About the Competition

In parallel with the developments in technology, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) as a field is developing day by day and gaining more autonomy gradually.  

Another application area that requires high autonomy and is one of the trending research areas around the world is providing UAVs with the ability to engage in dogfights just like fighter jets.  Since UAVs, which have adopted their observation activities around the world mostly from manned platforms, cannot approach the level of human intelligence in areas such as high environmental awareness, decision-making ability and planning ability in dynamic environments, air-to-air combat maneuvers between fighter aircrafts can only be performed with manned aircrafts. The main purpose of the Combat Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) competition is to create such an air-air combat scenario between UAVs in a controlled environment and to direct young people who can achieve success in this field in the future to gain experience and improve their skills.

The competition will consist of two categories, rotary wing and fixed wing.
If the UAV provides the force required for its flight with its wings, this vehicle is considered to belong to the fixed wing category. If it provides the necessary force for its flight from rotating propellers, this vehicle is considered in the rotary wing category.
UAVs that carry out vertical landing and take-off and provide the necessary lift for flight through wings are also considered in the fixed wing category.
