Mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) pose a significant threat to Turkey. In order to serve as a mine detection test facility on a national & regional basis and to conduct research on related technologies, “Mines and Improvised Explosive Devices Countermeasures Test and Research Center - MEKTAM” was established in 2015 at TÜBİTAK Gebze Campus.

Indoor testing pools containing several types of soil and outdoor testing areas simulating real-life conditions are utilized for measuring the performance of mine detection devices and holding their acceptance tests, as well as carrying out in-house R&D activities. Relevant organizations are welcome to use the test and evaluation infrastructure of MEKTAM within the required permissions.
