Who We Are
Advanced Technologies Research Institute;
İLTAREN carries out the tasks of conducting scientific research in the relevant fields of following activities: establishment of infrastructures for testing, measurement, analysis and evaluation activities and carrying out these activities, conducting research on all kinds of software, hardware and equipment in the field of Electronic Warfare, developing technologies and prototypes, establishing methods and processes for the development and evaluation of EW techniques and tactics.
Systems and infrastructures including modeling and simulation software for decision support purposes are developed within İLTAREN in order to examine the performance of different systems operating in radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR) and optical bands in various environmental conditions.
In addition to software development studies, laboratory structures including system prototypes in the Electronic Warfare field and simulators containing hardware elements related to these systems are also developed within the Institute.
In order to carry out all these activities systematically with sensitive and detailed models supported by scientific data, measurement; test and evaluation systems that work in open field and laboratory environments are also developed.
