Feasibility Studies Started for Domestic AWACSWork has started for domestic AWACS production. According to the information obtained , feasibility studies have started for the domestic production of AWACS, namely Airborne Early Warning and Control (HIK) Aircraft, which the Air Force Command plans to use in the future.
AWACS aircraft, which enable air, land and surface naval platforms to be detected from long distances without being stuck on the horizon line of the world, include an advanced radar and are considered among strategic weapon systems, are among the indispensables of air combat. (See NATIONAL COMBATIVE AIRCRAFT (MMU) )
Boeing-manufactured E-7T aircraft, which have been successfully performing their duties since they entered service in 2015, are among the most critical and advanced systems available to the Air Force Command. However, this does not prevent the Turkish Air Force from procuring a domestic Airborne Early Warning and Control Aircraft whose critical data are known only to Turkey.
As a result of the developing defense industry ecosystem, many of our companies, especially Military Electronics Industry (ASELSAN) and Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAŞ), develop important technologies in the field of aircraft and electronic systems. Domestic AESA radars, which will be used in domestic platforms such as electronic warfare aircraft Hava SOJ and F-16, Bayraktar Akıncı, MİUS , Hürjet and National Combat Aircraft, can be given as an example to this situation.
The Integrated RF System (BURFIS), developed by ASELSAN for the National Combat Aircraft, is the most advanced air-based AESA radar being developed in our country. Sanalsavunma.com, on the other hand, within the scope of the right to obtain information to learn whether our defense industry will undertake a larger project after this advanced radar, " Will the Air Force Command have a domestic AWACS hysteria? ” was asked to the Defense Planning and Project Management Presidency.
"Feasibility studies have been started on the subject and the public will be informed according to the results."
