ALPAGU Fixed Wing Loitering Munition System

ALPAGU Fixed Wing Loitering Munition System developed by STM is designed for both reconnaissance and surveillance and for striking targets outside the line of sight with high accuracy, can be carried by the individual soldier, and can operate autonomously or with remote control.

ALPAGU can be effectively used day and night against fixed or moving targets with the help of embedded and real-time image processing and deep learning algorithms that have developed with national facilities.

The system is comprised of “Fixed-Wing Smart Ammunition System”, Launcher” and “Ground Control Station” components.

ALPAGU which continues its testing activities intensively, will be delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces in 2020.
