Stressing the depth of relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and ASELSAN, Chairman of the Board of Directors and General Manager Prof. Dr. Haluk Görgün said: “ASELSAN started working for Azerbaijan in the 1990s. When there was an increase in the fields of activity and services in Azerbaijan, ASELSAN Baku was established as our first company abroad, a wholly owned subsidiary of ASELSAN.”
“The modern communication equipment, smart ammunition and many different products supplied by ASELSAN to the Azerbaijan Armed Forces were widely and effectively used. ASELSAN products are widely used in Azerbaijan not only in the military field, but also in the civilian field. We do not see our work in Azerbaijan and Turkey as different from each other. ASELSAN is ready to take part in all kinds of electronic device and system needs of Azerbaijan,” he added.
