Head of Defense Industry Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir stated that the domestic UAVs have gained a new capability and announced that the stray mine detection studies were successfully carried out with the SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) radar integrated into the ANKA UAV of the Naval Forces Command.
MİLDAR SAR/GMTI Radar developed by Meteksan Defense was integrated into ANKA UAV developed by TAI in 2021. With a maximum range of 27 km, MILSAR domestic UAVs (ANKA / Bayraktar TB2 et al.) can be integrated into the area where the E/O gimbal system is located, without the need for structural modifications.
MILSAR is a synthetic aperture (Synthetic Aperture Radar / SAR) and moving target detection (Moving Target Indicator / MTI) radar. SAR and MTI capable radars are indispensable sensors for reconnaissance and surveillance aircraft and satellites, as they can continue to provide high resolution images even in weather conditions where electro-optical sensors are ineffective. The MTI feature, on the other hand, comes into play at the point of monitoring the activities that need to be followed on the ground, which is one of the main reasons why UAVs stay in the air for hours.
