President of Defence Industry Agency (SSB) Professor İsmail Demir stated in a television interview that MARLIN Armed Unmanned Sea Vehicle (AUSV), developed in partnership with ASELSAN and Sefine Shipyard, took part in a NATO Dynamic Messenger exercise for the first time.



Pointing out that more than one company is working in this field, Demir said, “Once you get the platform out, you have many options about the systems you may install. You can install missiles or electronic warfare systems. This is one of them. We integrated an electronic warfare system. It took part in the exercise in NATO. Turkiye is a NATO member country, and it has a structure that makes NATO stronger.

We aim to demonstrate our capability. This is a new approach to project execution. The local production rate is over 70 per cent.”
NATO’s Standing Naval Group 1 shared MARLIN’s photo on his social media account and said, “Demonstration of Unmanned Surface Vessels during Dynamic Messenger. Testing the interoperability of new maritime unmanned systems is important because they will play a vital role in our future fleets!”
NATO has also said on its official website that a Distinguished Visitors Day marked the end of REPMUS22 and the beginning of Dynamic Messenger 2022 (DYMS22), which is held at the Maritime Operational Experimentation Centre (CEOM), Troia, Portugal.
