ASELSAN produces ATOM 35 mm Airburst Ammunition within the scope of the 35 mm Air Defense System Modernization and Airburst Ammunition Supply Contract under the leadership of the Presidency of Defence Industries.

Airburst Ammunition for difficult targets
ASELSAN’s 35 mm Airburst Ammunition is a new generation ammo to increase the efficiency of the gun systems against air to surface missiles, UAVs, etc. When blasts, the programmable ammunition creates a cloud of shrapnel which have high kinetic energy and penetration capability on the path of the target which are very difficult to kill with classic ammunition. ATOM 35mm Airburst Ammunition provides high hit probability against various types of air and land targets.
New capabilities with the project
It was also announced that it is possible to develop a wide variety of calibers and types of smart ammunition in a short time with the experience and knowledge gained within the scope of the project.
