum or Flanker, the AMRAAM and Active Skyflash would have to come under consideration.

 The Ultimate Semi-active radar homing Dog Breeds Information Guide and Reference
Semi-active radar homing, or SARH, is a common type of missile guidance system, perhaps the most common type for longer range air-to-air and ground-to-air missile systems.
In addition, the resolution of a radar is strongly related to the physical size of the antenna, in the small nose cone of a missile there isn't enough room to provide the sort of accuracy needed for guidance.
Contrast this with beam riding systems, in which the radar is pointed at the target and the missile keeps itself centered in the beam by listening to the signal at the rear of the missile body.

 Air Power Analysis: AIM-120 AMRAAM
Although the AMRAAM's active radar-homing seeker does feature this capability, its ability to guide itself in this manner is limited by the distance between itself and the target.
Simply put, the small radar located in the missile is not powerful enough to detect and track a target over the ranges at which missile launch typically occurs.
Should the target attempt to protect itself with active jamming, the radar is capable of utilizing its medium-PRF mode to provide a "home-on-jam" function.

The Sparrow uses semi-active radar homing and is compatible with either constant-wave or pulse-Doppler radar illumination.
Since this seeker uses its own active radar, it does not require that the launch aircraft illuminate or track the target during the terminal approach.
It can also be configured to carry two AGM-84 Harpoon anti-shipping missiles, which uses active radar homing during the terminal stages of the flight to the target.

 Air-to-Air missile (AAM)
For this purpose, the MRM uses a radar homing system with a greater detection range and better all-weather properties than the infrared guidance system.
Particularly, in an active radar homing system, the transmitter radiating radar waves should be incorporated in a guidance control block.
To overcome this drawback and allow the launching aircraft to retreat after launching the missile, the need for an active radar homing system using radar waves transmitted from the missile itself has been recognized and studied by many countries.

 Asian Aerospace 2004: Radar plays large role in RSAF buy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The Thales radar is close to being available for deployment, so depending on delivery schedules, Thales could deliver an AESA set on the second batch of aircraft to be delivered under the proposed contract schedule, and then the initial batch could be retrofitted to the AESA configuration.
For its part, Thales officials stress that to step up from the passive to the active model as they propose for the Rafale is much less complicated than what Raytheon proposes for the F-15.
The Singapore competition is really a look into the future in that the AESA radar is now the new cost of admission for a fighter trying to succeed in most export markets.

Because they home on radar energy reflected from their targets, semi-active radar homing (SARH) missiles like Sparrow or SkyFlash required that their targets should be constantly ‘illuminated’ by the launch aircraft’s continuous wave (or later pulse Doppler) radar.
In an effort to overcome the inherent limitations of semi-active radar homing missiles, there have been a number of attempts to produce long range missiles which can operate with greater autonomy, and with less support from the launch aircraft.
This meant that the missile used a small on-board radar to home onto the target in the final stages of flight.

 Chinese Defence Today - 9M317/Shtil (SA-N-12) Ship-to-Air Missile
The 9M317 missile is almost identical to the 9M38 in appearance, apart from a smaller wing span and chord.
During the initial stage of the flight, the missile relies on the command from the target acquisition radar until it is close to the target.
In a severe jamming environment the missile could also be guided by the electro-optical director, which would overwhelm the normal semi-active radar homing system.

The problem with active radar homing missiles is that they generally don't work too well close to shore.
Also active homers are limited by small radar sizes and have limited ranges requiring SARH or intertial or midcourse update to get the missile close enough to the target.
An active homing missile such as Harpoon has a range of around 150 km and would be fired at a point where the radar seeker will switch on and look for targets, the so called 'over the horizon' capability.
