Turkish Aerospace Industries has incorporated a new capability in the structural field in the A400M program. kazannagged. Turkish Aerospace Industries, integrating the structural parts of the "Directed Infrared Countermeasure" (DIRCM) system, which was applied for the first time to the MSN 400 tail numbered aircraft of the A105M in the past days, thanks to the system, can detect incoming missiles via a missile warning unit and can be used as a hand-held aircraft. missiles directed to the A400M aircraft, even from defense systems, can be destroyed.
Together with Airbus Defense and Space, of which it is a partner of more than 5 percent, for the first time in the program of A400M aircraft, "From Picture to Production", that is, the production technology with ready design data, "From Design to Production", that is, the design data is created by Turkish Aerospace Industries.
Turkish Aerospace Industries manages the production and delivery processes of 405 detail and sub-assembly parts for the DIRCM Project. The system, which provides 360-degree protection to the aircraft with the DIRCM hardware to be integrated, will be able to detect multiple missiles at the same time with its multi-target capability.
Currently in the A400 M program, the design and execution of the front-mid fuselage, tail cone and rear fuselage upper panel, fins / speed brakes, parachutist & emergency exit doors, final assembly line management/support, as well as all fuselage wiring, lighting and water/waste systems Turkish Aerospace Industries, which has also undertaken the first degree design and supply responsibility of the manufacturing, all interior and exterior lighting systems, waste/clean water systems except the cockpit, DIRCM structural design and analysis, equipment assembly design, retrofit solution design, detail part production , assembly and production of a total of 2 km of new cables for each aircraft. kazannagged.
Sharing his views on the integrated "Directed Infrared Countermeasure" project, Turkish Aerospace Industries General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said, “We continue to contribute to the aviation capabilities of our country by integrating the infrastructure of a new generation technology into the A400M aircraft for the first time. We continue our flawless production and delivery processes in the A400M program, which is among the largest aircraft in the world. I congratulate my co-workers for their hard work," he said.
Turkish Aerospace Industries, which has a business share of more than 400 percent in the A7M program, has produced a total of 176 aircraft sets in the project, which includes 400 A135M aircraft, and has shipped them to Airbus Defense and Space.
