Centre of Excellence Status for Fuse Technologies in Prospect
Subsequent to the acquisition of TAPASAN in 2012, ROKETSAN has continued to invest in technological infrastructure and capability in the design, production, test and qualification of advanced fuses, including construction of a new fuse facility which will be completed this year. The company is close to achieving its goal of becoming a Centre of Excellence for fuse technology.
Fuses for 20mm ammunition, 107, 122 and 300mm rocket systems, ASW rockets and CIRIT missiles have already passed through design, development, qualification and serial production phases and significant deliveries have already been completed. Using the knowledge and experience acquired in this process, ROKETSAN has now achieved the required level of technological maturity in the disciplines necessary for applying them to fuses for classical ammunition. Generating new multi-purpose fuse solutions for ground- and sea-based artillery systems and focusing on an internal “Third Generation Smart Fuse Development” programme, the company is successfully addressing the challenges of improving accuracy and reliability of existing ammunition stocks and designs by replacing the fuse alone. The company has already achieved development of inductive setting technology for ammunition fuses and is continuing to develop multi-setting technology applicable to rocket and missile systems.
