Defense Technologies Engineering and Trade Inc. Negotiations have progressed with 3 countries for the export of the kamikaze drone KARGU, which was produced by STM at its campus in Ostim Technopark. The company is preparing to export its first in autonomous drone systems soon.
In the statement made by STM, it was stated that the company kamikaze drone KARGU had a great interest in the international arena with its performance in the field during the use of the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK).
Participating in tests and trials in different countries for export markets, KARGU was appreciated for its performance. The Kamikaze drone has been tried in the tropical, desert, tundra climatic conditions in this process and has revealed that it can successfully serve.
As for the export kargu The statement stated that the conduct of negotiations with third countries, Turkey's largely conducted high-level talks are mature in the friendly and brotherly countries. It is informed that STM is preparing to sign the first export success by completing the negotiations on the export of autonomous drone systems recently.
Produced in Ostim Technopark
Having received over 500 KARGU orders to be made available to the security forces, STM started delivering them in batches. The production of striking unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), developed by STM including the KARGUs, whose deliveries have started, is known at the company campus in Ostim Technopark.
The engineer team working at the campus works mainly on tactical and autonomous systems.
In this context, the campus, which hosts studies on autonomous drones TOGAN, ALPAGU and KARGU in the product range of the company, also offers the company a mass production infrastructure for these products.
In the facility where additional measures are taken for the health of employees against the new type of coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, intensive work is being carried out for the Autonomous Rotary Wing Beater UAV KARGU orders that have recently entered the TAF inventory.
Tests of all versions of KARGU offered to the TAF are carried out precisely, in accordance with quality standards. In addition, the returns from the field and the gains from the production process are used to create a more effective KARGU.
While the R&D and production activities are carried out in the campus, the information coming from the field is evaluated especially in terms of reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
STM other members of TOC and ALPAGA with Turkey's UAV technological level and about the support that reaches further up is aiming sihai and pull-menu of the new production facilities and products with the Karg family.
Can work in herd
The first applications for the use of KARGU in a herd, which can easily work alone with its highly developed computer vision possibilities, were also carried out last year. More than 20 KARGU platforms have been made to work in herd with the works carried out.
Studies on this subject continue especially for improving herd algorithms and performing different tasks. The KERKES project is ongoing so that the drone flock can function without any problems in any environment. After the completion of this project, KARGU kamikaze drones, which have gained full herd ability in about 1-1,5 years, will be offered to the use of the TAF.
It will be integrated into different platforms
Studies are also carried out on the integration of KARGU in different platforms.
KARGU, which has been used by the Turkish Armed Forces and gendarmerie unions until now, will be able to work with various platforms, especially maritime platforms.
Activities are also carried out for KARGU to operate with armored ground vehicles and autonomous land systems.
