Turkey’s Meteksan Defence Industry To Present New ‘Soft Kill’ Laser System (Video)

The Nazar “Evil Eye” laser system as seen in a video shared by the Anadolu Agency.

On August 17, Turkey’s defense contractor Meteksan Defence Industry Inc. announced that it had developed a new military laser system.

The system, dubbed “Nazar ” [Evil Eye], will be presented for the first time at the Meteksan Defence booth during IDEF 2021 Exhibition. The system was developed with support from the Presidency of Defence Industries of the Republic of Turkey.

According to Meteksan Defence Industry, the land-based Nazar system provides broadband state-of-the-art laser soft-kill capability against elect-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) guided munitions to protect critical military bases and civilian facilities.

The system can detect EO and IR guided munitions then jam them with laser dazzling, Thus, it will be possible to neutralize EO and IR guided munitions from long distances.

Nazar was also designed to provide reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities. The system can also work with other sensors and systems to increase overall efficiency.

In the first phase of the Nazar project, a mobile land-based version that can operate on its own power was developed. Now, Meteksan Defence Industry Inc. is working on a ship-based version of the system.

The Nazar laser system will provide Turkey with capabilities accessible only to few nations. Nevertheless, the actual effectiveness of the system remains questionable.

Karma is a B--ch

These things really mess up camera sensors.

In addition to gently ending spy plane missions (ie without damaging the plane or the pilots – just the various sensors) they are great for sweeping areas of coastline, mountains, buildings, or anywhere else where spy cameras may be hidden, or electro-optical devices (such as night vision) are being used.

Were it not banned under international convention, they could also be used to cook retinas.

PUTIN IS A FAG

Russia has no answer to laser technology created by others. They’re waiting to steal and produce knock off versions.
