Roketsan displayed its Smart Micro Munition (MAM-L) as a weapons solution for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) at DIMDEX.
MAM-L is a variant of Roketsan’s Laser Guided L-UMTAS (Long Range Anti-Tank Missile System).
The MAM-L does not have a rocket motor and glides down to the target.
“The design and application concept of the MAM-L provides its users with the capability of effectively neutralizing time critical targets, particularly those that arise during reconnaissance and surveillance missions. Meanwhile, thanks to its precision guidance and small dimensions, the MAM-L offers a solution with a low collateral damage. When compared with all the other capabilities of the armed forces, a combination of the MAM-L and a tactical UAV is the most cost-effective solution. We believe that soon other countries will also start taking an interest in this solution,” said Selçuk YAŞAR, President and CEO of ROKETSAN.
The weapon system has already been integrated on BAYRAKTAR and KARAYEL tactical UAVs operated by the Turkish armed forces and deployed on operational missions.
The munition’s light weight of approximately 25 kg and length of 1 m, allows for fitment on a wide variety of platforms and offers warhead options such as high explosive fragmentation warhead or tandem high energy anti-tank warhead (for use against heavy armored tanks).
