Turkey’s Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB) has unveiled MIR, an unmanned naval vehicle designed to fight enemy submarines from the surface.

The naval drone was developed by Aselsan and Sefine.

Ismail Demir, head of SSB, told the press that the MIR can be used autonomously, in a remote control operations or manned with a crew. It will have interoperability features to work with other manned or unmanned assets.

MIR will have electronic-warfare (EW) capabilities, sonar and a range of missiles developed by Roketsan. It will be able to perform search and rescue (SAR) operations.

“The MIR will enter the military’s inventory as soon as its advanced sonar has been integrated into the system,” Demir said.
