The Turkish Armed Forces is set to receive more than 30 new ALP-300G long-range early warning radars from Aselsan to cover the country's airspace, CEO of Aselsan Ahmet Akyol confirmed to Janes at the Eurosatory 2024 defence exhibition held from 17 to 21 June in Paris.

In May the first ALP-300G was delivered to the armed forces during an official handover ceremony, although the exact number of radars was not disclosed.

ALP-300G is a new portable early warning active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar that can be deployed within 30 minutes and assembled on tactical wheeled platforms.

The company is relatively vague regarding the radar's capabilities, although, it has previously stated that it has over 4,000 transmit-receive modules. When asked about the radar's capabilities, Akyol commented that it has an instrumented range of more than 600 km.

Along with the ALP-300G, the company recently developed a new airborne radar called the Nose Radar, or Murad, designed for the Turkish Air Force's (TuAF's) Lockheed Martin F-16 Block-30 fighter jet. Akyol emphasised the radar's capabilities, including its 112 km instrumented range.

The Nose Radar is intended to support both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, and offers capabilities such as multitarget detection and tracking, beyond-visual-range missile guidance, high-resolution imaging, and electronic warfare functionalities.
