Turkish defense firm, STM has agreed to export its unmanned surveillance and reconnaissance system to an African country for the second time, the company’s general manager told Anadolu Agency (AA).
STM has sold its multi-rotor unmanned aerial system (UAS) for tactical surveillance and reconnaissance, named Togan, to Nigeria previously, and now agreed to export to another African country, Özgür Güleryüz, the general manager of the company said in his interview with AA.
The projects carried out in the sector under the leadership of the Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB), have maturated, Güleryüz said, adding: “We have gained confidence in ourselves, from now on, we are all motivated in exports.”
STM has exported its another unmanned aerial system Kargu, to over 10 countries so far, while it is in negotiations with some other countries to sell Togan, he said.
The company, he said, has also achieved significant export successes, particularly in the area of naval platforms.
“We believe that there will be very important developments in this area as well,” he noted.
“There are very large and important projects we are discussing, I think that as our defense industry and platforms prove themselves, the exports of the sector will increase much faster.”
