ASELSAN produces ATOM 35 mm Particle Ammunition within the scope of the 35 mm Air Defense System Modernization (HSSM) and Particle Ammunition Supply (PMT) Contract under the leadership of the Defense Industry Presidency. Under the contract signed on December 29, 2017, 100 thousand Ammunition Electronics have been produced in ASELSAN facilities so far.
ATOM 35 mm Particle Ammunition achieves high strike accuracy thanks to its precise time counting and time scheduling capabilities corrected according to the measured ammunition output speed. Thus, barreled systems can be used as effective air defense weapons. Modernized Towed Gun and KORKUT Systems, when used with ATOM 35 mm Particle Ammunition, provide effectiveness against traditional air targets such as fighter jets and helicopters, as well as modern air threats such as air-to-ground missiles, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles. ATOM 35mm Particle Ammunition was developed under ASELSAN's prime contractor together with MKEK and TÜBİTAK SAGE and became an important element of layered air defense.
Production of 100 thousand Ammunition Electronics was completed in the Automated Ammunition Electronics Production Line established in ASELSAN. After the production of 100th Ammunition Electronics, the production line was celebrated with limited participation, taking into account the COVID-19 measures.
With the experience and knowledge gained within the scope of the project, it is possible to develop a wide variety of calibers and types of smart ammunition in a short time.
