Our ARIN X-Ray Baggage Control Devices, which were developed with national resources, were delivered to Tokat Airport to be used under the responsibility of the General Directorate of State Airports Administration, after Gaziantep. We continue to develop and develop with our projects that are growing day by day, and we will continue to do so.”
