- SADAT's LinkedIn profile states that you aim to establish military and defense cooperation among Islamic countries, ensuring self-sufficiency. Why did you decide on this mission?
SADAT International Defense Consultancy Construction Industry and Trade Incorporated Company was established by retired military personnel from the Turkish Armed Forces. These military experts while being aware of the fact that approximately 60 UN member countries are far below international standards in defense and defense industry, assessed that providing consultancy, training and supply services in the field of defense and security to these countries would be the most influential way to evaluate their professional experience, knowledge and expertise.
Incorporation procedures, which normally take a few days when they make their official application to establish the company at the end of 2011, it took a few months to examine the legal regulations, whether it is possible to establish the company and to carry out the necessary research to keep the business within legal boundaries, and after some corrections were made in the charter of company, its establishment was approved in February 2012.
As stated in our charter of incorporation and openly announced on our website, it provides strategic consultancy, reorganization, modernization, special training and supply services to the Armed Forces and Police Forces of other countries which are recognized by UN in the field of defense and security.
Contrary to all the media reports, our company carries out know-how transfer-type technical works. In its nearly 10-year history, our company has carried out important projects.
For example, we have great experience in establishing a turn-key Military Standardization and Metrology Center and also, dozens of countries need it. Even if we work on this subject for years, we cannot spare time to do another work.
As you know, the Special Forces of the Turkish Armed Forces ranks first in the world. Transferring this knowledge and experience to countries in need is also an important branch of activity in our product range.
