Turkey’s military electronics company Aselsan has come first at the 2012 Technology Leadership Awards.

The firm was awarded first place under the military and aerospace category with their “compact screening module card,” which is used in thermal cameras.

Turkey thus won its first top award at the ceremony, which is one of the most prestigious contests in its field, Aselsan Deputy Director General Özcan Kahramangil told Anatolia news agency yesterday.

Aselsan came first in the toughest category of the awards, competing against companies from the U.S., Italy, Israel and Japan, Kahramangil said, adding that the award winning card was at the cutting edge of electronic card design technology.

Started in 1988, the Technology Leadership Awards is the longest running competition of its kind in the electronic design automation industry.
