ASFAT Completes an Important Milestone for Turkish OPV
Turkiye continues to its studies enhance the capabilities of the Turkish Navy. ASFAT, a state subsidiary for military manufacturing, passed an important milestone.

The company published information about Turkish Off-Shore Patrol Vessel (OPV) design, research and development studies. Propeller cavitation, hydrodynamic pressure measurements and underwater noise tests are carried out at the İstanbul Technical University (İTU) Faculty of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, Cavitation Tunnel (KAT) Laboratory.

These tests are critical for protecting critical data about the ship from third hands. Propeller cavitation and underwater noise levels are essential data for sonar libraries to detect and determine ship classes with sonars. This information can be classified as intelligence data due to operational usage. All sound and noise levels are kept in Turkiye with locally made tests. This will make the detection and identification of the vessel difficult for third hands, thanks to carrying out trials in the country.
