A contract named “TAF Multi-Band Digital Joint Radio Supply” was signed between ASELSAN and Presidency of Defence Industries to provide the tactical and strategic needs of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF). According to the contract, HF and V / UHF Radio are produced.
Deliveries are expected to continue in 2019-2024.
More than 1300 software-based radios were delivered to the TAF within the scope of the contract. Defence Industry President İsmail Demir made a statement regarding the delivery on his social media account:
“More than 1300 software-based radios produced by ASELSAN have been delivered to Turkish Armed Forces. We provide TAF’s common national encrypted, electronic warfare protected, high speed wireless data network need with manpack, vehicular and fixed type radios. Turkey has taken its place -in all the land, air and sea platforms- among the few countries which develop and improve their own national and original telecommunication systems. Our country has managed to become one of the important exporters in the world with this radio family by exporting the latest technological software-based radios to countries such as Pakistan, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Indonesia.”
Multi-Band Digital Joint Radio Systems, one of ASELSAN’s most important export products, are currently being used in the armed forces of Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Indonesia and Uruguay. Also, these radios are produced in Pakistan and Indonesia.
