Date: Issue 105 - April 2021

The Underwater Telephone, a communication system that enables communication between submarines and vessels through underwater acoustic waves and indigenously developed by Koç Bilgi ve Savunma, receives orders from abroad.

In the written statement made by the company, it was shared that following the contract award for its use on a foreign naval ship in 2020, at the beginning of 2021, another sales contract was signed for the Underwater Telephone with an English-language menu to be used on a ship in the inventory of another country.

Koç Savunma Engineering Manager Hakan ÖKTEM recently shared a general evaluation of the year 2020 and discussed his views on the sales activity and stated that KoçSavunma accomplished all the deliveries of the year 2020 within the framework of its commitments and on time. ÖKTEM: “As Koç Savunma, we focused on R&D and innovation activities as a domestic and national defense company amid the pandemic, despite the challenging conditions caused by the pandemic all over the world and in our country. In this context, we received considerable orders at home and abroad and have signed foreign representation agreements with many companies. Thus, we are proud to close the year 2020 as a solution partner preferred by defense companies both at home and abroad. We fully believe that this fruitful period will keep on in the upcoming period.”

Stating that their strategic road map will take them into new sectors and growing in foreign markets, ÖKTEM said, “Koç Savunma evaluated 2020 as a fruitful year in terms of both domestic activities and export opportunities. During this period, we successfully launched activities to promote our products and generate solutions with various ministries and institutions.”
