SSB President Demir said, “Roketsan has reached space with solid-fuel rocket engines. As a result, we reach an altitude of more than 150 kilometres.”

President of Defence Industries Professor İsmail Demir said, “Roketsan has reached space with solid-fuel rocket engines. As a result, we reach an altitude of more than 150 kilometres. Thus, we are at an altitude where we can go even further. Today, we now have rockets to reach space.”

Demir participated in the seminar on “Defence and Space Technologies beyond 2023” organized as part of the 3rd International Productivity & Technology Fair. Speaking at the event’s opening ceremony, Demir said, “In general, space studies have scientific, peaceful and civilian purposes. All these studies ultimately contribute to the field of defence, especially observation, communication and other issues. In this respect, Roketsan reached space with solid-fuel rocket engines. It reached an altitude of more than 150 kilometres, an altitude where we can go even further. Today, we now have rockets to reach space.”

Vice President of Defence Industries and Chairman of ULAK Communications Board of Directors Dr Celal Sami Tüfekçi also spoke. Dr Tüfekçi emphasized the importance of technology: “You cannot do everything. First, you must have the technology, and then you can have it manufactured elsewhere. National production provides employment, and national technology is instrumental in increasing national income. We can increase Turkey’s national income, which is currently around 10 thousand dollars, to 20 thousand dollars in the short term with companies that produce value-added technology such as ULAK.”

We have nationalized over 400 products, and its contribution to our country’s economy has exceeded 150 million dollars.”

Turkish Aerospace (TUSAŞ) CEO and General Manager Professor Temel Kotil spoke about the GÖKBEY project: “As if we were a company that has been making helicopters for 100 years, GÖKBEY flew without a problem. Now, we are preparing for delivery to the Gendarmerie General Command. In this context, we will deliver three helicopters in total within one year. “
