Currently, our friends continue their activities. We just conducted a test of a stabilized tower system."

In this sense, we will have new heralds for our city and country in the coming period. We have already announced that TUBITAK will come to this region. Together with him, we will expand the ecosystem here and bring an industrial zone to our country where high technology is developed, produced and exported to the whole world together with both ASELSAN Konya and our other companies.”
