KoçDefunma completed the delivery of the project, which includes the systems of 6 new Reis class submarines, by completing the production and factory acceptance tests.
Koç Information and Defense Technologies (KoçDefunma) AŞ, which has signed innovative technologies that strengthen the country's defense, has delivered the systems it has developed for Turkey's new generation submarines. Within the scope of the New Type Submarine Program (YTDP), carried out for the purpose of constructing 6 Reis class submarines at Gölcük Shipyard Command, KoçDefence delivered all the systems it developed with its own engineering and technology experience, by completing the production and factory acceptance tests.
KoçDefence, which first signed a contract with ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) in August 2011 for the Torpedo Countermeasure System (TCMS) of submarines, has its engineering signature on 6 different projects that enable the new type 6 submarines to be equipped with advanced technologies.
“We completed and delivered the projects ahead of time with a localization rate of over 75 percent”
KoçDefence Managing Director Hakan Öktem, who gave his opinion on the subject, said, “While our 6 new submarines, which are candidates to be the star of the Turkish Naval Forces in national and international waters, have gained world-class defense technologies, as KoçDefence, our unrivaled engineering and innovative R&D solutions will contribute to the defense of the country and the domestic defense industry. We are proud of continuing to contribute to its development. While successfully performing the user and maintenance trainings, which we are responsible for, within the scope of all these projects, we fulfill all our obligations, including spare part deliveries. zamWe fulfilled it before the moment and completed all the project processes with a locality rate of over 75 percent.” said.
Stakeholder and added value richness that comes with domestic submarines
The New Type Submarine Program has also become the address of an important transformation in the defense industry with the aim of using the products of many domestic companies on a submarine platform for the first time. With this project, new field expertise and technological infrastructures that emerged thanks to the support of universities and talented subcontractors form the strong foundation of the Turkish defense industry.
With its success in developing the largest number of systems in Reis class submarines and its engineering know-how, KoçDefence has made its preparations for more important roles in the MİLDEN (National Submarine) project. In addition to its competencies, KoçDefence will be used in sea acceptance tests within the scope of YTDP. Modernization of the Sonar Fish system He is now waiting for the contract signing process. KoçSavunma's competencies, which it has realized with its engineering and technology knowledge and strengthened with the YTDP (New Type Submarine Project), continue to lay important milestones in the Turkish defense industry today.
