STM, one of the leading companies in the Turkish defense sector, has achieved another significant success within the scope of its collaborations with academia.
As an outcome of the ongoing collaboration with Bahçeşehir University and BAUMIND that dates back to 2012, STM has delivered the “Co-Light Underwater Lighting System”, the production of which was carried out by BAUMIND under STM’s consultancy and field expertise, to the customer.
In this context, three of the "Co-Light Underwater Lighting System", were delivered to the General Directorate of Shipyards. The delivery ceremony was held at Gölcük Naval Shipyard. The systems will be employed by Naval Shipyard Commands and the Maintenance and Repair Facility Commands.
The Co-Light Underwater Lighting System allows detailed investigations of vessels' hulls below the waterline in Naval Shipyards by diver teams, eliminating the need to dry-dock the warships for inspections. Co-Light facilitates surveys of the hulls, underwater weldings, and repairs by divers in the port, allowing more precise and detailed underwater imaging. Co-Light will be used for underwater photography activities as well.
The consultancy and field expertise provided by STM within the framework of the BAU–STM cooperation has already led to the development and licensing of Underwater and Surface Optical Communication systems. Among these products, the Surface Optical Communication System has been exported to a foreign Navy within the framework of a Corvette Project. Patent support has been received for all the mentioned systems through contracts signed with TÜBİTAK.
