Vertical Firing Test Accomplished in “Hisar” Projects

In the December issue of the Aselsan magazine, it was announced that the subsystem integration test activities within the scope of “Hisar” Projects have been completed and system level development and test process has been initiated

Date: Issue 79 - February 2018

Within the scope of “Hisar” Projects, vertical firing was accomplished for the first time and the 360-degree protection feature was successfully tested. The tests of Hisar (Unique Low / Medium Altitude Air Defense Missile System) were performed in Aksaray by Aselsan and Roketsan with the participation of representatives from the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries and Turkish Armed Forces.  “Hisar” will play an important role in Turkey’s air defense capability. The radar, command-control / firing control, electro-optic and communication components of Hisar Systems also took place for the first time in the campaign where the control and guidance capabilities of the high-maneuvered “Hisar” missiles were successfully tested. Thus, significant progress was achieved in the system-level integration and tests. The target detection/tracking, command control/firing tests as well as interim phase guidance tests were successfully performed. 

The Low Altitude Air Defense Missile System (Hisar-A) and Medium Range Air Defense Missile System (Hisar-O) provides the capability to destroy fixed and rotary wing aircrafts, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and air to ground missiles.
