Meeting the operational needs of the security forces, UAVs are also actively involved in acts of disasters such as earthquakes, fires, etc.
Following the earthquake in "Elazig", "Anka", produced by TAI, was quickly sent to the area. As soon as the news came in, "Anka" has been working in the region, especially in "Sivrice".
With camera, signal intelligence, radio relay, synthetic-aperture radar (SAR), and the ability to carry useful loads of weapons systems, Anka has the ability to view in wet/cloudy and dark conditions in aerial surveillance applications. With "ASELSAN" "Sarper" SAR system, "Anka" provides images with the most accurate resolution that physical constraints can achieve, with the applied custom antenna design and signal processing approaches, it is able to display over the same antenna and perform moving target detection.
This ability is used in military exploration and surveillance applications, while civilian areas can support post-natural disaster damage detection and crisis management, urban planning and mapping applications.
