Issue 100

June 26, 2020. Bringing critical capabilities to the Turkish Armed Forces and Security General Directorate with the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robots it has been producing for nearly 25 years, Elektroland Defense is getting ready to launch the construction activities for the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robot Production, Test, Training and R&D Center in Gölbaşı/Ankara. The center to be built on the Ankara-Konya road will have a total area of 6,500 m², and the construction of the center, which will be established with a 30-year right of easement on the land allocated by the state, is expected to start in July this year and will be completed in four months.

A Test Unit will also be Available for Robots 

The new factory will contain a design workshop, production line with state-of-the-art CNC machines, and administrative offices. Tests of the produced robots and related systems will also be conducted in the Test Center to be established at the factory. An R&D center will also be available at the facility.

With a high level of field experience coupled with the feedback, requirements and experience of security forces, Elektroland Defence’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robots are still being used actively in the field by the EOD teams of the Turkish Armed Forces and Security General Directorate. Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robots have become one of the greatest supporters of many soldiers and security officers, especially in metropolitan areas and in the counter-terrorism zone within the country, and in cross-border operations in Iraq and Syria.  The EOD Robots also undertake critical tasks in many countries where they are exported.
