Aselsan to Provide V/UHF Electronic Support System for Turkish Land Forces Command’s Electronic Warfare Command, Control and Coordination System

The Electronic Warfare Command Control and Coordination System of the Land Forces Command and the V-UHF Electronic Support System Project was signed between Aselsan and the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries on 29 March 2017.

Date: Issue 74 - May 2017

With the completion of the Electronic Warfare Command, Control and Coordination System project, the objective is to develop a joint system that will enable more effective use of the different Electronic Warfare systems already existing and to those to exist in the inventory of Land Forces Command in the future. Thus, the Electronic Warfare command elements will be able to evaluate acquired information faster and more accurately, and the obtained Electronic Warfare information will be conveyed to the affiliated troops and major commanders in a timely manner.

The EHKKKS system will be fully developed with local industry capabilities and the related deliveries under the Agreement are scheduled to occur between 2020 and 2022.

Within the scope of the V/UHF Electronic Support Systems Agreement signed concurrently, the Turkish Armed Forces will be able to detect, monitor and track threatening communication signals. The design, development and production of these systems will be accomplished entirely by local resources. The establishment of the Training School for the system and related training will also be provided to the Land Forces Command within the framework of this Agreement.
