Designed around a latest-generation integrated tactical command system, the AMASCOS solution ties together multiple sensors – radar, FLIR, ESM, acoustic system, AIS, MAD, SLAR radar, IR/UV scanner – to detect, identify and track threats, maintain real-time tactical situation awareness, manage NATO and national tactical datalinks and deploy onboard weapon systems.

Pierre Eric Pommellet, Senior Vice President of Thales in charge of Defence Mission Systems, officially handed over the delivery certificate for the aircraft to the Chief of Staff of the Turkish Navy. On this occasion, he highlighted the “strong relationships that have been established throughout the programme with Turkish industry partners, TAI, Havelsan, Aselsan and Milsoft. These have enabled the success of this aircraft transformation programme and pave the way for future partnerships between Thales and the Turkish industry. We’re focusing on developing this close cooperation and are very proud these maritime patrol aircraft reach a technological and operational standard of excellence. The Turkish Navy can now rely on Thales’s state-of-the-art AMASCOS solution to conduct their maritime patrol missions.”

The finalisation of this programme is a further testament to the maturity of the AMASCOS solution and consolidates Thales’s position as a market leader in maritime patrol systems and as a world-class systems supplier and integrator, offering a wide range of mission systems to meet the specific requirements of armed forces.
