STM, NATO partner on maritime security

Turkish defense company STM has entered into a collaboration with the signing of a Goodwill Protocol with the NATO Maritime Security Centre of Excellence (MARSEC COE). 


As informed, the protocol was signed at the ceremony on 29 June at the STM Headquarters.

In accordance with the signed protocol, STM and NATO MARSEC COE pledge to work together on various projects in the field of maritime security.

In this framework, the involvement of STM ThinkTech, which is Türkiye’s first technology-based think tank, is planned. STM ThinkTech will provide innovative solutions to NATO MARSEC COE via modelling, simulation, and decision support systems.

“Since 2019, STM ThinkTech, as NATO’s solution partner, has been providing state of the art strategic level decision support systems for NATO’s resilience domain. We are excited to be entering into this new cooperation with the NATO Maritime Security Centre of Excellence, as well,” STM General Manager Özgür Güleryüz, stated.

STM ThinkTech has provided a wide range of consultancy services to public and private organistions and has previously exported decision support systems to NATO. 

The company also carries out projects for NATO in the field of command and control, and has successfully completed the NATO Integration Core (INT-CORE) Project, ensuring the provision of significant support to situational awareness across the battlefield.

INT-CORE provides accurate information to decision-makers at the right time, and incorporates command and control work processes that can support the distribution of information on command and control, joint picture, battlefield, missions, etc.

Last month, STM announced it started the production of the Turkish Navy’s small attack STM500 submarines.
