ASELSAN stated that within the scope of the “35 mm Air Defense System Modernization (HSSM) and Particle Ammunition Supply (PMT) Contract”, 100 thousand ammunition electronics have been produced so far.
“ATOM 35 mm Particle Ammunition” achieves high strike accuracy thanks to its precise time counting and time scheduling capabilities corrected according to the measured ammunition output speed. Thus, barreled systems can be used as effective air defense weapons.
Modernized Towed Gun and KORKUT systems, when used with ATOM 35 mm Particle Ammunition, are effective against traditional air targets such as fighter jets and helicopters as well as modern air threats such as air-to-ground missiles, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.
ATOM 35 mm Particle Ammunition was developed under ASELSAN’s main contractor, Mechanical and Chemical Industry Institution and TÜBİTAK Defense Industry Research and Development Institute and became an important element of layered air defense.
A celebration was held with limited participation, taking into account the measures within the scope of the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic, regarding the completion of the production of 100 thousand ammunition electronics in the Automated Ammunition Electronics Production Line established in ASELSAN.
With the experience and knowledge gained within the scope of the project, a wide variety of calibers and types of smart ammunition can be developed in a short time.
