Turkey’s leading defense company Aselsan conducted a second demonstration of the Albatross-S USV Swarm on June 19, 2022. During the demo, a new USV named “M0054R” was discovered.
A new USV design known as M0054R has also been announced.
On June 19, 2022, Turkey’s official defense procurement agency, SSB, released a video showing a swarm of unmanned surface ships in the Sea of Marmara. The first demonstration of the Albatros-S USV group took place in August 2021, and the weekend test was the second trial of the concept.
In this second demonstration, a new USV named “M0054R” was discovered with the Albatros-SUSV. The herd consisted of a heterogeneous structure with three USVs, two Albatros-S, and one M0054R.
“MIRUSV is being developed under another project to carry a large payload and demonstrate important capabilities for our country in this area. We have other USVs joining the herd as a new feature of the architecture. Created an opportunity in the herd project. Completed field testing of USVs of two different sizes and features. Formed a herd with ALBATROS-S and MIRUSV. Based on the infrastructure built, each USV It can be added as a swarm element or separated from the swarm. “
Yusuf Demir, SSB Chief
Demir further emphasizes that detailed work on environmental awareness, navigation and sensor technology will be carried out as part of the research. Data acquired from multiple sensors can be used for automatic detection of obstacles / objects and dynamic movements.
In addition, the task sharing function between USVs is performed using algorithms developed as part of the SWARM USV project. Herd-capable USVs are equipped with regional and national communication systems, control systems, and multiple redundant communication system architectures that can continue to operate in the event of GNSS jamming.
Aselsan has announced the SWARMUS V project for the first time. IDEF 2021 At the exhibition held in Istanbul in August 2021, a scale model of Albatros-SUSV was exhibited. SWARM USV is a technology acquisition project that can be run not only on Albatros-S USV, but also on other USVs being developed in Turkey.
Aselsan has announced its intention to increase the number of USVs to eight after the first demonstration on four boats, but seems to have changed the intention to run a herd of USVs on different ships of the same formation.
The MIR USV looks like a brand new model, Navy news Information about this USV Pamphlet distributed by Sefine Shipyard at DIMDEX 2022 Exhibition in Doha, Qatar in March 2022.
“MIR” means “commander” in Turkish, and the long mast of a ship with more sensors than a regular sensor says that the MIRUSV acts as a “control” over the other USVs in the herd. Reinforce your thoughts.
The USV is an ASW variant of Sefine’s constellation-class unmanned vessel with Variable Depth Sonar (VDS) and designed to meet the durability, nautical, and maneuverability requirements of defensive ASW operations in coastal waters. Introduced as. However, due to the flexibility of the boat, which can be configured according to the needs of the user, the swarm of surface drones seems to have an additional role.
The hull design and propulsion system allows the MIR to reach speeds in excess of 36 knots and operate in sea state 4. According to the company pamphlet, there are “important, amazing, important detections and features”. It has been published.
