Issue 12 - October 2008

Our expectation is to be partner with SAP during system and solution development cycles as well. We can extend our technology cooperation to command and control systems, C4ISR for the requirements of German military forces. We have deployed a state of the art technology Turkish Integrated Command and Control Information System (TICCS) to Turkish Air Force .

We have cooperation agreements to work as HDW (Howaldswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH) subcontractor for Turkish New Type Submarine program. On July 22, 2008 HDW was selected by Turkish Defense Committee to start contract negotiations for New Type Submarine production program. This will be another business opportunity for HAVELSAN and HDW to work together in high tech design-development program.

Another technology area is simulation technologies. HAVELSAN is one of 10 big companies in the simulation and training technologies in the world. We are the main simulator supplier of the training systems for air, land based and navy platforms.. We have business relations with BOEING, Lockheed Martin, RAYTHEON, THALES, Air Force of Republic of Korea and Pakistan Land Forces and cooperation agreements with global companies. With German companies we can extend the existing cooperation to broader perspective with German ICT and R&D giants.
