A new breath in the UAV industry with the investment of Coşkunöz Holding kazanTurkey's innovative UAV manufacturer, UAVERA, will showcase its capabilities in its field at IDEF 2021, the 15th International Defense Industry Fair. UAVERA aims to be the market leader in Turkey with its vertical landing and take-off under-cloud UAV and Target UAV systems.
International Defense Industry Fair IDEF'21 will be held at Istanbul TÜYAP Fair and Congress Center between 17-20 August under the auspices of the Presidency and the Ministry of National Defense. UAVERA, the UAV manufacturer within the body of Coşkunöz Holding, is also participating in the fair. UAVERA will exhibit the state-of-the-art Çağatay Unmanned Aerial Vehicle designed with national means at the fair.
Çağatay Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
Setting out with the aim of developing domestic and national UAV and flight control systems, UAVERA's Çağatay Unmanned Aerial Vehicle CGT50 stands out with its distinctive features in its own lane. These UAVs, which can take off and take off vertically without the need for a runway, can then activate their gasoline engine and perform their duties. Equipped with domestic software and controllers, UAVs can operate fully autonomously in harsh weather conditions. Çağatay UAV, which is in the under-cloud UAV class, is the leader in its class with up to 6 hours of flight time and a communication range of up to 150 kilometers. Çağatay UAV reinforces this leadership with its satellite control, feel-and-avoid, anti-collision and swarm capabilities added in 2021. Çağatay UAV has a serious advantage of ease of use, as it can be easily made ready for use by only 3 personnel and can take off from any place without the need for a runway. Currently, UAVERA, which has the capacity to produce 3 systems and 6 aircraft and its sub-components per month, works in cooperation with DGCA in order to provide products and services for civilian use.
Çağatay İHA is integrated into HAVELSAN HARBİYE System
Çağatay UAV, which will be exhibited at IDEF 2021 Fair, is integrated into the state-of-the-art "Operation Information Management and Integration" system, HARBIYE, produced by HAVELSAN engineers. Harbiye is used in the harmonious realization of activities that will facilitate the critical decision-making process in the rapid and accurate sharing of information on the battlefield, situational awareness, creating an operational picture.
Thanks to a project carried out by HAVELSAN and UAVERA teams, Çağatay İHA was integrated into HAVELSAN's systems. In this way, Çağatay UAV will be able to track, command and control as an element in the field by the users of the HARBİYE system during flight, and sub-cloud reconnaissance and surveillance air support will be provided to the field teams.
Çağatay UAV Can Be Controlled From Satellite
Thanks to a study carried out in 2021, Çağatay UAV can now be controlled without distance restrictions. As a result of the R&D project carried out in cooperation with INMARSAT, COBHAM, A-TECHSYN and UAVERA and lasting approximately one year, it has succeeded in becoming the world's first satellite-controlled UAV system in its class. In this way, Çağatay UAVs will be easily controlled via TÜRKSAT satellites with an uninterrupted and reliable connection.
Innovative solutions at UAVERA
Technologies developed by UAVERA with domestic and national resources are used in Çağatay UAV. In this way, the cost of the product is lower than that of its imported competitors, while the system can be configured to suit different types of tasks required by a wide range of civil and military applications. In this way, it can produce systems in configurations that can operate in different areas, from the surveillance of forest areas to the control of oil and energy lines, from the control of smuggling activities in coastal areas to regional monitoring for detection purposes in search and rescue activities, and to ensure facility and environmental security.
Goal: to be a leader in the development of technology
Produced by UAVERA with the support of Coşkunöz Holding, Çağatay UAV set out to be the market leader and technology developer in the small vertical take-off UAV and target UAV market in Turkey. UAVERA, which plans to make domestic and national production by developing optimum products in line with the needs of all sector stakeholders, aims to be able to respond to limited needs with the rental system.
