Turkish defense “Meteksan” is set to exhibit its innovative products including Electronic Systems at IDEAS 2022. The IDEAS 2022 Exhibition, which has become a meeting point in the defence industry sector, especially with the Armed Forces of Asian countries, will be held in Karachi, Pakistan between 15-18 November 2022. Meteksan Defence will participate in this important exhibition with its high technology and innovative products.
The products that Meteksan Defence will exhibit at IDEAS 2022 are listed as follows:
- YAKAMOS 2020 Hull Mounted Sonar System
- ULAQ Unmanned Surface Vehicles
- MILSAR SAR/MTI Radar
- KAPAN Counter Drone System
- NAZAR Laser Electronic Warfare System
- PELIKAN RF Missile Seeker Simulator
- Retinar PTR Ground Surveillance Radar
- MERT Portable Electronic Attack System
- MERTER Man-Pack Portable Electronic Attack System
- Sonar Systems
- Tactical Data Link System
- Missile and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Subsystems
Selçuk Kerem Alparslan, President of Meteksan Defence, made the following statement regarding their participation in the exhibition “As you know, we exported our YAKAMOS 2020 Hull Mounted Sonar System for PN MILGEM Project to Pakistan which is the further developed version of YAKAMOS Sonar of Turkish MILGEM Corvettes. I believe that the success of YAKAMOS 2020, which will soon start serving with Pakistan Navy Corvettes, is of great importance for our company and our country.
With the IDEAS 2022 Exhibition, we will also be exhibiting our MERT and MERTER products for the first time at an international exhibition. At Meteksan Defence, we are conducting very important projects on Electronic Warfare. We expect MERTER, the first output of these efforts, to enter the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces in the near future. Especially the recent global conflicts have once again shown us how vital the field of Electronic Warfare is for all countries. For this reason, I believe that especially MERT and MERTER will attract the attention of the delegations and visitors at IDEAS 2022.
As you know, the sonar systems, front electronics, signal processing hardware and software developed by Meteksan Defence for underwater platforms are being successfully used by the Turkish Navy. I believe that these proven systems can also take part in manned/unmanned new submarine projects and also modernization projects of submarine platforms.
Finally, I can say that the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle and missile subsystems, which we will be exhibiting at IDEAS 2022, are also among the most critical issues. Due to their nature, these platforms are among the critical technologies, both as a product and with their subsystems. Many countries do not share these critical technologies with other countries or share them under very strict rules and restrictions. Meteksan Defence, on the other hand, acts with a sharing policy based on strategic cooperation for the use of these solutions, on the platforms of friendly and allied countries.”
Meteksan Defence will welcome its visitors in Hall 1, Stand A23 at IDEAS 2022.
