Competence Centers

Competence CentersGeneral View

Competence Centers are structures where different research departments gather around a thematic area and coordinate their work.

  • Competence Centers enable the creation of research teams by bringing together researchers working in different research departments.
  • It performs the necessary coordination for the research departments to coordinate the subjects they work with.
  • It is aimed to work together to determine the focus areas of the stakeholders and to use these Centers for pre-competitive cooperation.
  • Rather than communicating directly with the research departments, it is aimed that external stakeholders will communicate and cooperate with the field-oriented Competence Centers, creating an advantage in terms of collaborations to be established.

Competence CentersBusiness Analysis Unit

The Business Analysis Unit of the TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Artificial Intelligence Institute, consisting of business and data analysts who are experts in their fields, will be actively involved in the projects to identify and perform the business analysis activities needed in the projects to be supported within the scope of the call.

The Business Analysis Unit will produce outputs that will be inputs to the requirements analysis and design processes of the projects and will disseminate the estimation metrics, achievements and lessons learned from similar works among the projects.

Competence CentersTransfer Laboratory

TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Artificial Intelligence Institute will provide the projects to be supported within the scope of the call, with the development stages such as blueprint, test, proof of concept, prototype, demo, and a transfer laboratory where these studies can be demonstrated and tested before transferring the developed technologies to the production environment.

Transfer Laboratories;

It will serve as a platform for the integration of products and solutions with different capabilities developed by the stakeholders,

It has a unique infrastructure developed by TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Institutes and based on open source technologies,

It will serve as a bridge for the solutions developed within the scope of the projects to be generalized and used in different projects or in the solutions of different problems. 

In this context it is aimed to develop auxiliary tools such as:

  • Generalized Solutions Catalogue, 
  • Fully Anonymized Usage Scenarios Database,
  • Lessons Learned and Communication Platform,
  • Reusable Software Libraries,
  • Method and Tool Suggestion System.

(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.

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
