Avionics Technologies Research Laboratory (ATAL)


Within the scope of the Avionic Technologies Research Laboratory (ATAL) Project, an R&D laboratory is being established that will enable the development of advanced avionics technologies and thus significantly increase Turkey's research and development capabilities in the field of avionics technologies.
Within ATAL, the infrastructure required for research and development activities of integrated modular avionics technologies is being established. Thanks to the hardware and software development, simulation and emulation infrastructure within ATAL, products suitable for advanced technology avionics systems required by the military and civil aviation and space industry will be developed, and design consultancy and conformity tests will be carried out before safety and security certification.
The working areas of the projects that Avionic Technologies Research Laboratory will provide infrastructure support are as follows:
• Safety Critical Software Development,
• Embedded Real Time Software Development,
• Card Support Software and Driver Software Development,
• Integrated Modular Avionic Prototype Development,
• Development of Integrated Communication Navigation and Recognition System,
• Flight Control Computer Development,
• Reconfiguration Technology Development in Avionic Systems,
• Laboratory Level Integration.

Institutions targeted to use ATAL infrastructure; organizations operating in the defense and aerospace industry, relevant units of the Turkish Armed Forces and universities. ATAL infrastructure is currently used by many defense and aerospace projects, especially the National Combat Aircraft (MMU) Integrated Processor Unit Development Project. Within the scope of the National Combat Aircraft (MMU) Project, TUSAŞ personnel also benefit from the ATAL infrastructure along with the personnel of our institution. It is aimed that similar collaborations will continue to increase in order to ensure that research and development activities are widespread throughout the country.

MILSEC 4 - Secure IP Terminal


While the MİLSEC-4 terminal offers an up-to-date solution for next-generation secure communication (voice, data and video) in IP networks, it provides an uninterrupted communication service by maintaining the compatibility of secure voice communication in PSTN networks with PSTN secure phones in use.

Configuration, surveillance and software update processes of MILSEC-4 terminals are carried out securely remotely using the Security Management Center (GYM). MİLSEC-4 terminal is capable of IP Network Key Loading (IPAAY) through secure communication with GYM without the need for an additional device.

MİLSEC-4 terminals are interoperable with MİLSEC-1A and MİLSEC-2 phones and offer the opportunity to replace MİLSEC-1A and MİLSEC-2 phones without interruption in the gradual transformation of PSTN networks to next generation IP networks.


  • End-to-end secure voice communication in PSTN networks
  • End-to-end secure voice, image and data transmission in IP networks
  • NATO SCIP compliance on IP networks
  • Compatibility with commercial SIP products
  • Interoperability with MILSEC1A and MILSEC2 secure phones
  • National and AES crypto algorithms
  • Remote software update
  • Easy operation with touch screen
