STM, one of the leading companies of the Turkish defense industry, will develop software for NATO's intelligence infrastructure. Intelligence sharing between all NATO headquarters around the world will be done through this software. The project was also recorded as one of the biggest export projects that Turkey received from NATO in the field of software.
STM Defense Technologies Engineering and Trade Inc. has achieved one of the most important export successes of the Turkish defense industry in the field of software.
NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency), responsible for the provision, installation and maintenance of communication and information systems for decision makers and command in NATO; STM won two important tenders for the direction, collection, processing and distribution of intelligence within the scope of NATO. As a result of the price and technical qualification evaluation, NCI Agency preferred STM in both projects opened among NATO member countries and in which the world's leading software companies participated. After the technical and administrative negotiations, a contract was signed between STM and NCI Agency. The kickoff meeting of the INTEL-FS Project was successfully held at the NCIA Center in Den Haag, Netherlands.
STM will ensure intelligence flow between NATO Headquarters
The project is called Intelligence Functional Services (INTEL-FS 2) – Spiral 2 and BMD functions in INTEL-FS Backend Services (I2BE) and User Applications (I2UA). With the software to be developed within the scope of the project, STM will provide the direction, collection, processing and distribution of intelligence for NATO commands. All NATO headquarters and bases in the world will conduct their intelligence flows through this software that STM will develop and modernize. The INTEL-FS Projects, which will modernize NATO's intelligence infrastructure, are planned to take approximately 3.5 years. INTEL-FS projects stand out as one of the largest-scale contracts signed by a Turkish company with NCI Agency.
STM Will Break New Years at INTEL-FS
The INTEL-FS development process will be a project that includes firsts with the technology to be applied and the solutions it will offer. INTEL-FS is among the first projects to be written with agile software management for NATO. The project will be developed and run on NATO's own platform. The project, which also includes the integration of data; It will be microservice-based, distributed and extensible.
Smiley: The project will be the work of Turkish engineers
STM General Manager Özgür Güleryüz made a statement on the subject and said that they achieved a very important export success for Turkey in the field of software. Expressing that they have carried out different projects for NATO, one of the most important international organizations in the world, Güleryüz continued as follows:
“As STM, we successfully completed the NATO Integrated Elasticity Decision Support Model and NATO Integration Core Project. Now, with our competence in software development, we will enable the technological transformation of NATO's intelligence infrastructure. With the INTEL-FS project, which we will sign as a management information system, NATO commands will access all kinds of intelligence data with modern interfaces that give importance to user experience. The entire project will be carried out by Turkish engineers. We started working on the project with our expert staff of approximately 100 people.
In one leg of the project, we will develop 'back-end' services that provide the ability to direct, collect, process, distribute and use intelligence information and are described as back-end, and on the other leg, we will develop modern user interfaces with state-of-the-art technology. At the same time, INTEL-FS will be a serious integration project that brings software together. The extensibility of the software is also an important factor. With the software we have started to develop, we will add a reliable and business continuity-focused system to NATO's intelligence infrastructure.”
“One of the biggest export projects from NATO in software development”
Güleryüz stated that an important experience gain will be developed with this project, and said, “An operational capability will be created in terms of data analysis. With the experience and new knowledge we will gain in the project, we will always be ready for the similar needs of our domestic intelligence and security units.” Also mentioning the importance of INTEL-FS Projects in exports, Güleryüz said, “It is a source of pride for us that INTEL-FS is one of the biggest export projects that Turkey has received from NATO in the field of software development. Our engineering experience in defense and informatics will continue to contribute to Turkey's export targets with high value-added products and solutions.
