TAV Technologies Becomes R&D Centre
TAV Technologies, a subsidiary of TAV Airports, qualified to participate in the Ministry of Industry and Technologies’ program to support research, development and design.
TAV Technologies General Manager Kerem Öztürk said, “Since the day we were founded, we have been producing information solutions to generate safe, fast and comfortable travel experiences catering to passenger needs and expectations.
“We value research and development that further advance our in-house information solutions. Within this scope, we have relocated to our new high-technology office, a 1,500m² space with two laboratories, an innovation centre, and offices, meeting rooms, seminar rooms and lounges of various sizes. With the additional support of the Ministry, we plan to produce new globally competitive products and solutions in the near future. These include self-service kiosks, self-service baggage claim systems, travel document authorisation systems, and self-service boarding gates to prepare airports for hassle-free and paperless biometric travel.
“Within this context, we will continue to provide consultancy and application services to facilitate quick, comfortable travel and smart airport concepts.”
The program implemented through Law No. 5746 on Support of Research Development and Design supports around 1,200 R&D centres and 60,000 of their employees.
According to the Ministry’s data, there are 3,227 ongoing and complete R&D projects.
