ASELSAN X-Ray Baggage Scanners are also to be used at Tokat Airport. ASELSAN X-Ray Devices were first put into use at the end of 2021 with the opening ceremony made by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Gaziantep.
ASELSAN continues its breakthroughs in the civilian field in line with Turkey's vision of technological independence. X-Ray Baggage Scanners used for security purposes are of critical importance in ensuring the security of various facilities such as airports, ports, border gates, customs and government buildings. X-Ray devices developed domestically by ASELSAN were delivered to Tokat Airport to be used under the responsibility of the State Airports Administration (DHMI).
ASELSAN Chairman of the Board of Directors, President and CEO Prof. Dr. Haluk Görgün made evaluations on domestic devices started to be used at airports and said, “ARIN X-Ray Baggage Scanners, domestically developed by ASELSAN engineers, will be used in many parts of our country. Where there is high technology, ASELSAN's mark will continue to be there. ASELSAN name will continue to be talked about together with the word of trust.”
A Contract for the Supply and Installation of 30 Dual View X-Ray Baggage Scanners was signed between ASELSAN and DHMI on December 14, 2020. 18 of ASELSAN ARIN X-Ray Baggage Scanners, developed jointly by ASELSAN and HTR, were delivered to the Gaziantep Airport new terminal building, which was opened by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on December 25, 2021.
