Other military space assets planned include a quartet of satellites that would launch in 2019 to supply electronic signals intelligence to battlefield operators. An early-warning spacecraft equipped with an infrared sensor capable of detecting ballistic missiles is also on the drawing board for 2025.

By the middle of the next decade, Ankara expects to operate a constellation of up to eight navigation, position and timing spacecraft, with up to five follow-on optical and radar-imaging satellites planned for the 2021-33 timeframe.
