Acceptance tests for Turkey’s defense giant Aselsan’s new electro-optical reconnaissance and surveillance system for naval platforms, named SeaEye-AHTAPOT, were completed.
The new system was created for the Turkish Naval Forces’ electro-optical director requirements, according to the information received by Anadolu Agency.
Currently, the army uses Aselsan’s ASELFLIR-300D system, and the new director project started in 2015. Deliveries of the new system will be completed by 2025.
It is expected to be used by friend and ally countries of Turkey in the coming years.
SeaEye-AHTAPOT, which was equipped with a laser pointer, can track multiple targets.
The system has a high-performance thermal imager, high-performance day TV and spotter camera, eye-safe laser range finder, optional laser designator, low failure rate and high survivability, according to Aselsan’s web-site.
