The launching ceremony is held at Yonca-Onuk Shipyard in Tuzla, Istanbul.

Speaking at the event, President Demir said, "We aim to become one of the leading countries in the world in Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) by showing the experience and success we have gained in armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). We have many studies on Armed USVs; SANCAR AUSV is one of them. It is essential for us that AUSVs work in an integrated operational environment in terms of preparation for the operational environment of the future."

SANCAR AUSV is developed for performing reconnaissance and surveillance, surface warfare and mine countermeasure missions.

The USV will have HAVELSAN"s Network Enabled Data Integrated Combat Management System Advent. This is a new generation command and control system that responds to the needs of a force-oriented, network-enabled operational approach rather than a single ship.
