ASELSAN has published the Annual Report for 2021. The report, which includes news and developments related to different products, also included the UV Missile Warning System, which was started to be produced under license by ASELSAN. UV Missile Warning System is a system that produces warning information to protect TAF helicopter platforms against IR guided missile threats, the production of which was started in ASELSAN with the transfer of license from the German Airbus company.
The critical elements within the Sensor Unit are; photo-detector and 6 different optical filters are supplied from Germany, all other sub-assemblies are produced locally. Due to the embargo initiated by the German government in 2017, these critical components could not be supplied and FIS production was stopped.
Nationalization of optical filters was completed in November 2020 and delivery was made by the end of 2021. As of February 2022, the difference qualification tests of the national photo-detector team have been completed, and it is planned to carry out helicopter integration and flight tests (FHIT).
