Turkey’s Defense Technologies Engineering and Trade Inc. (STM) completed initial deliveries of the mini-spotter unmanned aerial system (UAS), TOGAN, to the Turkish Army.
TOGAN has a unique flight control system designed for tactical level reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence missions.
“We made the first deliveries of TOGAN, our rotary-wing national spotter UAV, which we developed for reconnaissance, surveillance and intelligence purposes,” Head of the Presidency of Defense Industries, Ismail Demir, announced on Twitter.
STM General Manager Özgür Güleryüz said that the TOGAN can perform joint operations with other STM's UAVs. STM plans to improve the capabilities of our tactical mini-UAVs to operate in areas without GPS and to perform missions without being affected by the enemy electronic warfare threat.
TOGAN has the ability to track fixed and moving targets and to automatically switch mission supported by indigenous and real-time image processing and deep learning algorithms.
The TOGAN UAS is comprised of "Micro UAV Platform" and "Ground Control Station" components.
