The national fighter will be equipped with ASELSAN technology

The Turkish Air and Space Industry (TAI), the main contractor for the National Aircraft Development Project (NMF), continues to work on the development of aircraft to be included in the Turkish Air Force inventory in 2030.

In addition, TAI will make the most of the Turkish ecosystem to develop the necessary systems and subsystems in the aircraft manufacturing process. ASELSAN solutions have an important place in the systems to be purchased from Turkey.

ASELSAN will develop national radar, electronic combat and electro-optical systems for aircraft. Along with the work to be done, the critical mission systems required for MMU are to be developed at the national level and integrated into aircraft in order to gain full operational capability at the appropriate stages during the project.

At the end of last year, the Integrated Communication Navigation Recognition Project of National Combat Aircraft was launched between ASELSAN and TAI for the needs of aircraft air communication systems. In this context, it is aimed to bring the works to the stage of MMU Preliminary Design Review. In addition, work has begun on list documents that require contract information.

ASELSAN continues engineering work for MMU’s Integrated Electro-Optical Systems Technology Development Project. In addition, development work is underway for both MWIR and LWIR (Long Wave Infrared) MCT detectors.

Both critical technology development and product demand identification activities within electronic warfare systems continue with the MMU Integrated RF System Development Project.

ASELSAN continues to work for the integration of national ammunition into the MMU. Under the agreement signed with TAI, it aims to integrate Miniature Bomb, Smart Multi-Relief and Laser-guided bomb into MMU.

ASELSAN and TAI are also negotiating a contract for Flight Control System Sensors and Helmet Integre Screen. It is planned to start work on this issue in 2021 with the signing of the agreement.

With the MMU Project, Turkey will be among the countries with the infrastructure and technology to produce 5th generation fighter jets as a result of work in areas such as low visibility, built-in weapons, high maneuverability. , increased condition consciousness and sensory fusion.
