Turkish Privatization Board sells, but who is buying?

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and the Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), a US satellite producer owned by a Turkish American, have agreed to jointly produce satellites for the Middle Eastern market.  TAI and Sierra Nevada announced this partnership during the International Defense Industry Fair (IDEF) in Istanbul on May 10.

SNC is a widely respected US defense manufacturer.  This cooperation with TAI is SNC’s first exposure to a potential partnership with a non-American corporation in pursuit of overseas markets.
