National Tactical UAV System Vestel KARAYEL

KARAYEL Tactical UAV System is the first and only Tactical Unmanned Aircraft designed and manufactured in accordance with NATO's 'Airworthiness at the Civil Airspace' Standard STANAG-4671 for exploration and surveillance.

KARAYEL system has a unique triple redundant diffused avionic architecture that provides protection against all kinds of uncontrolled breaking. With this feature, VESTEL has carried systematic error safety, which has been used only in manned aviation worldwide, to an unmanned aerial vehicle for the first time with KARAYEL. Thanks to the aluminum mesh on the aircraft composite structure, it has lightning protection feature.

In case of frosting conditions, the 'Ice Removal System' is used, which automatically detects this and goes into operation. With this feature, KARAYEL shows resistance against all kinds of weather conditions and shows superior performance in harsh weather conditions. It has the ability to detect and diagnose the target with the camera system it carries to conduct aerial reconnaissance and surveillance, and to direct laser guided ammunition with the marker systems on it.
