Following Azerbaijan- Armenia conflict in Karabagh, Armenia had pleaded Canadian government to suspend military equipment sales to Turkey. Turkish UAVs flying over the operation area were equipped with Wescam’s electro-optic suit. The Canadian government approved the request, and ASELSAN re-started to work on its CATS payload.

ASELSAN’s Common Aperture Targeting System (CATS) is an electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system.

CATS is a high-performance electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system designed for fixed-wing and rotary-wing airborne platforms, including Unmanned Air Systems (UASs), helicopters and aircraft.
