Tukey's military electronics company ASELSAN has for the first time exported depth-measuring sonar systems to Indonesia.

The latest addition to Turkey's booming defense exports of recent years, ASELSAN will export its KULAÇ Bathometer System, as used in Turkish submarines, to Indonesia's Naval Forces Command.

It also "analyzes multi-target signals and automatically or manually generates an appropriate response," according to ASELSAN.

Defense Industry Undersecretary İsmail Demir highlighted the importance of electronic systems given the numerous crises in the world.

"We've seen how important electronic warfare is in recent wars," he said, adding, "We have full determination to continue existing efforts to equip our security forces with the most modern weapons."

Turkey has increased efforts in recent years to eliminate dependency on external suppliers for its defense industry.

Ankara has spent over $1 billion on defense, research and development in 2014, making defense the sector with the largest research and development investment in the country.

DCNS signed a memorandum of understanding to modernize the Indonesian navy

With its GDP growth of 5% in 2016, Indonesia is undoubtedly one of the most economically dynamic countries in Southeast Asia. At the same time, after years of arms embargo imposed by the United States between 1991 and 2005, due to the situation in Timor, the needs of the Indonesian armed forces are significant. Hence, the goal of Jakarta to bring its military spending to $ 20 billion by the end of the decade. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), they have already increased by 150% between 2006 and 2015.

Also, the Indonesian defense market has something to appeal to European and French weapons manufacturers. Recently, Nexter was awarded a new contract to deliver an additional 18 CAESARs (truck equipped with an artillery system) after a first order for 37 aircraft. And, a few days ago, Jakarta confirmed its intention to acquire A400M Atlas transport aircraft from Airbus.

In the maritime sector, DCNS is no exception. On the sidelines of President Hollande's visit to Indonesia on 30 March, the French industrialist signed a memorandum of understanding with the PT PAL shipbuilding company to strengthen their cooperation in submarine and surface The framework of the Franco-Indonesian Defense Dialogue (IFDD).

It has now been a few years since DCNS hopes to deliver Scorpene 1000 submarines to Jakarta. This ship "is particularly suitable for the Indonesian navy, given that it is an archipelago", explained the French shipbuilder in October 2015. "This submarine was designed to navigate And it is very difficult to detect because of the shallow depth of the coastal waters, " he also said.

Currently, the Indonesian Navy has two Type 209 submarines of German origin. And three more, acquired from South Korea, will soon be put into operation.

In a statement announcing the signing of this Memorandum of Understanding, DCNS recalls that it has already cooperated with PT PAL in recent years to "identify the best industrial solution for today offering a multi-purpose submarine Of the last generation of the Scorpene class ". It is now a question of going further by studying new possibilities concerning corvettes and frigates, ie the Gowind 2500, the FREMM, and even the Intermediate Size Frigates (FTI).

"As a European leader in naval combat systems, warship designer and builder, DCNS is committed to establishing long-term partnerships with Indonesian industry to enhance its capabilities and capabilities on high-tech systems "Commented Hervé Guillou, the CEO of DCNS.

"Our cooperation with the biggest PT PAL shipyard in Indonesia illustrates this ambition and we look forward to bringing our strong expertise in technology transfers to complex naval programs to develop industrial and The operational capacity of the Indonesian Navy."

Turkish Tank Will Join TNI Anniversary Parade

AHMAD FIKRI / TEMPO.CO, Bandung - PT Pindad CEO said a prototype of Indonesia and Turkey - made medium tank will be shown during the Parade of TNI Anniversary on October 5.

"We made 2 prototypes, one is already finished in Turkey and will be brought to Indonesia to participate in the October 5th Parade," said Pindad President Director Abraham Mose in Bandung, July 31.

Abraham said the tanks are developed with FNSS, the Turkish defense equipment manufacturer, and would then undergo weapon testing in Indonesia. "Next, we will do 'blasting-test' in Indonesia," he said.

According to him, the "blasting-test" was to test the reliability of the 105-millimeter caliber cannon that became the main weapon of the tank. "Our 'blasting-test' results will be corrected to the final. Pindad says it really is a 'first-article', not a prototype, "he said.

Abraham said, in cooperation with the FNSS, the plan will be to create 2 prototypes. "The development of each issue costs a US $150 billion. [The fund] not from Pindad but from the Defense Ministry," he said.

The completed prototype exhibited in Turkey still requires a series of testing processes, including weapon testing. The medium-sized tank plan with Pindad-FNSS will be equipped with a 105-millimeter main gun and 2 additional calibers of 7.62 millimeters and 12.7 millimeters. "The prototype that we will build in Indonesia is complete," he said.

The medium tank class was designed under the Leopard main battle tank, owned by Indonesia. "The class could be under Leopard, but the maneuver is better. And our benchmark is to use a cannon caliber 105 millimeters. This is perfect for infantry, as well as cavalry, "said Abraham.

The development of the tank used the joint funding between Indonesia and Turkey. "Because of our mutual funding cooperation, both have an interest. The determination of the machine is in their hands but we've certainly involved in the discussion. There are some requests that we have not been accommodated because it is still a joint development," he said.

Local content of tanks made by Pindad-FNSS was targeted to penetrate 40 percent. "The machine is still Cartepilar. We have to admit the total machine was bought from there. But the design and other supporting parts come from us," said Abraham.

The Pindad CEO admitted the government has discussed the purchase of the tank. At a minimum, the TNI will order 20 units of the tank.

About the price, Abraham admitted they still do not know. "At least, (the price) under Leopard will probably be equivalent to the Czech-made Pandur, or the latest Korean tanks," said the Pindad CEO.
