Aselsan Unveils Upgraded Missile Launching System at IDEX 2017

Turkish defence company Aselsan unveiled the upgraded missile launching system at IDEX 2017.

Missile Launching System (SLS) is a fully automated VSHORAD firing unit using air defense missiles. The main mission of SLS is the low level air defense of stationary and moving forward troops, convoys and tactical bases in the battlefield.
Besides autonomous operation the system architecture of SLS provides coordinated operation with C3I System.
The Fire Control Computer has a flexible software/hardware infrastructure in order to meet the future mission requirements that may evolve.

ASELSAN also has the modernization capability of land, air and naval platforms which requires specialized system engineering knowledge and experience. ASELSAN’s 42 years of experience is the primary asset to achieve successful integration and modernization projects.

ASELSAN sustains its activities in four facilities located in Ankara-Turkey with a workforce of more than 5000 employees of which 60% are engineers. Most of the engineers are being tasked solely on R&D activities.


Additionally ASELSAN finances concept projects by its own resources that would be in need of future requirements. By doing so, ASELSAN establishes an innovative corporate identity.
