The Roketsan ASW Weapon System is a system which was developed to be used against subsurface targets from surface platforms, which can be used at a range between 500 - 2000 m and a depth 15 - 300 m, which can function as integrated to the weapon management system and the sonar of the surface platform and which has the capability of automatic target engagement.

It can be fired at targets in single or salvo modes and detonation at the desired depth can be maintained with the adjustable time fuze. ROKETSAN DSH rocket, having a High Explosive warhead and a Rocket Motor, possess the insensitive munitions property (IM) which is a property much desired in modern munitions.

The ASW Launching System has stabilization, automatic and manual target engagement capabilities. Fire Control System calculates the required firing principles using navigation and target information provided by the surface platform.
