Domestic Engine for Turkey's Aircraft Arresting Systems Project 5 June, 2020

In accordance with the needs of the Turkish Air Force Command, The Presidency of Defence Industries initiated the Aircraft Arresting System Project. Within the scope of the project, SDT Space and Defence Technologies will deliver Aircraft Arresting Systems.

A procurement contract was signed between SDT and TÜMOSAN Motor and Tractor Industry for Rewind Engines to be integrated into the systems. TÜMOSAN will produce 40 engines.

The project includes fixed hooks, network barriers and mobile aircraft arresting systems.

The aircraft arresting systems, which are mandatory on military runways, absorb the kinetic energy of the platforms in case of an emergency landing, allowing them to be stopped.
