The Laser-Guided Mini Missile System METE, developed by Roketsan can be launched from 40-millimetre new-generation grenade launchers and is making a difference with its effectiveness beyond the maximum range of existing conventional grenade launchers.
METE, which can be fired from a grenade launcher by a single operative, is designed to be integrated into the turrets of mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Unmanned Land Vehicles (ULV) and Unmanned Marine Vehicles (UMV) thanks to its lightweight and small size.
Roketsan set out to develop this system to increase the combat effectiveness of security forces engaging in urban warfare, against threats such as snipers, multiple targets and enemy reinforcements.
Weighing approximately 1 kg, the METE can be used on many platforms. The development of the system is continuing. It has a semi-active laser seeker with a strike precision of approximately 1-meter CEP, and a range of 1,000+ meters.
With a mini seeker and a mini control drive system, METE is directed toward the target marked by a laser pointer, providing effective strike power against light structures, unarmoured ground vehicles, unprotected targets such as possible sniper positions, and targets of opportunity.

Working with the vision to take a leading role in the global defence sector with indigenous, reliable and pioneering rocket and missile solutions, Roketsan Missiles Industries was founded on 14 June 1988, by the decision of the Defense Industries Executive Committee. With its indigenous products and designs, 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 in its facilities at Ankara. With over 3400 staff, 1800 engineers and its self-financing R&D projects, Roketsan continues designing and developing products indigenous to Turkey, with the aim to become the country’s biggest technology army.
