Turkish firm Aselsan has entered into an agreement with Ukrainian Antonov company to supply avionics to ‘Antonov’ branded aircraft.
An agreement to this effect was reached during a meeting between representatives of Aselsan, Istanbul Technical University (ITU) and Antonov Aircraft Company in Ukraine last week. The delegation was headed by Prof. Ibrahim OZKOL, Chairman of the Board Directors of Aselsan.
The agreement covers integration of Aselsan−produced avionics, including autopilot system, into Antonov aircraft. Further cooperation in this important direction will provide additional advantages for Antonov aircraft, especially in the markets of Middle East and Asian region.
A press statement from Antonov did not specify the model of aircraft which will be equipped with Aselsan avionics. However, Antonov’s most promising aircraft currently is the AN-132 which it is developing in cooperation with a Saudi Arabian firm which is expected to capitalize on the large market in the Middle East for military transport aircraft.
