The laser defense system (LSS), developed by Turkish defense giant ASELSAN, has been successfully tested, Undersecretary for Defense Industries Ismail Demir said recently.
The LSS was developed to effectively eliminate threats posed by unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles at the range of 500 meters as well as improvised explosive devices and suspicious roadside packages at the range of 200 meters.
In the successful tests, the system’s high power laser source, very low cost of shots, high-capacity magazine, continuous shooting, optical target detection and advanced target tracking system were highlighted.
Laser Defense System (LSS) is developed against mini and micro UAV threats up to 500 meters, camouflage systems at residential areas used by terrorists and IED and roadside suspected packages up to 200 meters.
Priority usage is for ship platforms, power plants, airbases, border patrol stations, headquarters and convoy routes.
