The METE is a Laser-Guided Mini Missile that can be fired from a grenade launcher by a single operator. the missile is also designed to be integrated into the turrets of mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Unmanned Land Vehicles (ULV), and Unmanned Marine Vehicles (UMV) thanks to its lightweight and small size.
Roketsan set out to develop this system to increase the combat effectiveness of security forces engaging in urban warfare, against threats such as snipers, multiple targets and enemy reinforcements. Weighing approximately 1 kg, the METE can be used on many platforms. The development of the system is continuing. It has a semi-active laser seeker with a strike precision of approximately 1-meter CEP, and a range of 1,000+ meters.
With a mini seeker and a mini control drive system, METE is directed toward the target marked by a laser pointer, providing effective strike power against light structures, unarmoured ground vehicles, unprotected targets such as possible sniper positions, and targets of opportunity.
