HAVELSAN, one of the leading technology companies in Turkish defence industry, displayed cutting-edge technologies at IDEF’21.
Within the scope of the swarm algorithm, HAVELSAN has developed Digital Troops in which unmanned autonomous aerial and ground vehicles can perform joint operations was exhibited for the first time at the show. The major elements of Digital Troops, namely Armed Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle BARKAN, Unmanned Autonomous Aerial Vehicle BAHA, and Micro Reconnaissance UAV System M6, were introduced to trade visitors.
HAVELSAN also demonstrated its competencies in naval command, control, and combat management systems.
The company also debuted the Airborne Early Warning and Control System KARTAL to the public and keep visitors updated on the Peace Eagle Project, in which it plays an important role.
One of the most crucial roles that HAVELSAN played in IDEF’21 was providing this international fair with contact-free and digital communication in light of the strict procedures with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic .
HAVELSAN, the Digital Communication Sponsor of IDEF’21, provided all participants with the opportunity to meet customers who could not attend the fair via HAVELSAN Diyalog at the Digital Communication Centre, established at the exhibition area, free of charge.
In addition, the company also made secure data storage and sharing platform “HAVELSAN Drive” available to users. By scanning the QR codes, the users could access all promotional materials uploaded to the HAVELSAN Drive Platform by participating companies of IDEF’21. This contact-free fair experience brought upon by HAVELSAN is a significant achievement in terms of the digital fair concept of the future.
The Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Information System developed by HAVELSAN was positioned in certain locations of the fairground for the first time at IDEF’21 to detect CBRN threats and dangers. HAVELSAN, a company adopting a holistic approach to safety and security, played a significant role in contributing to the safety and security expectations of the IDEF audience through its advanced technologies.
Having developed various technologies for surface and underwater platforms, HAVELSAN presented a futuristic work to the public. In this context, the Submarine Combat Operations Centre (SCOC) concept design, prepared with 3D modelling, was introduced for the first time at IDEF’21.
HAVELSAN also signed many new agreements during IDEF’21 to expand collaborations. Owing to these agreements, HAVELSAN took the first steps not only towards new technologies and new markets but also to strengthen its presence in the existing markets.
Another dimension within the scope of IDEF was the panels organised by companies. In this context, HAVELSAN’s panel on the “Armies of the Future: Digital Forces” was among the most important topics which left a substantial impact on the participants.
In addition, HAVELSAN made two presentations under themes of “Digital Transformation through Enterprise Architecture” and “Coastal Surveillance and Maritime Traffic Management Systems”, respectively.
