Aselsan delivers special radios to Turkish army
Turkish defense giant Aselsan announced on Wednesday that more than 1,300 software-defined radios have been delivered to the country’s armed forces.
“The Turkish defense industry has successfully fulfilled its order for the security forces,” said Ismail Demir, head of the country’s Defense Industry Department.
He said the radios would meet the needs of e-war.
With this latest technology, Turkey now ranks among those countries that produce its own national communication system for land, sea and air.
“Our country has managed to become a key player with this type of radio by exporting this technology to countries such as Pakistan, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Indonesia,” he said.
Aselsan’s original design created a common national encrypted and e-war-protected radio solution that the forces could use in joint operations.
With this, a high-speed solution for a wireless data network was implemented.
Aselsan is a company of the Turkish Armed Forces Foundation, established in 1975 to meet the communication needs of the Turkish Armed Forces with national funds.
