Acceptance tests have been completed under the Naval Warfare Effectiveness Analysis Model (GEMED) Project, which will strengthen the capabilities of the Turkish Naval Forces in the analysis and procurement phases of system and tactical development projects.
Developing advanced technologies in the Turkish defence industry, STM Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik ve Ticaret A.Ş. continues to equip the Turkish Army with indigenous and innovative software systems. STM has successfully completed the acceptance tests of the Naval Warfare Effectiveness Analysis Model (GEMED).
Operations will first be experimented in virtual environment before actual field application
Commenting on the project, Özgür Güleryüz, General Manager of STM, reminded that STM has significant experience in the creation of simulation and decision support solutions.
“We are strengthening our Navy by producing modern, national platforms. In addition to that, we are developing software systems that will add intelligence to these platforms and supply decision support to their headquarters. As a simulation-based decision support solution, GEMED will allow our Naval Forces to evaluate the combat effectiveness of existing -or designed- military platforms and their applied -or proposed- tactics by providing scientific decision support . We have developed models of nearly 100 combat elements and their subsystems. These platform, sensor, weapon, and countermeasure models will allow effectiveness analyses for surface, underwater and air operations. Battle scenarios might be tested many times in a virtual environment before being actually applied in the field. GEMED will increase our Naval Forces’ combat readiness level”, Güleryüz said.
More than 40 different operations have been tested in GEMED Model
Developed by Turkish engineers, GEMED provides decision support for ship design/modernization, procurement and tactical development. More than 40 operations, in naval, air and underwater domain, have been ran and tested so far. The analysts can assign different tasks to relevant platform models and even create conditional plans. Through multiple runs, experimental design and multi-criteria decision-making techniques; different platform-system configurations and tactics might be inspected in varying environmental conditions.
