Turkish defense giant Aselsan and drone magnate Baykar signed a new contract worth $17.6 million, both companies announced Wednesday.

Aselsan made a related statement to the Public Disclosure Platform (KAP).

“An order has been received by Aselsan from Baykar Makina for the delivery of the Electro-Optical System in the amount of $17.5 million. Deliveries will be made in 2023-2024 within the scope of the order,” the statement included.

Meanwhile, Haluk Bayraktar, general manager at Baykar said on his Twitter account that following the embargo by Canada on Baykar’s acquiring of electro-optical systems, which came after the Baykar-made unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) used by Azerbaijan in liberating Karabakh, they now started to use the domestically-developed Aselsan system, Common Aperture Targeting System (CATS).

Our national camera CATS has been exported to 12 different countries so far, he also said, noting that they join hands and “overcome each challenge together.”
