First steps in Turkey towards gaining design and production capabilities of illumination systems for aircrafts was achieved when we won a tender called by TUSAŞ for producing interior and exterior lightings of the Europe-wide project, A400M Military Transport Aircraft.
We also conduct the tuning of interior and exterior illumination systems for night vision systems (NVIS-Night Vision Instrumentation System as required in scope of Turkish Air Force’s “Modernisation of C-130 Avionic Systems” (Erciyes) project as the subcontractor of TUSAŞ, alongside with our successfully continued A400M product development and production. These new assets are primarily utilised in HÜRKUŞ New Generation Training Aircraft and more projects, while the design and production operations for internal and external illuminations and cockpit dashboards are successfully going underway.
