ALTOY Defense Industry & Aviation Inc., The Only Turkish Company in Iraq International Defense Fair

ALTOY Defense Industry & Aviation Inc. was the only Turkish company in the 4th International Defense Industry & Aviation Fair held in Iraq. Turkey’s Ambassador to Baghdad, Faruk Kaymakci, who attended to the opening ceremony of the international fair stated that Iraq is passing through a very difficult period.

Emphasizing the importance of companies operating in the defense industry showcasing their technologies to the military personnel of a country fighting with terrorism, Ambassador Kaymakci said:

“Unfortunately, one third of the country’s land is under the control of ISIS terrorist organization. While this fair is taking place, operations in Tikrit are going on. Companies from 20 countries have participated to the fair. It’s important to see ALTOY, an outstanding company from Turkey, among them. In particular, ALTOY is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) manufacturer. Iraq needs UAVs for intelligence acquisition and surveillance of terrorist movements, as well.”

Aselsan, AeroVironment and Altoy Defence Industries and Aviation Inc. Collaborate on Unmanned Aircraft System Information Services for Oil and Gas Industry

ALTOY Defense Industries and Aviation Inc., a Turkish joint venture partially owned by AeroVironment, AeroVironment Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV), a worldwide technology solutions provider and leader in unmanned aircraft systems and ASELSAN Inc., Turkey's leading defense electronics provider and the world's 67th largest defense company, announced their collaboration to deliver end-to-end, comprehensive unmanned aircraft system (UAS)-based information services supporting oil industry operations.

On June 8, 2014, AeroVironment and a global energy company launched the first United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved, commercial unmanned aircraft operations over American soil at the Prudhoe Bay oil field on Alaska's North Slope. AeroVironment's Puma AE™ UAS, in combination with the company's highly skilled system operators, advanced sensors and cloud-based data processing and analytics, deliver high resolution information, on-demand, to improve the safety and reliability of Prudhoe Bay oilfield infrastructure and maintenance programs.

The AeroVironment, ALTOY and ASELSAN team will be deploying a custom integrated LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor provided by ASELSAN. This will be coupled with Electro-Optics and IR sensors to support ongoing oilfield operations. The sensor payloads produce imagery and data for processing into 3D computerized models of roads, pads and pipelines and other valuable information, including precision volumetric measurement and topographic analysis of gravel pits at the North Slope field.

This first-of-its-kind solution is available for the following oil and gas missions:

  • Infrastructure and maintenance inspection – bridge and road inspections and change detection
  • Security – tracking intruders, perimeter security, personnel security and location monitoring
  • Environmental and regulatory compliance – pipeline inspection, environmental and wildlife monitoring
  • Emergency response – search and rescue, damage assessment and oil spill detection
  • Surveying and GIS data – three dimensional modeling, topography, watershed analysis

The Companies also agreed to broaden their collaborative efforts even further to include a wider scale of UAS applications and to enter new domains such as transportation systems and electric vehicles.
