The Ukrainian state-owned company SpetsTechnoExport and Turkish company Aselsan signed an agreement to produce Turkish radio sets in Ukraine, stated the press-service of SpetsTechnoExport’s parent company, Ukroboronprom. Both parties did the signing at “Arms and Security,” the international arms exhibition at Kyiv.
Ukraine’s armed forces plan to replace all of their existing radio sets with Aselsan units by 2020. Some military units and divisions will continue using American Harris radio sets. Combat divisions and logistic support will continue to rely on Motorola.
As of 2015, the Ukrainian army needed 32 billion hryvnia to modernize its communications.
