Aselsan’s Stabilized Advanced Remote Weapon Platform (SARP) can be integrated onto tactical vehicles, fixed surveillance posts, towers, and critical infrastructures. Depending on the operational requirements, SARP can be equipped with a 12.7mm machine gun, 40mm automatic grenade launcher or 7.62mm machine gun.
Aselsan’s SEDA system is designed to detect supersonic projectiles and to calculate the shooter’s location under all-weather conditions, using acoustic detection technology. The system has three configurations – Standalone (ASELSAN SEDA-S), moving-vehicle (ASELSAN SEDA-V), wearable (ASELSAN SEDA-W) – to satisfy different operational concepts.
