    Will this mean Turkey imports less Israeli UAVs?

    I have read about some trouble in Turk-Israeli relations lately.

    Anka
    First ANKA-A Prototype introduced to the public.
    Role Unmanned aerial vehicle
    National origin Turkey
    Manufacturer TAI
    First flight Several test flights were performed. Maiden flight in September 2010.
    Introduction 2012[1]
    Status Under development, ground testing
    Primary user Turkish Air Force
    Program cost 107 millions $[1]

    The TAI Anka (English: Phoenix) is a family of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) being developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries for the Turkish Air Force. The Anka-A (or TIHA-A) is a surveillance version, while ANKA-B (TIHA-B) will be an armed version also known as "combat drone".[2]

    [edit] Development

    The contract regarding the development of an indigenous Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) system for the reconnaissance requirements of the Turkish Armed Forces became effective on 24 December 2004. Within the framework of the program, a total of three prototypes and ground systems will be designed, developed, manufactured and tested by mid 2011 as part of the prototype development phase. Subsequently in 2012, the serial production phase of ANKA-A will be launched and additional 10 systems (meaning 30 ANKA-A's) will be built for Turkish Air Force. Trials of a TEI (Tusas Engine Industries) designed engine will start within one year.[2]
    [edit] Design

    The Turkish Indigenous MALE UAV (TIHA) system will consist of air vehicles (A/V), Ground Control Station (GCS), Ground Data Terminal (GDT), Automatic Take-off and Landing System (ATOLS), Transportable Image Exploitation System (TIES), Remote Video Terminal (RVT) and various Ground Support Equipment (GSE).

    The TIHA system, which is designed for night and day missions including adverse weather conditions, performs real time image intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, moving/stationery target detection, recognition, identification and tracking missions.[3]

    While the TIHA system has an open architecture to support other potential payloads and missions, within the context of the existing project the air vehicle is configured to carry the following payloads onboard:

    * Electro-optic Color Day Camera
    * Electro-optic/Infrared/Laser Camera (EO/IR/LRF/LD/Spotter),
    * SAR/GMTI, ISAR Payload.

    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. The sandwich skin structure is reinforced by composite or metallic frames, ribs and supports. 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.

    The platform is also equipped with a digital flight control system, electro-mechanical actuators, and flight control sensor systems such as pitot-static, air data computer, navigation sensor, transducers, temperature, pressure, displacement sensors, etc. Various tasks are distributed along flight management computers and auxiliary control boxes. Identification and communication units and interface computers are employed in order to establish real time wide band communication and provide test and diagnostics functions. An air traffic radio is also integrated in the communication system for the integration of the aircraft into the civilian airspace. All flight critical equipment are dual or triple redundant and emergency modes of operational scenarios are taken into consideration for fail safe design.

    All flight software configuration items embedded on both the air and ground equipment are being developed indigenously by TAI. In a similar manner, all mission hardware and software are aimed to be developed by national sub-contractors, such as Aselsan.

    TIHA operations are supported by highly sophisticated ground systems. Whole mission segments of the air vehicle can be managed, monitored and controlled by a GCS. A pre-programmed mission plan can be loaded before the flight begins or can be altered during the flight. All the imagery stream of the payloads can be displayed and recorded in real time and all the payloads can be controlled from the GCS. ATOLS allows the air vehicle to perform its operation without operator intervention, including the most critical phases which are landing and take-off.

    In TIES, valuable intelligence information can be obtained by the analysis of bulky imagery data. TIES operators can initiate intelligence missions prior to or during flight. Refined information flows to the upper command layer in order to assist the headquarters to monitor a network of TIHA systems and benefit from the gathered intelligence information. Another interface of the TIHA system is the RVT, with which other friend unions who are close to the target area can utilize the real time imagery that TIHA air vehicle broadcasts.

    Fundamentally, this UAV is clear cut copy or a scale up version of Elbit HERMES 450.

    Wow! So that means new Tavors TAR-21 will not feature Turkis UGBLS.

    fighter_35, if you want to reply to a particular poster, use "Reply with Quote" option at the bottom of the post. It is easier to read that way.

    And welcome to the forum.

    fighter_35, a few questions about the ANKA,

    What can you tell me about the drone's SAR/GMTI radar? Range/swathes, spatial resolution, frequency , etc.
    What can you tell me about the drone's EO/IR pod? Sensor; whether dual band, or not?; LOROP-Oblique 1 photography capable?; data link, etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    A long tube shaped body, almost similar looking wing(only difference is length), above fuselage mounted wings(very similar, Hermas has got it only little higher), landing gear placing(exactly at same place) and layout, almost identical V shaped Rudder...............What else do you need? Don't say it is different because it houses Radar dome(radome) in center and electro-optical sensor turret in nose..........Man i am talking about airframe. They are not identical but layout is similar that is why i called it scaled-up version.

    You decided to go insulting so it won't be wrong if i repeat same.
    May be but surely not bigger than you. Cheers for your success.

    Reper doesn't features a tube shaped(missile type) main body it has sharp edges on side. Reaper front section is bubbled(significantly).

    True every fighter doesn't look like each other except few. F-16 looks like F-2, Mirage-III looks like Kifir, J-10 looks like Lavi.......... get the idea.

    There 'It' was for ANKA not for Hermes and since this thread is for Anka, it is more suitable to use 'IT' than name every time one refers to Anka. May be from next time you control your emotions and read correctly, indeed if you can!

    Go and read my post again. Ok let me do it for you. I said "landing gear placing(exactly at same place)". What i said was all about landing gear placing which in more precise term says about location of Center of Gravity.

    BTW Yes i'm blind in the sense that everyone looks blind to person who in reality is blind. Cheers!

    Totally different in what sense? I only talked about layout and external looks. And what in the world is 'Heron Hermes'?

    yek man, we copied it , and you say that landing gears place at the same place, true? then ı ask that to you does anka have same weight with heron hermes? and do we (turkey) know hermes's distrubution of weight ? answer is no then how do you say landing gears placing is same? or does it matter to be same? they do not have same weight , indian man know to be respectful to everyone or everynation
