Game-Changer Autonomous System: CAKA S-KUSV (Submersible-Kamikaze Unmanned Surface Vehicle) 

ÇAKA S-KUSV (Submersible Kamikaze Unmanned Surface Vehicle) is the game-changer platform in naval warfare, setting a new standard for autonomous systems with its advanced technology and kamikaze attack capabilities. This groundbreaking vehicle is the result of HAVELSAN’s high engineering capabilities, proving the company’s expertise in developing cutting-edge technologies for maritime operations. Its underwater mobility enables silent and devastating strikes against surface targets. ÇAKA supports naval superiority by delivering unrivaled performance on A2AD (Anti-Access & Area Denial) and reshapes the concept of deterrence.

ÇAKA S-KUSV stands out with its remarkable autonomous 3D navigation capabilities, allowing it to effortlessly maneuver both on the surface and underwater. Its precise autonomous navigation system ensures optimal performance, guaranteeing mission success. With the ability to navigate independently in three dimensions, ÇAKA confidently operates in complex maritime environments, maintaining an operational advantage over adversaries.

Equipped with powerful high-explosives, ÇAKA delivers a great blow to its targets. Its lethal payload ensures maximum impact, rendering adversaries ineffective. With the destructive force it carries, ÇAKA possesses the ability to neutralize threats swiftly and decisively, significantly denying the area of operation against the penetrating adversary surface assets.

ÇAKA’s underwater mobility capability makes it a formidable asset for surprise attacks. Navigating beneath the surface, it catches adversaries off-guard and performs superior strikes. The surprise attack capability, combined with high precision, grants ÇAKA a significant advantage, enabling it to swiftly eliminate targets and maintain operational superiority.

Additionally, ÇAKA features a mobile/shore control center, allowing for flexible operational capabilities. This centralized command center ensures seamless coordination and control of multiple units, optimizing efficiency and effectiveness in the theater. Moreover, its integration with network-supported combat management systems, robust data links, and recognized maritime picture systems enhance operational capability, facilitates enhanced situational awareness, and efficient decision-making. By interoperability with other unmanned platforms, ÇAKA further expands its versatility, enabling collaborative missions for maximum impact. Leveraging advanced task management based on ADVENT Combat Management System, ÇAKA optimizes mission execution through efficient resource allocation, intelligent task prioritization, and adaptive decision-making in dynamic operational environments.

When comparing ÇAKA to USVs, UAVs, torpedoes, and sea mines, several distinct advantages make it a standout choice in naval warfare. In contrast to USVs, ÇAKA offers underwater mobility and impressive surface speeds over 60 knots. Its kamikaze characteristic makes it insensitive to close-range interference of surface warships, ensuring its effectiveness in combat scenarios.

Compared to UAVs, ÇAKA boasts extended patrolling capabilities, maintains high readiness, and carries out surveillance for extended periods. Additionally, it possesses increased explosive capability, delivering a devastating impact to its targets.

When compared to torpedoes, ÇAKA stands out as a cost-effective solution without compromising on effectiveness. Its capability for swarm/group attacks and extended underwater duration provides tactical advantages in engagements.

In comparison to traditional sea mines, ÇAKA offers remote real-time target selection and grants operators precise remote explosive control. It is not affected by Mine Countermeasures carried out by surface warships, such as minimizing acoustic or magnetic signatures, ensuring its potency in disrupting enemy forces.

With its exceptional underwater mobility, kamikaze characteristics, extended patrolling capabilities, augmented explosive capability, cost-effectiveness, swarm/group attack potential, remote target selection capability, ÇAKA stands as a unique asset in modern and future naval operations.
