The partnership, which will see Armelsan become JFD’s in-country partner in Turkey for defence opportunities, is part of JFD’s ongoing ambition to improve safety and preserve the lives of submariners across the globe and improve advancements in defence diving technology.
 
Established in 2011 with offices in Ankara and Istanbul, Armelsan delivers a variety of sonar systems including diver detection sonar, hull mounted anti-submarine warfare sonar and mine hunting sonar, as well as ROV systems for military and civil applications. Through the new partnership with JFD, Armelsan will gain access to JFD’s submarine rescue expertise, which includes submarine rescue vehicles and submarine rescue chambers, as well as training for JFD’s defence diving products range. In turn, Armelsan will support the usage of JFD’s products by the Turkish market and Turkish companies seeking subsea solutions for international projects.
 
Giovanni Corbetta, Managing Director, JFD, said: “We are pleased to have signed this new partnership with Armelsan, which opens up the Turkish defence market to JFD, enabling us to share our innovation and subsea expertise with another important global region. With complementing technologies, business values and a passion for delivering excellence, Armelsan is an ideal partner for JFD. By delivering subsea equipment to the Turkish market via our new partnership we can further deliver against our commitment to provide the best possible equipment and training to submariners and defence divers, maximising their chances of survival in the event of an incident.”
 
Yetkin Karakas, Chairman of the Board, Armelsan, said: “The JFD partnership is an important step for Armelsan, through which we will be able to provide the Turkish market with a world-class submarine rescue system capability, as well as advanced training. We look forward to working with JFD to improve the safety of Turkish submariners, while supporting JFD in extending its reach in Turkey and beyond.”

JFD operates at the forefront of innovation and is a global leader in the provision of submarine rescue and support services, working with most of the advanced navies in the world.
