Meteksan Defence Exports Radar Altimeter to an Asian Country

Tarih: Issue 96 - December 2019

Meteksan Defence has scored another export success. The company signed a new export contract with an undisclosed Asian country in September to provide radar altimeters for air platforms.

The Radar altimeters were developed and produced indigenously by Meteksan Defence under military standards, and are designed to accurately measure the altitudes of fast-moving or maneuvering aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, and guided missiles even at low altitudes. The Radar altimeters, which can operate in a wide frequency band, have low power output, Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) capability, and a power control mechanism that automatically adjusts according to the altitude. The Radar altimeters, which are designed, developed, and produced with national resources in accordance with military standards, have successfully passed environmental conditions tests (MIL-STD-810F), Electromagnetic Interference/Electromagnetic Compatibility tests (MIL-STD-461E) and flight tests and have been qualified.

Meteksan Defence, one of the few companies with this technology in the world, introduced its radar altimeter product family in 2016 and achieved great success with its first export to a Far East country in 2017. With the contract signed in September this year, radar altimeters developed by Meteksan Defence have accomplished yet another export success for the second time.
