Turkish Aerospace Industry (TAI) continues Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) deliveries without further delaying. Currently, a new delivery of ANKA boosting the Navy Command’s capabilities for instant target detection, identification, tracking and destruction over the sea.
Delivered with new capabilities
The 4th Anka UAV, which successfully underwent acceptance tests as part of the Operative UAV Procurement Project, was delivered with new capabilities. SARPER+, SAR/ ISAR/ surface search radar (synthetic range radar), which can remotely detect and track surface and land targets as well as mobile targets, was supplied to the Navy Command on Phoenix aircraft for the first time.
In addition, for the first time, through the Automatic Identification System (AIS: Automatic Identification System) capability integrated into the UAV, ANKAs, which have gained the ability to detect the information of all surface elements at a distance of hundreds of miles, can instantly transmit all radar, image and automatic identification system intelligence information to the Command Centers.
The modifications of the previously delivered 3 ANKA aircraft with the Automatic Identification System were also made by TAI with this delivery. Similarly, a total of 4 Phoenix with SAR and EO/IR cameras, which were delivered to the Navy, are used for 24/7 reconnaissance and surveillance missions across all our maritime borders from the Eastern Mediterranean to the north of the islands.
Works for ANKA+ Continue
While TAI continues to work on ANKA UAV systems and adds new capabilities, it also continues to come to the stage with the more advanced ANKA+ model for the ANKA family.
The ANKA+, Anka’s advanced model, is expected to have longer endurance and a higher capacity of payload. Integration of the Precision Guidance Kit (HGK) and the Winged Guidance Kit (UPS) to ANKA + is also expected.
