Default Re: [Spaceships, Ultra-Tech] On-board Sensors

In fact, the sum of the prices of PESA, LADAR, and RADAR described in Ultra-Tech (well, is there more sensors in Spaceships' setup?) is much expensive ($460K) than even SM+6 Spacecrafts' Enhanced Sensor Array (which costs $200K) but is much lighter (250 lbs) than SM+4 Spacecrafts' (which weighs 0.5ton).

I thought that the sensors intended for ground uses is difficult to build than that intended for space uses because ground has more obstacles for sensors to be operated than space, so that cost differences between these maybe make sense...

But will it justify that the weight of ground sensors which are much lighter than space sensors?
