According to an article published by the Turkish Anadolu agency, the (Turkish) company STM is about to deliver a fleet of 500 suicide drones to the (Turkish) army. These are models position, light to allow transport, assisted so that only one person can pilot it, and intended for use " in asymmetric war zones or for anti-terrorism ". The device is equipped with tools to orient itself towards a target with an autonomous navigation system. It is able to zoom with a factor of 10x, carry loads and even be armed for ranged fire.
STM ensures that it can be operated in swarms of drones, up to 20 simultaneously, to be certain of reaching a target. The drone will benefit from progress in the management of drone swarms, in particular with the KERKES project. It offers technology for navigation tools based on the study of in-flight and real-time images to offer autonomous flights in the absence of GPS coverage or in the event of jamming. Targu drones had already been on trial in Turkey for a year. Deliveries will be spread over a period of 18 months. STM says its devices have attracted interest from other countries, and the company claims to be in " high-level talks held with Turkey's friendly and allied countries ". The tools for neutralizing drones will have to be quickly operational, taking into account the possibility of an attack carried out from the front by several devices.
