The “Smartium Blue Smart Float Measurement System” project, realised by KoçSavunma in cooperation with the DenizTemiz Association (TURMEPA), Fethiye Municipality, the İMEAK Chamber of Shipping and Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University, is coming to life. This project will monitor seawater quality in Fethiye Bay, with the collected data being available for instant evaluation.
A test run of the system was performed in Fethiye Harbour. Upon the completion of the project, it will be possible to measure physical and chemical parameters of the seawater, such as acidification, turbidity, oxygen level, water temperature, salinity, and chlorophyllous status, as well as meteorological data such as wind direction and speed, all of which will be recorded in real-time in marine areas such as marinas, bays and the areas surrounding fish farms. The collected data will also guide different analytic applications.
A cooperation protocol between KoçSavunma and TÜBİTAK BİLGEM has been signed by Prof. Dr. Ahmet Arif Ergin, the President of TÜBİTAK; Prof. Dr. Hacı Ali Mantar, the President of TÜBİTAK BİLGEM; and Dr. Hakan Başaran, KoçSavunma Director.
The acceptance tests of the Effector Simulator Type-A, produced by KoçSavunma for Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems, were completed successfully between 29 September and 1 October.
The Effector Simulator Type-A was designed for use in interface testing of a Torpedo Countermeasure System. The system will be used for the interface verification in FAT and HAT testing of the Turkish Navy New Type Submarine Project.
29th UDT Conference held in Bremen. Presenting papers at the conference were two members of the KoçSavunma family – Bülent Dağ and Güneş Efe – who presented papers entitled “Generic toolbox for underwater acoustic modelling (GT-Aqua)” and “High precision underwater localisation (HPUL) using synchronous and asynchronous methods” during the conference.
KoçSavunma won second prize at the Most Successful Koç Employees 2019 Awards for its “Measurement and Positioning System Project”.
Steps continue to come from KoçSavunma towards the export of the Underwater Telephone, which is also used by the Turkish Naval Forces. Having signed a contract for the use of Underwater Telephone on a foreign naval vessel in 2020, KoçSavunma entered 2021 with another contract for the export of a different version of the same product. The exported Underwater Phone model features an English menu/interface. Details of the development were shared in a press release issued by KoçSavunma on 22 February.
