We think that the use of appropriate solutions, taking into account the unique dynamics of the defense industry, will have an accelerating effect on the digital transformation of companies.

We believe that this experience will give a great impetus to companies operating in the defense industry or planning to invest in this sector. We have been transferring our knowledge in the field of defense industry to companies in our country for years and we will continue to do so. There are very successful examples of this knowledge sharing. Today, we work with more than 40 defense industry companies. Among them, we can count companies such as FNSS, Havelsan Teknoloji Radar, Küçükpazarlı, SDT, CES, TR Mekatronik, Dearsan, Sefine, ADİK.
