President of the Turkish Presidency Defense Industry. Dr. İsmail DEMİR made statements about the National Low Altitude Air Defense Missile System HİSAR-A and the National Medium Altitude Air Defense Missile System HİSAR-O.
Emphasizing that HİSAR-O is on the field with its specific components, President DEMİR said, “Because there is a need for HİSAR-O more than HİSAR-A, it carries some elements in HİSAR-A to HİSAR-O and We are going to a policy change such as keeping the number of in a limited way. It is possible to deliver HİSAR-A immediately, the mass production phase has started, but since there is a transformation process to HİSAR-O, there will be a chain towards HİSAR-O. But if you say that mass production has started in practice, yes, we can use it. ” found comments
HİSAR-A and HİSAR-O Air Defense Systems
In order to overcome Turkey's low and medium altitude air defense needs, Low Altitude Air Defense Missile System Project (Hisar-A) and Medium Altitude Air Defense Missile System Project (Hisar-O) design and development period of the contract related institutions on 20 June 2011 signed between.
Low Altitude Air Defense Missile System (HİSAR-A) and Medium Altitude Air Defense Missile System (HİSAR-O); It can destroy the destruction of fixed and rotary wing aircraft, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and airborne missiles.
HİSAR-A is designed to neutralize fixed and rotary wing aircraft, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and air-to-land missiles up to 15+ km range for air defense of moving units and critical facilities.
HİSAR-A; Self-Propelled Autonomous Low Altitude Air Defense Missile System consists of Missile Launch System (FFS), Low Altitude Missile and Missile Transport and Loading System that can be fired from both HİSAR-A and HİSAR-O Systems.
HİSAR-O Medium Altitude Air Defense System
As part of the air defense of fixed troops and critical facilities, HİSAR-O ensures that fixed and rotary wing aircraft, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and air-to-land missiles up to 25+ km range. HİSAR-O is planned to be included in the inventory by 2021.
HİSAR-O has the advantage of flexible deployment thanks to its distributed architecture, and consists of the Fire Control Center, FFS, Medium Altitude Missile, Medium Altitude Air Defense Radar, Electro-Optical System, Early Warning Centers Interface Link-16 System and Missile Transport and Loading System.
