Harp Defence Systems, as a result of indigenization and development efforts, brought Turkey the Vikilit® product family and continues adding new members to it.
According to the information obtained by MSI TDR, the company completed the tests on a new product group in April to be added to the product family. This product group, which was indigenized for the first time in Turkey and differs in dimensions to the other products in the Vikilit® product family, will be soon in the market with the model number VP762.
Harp Defence Systems has rolled up their sleeves to design an alternative product in late 2019, within the scope of the needs of a local main systems integrator. The new Vikilits designed and produced were subjected to various tests in March and April. The products that passed the thermal resistance measurement tests at the İzmir Institute of Technology, achieved very successful results.
Mehmet Yener, Founder of Harp Defence Systems, summarized the difference of this product group as follows: “VP762, which is a different type from our previous product groups, contains innovations in terms of its production method and the components it contains. In this work, we carried out both a new production approach and new component development studies.”
Pointing out that this product group is the lowest thermal resistant product family they have developed so far, Yener stated that the usage area of the product group will, again, be electronic cards. The low thermal resistance of the card locks enables the heat generated in the electronic cards to be better dissipated during the operation of the system. This will allow the new product group to be used with electronic cards that run warmer more due to components such as processors.
The development work of this product group, of which the first orders up to a certain number will be produced in-house by HARP Defence Systems, continues. The product, which the company has developed with its own means and aims to get it ready for serial production within 3 months, does not have a domestic counterpart. Yener, underlining that they are expecting a significant amount of orders for this product, stated that they will also work to introduce the product to the foreign market.
Yener also added: “As Harp Defence Systems, we are always eager to develop new products as we are a design-based company. In this regard, we are working with all our endeavour to meet the special needs of our customers in a cost and time effective manner.”
