Issue 110

A Multistatic Sonar Suite Development Protocol for the TF-2000 Air Defense Warfare Destroyer was signed between the Presidency of Defense Industries, ASELSAN and ARMELSAN. President of Defense Industries Prof. İsmail DEMİR, President and CEO of Aselsan Prof. Haluk GÖRGÜN and Chairman of the Board of Armelsan Defense Yetkin KARAKAŞ attended the TF2000 Sonar Suite Protocol signing ceremony. Speaking at the ceremony, President of Defense Industries Prof. İsmail DEMIR said, “With the protocol signed, it will be possible to detect underwater threats in a wide area by ensuring the interoperability of the frequency band compatible sonar systems on the same ship or on other surface ships. In the medium frequency hull-mounted sonar system to be developed, the know-how and infrastructure obtained from the FERSAH system, which was developed by ASELSAN as part of the Barbaros Class Half-Life Modernization Project and the Factory Acceptance Tests of which were completed, will be used to the full extent. ARMELSAN will be the main subcontractor in the project, which will be executed by ASELSAN, as the main contractor.”
