Turkey's Aselsan has signed an agreement to develop Active Protection System (AKKOR) for the Turkish Land Forces (TLF) for US $57 million.
The delivery of the AKKOR will be made in 2020, the company said in a statement Monday.
This system will be used in Turkey’s local tank, the Altay, as reported by Anadolu Agency.
The project will include design, development, testing and qualification and production of two Prototype-1 and two Prototype-2 prototypes with delivery of the prototypes to SSM.
The AKKOR system will provide a complete protection shield and will have the capacity of perceiving any threats immediately through its high-technology radar systems. Each radar sensor continuously scans a 100-degree arc, creating a full 360 degree detection capability with some overlap.
