The HABRAS, Warhead Dynamic Test Track and the Test Campus, completed as turnkey project by Yapı Merkezi, were opened with a ceremony by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The test track is the longest and the highest capacity line in Europe with a length of 2,000 meters.
Chairman of Yapı Merkezi Holding Dr. Ersin Arioglu, Yapıray General Manager Volkan Okur Yılmaz, Yapı Merkezi İDİS General Manager Tamer Taşkın and Senior Managers of TÜBİTAK were also attended the opening ceremony. In the HABRAS, Warhead Dynamic Test Track and Test Campus following activities planning to test; drill drilling activity, aerodynamic tests at supersonic speeds, ejection tests in combat jets, rocket engine tests, high acceleration tests on various components and various environmental tests.”
With this project, it will be possible to carry out the tests carried out by other countries, with the costs of one million dollars, without being externally dependent, with much lower costs and completely local opportunities.
The rail test line will allow the testing of a very high amount of explosive material and the systems containing sensitive mechanical and electronic sub-components on a rail test line by means of rocket motors to supersonic (> 1200 km / h) to test their behavior in a dynamic environment.
There are 9 service buildings with 1.280 m² construction area and 2.000 meter long dynamic test track consisting of control building, customer acceptance building, energetic material warehouse and energetic material integration workshops, designed by Yapı Merkezi and TUBİTAK SAGE.
The Dynamic Test Track, which is designed and built to allow the necessary tests to be carried out and the collection of relevant data, allows the testing of a 1.000 kg mass object to be tested at a speed of 2.000 km / h.
Rail fasteners capable of transferring large dynamic loads on the rails safely to the infrastructure during the tests are designed and patented by Yapı Merkezi specifically for this project.
The project, which includes high level security and technological infrastructure, provides control and monitoring software FIRESOFT, which is developed for Rocket Engine Ignition System, provides double ignition with key. The Rocket Engine Ignition System, which has been realized by the Turkish Engineers within the structure of the building center, provides the heat required for the initiation of the chemical reaction by means of the current through the resistor.
With the Doppler Radar, a continuous speed measurement can be carried out on the test line at a speed of 2.000 km / h. The design of the speed measurement system has been planned and put into practice, foreseeing the possible extension of the line or the need for higher speeds. The connection is to be used to connect digital data between Speed Measurement, Ignition, Closed Circuit Camera and Data systems.
