Subsequently, inthe serial production phase of Anka-A would be launched and additional 10 systems meaning 30 air vehicles built for the Turkish Air Force.
The sandwich skin structure is reinforced by composite or metallic frames, ribs, and supports.
Satellite-controlled Anka-S UAV fires guided munitions
The Anka sports a wingspan of over Identification and communication units and interface computers are employed in order to establish real time wide band communication and provide test and diagnostics functions. They can operate at distances of up to km, using LoS data-links. Cookies used for the essential operation of the site have already been set. Retrieved 25 November Propelled by a pusher type heavy fuel engine, the aircraft is furnished with fuselage fuel tanks and fuel system, ice protection system, environmental control system, lighting system, redundant electrical system with battery backup, and harness system.
All three have a A total of 6 aircraft were planned to be delivered in The base, unarmed Anka is designed primarily with surveillance, patrol, target tracking, identification and designation and is appropriately equipped with various optics, cameras and sensors for the role.
The Anka was born of an indigenous initiative by the Turkish authorities to supply a homegrown UAV solution to its ever-expanding military requirements. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
Retrieved 4 January There is another fuselage bulge at amidships under the fuselage though this appears to be an optional fitting. Armed with a 3kg warhead, able to penetrate mm of armour, the CIRIT can be fired either from a Smart Launcher designed by Roketsan or from a standard pod, in twin or quad launcher configuration.
The first Anka is expected sometime in With a service ceiling of All flight critical equipment are dual or triple redundant and emergency modes of operational scenarios are taken into consideration for fail safe design. Payload volume for all is l, and payload capacity kilogrammes. Archived from the original on 26 November It might have more powerful turbo engines or it could have gas turbine engine.
uab Unmanned aerial vehicle Unmanned combat air vehicle. The first flight of the latter, which can operate at up to 40,ft, onboard an ANKA-S is expected to take place in mid Areas covered include general ratings, speed assessments, and relative ranges based on distances between major cities.
During the maiden flight, Anka-B successfully performed “basic shakedown” and auto-landing.
However, it is expected that this version will support air-to-surface missiles and sport a more powerful engine. An air traffic radio is also integrated in the kav system for the integration of the aircraft into the civilian airspace. Anka Block B passed The S-model improves flying distances and operating altitudes over the original Anka-A systems.
The nose cone of the Anka is well curved for a smooth aerodynamic appearance. The whole composite airframe is composed of a monoblock fuselage, detachable wing and V-Tail, retractable landing gear, redundant control surfaces, avionics and payload bays and service doors.
Archived from the original on 13 January September znka The first Anka-S variant went airborne for the first time.
UAV operations are supported by uva sophisticated ground control system with complete redundancy, developed by a domestic defence company Savronik.
Retrieved 5 January This arrangement supplied the base Anka Anka-A with a top speed of miles per hour cruise of mphan combat radius of miles with a mission endurance time of 24 hours.

A pre-programmed mission plan can be loaded before the flight begins or can be altered during the flight. The role of the Anka-A will undoubtedly grow with the development of specialized communications relay, light armament and signals interception packages currently underway. Archived from the original on 24 January The program was initiated in and first flight of a prototype was recorded in December of The system was ankz from the outset as a medium-class UAV with a modular payload quality to undertake basic reconnaissance sorties.
