STM Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret A.Ş., which takes a leading role in the defense industry with solutions developed in engineering, technology and consultancy under the leadership of the Turkish Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB), will exhibit its distinctive and innovative products at Defense Systems & Equipment International (DSEI).
STM will take part in the fair with mini-UAV systems that have broken a new ground in Turkey, military naval platforms which have reached national and international success, and radar technologies.
New collaborations are the priority
Omer Korkut, STM Chief Technology Officer, underlines that STM is an engineering company producing technology, indicating, “Technologies we develop and produce with local and national capabilities undertake important tasks for the security of Turkey while we continue to strengthen our position in the international defense market with foreign demands for our products and services. We have export and business development activities in more than 20 countries from Far East to South America. On the international stage provided by DSEI 2019, we aim to develop new business partnerships especially for our target markets while taking our existing partnerships to the next level. We are confidently moving towards becoming a global player by continuing our investments with the goal of export-oriented growth.’
Advanced drone family at the DSEI
STM’s drone family consists of ALPAGU™ (Fixed Wing, Portable Smart Munition System), KARGU™ (Rotary Wing, Portable Smart Munition System), and TOGAN™ (Multi Rotor Surveillance UAS) platforms. These platforms consisting of systems with a superior tactical capability can provide critical solutions for asymmetric warfare, counterterrorism and security operations. TOGAN™ and ALPAGU™ are expected to be included in the inventory of security forces in the near future after the KARGU™, which has been already in the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces and operates successfully. Working hard to apply swarm technologies supported by artificial intelligence to the platforms it has developed, STM has provided the KARGU™ platform with the capability of swarm operations. This system – the first swarm attack drone project in Turkey – can perform multi-drone missions with more than 20 platforms without user interaction.
