The ATMACA Guided Missile, developed indigeneous and national, was successfully tested on July 1, 2020, to meet the needs of our Navy’s ship-to-ship cruise missile.
President of the Defence Industries Dr. İsmail Demir, about the successful test shot off Sinop, said, “ATMACA flew long this time. Our ATMACA cruise missile, which successfully fulfills its functions by successfully hitting the target at a distance of 200+ km, is preparing to enter the inventory. ”
ATMACA Guided Missile qualification shot was successfully performed by TCG KINALIADA (F-514) Corvette off the coast of Sinop in November 2019. The ATMACA Guided Missile was fired from our surface platform for the first time.
In September 2019, the ATMACA guided missile firing tests were carried out from land-based lanchers at the Sinop Shooting Field. In the images shared by the Presidency of Defence Industries, we saw the ATMACA guided missile while flying close to the sea (SeaSkimming).
ATMACA Anti-ship Missile
ATMACA will be used instead of US-based Harpoon missiles as surface-to-surface missile systems. ATMACA cruise missiles are produced by Roketsan, fire control systems and other equipment by ASELSAN indigenously. ATMACAs will be integrated into MILGEMs and it will increase our deterrence in the seas.
As in SOM missile, development work of the ATMACA Missile powered by Micro Turbo product TR40 Turbojet Engine has been completed in Roketsan main contractor. In the project, local companies and institutions take part with the systems of Aselsan (RF seeker head) and ArMerKom (fire control system and operator console prototypes).
ATMACA Missile, which can be used in all weather conditions, is effective against mobile and immobile targets with its resistance to countermeasures, target update, retargeting, task termination capacity and advanced mission planning system (3D routing). ATMACA, like the TUBİTAK-SAGE cruise missile SOM, dives to the target ship ‘from the top’ by reaching a higher altitude when it approaches the target.
ATMACA has Global Positioning System, Inertial Measurement Unit, Barometric Altimeter, Radar Altimeter capabilities and finds its target with active accuracy radar scanner. Hawk missile, 350 mm in diameter. It has a wingspan of 1.4 meters. With its 220+ km range and 250 kg High Explosive Penetration Effective warhead capability, ATMACA threatens its target beyond the observation line. Data link capability gives ATMACA target update, re-attack and task termination features.
