Turkey’s leading defense company Aselsan has signed a contract worth $43.6 million to supply communications systems to Ukraine.
The contract involves procurement of ASELSAN Software Defined Military Radio Family products, software defined architecture, multiple waveforms and electronic protection measures against electronic warfare threats, the press release says.
Deliveries under the agreement will be made in 2018, it added.
A memorandum of understanding between the Turkish Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM) and the Ukrainian state industrial enterprise Ukroboronprom was signed during a visit by Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman to Turkey in March.
Another memorandum of understanding was signed between SSM and Ukroboronprom for the “development and production of aircraft and composite materials” at the 13th International Defense Industry Fair in May this year.
