The unmanned ground vehicle Aslan developed by ASELSAN to demonstrate its capabilities to the Turkish security forces

Crafted by ASELSAN, the Middle-Class Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) named Aslan is geared up to exhibit its capabilities to the Turkish security forces.

Aslan has the capability to conduct reconnaissance, surveillance, target identification, and acts as a deterrent with the Sarp-L weapon system.

After undergoing successful tests, the Aslan UGV was initially unveiled at TEKNOFEST Samsun and subsequently demonstrated its capabilities at the Unmanned Ground Vehicles and Military Robotic Technologies Ceremony hosted at FNSS headquarters in Ankara on November 9, 2021.

Aslan, the middle-class unmanned ground vehicle

With a sturdy vehicle platform, Aslan can be seamlessly integrated with diverse mission-specific payloads.

ASLAN boasts a wireless communication range reaching 800 meters and is also controllable through the GSM network.

The primary weapon incorporated on the Aslan platform is the SARP-L Remote-Controlled Stabilized Weapon System, a product by ASELSAN.

Through a control console, Aslan can be operated remotely, while its autonomous features enable it to traverse demanding terrains and environments, carrying out area detection independently without the need for an operator.

Propelled by an electric motor, Aslan is capable of achieving speeds of up to 10 km/h, crossing trenches measuring up to 60 cm, and navigating inclines with gradients of up to 60% and side slopes of 30%.
