The Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute (MARINTEK) performs R&D in ocean technology for a global market, primarily in the maritime and oil and gas sectors and ocean energy. MARINTEK's main offices and laboratories are located in Trondheim, Norway. A rational combination of physical and numerical modeling approaches has always been MARINTEK's strategy in its research activities and commercial services. Prediction of vessel and propeller performances, design optimization process, wake analyses and studies on propulsor-hull interaction are just a few examples of CFD applied to ship hydrodynamics.

STM was established in 1991 by the decree of the Defence Industry Executive Committee to provide system engineering, technical support, project management, technology transfer and logistics support services for Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) and also develop necessary software technologies for defence systems and establish/operate national software centers for software development, maintenance/support.
