Turkish Aselsan has showcased a new exoskeleton system at the IDEF 2017 exhibition.

The new exoskeleton system is called ASYA, an acronym for the Turkish phrase, “Askeri Yürüyüş Asistanı,” which means Military Walking Assistant.

ASYA was designed to increase the performance of soldiers and policemen by facilitating walking, running, climbing and jumping. It transfers the load bearing effort from the leg and arm muscles to the battery powered mechanical appendages strapped to the sides of the body.

The Turkish Armed Forces expects ASYA to enhance the mobility of its combat infantry and the Special Forces Command. ASYA will also benefit the men of the Gendarmerie of the Turkish Republic, an armed general law enforcement organization that maintains security, safety and public order.
