HİSAR A+ and HİSAR o+ air defense missile systems, which are an important step in Turkey's layered air defense, were delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces with all their elements. The HİSAR O+ air defense system had destroyed the high-altitude high-speed target in the last acceptance shot before entering the inventory in December 2021. The HİSAR O+ system, with all its elements, was delivered to the Land Forces Command at full capacity and started to operate.
After the Missile Launching Systems working in coordination with the Firing Management Device in the HİSAR A+ Project and the missiles entered the inventory, the Self-Propelled Autonomous Low Altitude Air Defense Missile System (Autonomous HİSAR A+), which includes all the necessary subsystems to be able to function alone, was also delivered. As of July 2021, all elements of the HİSAR A+ System were delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces. Autonomous HİSAR A+ will perform the air defense mission of armored mechanized and mobile units. The system comes to the fore with its ability to move in difficult terrain conditions, change positions quickly, short reaction times and perform a task alone.
Vice President Fuat Oktay stated that the deliveries of HİSAR O+'s IIR guided missiles would be completed in 2022 in the Presidency's presentation on the 2022 budget to the Parliamentary Plan and Budget Committee. Within the scope of TEKNOFEST'21, it was learned that the acceptance tests of the HİSAR O+ air defense missile system will begin in October 2021. According to the serial production contract for the HİSAR O+ Air Defense System, the delivery of the system is targeted to be completed by 2024.
Developed with domestic and national resources, the HİSAR O+ System will perform point and regional air defense missions with its distributed and flexible architectural capability. The HİSAR O+ System has an organizational infrastructure in battery and battalion structures. System; It consists of Fire Control Center, Missile Launch System, Medium Altitude Air Defense Radar, Electro Optical System, Infrared Seeker Missile and RF Seeker Missile.
The HİSAR-O+ system has 18 (3 launcher vehicles) at battery level and 54 (9 launcher vehicles) interceptor missiles at battalion level as standard. The system, which has a fighter jet detection and tracking distance of 40-60 km, can track >60 targets. The system has a maximum range of 25 km with IIR guided missiles and 25-35 km with RF guided missiles.
The HİSAR O+ Air Defense Missile System was able to destroy the high-speed target at high altitude in the last acceptance shot before entering the inventory. Thus, HİSAR O+ has completed its acceptance activities and is ready for duty with all its elements and at full capacity. HİSAR A+ was first delivered to HİSAR air defense missile systems. The long-range air defense system, SİPER, which continues with test firing, is expected to be ready for use in 2023.
