Retrieved 2 December Retrieved 18 November Anka Block B passed Where applicable, the appearance of U. They can operate at distances of up to km, using LoS data-links.

A previous October announcement mentioned a procurement of ten Anka systems in the Block B configuration which is said to offer improved performance and capabilities to A-models which are viewed as pre-series airframes. Block B Ankas will not be armed but feature encrypted data links, a full-color, high-definition camera and GPS control – the changes requiring a new chin fairing and nose bulge to be added.

The platform is also equipped with a digital flight control system, electro-mechanical actuators, and flight control sensor systems such as GPS, pitot-static, air data computer, navigation sensor, transducers, temperature, pressure, displacement sensors, etc. All the imagery stream of the payloads can be displayed and recorded in real time and all the payloads can be controlled from the GCS. Images marked with “www. An air traffic radio is also integrated in the communication system for the integration of the aircraft into the civilian airspace.

TAI Anka – Wikipedia

iav Graph average of The accepted aircraft in Blok-B configuration features a winglet due to the requirement of an additional kg in payload and 24 hours of endurance. Having achieved its maiden flight in Septemberthe first ANKA-S system consists of two air vehicles, FLIR payloads, a satellite communications satcom capability and related ground systems. Archived from the original on 20 July Named after the mythical person winged beast, the Anka is currently undergoing evaluations to become the standard UAV of the Turkish Air Force – working in conjunction with air- and land-based units to form a modernized effective fighting force.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Anka was born of an indigenous initiative by the Turkish authorities to supply a homegrown UAV solution to its ever-expanding military requirements. According to official sources, one Block-B system, consisting of three air vehicles, payloads and related ground segment systems, was leased by the SSM. Archived from the original on 8 May The whole composite airframe is composed of a monoblock fuselage, detachable wing and V-Tail, retractable landing gear, redundant control surfaces, avionics and payload ankka and service doors.

There is another fuselage bulge at amidships under the fuselage though this appears to be an optional fitting.

Eight more platforms are scheduled to follow. The airframe crashed, however, while attempting to land on 3 December due to a technical failure. ATOLS allows the air vehicle to perform its operation without operator intervention, including the most critical phases which are landing and take-off.

ANKA can be readied for flight by just three personnel in 45 minutes. Retrieved 5 January The first flight of the latter, which can operate at up to 40,ft, onboard an ANKA-S is expected to take place in mid The first batch was planned to be delivered in March Serial numbers and deployed on 25 March carried out more than sorties within a six month period, though the first of them experienced a crash landing on 9 October 9 the same year.

UAV operations are supported by highly sophisticated ground control system with complete redundancy, developed by a domestic defence company Savronik. SSM underlined the fact that the ANKA-S would be used for reconnaissance and surveillance missions and that its satcom capability means that up to six aircraft can be controlled simultaneously via satellite: The role of the Anka-A will undoubtedly grow with the development of specialized communications relay, light armament and signals interception packages currently underway.

Archived from the original on 13 January Propelled by a pusher type heavy fuel engine, the aircraft is furnished with fuselage fuel tanks and fuel system, ice protection system, environmental control system, lighting system, redundant electrical system with battery backup, and harness system.
