TEPEGÖZ


The greatest advantage offered by TEPEGÖZ is its ability to fly day and night for a week at an altitude of 3,000 m over a particular area or a city. The platform offers potential benefits to its users in many fields, such as communication, intelligence and security.

As an unmanned airship that is capable of operating unremittingly for long periods, TEPEGÖZ is ready to enter into service as an effective and low-cost solution for specific requirements. TEPEGÖZ, as a type of platform that was formerly known as a “zeppelin”, is lighter than air and can fly to its destination under the power of its own engines. Zeppelins were first developed at the same time as aircraft, and they were the first platforms to provide long-range passenger transportation. They also saw use in the military field, being deployed for reconnaissance/surveillance and bombardment missions during both World Wars.

Following the crash of the HINDENBURG, and under the effect of the rapid development of aircraft technologies, a long break was seen in the history of airships.

In today’s world, however, they seen a rise in popularity, especially for the transportation of heavy loads, in line with the recently adopted hybrid approach based on the use of lighter-than-air gases and lifting techniques utilising aerodynamic effects. There are many companies working on the development of such vehicles, including defence giant Lockheed Martin, but what distinguishes TEPEGÖZ from zeppelins is that it is unmanned. The first variant of TEPEGÖZ has been designed to allow the airship to carry out its mission for a duration of one week at an altitude of 3,000 m, which is impossible for systems that make use of existing technologies like those used in aircraft.

As TEPEGÖZ is lighter than air, no energy is spent in remaining aloft.

TEPEGÖZ generates and stores energy through its installed solar panels for use at night, when there is enough stored to meet the power requirements for flight control, the use of payloads and communication. The greatest advantage of TEPEGÖZ is its ability to fly both day and night for a week at an altitude of 3,000 m over a specific area or a city. The platform can offer benefits in many fields, such as communication, intelligence and security. TEPEGÖZ has been designed as a product family, with the larger models offering increased mission altitudes and payload capacities, resulting in expanded coverage areas and mission profiles.

History of TEPEGÖZ

The history of TEPEGÖZ dates back to the establishment years of Otonom Teknoloji. The company followed a steady development approach, beginning with trials with aerostats ascending to altitudes of 300 m and 1,000 m to verify the technologies and subsystems to be used in TEPEGÖZ.

These aerostats constituted the DORUK product family of the time. The trials began following a 15-month preparation phase, and were completed successfully in ... . Then, TEPEGÖZ was ready for the test phase, and it conducted its first flight on ... . As regulations regarding the use of airships in controlled airspace had not yet been fully established, the maximum altitude permitted during this first flight was 50 m, although all of the critical systems of TEPEGÖZ proved their ability to carry out their missions successfully.

Road Map of TEPEGÖZ

In its product family, consisting of airships, aerostats and tethered unmanned aerial vehicles, Otonom Teknoloji uses common technologies, components and subsystems.

As a result of this, when a product is improved or tested, it affects the entire product family, and accordingly, the critical technologies and subsystems used in TEPEGÖZ have matured in other products and have kept improving. Whenever a new business opportunity comes up, Otonom Teknoloji is ready to meet its customers’ needs with various models adapted to special requirements.
