At IDEF 2021, International Defense Exhibition, Turkish company Roketsan presents a new concept of a mini laser-guided missile system that can be mounted and fired from a drone.
Using new technology, Roketsan has designed a new laser-guided mini missile system that can be mounted on aerial or ground unmanned vehicles as well on individual infantry weapons. At IDEF 2021, the mini missile is mounted on the lower part of the quadcopter drone with two ready-to-fire containers.
The new laser-guided mini missile is an innovative weapon system that can be used in both hybrid and conventional operations. It can be launched from manned and unmanned platforms and enables effective destruction power against stationary targets and personnel with superiority of range and precision capability.
The laser-guided mini missile has a diameter of only 40 mm and a length of 50 cm. It uses a semi-active laser guidance method with an accuracy of 1 m CEP (Circular Error Probable). The missile has a maximum firing range of 1,000 m.
