About Us

The idea of OSSA Defense and Aviation Cluster was shaped right after the competitiveness analysis that was implemented within the Ostim Organized Industrial Zone. The results have pushed these small and medium sized enterprises to act together and form the defense and aviation cluster which is almost inevitable in these sectors. OSSA was established on 1 July 2008 and involves companies in and around the Organized Industrial Zone. The main requirement to be a member of the cluster is to gain revenue from defense and aviation industries by producing goods and services to those industries or being a sub-supplier to key industry companies like Aselsan, TAI, Boeing, Sikorsky, etc.

Our goals as the Ostim Defense and Aviation Cluster is:

- To increase the share of domestic production in meeting the needs of our army,

- To make the defense industry SMEs competitive in national and international markets,

- Becoming preferred sub-suppliers by increasing collaborations and developing capabilities,

- Opening up to international markets with end products,

- To create regional competitive advantage through sectoral specialization,

- To transfer technology to SMEs through universities and academic studies,

- To create competitive advantage against foreign competitors by developing sub-suppliers.

With the cooperation and support of the Undersecteriat of the Defense Ministry, KOSGEB, TTGV, Ankara Chamber of Industry, TÜBİTAK, SASAD, ODEM, OSTİM, Metutech and THK University; OSSA is conducting its activities efficiently with 191 qualified members and 8.682 personnel in order to increase the share of domestic production and support the actions of the Turkish Defence Industry.
