ATMACA anti-ship missile
The ATMACA Missile, which can be used in all weather conditions, is effective against still and moving targets with its resistance to countermeasures, target updating, retargeting, mission termination capacity and advanced mission planning system (3D routing). ATMACA, just like the SOM developed by TÜBİTAK-SAGE and produced by ROKETSAN, can rise to a higher altitude when it approaches the target and dive into the target ship 'from the top'.
ATMACA has Global Positioning System, Inertial Measurement Unit, Barometric Altimeter, Radar Altimeter capabilities and locates its target with its active radar scanner with high accuracy. The hawk missile threatens its target beyond the line of sight with its 350 mm diameter, 1,4 meters wingspan, 220+ km range and 250 kg High Explosive Penetration Warhead capacity. Data link capability gives ATMACA target update, re-attack and mission termination features.
AKYA Heavy Torpedo
The works initiated within ArMerKom to meet the 533mm heavy torpedo requirement of the Naval Forces Command with national means, passed to a concrete stage in 2009 with the approval of the Turkish General Staff and the National Heavy Torpedo Development Project (AKYA) contract was signed with the SSM (today: SSB) and ArMerKom- It was signed between TÜBİTAK and Roketsan. AKYA's first test shot was carried out in the summer of 2013. For the first firing test, a 533mm torpedo shell was placed on a floating platform by Dz.KK. The sonar system of AKYA, whose design work is under the responsibility of ArMerKom, is developed by TÜBİTAK, while the warhead and guidance system are developed by Roketsan.
