Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAS) and Pakistan’s National Engineering and Science Commission (NESCOM) signed an agreement to produce components for a long-endurance drone developed by Ankara.
The deal came on the sidelines of the International Defence Industry Fair, which was held in Istanbul on Aug. 17-20. Within the scope of the agreement, the development of the Anka on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) will be ensured
The Anka drone developed by the TUSAS can carry out surveillance and attack missions. It is capable of carrying up to 200 kg of sensors or weapons like lightweight air-to-surface missiles.
“Thanks to this, our UAVs will be strengthened. It is very important that we continue our historical brotherhood for the achievements of both countries.
Through this agreement, we will implement the human resources cooperation we have made in the past years, as well. In addition, we will develop production and especially technological developments together,” Temel Kotil, head of the TUSAS said.
According to the deal, the TUSAS and NESCOM will be jointly responsible for employment, resource and technology transfer.
