The initial reviews from experts suggest that Kizilelma has the potential to steer the Turkish fighter jet technology to enter the 6th generation class, surpassing countries like the US and Russia.
Speaking to TRT World at the fifth Teknofest, the Baykar chairman and CTO described the showcase of Türkiye’s first unmanned fighter aircraft as a ‘dream’ twenty years in the making.
Türkiye's largest tech event has officially expanded to Azerbaijan as both countries look to strengthen co-operation and develop critical technologies.
Bayraktar Kizilelma will have aggressive manoeuvres, advanced artificial intelligence and the ability to carry out air-to-air combat like manned warplanes.
"The pioneer of National Technology Initiative and locally produced drones and our guide Ozdemir Bayraktar, passed away at the age of 72," the company said in a statement.
Turkey’s latest drone takes its defence industry into the big leagues, among “the top three combat drone manufacturers in the world,” President Erdogan says.
Turkey’s major drone manufacturer says Canada’s cancellation of drone technology export permits to Turkey will not harm Baykar.
The technologically superior drone is equipped with missiles and cruise missiles. It can also collect data from a high altitude.
Indigenously built, Bayraktar TB-2 is a medium altitude long endurance tactical unmanned aerial vehicle capable of conducting intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, as well as armed attack missions.
Several Turkish sectors came together and produced 100 domestic ventilator machines within a month and they'll deliver 5,000 more by the end of May.
Teknofest Istanbul Aerospace and Technology Festival featured thousands of contestants from all over the world. Here is some of the coolest work from Turkey’s future tech pioneers.
The six-day festival, jointly organised by the Turkish Technology Team Foundation and Industry and Technology Ministry, is expected to attract at least one million visitors.
