A developer of globally competitive, innovative high-tech products, STM Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret A.Ş. has now recorded its first export success in the field of tactical mini UAV systems, after having made its mark with Naval Platforms.
KARGU platforms are designed to be operated in line with the “Man-in-the-Loop” principle. Each mission (both ISR and Precision Strike) is performed under the complete control of the human operators, limiting the platform’s autonomy to navigational purposes only. KARGU platforms are designed to be operated by day or night, through EO and IR sensors. The system has “mission abort”, “return to home” and “self-destruct functions” as well as jamming countermeasures for signal disruption.
STM’s R&D programs for the Swarm UAV Operations are also successfully continuing. The KERKES Project by STM, which will enable UAV platforms to operate independently of GPS, is continuing and the tests are looking very promising so far. Lastly, it is confirmed by STM that there are works in the way for developing multiple different warheads for KARGU and ALPAGU Attack UAV Systems.
