"An analogue of the Russian" Peresvet ": serial production of ALKA combat laser systems begins in Turkey

69

Turkey announced the start of serial production of ALKA combat laser systems (BLU). Turkish combat lasers, as noted by the manufacturer - the Roketsan company, can destroy small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Also, a combat laser can be used to remotely detonate mines and improvised explosive devices. It is argued that ALKA can also be used to neutralize certain ammunition - for example, mortar mines. At the same time, the main purpose is still to protect against drones.


The general director of the aforementioned Turkish company says that combat laser installations will soon begin to enter service "to protect critical facilities."

The ALKA system consists of a laser cannon, a radar system, a jamming system, and a power supply system.

As noted, the radar system itself identifies objects that may pose a danger to the protected area. The power of the laser installation is 2,5 kW, which is said to be enough to destroy the UAV. At the same time, it is not specified how long ALKA must act on the drone in order to destroy it in flight. Using the jamming system, the drone can be deactivated.

Roketsan says the laser warhead is "also effective against a swarm of drones." It has an automatic control mode, including an automatic target tracking and tracking mode.



Some performance characteristics:

The maximum distance for jamming is 4 km, the effective range of the drone is 500-1000 m, the maximum target speed is 150 km / h, the beam deflection is 1 mm per 8 km.

BLU ALKA is proposed to be used to protect the perimeter of military units, residential areas, security of airports and airfields.

The unit can be installed on a vehicle platform for mobility.

Experts called BLU ALKA the Turkish analogue of the Russian "Peresvet".

                They did not say the main characteristics - beam diameter and wavelength
                However, Russia does not report this at its "Peresvet" either, but, according to indirect data, Peresvet has microwaves rather than light (it can destroy electronics without damaging the case)
                But limiting the target to "150 km / h" - is this a joke, understandable only to the Turks?

                    May be. Still, 2,5 kW is roughly like a low-power gasoline burner with a consumption of one glass of gasoline per hour. Burn the brushwood, or you can sound the bottom of the boat there. But she is not capable of anything more.
                    But only civilian children's quadcopters fly at speeds less than 150 km / h. Any ISIS specialist will make a drone faster in a couple of days in the garage. And if it also glues it over with a mirror foil, then it will spit on such a laser.

      This children's toy is very, very far from Peresvet in all respects! Moreover, the poor location of the emitter itself, the short range of application, the inability to work on high-speed and maneuvering targets make this laser an excellent target for any type of missile capable of hitting ground vehicles.

      The data on the performance characteristics of the complex were not published by the Ministry of Defense or enterprises of the Russian military-industrial complex and therefore are tentative and predictive in nature.

      Diameter of the optical system of the main emitter of the complex - no more than 1 m
      Radiated power - more than 1 MW

      Target detection range / altitude - presumably up to 100-200 kilometers
      Range / height of target destruction - presumably up to 100-200 kilometers
      Azimuth guidance angles - up to 270 degrees
      Vertical guidance angles - up to 90 degrees and more

        The difficulty of hitting drones lies in the problem of their timely detection. Then you only need a good sight and a ballistic computer, so that you do not overdo it with the consumption of ammunition.
        The laser in this concept is too capricious for the weather and an expensive thing.

          I agree. The laser really depends on the weather. But under normal weather conditions = conditions that ensure its normal use, the laser is many times more effective than explosive ammunition. And the ratio of the cost of a shot to the probability of hitting a target with a laser is many times better than this ratio for explosive ammunition. Moreover, the cost of firing a laser is negligible compared to the cost of firing an explosive ammunition and = the cost of firing an el. energy.
          There is also no overcharge issue for the laser.
          Taking into account the effect of dispersion = weather, the use of a laser should be combined with the use of conventional air defense systems: what does not hit the laser, will bring down the air defense system with explosive ammunition. Here, conventional air defense insures the laser system.
          I believe that under normal weather conditions, ensuring the normal use of laser systems, conventional air defense will not even be involved. Under the worst weather conditions or the impossibility of using a laser, conventional air defense is provided or applied.

        Why 10%?
        As a rule, the efficiency is calculated from the calculation of the electricity supplied to laser diodes (for example, in diode pumping of solid-state laser systems), excluding electrical losses and energy consumption for cooling.
        When calculated in this manner, 25% efficiency is typically achieved for many diode pumped laser systems. Achievement of values ​​above 30% is possible, for example, with Yb: YAG disk lasers, pumped by efficient laser diodes. www.rp-photonics.com
