In the tests carried out, it has been observed that drones and fixed-wing UAVs, which have become an important threat to our military units especially in the operation areas, are quite successful in neutralizing them by dropping them with laser fire.
JARMOL has 5kW SM Fiber Laser System, Stabilized Laser Focuser, Adaptive Command Control System, Intelligent Power Management System developed by TÜBİTAK BİLGEM. It works in integration with ASELSAN İHTAR System (Radar, Jammer, EO Suit).
ARMOL was Turkey's first national laser system, which was put into the service of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF), in line with military standards. JARMOL is an advanced version of the ARMOL System (which has been in the TAF inventory since June 2020 and is still used in the tactical field) in terms of laser power, optical components, target tracking system and effective range.
