In this study, acquisition and integration activities of ground support hardware items in terms of system engineering processes and optimizations at HAVELSAN A.Ş Peace Eagle project is explained. The Peace Eagle (PE) Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) System is an airborne surveillance system being developed for the Republic of Turkey. The AEW&C System provides surveillance, air defense, fleet support and force coordination in defense of sovereignty and national interests as an integral element of the Turkish Air Force (TurAF) as customer. The PE AEW&C System comprises an Airborne Segment (ABS) 737 series flight platform and a Ground Support Segment (GSS). These segments are formed of subsystems with hardware and software configuration items to perform the PE AEW&C System functions. In this project HAVELSAN participates in acquisition of PE AEW&C as the sole in-country subcontractor of BOEING for the Mission Computing Segment (MCS) and Ground Support Segment (GSS) and all the engineering processes throughout the program, starting from the system analysis till the end of system test and evaluation. HAVELSAN also contributes to GSS software Turkish unique design, development, integration and testing, and Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) for the GSS throughout the service life of the system.
