LMM Missile Launching System (MLS)+ 30 mm SMASH Remote Controlled Stabilized Naval Gun System SMASH is a remotely operated stabilized weapon station fitted with 30mm Mk44 Bushmaster-II Canon.
SMASH configurations incorporate advanced features as remote operation, built-in electro-optic sensor system for autonomous operation, day and night operation, stabilized turret, automatic target tracking (detect, track and fire on the move) and ballistic computation.
SMASH System has a stabilized turret which enables the line-of-sight of the gun to be aimed at the target at all times. Due to the stabilization feature, the system can perform precise firings against stationary or moving targets while the platform is on-the-move.
System can be operated remotely by using the remote gun control unit and hence provides gunner protection against counter fire. Besides, SMASH System is capable of firing 200 rounds per minute with its dual feed 30mm automatic cannon.
As opposed to fixed sight systems used on 12.7mm STAMP and 25mm STOP systems, SMASH incorporates a seperately stabilized electroptical suit which can move in elevation and azimuth axes relative to gun. This ensures effective firing at long distances by enabling line-of-sight stay on the target at all times, even during the firing where ballistic correction is applied to the gun. The separately stabilized electroptical sight also enables surveillance and target tracking without aiming the gun to the target. General specifications of the System are:
4/8 ready to fire Lightweight Multirole Missile (LMM) Two-axis gyro stabilized turret Automatic target tracking by EO Suite Laser Range Finder for target ranging High hit performance with fast reaction time High level system automation for ease of use Ease of integration into existing and new build FIBs Flexible system architecture meeting different customer requirements Low maintenance cost and high reliability

Aselsan Displays Hisar Air Defence Systems at IDEF 2015 ASELSAN displayed a wide range of products from Air Defence Systems to Border Security Systems, from Marine Systems to Electro- Optic Systems, from Communication Systems to Radar and Electronic Warfare Systems, from Guided and Navigation Systems to Avionic Systems at IDEF 2015 which was held in Istanbul last week (5-8 May 2015). ASELSAN also showcased its newly developed TORK Torpedoes Counter Measure System, Hybrid Laser and Missile Weapon System as well as Air Defence Ammunition with 35mm Airbust Ammunition for the first time at IDEF 2015.
Moreover, new products in a very wide spectrum among which Stabilized Gun Systems integrated on to the land platform, Guidance Systems in Air Force inventories, as well as Submarine Acoustic Systems, were presented to the appreciation of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and allied countries.
Many ASELSAN products/systems among which Mobile Border Security Systems exported to Uruguay in the close period, HF Radios with TESİD Reward, and 3 Dimension Mobile Search Radar as well as Fire Control Radar, Identification Friend-or-Foe and Recognition System and Patrol and Facility Security solutions were displayed at IDEF 2015.
Aselsan also displayed its Hisar range of short- and medium-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems for the first time at IDEF 2015.
The range includes the Hisar-A short-range SAM system, the Hisar medium-range SAM system, and a new fire control system (FCS) for SAM batteries. These have been developed by Aselsan as prime contractor for the programs under a contract awarded by the Turkish Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) in 2011.
Hisar-A is based on an FNSS ACV-30 tracked vehicle chassis armed with 4 Roketsan Hisar-A SAMs. Formerly known as T-Laladmis, the tracked Hisar-A system mounts its own mast-mounted air surveillance radar and an electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) system, allowing it to operate as an independent standalone system without the need to operate as a battery with a separate FCS. The Hisar-A system is manned by a crew of three: two control personnel and a driver for the vehicle.
Hisar-A missile (previously known as AIHSF) has a maximum altitude of 5 km and a maximum overall range of 15 km (at sea level). Roketsan is subcontractor to Aselsan for both Hisar missiles, responsible for the all-up rounds, including their launch canisters.
The medium-range Hisar system (previously known as T-Maladmis) is based on a wheeled Mercedez-Benz chassis equipped with six Roketsan Hisar-O missiles.
This system is designed to operate as a battery in concert with the Aselsan FCS, which is equipped with a mobile search radar, EO/IR system, and targeting radar. The Hisar-O missile has a maximum altitude of 10 km and a maximum range of 25 km at sea level.
Development/company trials of the Hisar system are expected to be completed by 2018. Ballistic flight tests of the Hisar-A missile occurred in October 2013, with Hisar-O following in August 2014. Both missiles will continue their flight test program over the next two years.
The missiles also share the same interface with their launch canister and the same umbilical connection. As well, there are high levels of technological commonality in the missiles' motor, control section, power supply, datalink, guidance, and safe/arm device. Both missiles are mid-course guided by radio-frequency datalink and feature terminal IR guidance.
Both missiles are hard launched vertically from their canister and powered by a dual pulse solid propellant motor.
Turkey Advances Indigenous Missile Programs By Burak Ege Bekdil 6:06 p.m. EDT July 18, 2015
ANKARA — The Turkish military does not boast the world's most advanced gear for precision strikes but a number of local programs are progressing, signaling reduced future dependence on foreign systems.
Turkish officials recently reported "critical progress" in three systems they have been developing over the past years.
Procurement officials said the first critical firing tests for the Atmaca, a Turkish anti-ship missile, went "extremely successful."
The Atmaca is a radar-guided anti-ship cruise missile with a range of 120 miles. When the program took off in 2009, the idea was to build an indigenous anti-ship missile "with features similar to the Exocet."
But during its development phase Turkish authorities decided that the Atmaca instead should look like the Harpoon Block II, which is already in the Turkish inventory.
"There is an understanding that the Atmaca will eventually replace the Harpoon," said one procurement official familiar with the program.
The Harpoon is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile system, developed and manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing Defense, Space & Security). It was introduced in 1977. The Harpoon system also has a land-strike variant, the Standoff Land Attack Missile. The regular Harpoon uses active radar homing and a low-level, sea-skimming cruise trajectory to improve survivability and lethality.
"The Atmaca will help us move forward to our goal of achieving maximum lethality with minimum cost," said one Navy official. "That target is essential for countries like Turkey that have budgetary constraints."
An Ankara-based analyst said the military is aiming at a "better and cheaper hit" as the local industry has advanced in several indigenous programs over the past years.
"The successful first firing test was a good sign, cementing the military's trust in an industry that is new at developing such capabilities," he said.
The procurement official said the first deliveries of the Atmaca will start at the end of 2016. The first Atmacas will be outfitted to Turkey's Milgem corvettes and frigates.
The missile system is being developed by a team of Roketsan, a state-controlled missile maker; military specialist Aselsan, Turkey's biggest defense company; and ARMERKOM, an Istanbul-based research and development unit of the Turkish Navy.
Rokestsan announced the first autopilot-controlled test missile of its Hisar-A, a low-altitude air defense missile, was successfulin a series of tests June 19-24. Along with the autopilot-controlled test missile, Roketsan said the Hisar-A system's ballistic test missile BTF-2 also was successfully tested.
And on July 2-3, Roketsan said, it successfully tested the Umtas, its anti-tank missile. The Umtas, with its infrared imaging and laser-seeker options, is an anti-tank missile with a range of eight kilometers to be used in air-to-ground and ground-to-ground operations.
Umtas is considered the official anti-tank system for the T-129 attack helicopters Turkey has developed under license from the Italian-British AgustaWestland and the Anka, Turkey's first locally developed unmanned aircraft. Other potential platforms to be outfitted with the Umtas are armored land vehicles and naval vessels.
