Roketsan’s Navigation Solutions: Precision Behind Missile and Munitions Product Family

20 Mayıs 2019

Accuracy is becoming one of the most critical factors in navigation systems, given its importance in mission accomplishment as the range of munitions and missiles grows. Roketsan, one of the leading manufacturers of missiles and munitions in the world, has its own unique navigation solutions that support its position.


The inertial navigation solution product families that have been developed and qualified by Roketsan add high accuracy and reliability to Roketsan systems. This product family also ends dependence on other countries in the design and production of precision inertial sensors and has strategic importance in that respect. Having ended Turkey’s dependence on other countries as a result of its level of self-sufficiency and technological superiority in inertial navigation technologies, Roketsan keeps the bar high by delivering systems equipped with Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) manufactured with indigenous and national inertial sensors to the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF).

Inertial navigation systems ensure that any ground, air, space or naval platform can travel along an established route, from one point to another, autonomously or with the support of auxiliary systems such as global positioning system (GPS), odometer, log lines and astro-trackers, depending on tactical and/or strategic requirements.


In line with its vision to produce indigenous and national products and technologies, Roketsan has been developing and manufacturing inertial sensors and multi-system GPS receivers through the use of indigenous resources for more than 20 years. The design and production efforts that began at a sensor level in that direction led to the serial production of the IMU and inertial navigation system (INS) with the required performance, and resulted eventually in serial production after qualification following successful ground and flight tests.

Roketsan emphasizes that they are ready to offer innovative and original navigation solutions in the upcoming period: “We are ready to devise indigenous and national navigation solutions that will meet the requirements of our government, defence sector companies and other stakeholders, making use of our 20-years of know-how and experience, and the capabilities and resources that we have acquired in the field of inertial navigation and GPS technologies.”
