Unmanned Systems Asia 2019: Aselsan hits the ground running in Singapore

10th April 2019 - 11:00 GMT | by Helen Haxell in Singapore


Turkish first-time exhibitor Aselsan demonstrated its unmanned ground portfolio on the show floor at Unmanned Systems Asia 2019.

On display was the company’s UKAP, a remote-controlled weapon platform. The UGV will eventually be known by a different name, a company spokesperson explained.

The 2,500kg vehicle’s development began in 2018 and whilst a prototype is on display, the programme is likely to be completed by Q4 of this year.

Manufactured completely in Turkey, the UGV will be sold to the Turkish armed forces but the likely quantity at this stage is unknown and discussions with the services are closely guarded.
