The Rule Development Activities of Mavi Vatan’s two new unmanned vehicles, which will be built by the main partnership of Sefine Shipyard and Aselsan, will be carried out by Türk Loydu.
The Rule Development Activities of the unmanned DSH and IDAs to be built by the main partnership of Sefine Shipyard and Aselsan will be carried out by Türk Loydu.
The following statements were made in the statement made by Türk Loydu on the subject:
“The unmanned naval vehicles, which have started production, will be used in tasks such as autonomous reconnaissance-intelligence, surface warfare, underwater warfare, protection of bases/ports/critical facilities and high-value floating platforms.
Both vehicles can reach speeds in excess of 40 knots (74 kilometers per hour). Autonomous vehicles with a range of more than 600 nautical miles will serve for about 4 days without the need for resupply. With their high maneuverability and speed, autonomous sea vehicles will perform flawless missions and cruises even in the most challenging sea situations.
The developed autonomous unmanned sea vehicle will be able to transfer the images it receives to desired centers in real time, detect and classify surface elements, and perform autonomous navigation and operations while avoiding fixed and mobile obstacles even in cases where communication is lost.
The vehicle will be able to navigate adaptively according to what it detects from the sensors on it with the autonomy software and will be able to proceed autonomously according to the maritime traffic rules. In order to gain surface warfare capability, ROKETSAN’s tactical missile system and ASELSAN’s stabilized machine gun system STAMP will provide autonomous protection of bases, ports, critical facilities and floating platforms in surface warfare.
Both sea vehicles can be transported by cargo planes, military ships or land and transferred to their duty points. The autonomous sea vehicle designed for surface warfare can be converted into a trimaran (three-hulled boat) with an expandable platform. Thus, the useful load capacity will be increased, allowing the use of different weapons and systems. The vehicle will also be able to perform electronic warfare, underwater warfare and mine warfare functions.
The autonomous unmanned sea vehicle, which will be used for the security of military bases and civil ports against asymmetric threats in addition to its mission of surface warfare, will transmit real-time video and images with the satellite system it carries.
