Autonomous unmanned surface vehicles incorporate modern technology into military units by sensing the environment with sensor systems and performing critical tasks such as ISR and defense without personnel, all within the scope of digital battlefield requirements. Armed unmanned surface vehicles will become an unavoidable force multiplier for modern navies in the coming years, responding to asymmetric threats. In response to the needs of modern navies, HAVELSAN developed the SANCAR Armed Unmanned Surface Vehicle in collaboration with Yonca-Onuk Shipyard.
SANCAR AUSV has an uninterrupted communication infrastructure based on RF/GSM/SAT systems used in tandem. The brand-new AUSV was launched and completed the first sea trials in the second half of 2022.
This enables it to effectively perform operations over long distances. It is the first unmanned system to use the ADVENT ROTA mission system. Because of this feature, the SANCAR AUSV can be controlled from a mobile Ground Control Station that has an ADVENT C4ISR mission system and is compliant with NATO Interoperability Standards. It also has the ability to be deployed on other naval platforms that use ADVENT.
SANCAR can transfer tasks between ships, perform network-centric operations with manned/unmanned platforms as a task group, and easily adapt to swarm operations. In this regard, SANCAR AUSV outperforms its global competitors in terms of technology infrastructure.
SANCAR AUSV, designed to autonomously perform the duties of port/base protection, search/rescue, intelligence, reconnaissance, surveillance, patrol, surface warfare, and mine countermeasures, will reduce the risks to human life and allow many tasks to be completed more cost-effectively with modular payloads. As a result, it has become one of the most adaptable platforms ever created. SANCAR AUSV, a superior platform with numerous cutting-edge technologies, will prepare the world’s navies for the operational environment of the future.
