The Agreement that Will Hide TF-X from The Radar 26 December, 2019

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAS) and TÜBİTAK BİLGEM signed a contract for the near field test facility within the scope of the Turkish Fighter Programme (TF-X). The agreement will establish the cross-sectional radar area of the TF-X at TUSAŞ campus and test the aircraft.


The General Manager of TUSAŞ. Dr Temel Kotil and TÜBİTAK BİLGEM President Dr Hacı Ali Mantar signed the contract. With the agreement, TAI will have established an infrastructure capable of testing 20-25 meters long aircraft. Radar trace measurements at the facility, which is expected to be installed in 2021, will pave the way for TF-X to be used in design and development activities.


Prof Kotil Speaking about the contract, "TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Turkey's most important projects of infrastructure investment we have made for TF-X will be a first in Turkey. We hope that the cross-sectional radar facility for the 5th generation TF-X, which is only available in four countries in the world, will be beneficial. We believe that the importance we attach to the development activities of the most important project of our country will be better with the local collaborations we have realised. ”
