Meteksan Defence Communication Systems Builds Sustainable Business Partnerships Through Mutual Trust and Transparency
Defence Turkey: Mr. TORUN, first off, all thanks so much for your time today. Meteksan Defence was established in 2006 to gather defense industry related projects and activities of high technology companies that operate within the structure of Bilkent Holding Group under a single roof. Communication Systems is one of Meteksan Defence’s three main departments; could you please inform us on this department’s staff size, services provided, and its technological experience and vision?
Erdal TORUN: Regarding Meteksan Defence’s technology domain, I would initially like to touch upon the company’s position in defense technologies.
As we all know, the cooperation between university and industry is essential for achieving technology ownership. In my opinion the close cooperation that we have with academic institutions is one of the most critical factors that enables the ownership of technology. Building a triangle between university, industry and the users is among the issues that have been discussed over the years. We believe that we are among the establishments that achieve this well in our sector.
As a technology development center with the vision of developing indigenous solutions, in line with our strategy of building a sustainable structure, we directed our resources towards certain areas and restructured our organization on three main areas in 2019 in a way to render it available for the production of competitive products.
Communication Systems is one of these areas and this department effectively and swiftly executes the design, business development and program activities in an integrated manner with nearly 70 personnel. Without doubt, departments in charge of the execution of production, quality and administrative processes also provide services to our group as well.
Communication systems that enable the interoperation of systems such as network-based operations and the required smart munition, reconnaissance and surveillance systems and electronic warfare, and transfer and sharing of data such as targets, status, position, intelligence, time to strike and damage assessment (C4ISR) between the relevant platforms and the users, have become an essential part of modern operations. To this end, the electronic warfare resistant data links developed by our company particularly for missile systems and unmanned air vehicles add tremendous value to the related platforms. Generally, the following solutions are included in our product range:
Missile Data Links
Tactical Data Links
C-Band Data Link for Manned/Unmanned Platforms
Flight Control Computer for Air Vehicles
TMV Telemetry Transmitter
GNSS Antenna and Receiver Solutions
Broad Band LOS / NLOS Tactical Communication Radios
Vehicle Electronic Control Systems
