KoçSavunma Presents Malaman Smart Sea Mine

KoçSavunma Presents Malaman Smart Sea Mine

Koç Group company KoçSavunma presented the Malaman smart sea mine at the DSA expo in Malaysia. Defence Ministry Company MKE unveiled the mine previously at IDEF2023. The Malaman smart sea mine is the result of a collaborative effort between KoçSavunma, the state-owned research institute TUBITAK SAGE, and the Defence Ministry owned munition manufacturer MKE Inc. Each entity played a crucial role in the development, with MKE A.Ş. producing the warhead, TUBITAK SAGE contributing its research expertise, and KoçSavunma overseeing the project. Malaman is characterised as "smart" as it can detect enemy ships through magnetic field sensors, pressure, vibrations, and sound and "decide", depending on the target and its position, when and if it will explode. The weight of the cylindrical mine is 600 kg, its length is 1.8 meters, and its diameter is 533 mm. The sea  mine will be laid on the bottom of the sea. KoçSavunma deals with underwater systems such as sonar, torpedo countermeasures, acoustic signal analysis, and marine data recording buoys. The Malaman Project was initiated in 2021 to meet the Turkish Naval Forces Command's needs.
