ASELSAN's Power Distribution System will serve in the autonomous aircraft developed by Kocaeli University Autonomous Systems Technologies Team (KOUSTECH).
Anatolia News agency reported that two years, KOUSTECH is working on such systems for two years and will be representing Turkey in Unmanned Aerial Systems International Competition held in the United States.
The team has developed four different fixed-wing autonomous aircraft, two different rotary wings autonomous aircraft and autonomous land vehicle.
The Power Distribution System developed by the KOUSTECH Avionics Systems team was produced in accordance with MIL-STD-461 and IPC standards with the technical support of ASELSAN Transportation, Power and Energy Directorate engineers. The power distribution system consists of 3 different components and manages how to meet the power needs of many different electronic systems in the autonomous vehicle.
KOUSTECH Team Captain Kadir Dogan stated that defence industry companies like ASELSAN and BAYKAR, and Turkey Technology Team support their work but others do not pay much interest. “I hope that the successes of teams like us create awareness on this matter and support not only certain individuals and institutions but also a larger structure,” Doğan said.
