Roketsan Gives New Impulse to the Strike Power of Armed UAVs with MAM-T, the New Addition to the Smart Munition Product Family

Read Time:2 Minute, 33 Second

Roketsan is expanding its Smart Micro Munition product family, which has proven success in the field, with MAM-T. MAM-T has been developed to address a need for greater warhead efficiency and longer range, in light of the experience gained with MAM-L and MAM-C. MAM-T, which has received full marks from the user is now under serial production for domestic and export customers.

Members of the Smart Micro Munition Family, which can be integrated into Armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (AUAV) in the inventories of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF), the General Command of Gendarmerie, have been used successfully in operations, since 2016 for MAM-L, and since 2018 for MAM-C. Enhancing the efficiency of fixed-wing air platforms and particularly of armed UAVs, the MAM product family, is included also in the inventories of friendly and allied nations. MAM-L and MAM-C outperform their rivals with not only their technologies, but also their operational experience.

MAM-T, developed by Roketsan engineers in the light of the experience gained from MAM-L and MAM-C, gave a new impulse to AUAVs. Its first firing test was completed in April 2021 from a Bayraktar AKINCI Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV). In this test, the AKINCI UCAV deployed the Smart Munitions MAM-C, MAM-L and for the first time, MAM-T, successfully destroying the intended targets.

Developed nationally and indigenously, and optimised in terms of weight/efficiency, MAM-T can be used against armoured or unarmoured vehicles, buildings and surface targets. Along with the midcourse guidance capabilities, the ammunition provides high precision against moving and stationary targets, has also a semi-active laser seeker. Designed to be compatible with different platforms, the newest member of the family, MAM-T, with a 30+ km range capability from armed UAVs, 60 kilometres from light attack aircraft and 80 kilometres from fighter aircraft, will continue to demonstrate the game-changer identity of the family in the field.

Roketsan has already completed the serial production preparations and has ongoing projects for domestic as well as export customers.
