ATMACA Anti-Ship Missile Successfully Tested

The ATMACA Guided Missile, developed locally and nationally, was successfully tested on July 1, 2020, to meet the needs of our Navy's ship-to-ship cruise missile.

Test shot successfully executed in Sinop offshore haberxnumx'also published. Presidency Defense Industry President Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir said, “Our sparrow flew long this time. "Our ATMACA cruise missile, which fulfills its functions perfectly by successfully hitting the target at a distance of 220 km, is getting ready to enter the inventory."

ATMACA Guided Missile qualification shot was successfully performed by our TCG KINALIADA (F-514) Corvette off Sinop in November 2019. ATMACA Guided Bullet was fired for the first time from our surface platform.

In September 2019, firing tests of the ATMACA guided missile were carried out from the land-based launcher at the Sinop Shooting Range. In the footage shared by the Presidency of Defense Industry, we saw the ATMACA guided missile flying close to the sea (SeaSkimming).

ATMACA will be used instead of US-based Harpoon missiles used as surface-to-surface missile systems. ATMACA cruise missiles are produced locally by Roketsan, fire control systems and other equipment ASELSAN. ATMACAs will be integrated into MİLGEMs and will further increase our deterrence in the seas.

As in SOM missile, development work of the ATMACA Missile powered by Micro Turbo product TR40 Turbojet Engine has been completed in Roketsan main contractor. In the project, domestic companies and institutions take part with the systems of Aselsan (RF seeker header) and ArMerKom (fire control system and operator console prototypes).

ATMACA Missile, which can be used in all weather conditions, is effective against stationary and moving targets with its resistance to countermeasures, target update, retargeting, mission termination capacity and advanced mission planning system (3D routing). ATMACA, just like the cruise missile SOM produced by TÜBİTAK-SAGE, is approaching the target. zamthe moment it ascends to a higher altitude, it dives 'from the top' to the target ship.

ATMACA has Global Positioning System, Inertial Measurement Unit, Barometric Altimeter, Radar Altimeter capabilities and finds its target with active accuracy radar scanner. Hawk missile, 350 mm in diameter. It has a wingspan of 1,4 meters. Atmaca 220+ km range and high explosive particle equivalent to 88 kg TNT threaten its target beyond the observation line with its effective warhead cap capacity. Data link capability provides ATMACA with target update, re-attack and task termination features.
