Developed by ROKETSAN and incorporating the achievements of today’s technology, the ATMACA Anti-Ship Missile hit a ship’s target for the first time in its last firing test before entering the inventory. ATMACA is expected to be delivered to the Naval Forces Command in the second half of 2021.
Developed by Roketsan, Turkey’s first national Anti-Ship Missile ATMACA was first succesfully launched from the TCG KINALIADA. Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar; the commanders of the force, the head of the Office of digital transformation of the Ali Taha Koc, the Vice President of the Defense Industry Professor Dr. Faruk Yiğit and Roketsan general manager Murat Ikinci and foreign guests from abroad watched live. ATMACA is counting down the days to enter the Inventory. Also ATMACA managed to get full marks in the last shooting test.
Tests started in 2016
ATMACA conducted the first test in 2016. ATMACA Guided Missile qualification shot was successfully performed by TCG KINALIADA (F-514) Corvette of the coast of Sinop in November 2019. The ATMACA Guided Missile was fired from our surface platform for the first time.
Makes a Difference Compared to Its Rivals
ATMACA, which can be used in all weather conditions, is resistant to countermeasures; It includes target update, re-attack and mission cancellation capabilities. In addition, thanks to the advanced mission planning system (3D routing), it can be effective against fixed and moving targets. Using the Global Positioning System (GPS), Inertial Measurement Unit, Barometric Altimeter and Radar Altimeter subsystems, ATMACA uses its active radar seeker to find its target with high accuracy.
With a range of over 220 kilometers, ATMACA also poses a major threat to targets beyond line of sight. Behind ATMACA’s target update, re-attack and mission cancellation capabilities is its advanced and modern data link. In the system that can offer the most efficient task profile; Time on target, target destruction and setting fire to the target operational modes are also available.
ATMACA also makes a difference with its structural design. In line with the developing technologies, the missile was designed using composite material technologies to reduce weight and increase structural strength, and these technologies were utilized to the maximum in the production of the missile. In addition, ATMACA, which has developed with domestic and national resources, will be used effectively by the Navy for the protection of the Blue Motherland and will undertake important tasks in this field.

Roketsan, was founded on 14 June 1988 by the decision of the Defense Industries Executive Committee for the purpose of “Establishing a leading institution in the country for designing, developing and manufacturing rockets and missiles”.
After securing the 98th position on the Top 100 The Largest Defence Companies list for the year of 2017, Roketsan has moved up to the 96th position in 2018 and 89th in 2019. Since the day it was established, Roketsan, in accordance with the mission it has undertaken, has the skills to design and produce rocket and missile systems nationally and in line with the requirements, including design and technology infrastructure development projects, product development and production programs, in training the users and in meeting the logistic support requirements of weapon systems.
As with all the other defense industry establishments all over the world, Roketsan has also widened its product range to cover Land, Air and Sea Weapon Systems and to sustain its existence. Roketsan develops and manufactures various types of rockets, missiles, guided munitions along with their launching and propulsion systems, seekers, guidance-control systems, fuzes, warheads, mechanical parts, algorithm and software, integrates them to land, air and naval platforms, gives logistical support for these systems, produces rocket propellant, designs and manufactures ballistic protection and ensures the development of space launch vehicles.
Aiming to become Turkey’s largest technology army with its more than 3,300 employees, Roketsan continues to develop designs and products unique to our country and nation, with over 1,700 engineers and R&D studies financed by its own equity.
