Nato has signed the fifth and sixth contracts with Turkish technology-driven think tank STM ThinkTech to leverage its Aggregated Resilience Model.
The model is intended to provide decision-making processes to help the alliance deal with various crises including pandemics, power blackouts, cyber-attacks, and big human movements.
Under the fifth contract, the Aggregated Resilience Model will support Nato’s ‘Multi-Domain Operations in Urban Environment Concept Validation Exercise’.
Along with other global companies, the firm will play a role in the planning and implementation of the exercise.
The sixth contract requires STM to offer consultancy services linked to the use of the model in Nato’s Crisis Management Exercise 2023.
STM’s Aggregated Resilience Model evaluates the impact of crisis situations on both civilian and military systems.
The model is also capable of assessing possible risks to key infrastructure under the energy, transportation, and communication sectors.
This enables Nato decision makers to finalise appropriate measures.
STM general manager Özgür Güleryüz said: “We produce unique models for our clients, who include members of the domestic ecosystem, as well as critical international organisations.
“The Aggregated Resilience Model that we have developed to support Nato’s decision-making processes assumes an important role in the strategic level analysis of the effects of large-scale and complex problems and in determining the road maps drawn by decision-makers.”
STM ThinkTech has been serving as Nato’s solution partner since 2019.
So far, the firm has created four support models for the alliance that have been used by Nato Allied Command Transformation.
