Ground surveillance radars for critical security requirements

The Retinar PTR Perimeter Surveillance Radar developed by Meteksan Defence is a mobile and new generation radar system optimised for human detection, classification of human/animal or vehicle, and recognition with state-of-the-art features.

This high-technology radar system is mainly developed for border security, base protection, and security of critical infrastructures, such as petroleum refineries, power plants, pipelines, and military basis. Retinar PTR radars are currently operational in Turkey and other countries across Europe and Asia.

Counter drone solutions for military applications

KAPAN Anti-Drone System offers superior drone detection, tracking and neutralisation performance for border and critical infrastructure security.

Meteksan Defence’s KAPAN Anti-Drone system offers precise drone detection and tracking performance with radar, electro-optic systems’ combinations, and allows the neutralisation of drones with an RF Jammer.

KAPAN is used for base protection, force protection, critical infrastructure security, airport security, patrolling personnel security and maritime surveillance and security.

High technology systems for UAV operational superiority

Meteksan Defence offers several mission, communication, flight and support systems for UAV manufacturers.

This includes MILSAR UAV SAR/MTI to provide high-resolution images in all weather conditions, AKSON C-Band UAV Data Link to create secure communication with high data-transmission speed, and the OKIS Automatic Take-off and Landing System to ensure safe take-off and landing of UAVs without GPS.

The AGNOSIS Anti-Jamming GNSS is used to eliminate jammer signals targetting GPS, CRA Radar Altimeters provide precise altitude data, and the company also offers other products, such as a Telemeter Transmitter and a Flight Control Computer.

Innovative systems for guided missiles and munitions
