SAKA Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Project is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) development project that can be easily transported, can be integrated with land platforms, and can perform indoor and outdoor missions for reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence purposes.

During the development, the aircraft platform design was updated and brought closer to the final product configuration, depending on the sub-units used, the structural analyzes performed and the new functions added.

Within the scope of the project, activities are carried out with two different aircraft configurations, SAKA-1 (650 grams) and SAKA-2 (950 grams).

SAKA Aircraft System

At this stage, integration studies have been completed for SAKA-1 and SAKA-2, which include the original aircraft platform, propulsion system, foldable arms and replaceable battery, compact aircraft platform and flight controller hardware, software and algorithms, and flight tests have been carried out successfully.

Sub-systems are being nationalized, and it is aimed to nationalize the data link system and image processing unit together with the original flight controller, to reduce foreign dependency and to realize product capabilities with lighter and smaller aircraft platforms.

Within the scope of armored vehicle and Unmanned Ground Vehicle projects carried out by ASELSAN, activities for the system integration of small-sized aircraft, which are needed to monitor the departure routes of land vehicles from certain distances, have also been initiated. Work has begun on the design of a mechanism that can meet this need, be integrated into different land platforms, and enable the aircraft to take off automatically without the need for manual intervention.

With the nationalization of the Ground Control Station Software and Data Link System, the authenticity and locality rate of the SAKA system will increase.

Motion detection, target tracking, etc. Development efforts are also underway to enable the aircraft to perform image-based missions in closed spaces, independent of GNSS signals.

With a minimum flight time of 25 minutes, a data and image transmission range of 3 km, a unique flight controller and ground control station software infrastructure that can be customized according to needs, and a communication system with a swarm infrastructure that is resistant to electronic warfare threats, it will outperform foreign-origin products.
