Representative of the Turkish Aerospace Industry (TAI) presented the ANKA unmanned system to senior officials of the Argentinian military during a meeting in the country’s capital last week.
Besides the ANKA, TAI presented its portfolio of various fixed and rotary wing aircraft, unmanned aerial systems and observation and communications satellites to officials of Argentina’s three Armed Forces, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Ministry of Defense, a press release said today.
They presented a specific proposal for the ANKA unmanned system which can be used both for surveillance and combat operations, and for security and emergencies.
The proposal includes the possibility of productive cooperation agreements (also called offset) to integrate developments of the national industry. It should be noted that the TAI company currently has a joint venture with the Rio Negro company INVAP, for the joint development of communications satellites.
Present at the meeting were the Chief of Staff of the military portfolio, Héctor Mazzei; the Secretary of International Affairs for Defense, Francisco Cafiero; the Undersecretary of Scientific Research and Industrial Policy for Defense, Roberto Adaro; and the Undersecretary of Operational Planning and Defense Logistics Service, Joaquín Labarta Liprandi.
