ANKARA — Turkey has engaged with a major U.S. ballistic missile defense project.
Turkey’s state-owned Havelsan has been participating in the U.S. Aegis program, designed to intercept ballistic missiles from the sea. Havelsan has contributed naval combat management capabilities to enhance Aegis, led by Lockheed Martin.
Aegis has been procured by the navies of Australia, Japan, Norway, Spain and the United States. L-M did not say how the Havelsan management system differed from other Aegis models.
“We’ve now witnessed in real time how well our systems work together, which also speaks to the strong and significant partnership of our two companies within the industry,” Carl Bannar, a vice president at Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Training business, said.
The partnership was demonstrated during a naval combat system mockup at IDEF-2013 in Istanbul in May. Executives said Havelsan and L-M — which in 2011 signed an agreement to cooperate on naval combat systems — developed interfaces to combine their technologies in what was meant to be marketed to Middle East states, particularly the Gulf Cooperation Council.
“We have demonstrated that we can enhance our existing naval combat management system capabilities by using data from the naval radar, Spy-1,” Havelsan chief executive officer Sadik Yamac said.
Yamac said Havelsan, a contractor for the Turkish Navy, leveraged the capabilities of Aegis to produce what he termed a “total naval combat system for the most stressing operational requirements of many countries.” The executive did not report any Turkish Navy interest in Aegis, which was preparing to receive a new interceptor variant, SM-3 Block 1B.
“The combined technology of Turkish-Aegis combat system can be a considerable solution for the countries in Middle East region and some other countries,” L-M said on May 9.
