Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank stated that the CATS system developed by ASELSAN has been successfully tested in UAVs and has started to be used actively.



Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank visited ASELSAN's Akyurt facilities on 20 March 2021. Minister Varank, Deputy Minister of Industry and Technology Mehmet Fatih Kacır and ASELSAN General Manager Haluk Görgün were also present during the visit to the facilities where ASELSAN's Microelectronics Guidance and Electro-Optics Sector Presidency is located. During the visit, Minister Varank, who received information about the systems developed and being developed by ASELSAN, examined the work done.

During his visit, Minister Varank received information about the electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system CATS developed by ASELSAN. Varank, who made some statements, reminded the embargo applied by Canada for the imported system used for the same purpose in Bayraktar TB2 SİHAs (Armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), which was developed nationally and uniquely by Baykar. Varank stated that the electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system CATS, developed by ASELSAN, has been successfully tested in UAVs and has started to be used actively.

Minister Varank stated that ASELSAN has very important capabilities especially in the field of aviation. Noting that the designed and developed systems are applied to the platforms we have, Varank emphasized that both our platform manufacturers and ASELSAN, which supports them, have done very successful works.

"Bayraktar TB2 fired with ASELSAN CATS"

In November 2020, Bayraktar TB2 SİHA (Armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), which was developed nationally and uniquely by Baykar, successfully performed its first test firing with the electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system CATS developed by ASELSAN.

Turkey's national sihai TB2 Bayraktar, the ongoing integration work Aselsan CATS electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system threw yesterday signed an important test. Taking off from Baykar Flight and Training Center with MAM-L (Mini Intelligent Ammunition) ammunition developed by Roketsan on its wings, Bayraktar TB2 successfully fired with laser targeting made by the national camera system CATS.
