Turkey-based defence technology company STM Savunma Teknolojileri ve Mühendislik has signed a goodwill protocol with Nato Maritime Security Centre of Excellence (MARSEC COE).

The protocol was signed between MARSEC COE director Navy captain Sümer Kayser and STM general manager Özgür Güleryüz at the company’s headquarters on 29 June.

Under this protocol, Nato’s MARSEC COE and STM will work together on a wide range of projects in the maritime security domain.

Additionally, the framework will include participation of technology-based think tank, STM ThinkTech.

It will provide innovative solutions to Nato MARSEC COE using various simulation, modelling and decision support systems.

Özgür Güleryüz said: “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 MARSEC COE, as well.

“We will continue to provide our genuine engineering solutions to distinguished institutions such as Nato.”

Apart from the latest signing, STM ThinkTech has previously exported a decision support system to Nato.

STM ThinkTech’s Aggregated Resilience Decision Support Model supports the decision-making processes of Nato including cyber-attacks, large-scale power outages, pandemics and big human movements.

Furthermore, STM has completed the Nato Integration Core (INT-CORE) project, to support the situational awareness across the battlefield.

The INT-CORE primarily delivers precise information to the decision makers at the right time.
