Airbus Group and ASELSAN sign collaboration framework agreement
Airbus Group and ASELSAN today signed a framework agreement on the sidelines of the ILA air show to mark the first step towards future collaboration on civil and military avionic systems, satellite communication systems, electro-optic and laser systems, and secure radio communications.
By joining forces through this agreement, both Groups aim at gaining a distinct competitive edge in accessing new markets and further consolidating their position as leading avionics and aeronautics manufacturers.
ASELSAN Chairman of the Board Hasan Canpolat said: “In addition to its leading role in the Turkish electronics industry, ASELSAN will achieve greater access to global markets through its partnership with Airbus Group. We believe that the synergies generated through this long-term collaboration will deliver innovative solutions and contribute to the worldwide success of both our companies.”
The collaboration framework will be institutionalized by creating a Coordination Committee and by setting up working groups represented by both parties. It has further been agreed that the scope of cooperation may be expanded beyond the applications specified above.
