“AKINCI” Documentary, in which the development stages of Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA, Turkey's first offensive unmanned aerial vehicle, are viewed for months, will be broadcast on Baykar's YouTube channel on Sunday, May 24, 2020, the first day of Ramadan Feast, at 20.23.
a critical threshold in Turkey's defense industry will lead to one of the more important projects which exceed the tiha AKINCI Bayraktar (offensive UAV) development work was the subject of a documentary. Bayraktar raiders process of developing the first unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Turkey's offensive class and bikers "AKINCI" the name given to a documentary series reveals for the first time.
Baykar Technical Manager Selçuk Bayraktar published two trailers promoting the documentary on his social media account. The documentary, in which Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA's critical production phases and development studies are explained, will be broadcast for the first time on Baykar's YouTube channel 'Baykar Technologies' on Sunday, May 24, 2020, the first day of Ramadan Feast, at 20.23:XNUMX.
Filming lasted 6 months
For the documentary directed by Altuğ Gültan and Burak Aksoy, shootings were carried out for months in Çorlu Airfield Command where Baykar Milli S / İHA R&D and Production Facilities in Istanbul and Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA were carried out. The documentary project, which started in February 2019, was completed in about 15 months. The documentary focuses on the last 6 months of the tough and busy working period until December 2019, 6, when Bayraktar AKINCI made its first flight.
Bayraktar and Engineers Tell
In the documentary, Baykar Technical Manager Selçuk Bayraktar and the leaders of engineering units describe the work done in interviews with them. The process of developing an aircraft with high-tech documentary together for the first time in Turkey will meet the audience.
Two Raiders Will Fly
The first prototype of Bayraktar AKINCI, PT-1, made its second flight as part of the System Verification Test on January 10, 2020. The second Bayraktar AKINCI, whose integration was completed recently and named as PT-2, was sent to Çorlu Airfield Command where the test activities continue. Air and ground tests of Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA will be carried out together with two prototypes.
Turkey will be one of three countries in the world
Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA, developed with Baykar's experience and technology in developing unmanned aerial vehicles, will make Turkey one of the first 3 countries in the world to develop unmanned aerial vehicles in this class. Bayraktar AKINCI, which can stay in the air for 24 hours and has a service ceiling of 40 thousand feet, stands out with its useful load carrying capacity of 400 kilograms, 950 kilograms internal and 1.350 kilograms external. Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA, which has a take-off weight of 5.500 kilograms, rises to the sky with 2 turboprop engines with 450 HP power. Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA is the same zamIt is designed to fly in different configurations for engines that produce 2×750 HP and 2×240 HP power developed by TEI with domestic facilities.
Air-Air Mission Will Do
The aircraft platform, which has a 20-meter wingspan with its unique twisted wing structure, will also provide high flight safety thanks to its fully automatic flight control and 3 redundant auto pilot system. Bayraktar AKINCI, which will be able to perform duties with the national ammunition it will carry thanks to its useful load capacity, will be a great power factor with its ability to fire national ammunition developed for strategic targets such as SOM cruise missile. Bayraktar AKINCI, which will have high situational awareness with the domestic production AESA radar to be found in the nose section, will be able to perform operations with Gökdoğan and Bozdoğan air-air ammunition developed nationally by TÜBİTAK SAGE. The aircraft, which will carry critical loads such as EO / IR camera, AESA radar, Beyond Line of Sight (satellite) communication and electronic support systems, will also have advanced artificial intelligence features.
Will Fly With Artificial Intelligence
It will be able to collect information by recording the data it receives from the sensors and the cameras on the aircraft through 6 artificial intelligence computers it will keep. This artificial intelligence system, which can detect the lean, upright and heading angles of the aircraft without the need for any external sensors or Global Positioning System (GPS), zamwill provide environmental awareness by using geographic information at the moment. The advanced artificial intelligence system will have the ability to make decisions by processing the data it obtains. This artificial intelligence system, which can detect land targets that cannot be detected by the human eye, will enable Bayraktar AKINCI to be used more effectively.
Will Be The Leader With Radar Capability
With the locally developed AESA radar, Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA, which can perform tasks with high situational awareness, will be able to take images with the Synthetic Aperture Radar even in bad weather conditions where electro-optical systems have difficulty in taking images. The aircraft platform, which will include the meteorology radar and the multi-purpose weather radar, will be the leader in its class with these capabilities.
