New Target for ANKA: Indonesia

Another important outing for Turkish Aerospace in November was the INDO DEFENCE exhibition. Taking part in the exhibition held in Jakarta, Indonesia, on November 7–10, the company showcased a full-scale mock-up of its ANKA unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The company is actively promoting ANKA as a solution to Indonesia’s requirement for a satellite-controlled, medium-altitude, long-endurance UAV system. Having organised the Turkey-Indonesia Cooperation Days event earlier this year, the company is seeking to strengthen its bilateral defence and aerospace collaborations with both Indonesia and the countries of the region.

Turkish Aerospace also made the news in November as the recipient of a number of awards for its projects. Among these, the company’s HÜRKUŞ-A Basic and Primary Trainer Aircraft Project took the Grand Technology Award at the 13th outing of the Technology Awards –  an event co-organised by TÜBİTAK, TTGV and TÜSİAD that aims to encourage the development of innovative products and processes.
