Roketsan ASW rocket can be fired in single or salvo modes from the stabilized launcher located on a naval platform. Detonation depth can be controlled remotely by using time setting fuze. ASW rocket has insensitive (IM) high explosive warhead and IM motor which are desired in modern naval weapon systems. The ASW Launching System (developed by Aselsan) has stabilization, automatic and manual launcher laying capabilities. The Fire Control System is capable of processing the navigation and target data obtained from the naval platform.
