Lockheed Martin partners with Turkish Industry for training opportunities and PAC-3 missile canister production
Monday, Jun 11, 2012

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] signed agreements today with two Turkish companies to collaborate on training solutions for coalition military personnel and the production of PAC-3 Missile single canisters. The partnerships were confirmed at the 31st Annual Conference on U.S.-Turkish Relations in Washington, D.C.

In the first agreement, Lockheed Martin expands its collaboration with Havelsan, Inc., to identify and pursue opportunities to provide training solutions in the United States, Turkey and around the world. The agreement includes training technologies for electronic warfare, flight, land vehicle and artillery service members. The agreement also includes wildland fire suppression simulators for military or civil firefighters.

Havelsan has developed a number of cost-effective technologies that complement Lockheed Martins student-centric training methodologies, said Jim Weitzel, vice president of training solutions for Lockheed Martins Global Training and Logistics business. The collaboration will offer customers more value for preparing professionals under the most realistic conditions.

Havelsan sees tremendous potential to provide technologies developed by Turkish industry to customers all over the world in collaboration with Lockheed Martin, said Alparslan Kuloglu, director of marketing and business development for Havelsan. The ingenuity of Turkeys technologists and Lockheed Martins experience developing training systems make an attractive combination.

Lockheed Martin and Havelsan are currently working together to provide the Turkish Air Force with high-fidelity F-16 full mission simulators as well as weapons and tactics trainers.

The second agreement, with Turkish missile manufacturer Roketsan, will enable the company to become a supplier of PAC-3 Missile single canisters. With technical assistance from Lockheed Martin, Rokestan will provide production line development, special tooling design and fabrication, production planning, first article inspection, qualification hardware and delivery of new one-pack missile canisters for sale to the Government of Turkey.

The United States and other international PAC-3 system customers have expressed interest in the new single canister launch system, to replace existing four-pack canisters, enabling more flexibility of the PAC-3 system in the field.

Roketsan will provide a proven legacy of air and missile defense solutions to the PAC-3 system, said Orville Prins, vice president of international air and missile defense business development for Lockheed Martins Missiles and Fire Control business. This agreement will provide long-term capacity and growth for Turkish industry and will make Roketsan a Lockheed Martin certified supplier of single canisters, supporting PAC-3 sales to Turkey, and other potential customers to include the United States Army.

Being a system house for missile and rocket systems design and manufacture for more than 20 years, Roketsan has evolved from a national supplier to an international market player, said Selçuk Yaar, president of Roketsan. By using its expertise and knowledge gained from many national and international programs in designing and producing high technology rocket and missile systems, Roketsan will be a strong supplier to Lockheed Martin. With this strategic partnership Roketsan will also help Lockheed Martin to maximize the logistic advantage of being close to the area where there is potential increase in the demand for air defense systems.

Lockheed Martin has been an industrial partner of Turkey since 1984 and is committed to continued partnerships with Turkish industry to offer affordable defense systems.

This must be the sign that we will choose Patriot PAC 3 for our Air Defense Project!

Roketsan makes Canisters for NSM naval Missile.. So, according to your logic Turkey will be purchasing NSM missiles ? [linked image]

Greek company INTRACOM is a sub-contractor of RAYTHEON, and the exclusive supplier of many electronic components of the PAC-3. So the Turks should not be alarmed if they see a few "MADE IN GREECE" labels on their Patriot systems!

It does make sense when we think that we would like build almost everything local.

Whats so wrong on that idea that we will properply choose PAC3, when even the tubes will be build in Türkiye.
Maybe they will build more companies to build more components from PAC3 in Türkiye and this way they share the cake wiht us, so most of the money stay in Türkiye!

This sound logic or not?

Ofcourse it is, but your presumption that PAC-3 will be chosen should not be based on the fact that a few systems are being manufactured in Turkey under License. Those Americans and Brits have clocked on to SSM procurement strategies and playing smart, I would hope SSM chooses what's best for Turkish defense and industry.

Less then a month left for a system to be chosen, let us hope it will be for the good of the country.
