HAVELSAN, which aims to take the defence power of the Turkish Naval Forces to the next level, has been acting as the strategic partner of the Turkish Naval Forces in the field of Combat Management System for years.

It is possible to access to tactical data link (Link 11, Link 16 and Link 22, SIMPLE, JREAP and VMF) functions fully integrated with ADVENT through all operator consoles.

With its decision support systems ADVENT has an architecture that facilitates the speed and correct decision-making process of its user and provides flexible structure in the use of new weapons and sensors. It has been developed in a modular structure that fits in multi-task profiles and other platform types. ADVENT is a platform independent system. With its scalable open architecture structure; ADVENT can be adapted to surface, underwater and air platforms and land facilities.

As Turkey’s one and only, sole source proven combat management system provider, HAVELSAN has not only contributed to the Turkish Navy in improving its deterrence power but also strengthened its competitiveness in global markets. Because of several domestic projects HAVELSAN has successfully completed over the last 15 years, HAVELSAN has gained technological knowledge and experience valued by global players as well.

ADVENT has features that have been successful integrated in all platforms of the Turkish Naval Forces, which have attracted the attention of friendly and allied countries. –shp/adj/aaa (Image: HAVELSAN)
