(UEKAE) National Electronics and Cryptology Research Institute

The National Electronics and Cryptology Research Institute is an R&D institution that contributes significantly to Turkey's information security experience while developing information security and electronic system projects needed by strategic public institutions in our country.

In order to reduce the external dependency on technology in the field of information security, UEKAE performs all critical components of the devices, including the integrated circuit design. The largest library of our country on cryptology and information security is also located in UEKAE.


(BTE) Institute of Information Technologies

The institute, which came under the umbrella of TÜBİTAK BİLGEM in 2010, still conducts applied research and produces projects in the field of information and communication within BİLGEM. BTE since its establishment; has undertaken many projects in coordination with the public, private sector, universities and research institutes, and has gained significant knowledge in its own fields of work.


(ILTAREN) Advanced Technologies Research Institute

Advanced Technologies Research Institute (ILTAREN) is an institute that conducts research in the field of Electronic Warfare (EW) in the Ankara campus of the Joint Electronic Warfare Support Command (MEHDESKOM) Barracks.

ILTAREN develops systems and infrastructures including modeling and simulation software for decision support purposes in order to examine the performance of different systems operating in radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR) and optical bands under various environmental conditions. In addition to software development studies, laboratory structures are also being developed, which include system prototypes in the Electronic Warfare field and simulators containing hardware elements related to these systems.

(YTE) Institute of Software Technologies

The Software Technologies Institute, which directs the digital policies of public institutions and organizations, develops R&D-oriented software solutions that take into account current technologies and innovative approaches in order to meet the digital transformation needs.

YTE, which defines national, institutional and thematic transformation needs with a microservice architecture perspective and models the level of digital maturity with the philosophy of continuous improvement, is the only public institution in Turkey with CMMI Level 5 certification.


(SGE) Cyber Security Institute

The Cyber Security Institute, which was established to carry out studies to increase the national cyber security capacity, carries out research and development activities in the field of cyber security; carries out solutions-oriented projects for military institutions, public institutions and organizations and the private sector.

The main fields of activity of our institute, which has made a significant contribution to the creation of cyber security knowledge and tactical infrastructure in our country with many successful projects to date, are secure software development, penetration tests and vulnerability analysis.

(IZE) Artificial Intelligence Institute

Artificial Intelligence Institute is the first institute established within the scope of TUBITAK centers and institutes, which cuts the sectors and research fields horizontally and focuses directly on the emerging technology field. For this reason, it constitutes an innovative model in terms of both the open innovation and co-development approach of the institute and its focus on emerging technology.

Artificial Intelligence Institute aims to develop core technologies in the field of artificial intelligence and bring these innovations from the forefront of science to the use of the industry as soon as possible. Focusing on the transformative potential of artificial intelligence, it will continue to play its part in pioneering efforts to create and sustain artificial intelligence-based innovation, growth and productivity in Turkey. Working with industry and public institutions in Turkey, together with other organizations within the artificial intelligence ecosystem, spreading the use of artificial intelligence and increasing the workforce specialized in this field are among its primary goals.

Competence Centers

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.


  • End-to-end secure voice communication in PSTN networks
  • End-to-end secure voice, image and data transmission in IP networks
  • NATO SCIP compliance on IP networks
  • Compatibility with commercial SIP products
  • Interoperability with MILSEC1A and MILSEC2 secure phones
  • National and AES crypto algorithms
  • Remote software update
  • Easy operation with touch screen
