Mine and Handmade Explosive Countermeasures Test and Research Center (MEKTAM)


MEKTAM Project aims to establish a national and international center for researching methods of combating mines and improvised explosive devices, which pose a threat to our country, and for conducting operational and performance tests. Various activities are carried out within the scope of the project. First, infrastructure works are carried out for the establishment of open field test areas, closed field test areas and R&D laboratories. Then, the performance and operational tests of existing technologies are measured by scientific methods. In addition, national test standards are being developed in order to establish a common language with the requirements authorities. Finally, cooperation studies are carried out to bring stakeholders together to create operational solution scenarios. With this project, it is aimed to strengthen national capacity and develop effective solutions in the fight against Mines and Improvised Explosive Devices.

MILSEC 4 - Secure IP Terminal


While the MİLSEC-4 terminal offers an up-to-date solution for next-generation secure communication (voice, data and video) in IP networks, it provides an uninterrupted communication service by maintaining the compatibility of secure voice communication in PSTN networks with PSTN secure phones in use.

Configuration, surveillance and software update processes of MILSEC-4 terminals are carried out securely remotely using the Security Management Center (GYM). MİLSEC-4 terminal is capable of IP Network Key Loading (IPAAY) through secure communication with GYM without the need for an additional device.

MİLSEC-4 terminals are interoperable with MİLSEC-1A and MİLSEC-2 phones and offer the opportunity to replace MİLSEC-1A and MİLSEC-2 phones without interruption in the gradual transformation of PSTN networks to next generation IP networks.
