Export success from ASELSAN’s ‘sharp eyes in the air’

The first exports of the GÖZDE and ASELFLIR-500 systems developed by ASELSAN in response to the embargoes were realized.

Electro-optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting systems developed by ASELSAN in response to embargoes are contributing to the country both in the operational field and through high value-added exports.

The company announced that it has signed three separate export contracts for guidance kits and ASELFLIR-500 system worth 35 million 130 thousand dollars.

With these contracts, the first exports of the GÖZDE guidance kit and ASELFLIR-500 will be realized.

The GÖZDE guidance kit, developed jointly by ASELSAN and TÜBİTAK SAGE, started to enter the inventory last year.

GÖZDE converts MK-82 general purpose bombs in the 500-pound class into INS/GPS and Laser Seeker (LAB) guided munitions, enabling precise hitting of fixed and high-speed moving (50-120 kilometers/hour) targets.

The GÖZDE guidance kit was certified for F-16 and F-4 aircraft, and its integration into Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA was completed.

ASELFLIR-500 is one of the most important examples of nationalization efforts

The ASELFLIR-500 Electro-Optical Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Targeting System is one of the most important examples of the Turkish defence industry’s nationalization efforts.

ASELFLIR-500, whose first mass-produced products appeared in February, is rapidly being integrated into national air vehicles.

ASELFLIR-500, which surpasses its competitors with its image clarity and enables more precise detection of targets, will increase the success of operations and contribute to the national economy with high value-added exports.p^p

ASELFLIR-500, which outperformed the products in its class in tests conducted with national UCAVs, sets an important example for high value-added products with an export kilogram value of $20,000.
