DTTC – Demonstration, Training and Test Center (DTTC)

29 March

The Defence and Security Industry Association of the Czech Republic (DSIA) has established the Demonstration, Training and Test Center (DTTC) in the framework of its support for the domestic defence and security industry.

The DTTC will be located in the premises of OPTOKON, a.s. Jihlava where its primary mission is to promote the presentation activities of all members of the Association and to create an environment for the introduction of new technologies and systems departments for the Czech Republic. It will also be a place where there will be joint workshops and seminars to prepare the consortium associated in DSIA to jointly offer integrated solutions to the Ministry of Defence as well as outside the Czech  Republic. The DSIA expects that the use of DTTC will gradually expand with experience and the requirements and needs of DSIA members. The DSIA has established the center in order to find new methods and ways of promoting the domestic defence and security industry with the intention of playing an even greater role as an initiator of industry cooperation when setting up joint integrated solutions for the Ministry of Defence, or for the implementation of applied research, experimental development
and innovation. ........
