Turkish defense giant ASELSAN succeeds in torpedo marine tests
ANKARA - Anadolu Agency
Turkey’s leading defense company ASELSAN has completed its test for the prototype of an anti-torpedo torpedo, a countermeasure system, successfully, according to the company.
The most effective defense against torpedo threats for submarines and ships is provided by a combination of soft-kill and hard-kill methods.
ASELSAN, Turkey’s premier defense systems producer, has been working on the development of these technologies.
The system detected the surface targets with the help of the sonar seeker and geared toward its target in the tests conducted in Turkey for the first time.
It “can cooperate with ZARGANA and HIZIR torpedo countermeasure systems in order to maximize defense capability against torpedo threats.”
It is expected to be one of the most important underwater weapons of the future.
