Imagery intelligence technology foresight and modeling of mobile applications in the defense industry

Bilge, Başak
Identifying the threats and impacts of an operation field requires continuous planning and emphasizes the importance of intelligence. With the development of electronic systems that support the military decision-making process increases in number, today long- time and high- risk discovery and surveillance operations are performed faster and safer. Therefore, developing technology policies to augment defense- technology research is a crucial step. Reorganization movements, management measures and operational procedures should be in harmony with government objectives. Supporting R&D activities and developing an independent national information infrastructure are required in order to be able to generate strategic plans to support domestic and national production. In this study, imaging intelligence technology foresight of mobile applications in the defense industry has been examined with Delphi Technique. It was aimed to have a consensus of different opinions by directing sequential questionnaire to the experts. As the result of the analysis, short, medium and long-term strategic decisions and strategic target proposals that take the defense industry needs into account are listed. As an example, a roadmap and policy recommendations have been prepared for the selected strategic target. The impact analysis model proposal is mentioned in order to see how much of the roadmap has been realized. Panoramic mobile application, which is developed as a model, provides an alternative to reconnaissance and surveillance systems as it provides wide-angle field imaging. It is believed that this study will greatly contribute to information intelligence constituent of information warfare technologies that find a place in the technology tree of Vision 2023.


Mediated Effects of Technology Competencies and Experiences on Relations among Attitudes Towards Technology Use, Technology Ownership, and Self Efficacy about Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Yerdelen-Damar, Sevda; Boz, Yezdan; Aydin-Gunbatar, Sevgi (2017-08-01)
This study examined the relations of preservice science teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences to their self-efficacy beliefs about technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). The present study also investigated interrelations among preservice teachers' attitudes towards technology use, technology ownership, technology competencies, and experiences. The participants of study were 665 elementary preservice science teachers (467 fema...
Military innovation critical and dual use technologies
Yazan, Abdurrahman Mete; Durgut, Metin; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2004)
This thesis represents an attempt to explore critical issues in the national military literature and bring up findings for further studies by exploring military innovation,smart management of defense R&D, critical and dual-use technologies concepts in detail. The study has two main components. The first part provides a conceptual and theoretical framework to discuss and understand military innovation, critical technology and dual-use technology. A military that fails to innovate when their contemporaries ar...

Burhan, Mukaddes; Çakır, Serhat; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2018)
This thesis was conducted in the scope of impact analysis of technology foresight intervention which was conducted to influence policies and decisions to benefit from sience and technology to create a knowledge society and innovative economy. The first objective is to assess the long-term ex-post impact of Vision 2023 technology foresight in defense sector. The second objective is the development of a model to assess the impact. An impact assessment scale was developed by implementing program-based theory a...
A New technology foresight model and its application in Turkish defense industry for aerospace communication technologies of 2040
Yüksel, Nurdan; Çakır, Serhat; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2018)
A new technology foresight model -Foresight Periscope Model (FPM)- and Foresight Functional Framework (FFF) with its catchy acronym FORESIGHT of which each letter corresponds to the functions of foresight developed by the researcher are used as a base with the integration of Foresight Method Selection Algorithm (FMSA) developed within this dissertation. The application of integrated model is implemented for aerospace communication technologies’ foresight in Turkish Defense Industry for 2040. Three segments ...
Design optimization of rocket nozzles in chemically reacting flows
Yumusak, M.; Eyi, Sinan (2012-07-30)
The objective of this study is to develop a reliable and efficient design tool that can be used in chemically reacting flows. The flow analysis is based on the axisymmetric Euler and the finite rate chemical reaction equations. The finite rate chemistry model includes eight species and eleven reaction equations. These coupled equations are solved by using Newton's method. Both the numerical and the analytical methods are used to calculate the Jacobian matrices. Sensitivities are evaluated by using the adjoi...
