ASELSAN TORK Hard-Kill Torpedo Countermeasure System at IDEF 2015. TORK ; approaches to torpedo threat with active homing guidance and explodes at effective range to destroy or harm to stop its operation. TORK, is an anti-torpedo torpedo to physically destroy or harm torpedoes to stop their attacks during torpedo countermeasure operation of strategically important surface ships of naval forces defined as high value units.
     
Thanks to TORK, which has been developed in Turkey and has original hardware and software, ships will navigate the seas more safely, according to Aselsan. As an effective defence against a torpedo threat faced by submarines and surface vessels TORK provides the joint use of Soft-Kill (Physical Destruction) and Hard-Kill (Functional Destruction) methods.

TORK has the capability to destruct acoustic-guided, wire-guided, unguided and slipstream-guided torpedoes that are aimed at surface vessels. TORK counters torpedo threats that are approaching platforms by measuring distance and direction. When it reaches the destruction destination, it deactivates the threat through detonation.
