ARES Radar Electronic Support Measure Systems in production

The production of the ARES series Radar Electronic Support Measure (ESM) Systems produced by ASELSAN is in progress. Last but not least, an ARES series Radar ESM system will be integrated into the Turkish Naval Forces’ Long Horizon Naval Surveillance System.

“Providing significant support to the Turkish Armed Forces in detecting and identifying threat radar signals with high accuracy, ARES Radar Electronic Support Measure Systems’ production is in progress,” President of the Presidency of Turkish Defence Industries (SSB) Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir tweeted.

“An ARES series Radar ESM system will also be integrated into the Turkish Naval Forces’ Long Horizon Naval Surveillance System, which plays an important role in protecting Turkey’s interests in the surrounding seas. Thus, boosting the capabilities of the Turkish Naval forces in the radars and electronic warfare arena,” Demir added to his tweet.

ASELSAN Radar Electronic Support Measure System

​​​​​ARES-2SC Submarine Radar ESM System designed to improve the electronic support capability of submarine platforms by using modern and ASELSAN technologies. First, the System has been integrated to AY Class (type 209) Submarine platforms and is baseline for ARES-2NS New Type Submarine platforms (Type 214) Radar ESM Systems.

ARES-2SC Submarine Radar ESM System improved by the field experience of ASELSAN’s naval Radar ESM Systems and (ARES-2) family of ASELSAN Radar ESM System for submarines.

ARES-2SC fulfills main functions such as detecting, tracking, analyzing, diagnosing, displaying in proper format and automatic or intentional recording/replaying the emissions from radars operating at a frequency range of mainly 2-18 GHz, including LPI radars. The System indicates the frequencies and parameters as well as bearings of the radar emissions within the 360° azimuth coverage, accurately and in near-real time, on a continuous basis.

With the pressure tight compact antenna structures, high-tech wideband digital microwave receiver and sophisticated design whereby ARES-2SC performs the ES mission reliable and successfully in a short reaction time.
