Havelsan and Lockheed Martin Demonstrate Feasibility of Turkish - Aegis Combat System

Issue 45

Lockheed Martin successfully united the capabilities of its Aegis Weapon System with the naval combat management capabilities of leading Turkish defence company Havelsan.  The results of this effort were demonstrated during a naval combat system mock-up at the International Defence Industry Fair (IDEF) 2013.

Lockheed Martin and Havelsan  signed a memorandum of agreement to collaborate on naval combat systems in 2011. Since that time, the companies have worked together to develop interfaces between their respective system components and have combined their technologies in a laboratory environment, which Havelsan demonstrated publicly for the first time during IDEF 2013.
