Defence Turkey: Mr. Baki Sensoy, first of all, thank you for taking the time for our interview.  Altay Group has operated in an institutional capacity with activities serving the Turkish Defence Industry spanning over 60 years. Can you inform us about the transition from the early days of establishment to the technological transformation process that started with Altay Software?  

Baki ŞENSOY: Our company was established in 1957. Looking back over the years that have passed we have had many experiences. We’ve learned to face challenges with confidence, diligence and fervency. With every opportunity we created solutions which served our customers by improving their capacity to be successful. 62 years, that’s easier said than done. We have gone through some difficult times. As Altay, we performed our duties properly during the crisis in Cyprus caused by the escalating problems in1974. Here, I would like to emphasize that we are proud of both witnessing and taking on responsibility for the positive development of our Defence Industry. Built on a strong foundation, the institutional structure of Altay traces back to the days of its establishment. The “Continuous Improvement Guidelines” of that time, became the Facility Security, MSB Production, CMMI, DO-178 or ISO certificates of today.
