ASELSAN SAKA-1 UAV System Flight Tests Successfully Performed

Integration studies for the SAKA-1 UAV system developed by ASELSAN were completed and flight tests were carried out successfully.

For the first time in our country, ASELSAN launched the SAKA Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) weighing less than 500 grams, which includes a unique, domestic and national communication modem, flight controller and image processing unit hardware, software and algorithms. At this stage, integration studies for the aircraft weighing less than 500 grams, which includes the original aircraft platform, propulsion system and flight controller hardware, software and algorithms, have been completed and flight tests have been carried out successfully.

Another mini UAV system ASELSAN is working on is SAKA-2. SAKA-1 UAV system, whose development activities are carried out in parallel with the SAKA-2 UAV system 950 gr have weight. The SAKA-1 UAV platform, which will be larger in size compared to the SAKA-2 UAV, will also be used by special units. SAKA-2 UAV system 3-axis It will have a native display system. The SAKA-1 UAV system will also have a domestic solution imaging system. The SAKA UAV system will have the ability to move with image reference and will be able to return in case of loss of connection. SAKA UAV systems will be able to remain operational for a long time in the field thanks to their replaceable battery systems.

ASELSAN continues its studies on SAKA UAV systems. May 2022It will present it to the attention of its users by completing it in .

ASELSAN showcased its smart Nano Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (Nano-UAV), which it has been working on for a while, for the first time at TEKNOFEST'19. The system, which was unveiled, was later named the SAKA UAV family. SAKA Nano-UAV, which can perform indoor and outdoor missions for reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence purposes, will significantly increase the operational capabilities of special units.

It will be possible to increase the operational efficiency of the TAF within the scope of reconnaissance and surveillance activities with domestic and national SAKA-1 UAVs, which have the infrastructure that can also be adapted to the herd concept.

SAKA-1 UAV minimum 25 minutes flight time2 km communication rangecustomizable software infrastructure and local, national and secure communication system It is planned to provide superiority to foreign origin comparable products. It is stated that the serial production of SAKA UAVs will be worked with DASAL Aviation Technologies, ASELSAN's subsidiary in the field of multi-rotor UAVs.

ASELSAN General Manager Prof. Dr. Haluk GÖRGÜN, regarding SAKA UAV, “ASELSAN has implemented the SAKA Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) weighing less than 500 grams, which includes a unique, domestic and national communication modem, flight controller and image processing unit hardware, software and algorithms for the first time in our country. It will be possible to increase the operational efficiency of the Turkish Armed Forces within the scope of reconnaissance and surveillance activities with domestic and national SAKA UAVs, which have the infrastructure that can also be adapted to the herd concept. made statements.
