    Turkish defense industry working on [electromagnetic] armed drone launch [catapult] system for vessels

    DAILY SABAH WITH AA
    ISTANBUL
    PublishedJanuary 24, 2019

    The Turkish defense sector is working on a new system that will enable launching domestically developed UAVs from vessels; the technology will contribute to the effectiveness of the Turkish Armed Forces and provide very important capabilities


    The Turkish defense industry is developing an electromagnetic launch system for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that would allow ships to launch drones without a runway, increasing naval platform deterrence. The Turkish navy operates a series of local aerial platforms, including ANKA and the Bayraktar Tactical Block 2 (TB2). But the aircraft can only take off using conventional runways. The U.S. and China already use electromagnetic launch systems aboard some of their aircraft carriers. The system is simple to use, cost-effective and boasts high-power launch capacities. The Turkish defense industry has been working on electromagnetic rail guns, which are based on the same principle, for some time now.

    The project has enabled the development of electromagnetic launch systems because of common features, including power supply, high current/voltage switching and control systems.

    Potentially, electromagnetic launch systems can make a huge contribution to the effectiveness of the Turkish Navy and its ability to operate drones. For instance, the Bayraktar TB2 will be effective at a range of 100-150 kilometers when launched from a navy vessel. This will significantly boost the navy's security and deterrence capabilities in the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas.

    Thus, a new UAV development process will not take years, and Turkey will acquire a system that can be integrated into existing national platforms.

    Yeteknoloji AŞ, who introduced Turkey's first electromagnetic rail guns, also manufactures components for the electromagnetic launch system.

    In response to the need that may emerge with the navy's use of UAVs, the company decided to develop an electromagnetic catapult. Yeteknoloji AŞ has launched a conceptual design project in this regard and aims to launch a 750-kilogram UAV with an electromagnetic launch system within the next two to three years.

    Yeteknoloji AŞ General Manager Fazıl Hızal told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the electromagnetic launch systems have rapidly been adapted for different applications, including weapons, like railguns, and launch systems, said Hızal, adding that such technologies should receive more attention due to the country's needs.

    Noting that the U.S. and China are working with electromagnetic technology, Hızal said the U.S. is already using this technology. It can launch aircraft and UAVs using an electromagnetic launch system.

    "China is also expected to start using this technology soon. We, as a country, must also join this technology race. We have technologies that can be part of this race. We can make the best UAVs in the world and produce all the components of the electromagnetic launch system in Turkey," he said. "So, we can develop our own system and launch UAVs from vessels. This technology will provide our armed forces with very important capabilities."

    Bayraktar TB2 armed drones, produced by Baykar and operational since 2015, have been used to support Turkey's fight against terror on its southern border and during cross-border operations in Syria.

    The domestically developed drone is the first and only armed UAV in the Turkish Armed Forces' (TSK) inventory.

    With its advanced electronics, software, aerodynamic, design, submarine systems and flight automation and performance, the Bayraktar TB2 is one of the most advanced UAV systems in its class.

    Performing active reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence flights, the Bayraktar TB2 has the ability to transmit images to operation centers without delay and engage targets.

    It boasts a service ceiling of 8,239 meters (27,030 feet) and a flight endurance of 24 hours. It can carry 150 kilograms (330 pounds) of payload and can be operated day and night.

    On the other hand, ANKA, an advanced Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) class UAV, performs day and night, all-weather reconnaissance, target detection/identification and intelligence missions, featuring autonomous flight capabilities, including automatic takeoff and landing.

          Story says production will start in 2033. In addition very early in the process. So, they may have in mind "400" TF-X's. Yet, nothing has been ordered and won't be for many years.

                Turkish Aerospace Industries is in talks with Ukraine for the possible sale of an Advance Version of the ANKA for SEAD missions. The UCAV would be capable of launching the Roketsan SOM stand-off cruise missile. Ukraine previously purchased 6 Armed Baykar TB2's.

                  Turkey begins testing the TBİTAK SAGE GOKTUG (Gİ KTM-2) Air to Air missile on its F-16's. The GOKTUG is Turkey's equivalent of the AIM-9X and a mile stone for the Turkish Defence Industry.

                  Turkey's Air to Air missile programs were first announced at IDEF 2017:

                  The missiles use an Aselsan IIR seeker head.

                  The missiles are equipped with thrust vectoring capability for superior maneuverability and off boresight launch capability. Both missile uses smokeless solid propellant rocket motors.

                  The missiles will be used with Turkish F-16's that have indigenous mission computers and the future TF-X.
