company leonardo, the boeing hornet, the euro titan typhoon, and the f 35. the impressive formants of the forer was a victory lockheed, which had to cancel its appearance two years ago due to engine trouble. now my interview with joseph white. i asked him what the israel-turkey reconciliation could mean. white: it is- mr. not a secret that we have good defense contact with turkey and turkish industries. the project went ahead. we were very proud to cooperate with turkey for the benefit of turkey. unfortunately, what happened happened. it is sorry. after these agreements have come to a reality, we need some time time tosides will need digest, renew connections, have a

government before we as an industry will run and grab from both sides what is there for the turkish government. i believe also, and i want to industries,turkish they are advancing the technology base, i'm sure, for that. i am a aware of part of that. come, we will have to be more creative, and of eight of, and more open in what we call today -- innovative in what we call data share. we are looking forward to reconnecting and renewing the connection with the turkish government, turkish industry. i believe by the end of the day, we are neighbors in this very, very interesting area. in this area there is never a moment. the enemy of today is the allied tomorrow, and
11:03 am
that's a coincidence or the emerging of interest of both countries. again, threats coming for both of them. i believe in the coming future, pending israeli government approval, we will be visiting turkey, opening discussions with industry and trying to do things together. there is no reason why not. tol: talk about the efforts compound the threat the region of the world iai is dealing with. what is the company involved with in terms of partnering with the government to respond to those threats, and you mentioned turkey -- how important is partnering with allies in the region? the biggest aerospace company in israel is challenged for
11:04 am
to the table. if you are talking about a problem in gaza, the north, or isis issues, or something like that. part of the portfolio is too big for these threats. if you have very big uavs or sophisticated missiles, not necessarily collected to the emergence ahead, but they are the much preparing for north of lebanon. they can go to details. this, all lost by definition, is being positively linked to other countries where they have similar threats and operations and problems. we continuing the international market regarding this small case
11:05 am
solution, and i am very active in this field. jill: wonderful. as you mentioned, iai is the largest aerospace company in israel, and it is government owned. for the u.s. market, that is a different concept. talk about the challenges associated with that, and the opportunity to collaborate more with government, if that is also the case. mr. white: challenges and nice word for the situation. we are unique, not only us, but other israeli companies. we are from one-sided 100% e-government controlled con -- 100% government-owned company, but on the other side we act like a private company. on one side there are tough limitations and challenges because the government is heavy, limitations, regulations we have to maneuver through,
11:06 am
other side, some of the customers we are facing are having some kind of a -- let's say easy feeling talking with us backed we are so-called by the government or we are not a private company. we see the backing of the government as the backbone, a supportive argument for our marketing activities. on if you put both of them the table, it is a challenging situation for the ceo to manage through all of these, let's say, inputs into this big equation, but by the end of the day, personally, i can tell you, in spite being a 100% government-owned company, i don't feel at all that somebody stops me from running it. ever. is almost day by day running to jerusalem, but that is part of the job of the iai

jill aitoro: welcome back to "defense news." i had the opportunity to sit down with muharrem dortkasli
11:09 am
, ceo of turkish aerospace industries to get his take on the turkey-israel reconciliation. mr. dortkasli: we still have relations in the past, but, i mean, the decision for the reconciliation was taken recently. so, it is too early to make any comment on that, but, in general, we have been quite pleased to cooperate with the companies between friendly countries. expect to have bilateral relations with the industries. in the past, it is mostly unilateral. companies are ahead of us on the technology perspective, and they do more kodak, butiv
11:10 am
we have our own progress. electronics, area next, aerospace. so, now, the new era is supposed to be bilateral -- is supposed to have bilateral relations between the two countries, but the decision is very fresh, very new, so i don't know yet. i do not know how it is going to affect. jill: the hope is enhanced -- enhanced opportunities between companies and the government as well. mr. dortkasli: why not? we have relations with the companies all around the world belonging to the allied countries. be paired with the society companies. jill:
11:11 am
found interesting in turkey is the number of government-backed companies in the defense community in particular. i wonder, it not being something we see quite as much in the united states, how does this impact the competitive night -- landscape? mr. dortkasli: foundation-controlled companies, we cannot call them government-owned companies. something very special for turkey, so the companies controlled by the foundation are the private companies. they have their own board, their own systems, budget systems, but the shareholder is there with the foundation. [indiscernible] countries, for the ha
11:12 am
spend, limited resources, but a high level of sequence -- they are supposed to concentrate on -- same companies to put inevitably, to the current one. to do that, to go on our two --ist on the central investments of engineering in the last 30, 40 years. they are the oldest in the market, and they are the biggest fund. -- e are companies we are supposed to assume that
11:13 am
it is also expected of them to create their own ecosystem -- ,irst tires, second tires production type of things, which they do that. tai is one of them. so, to develop an industry to widen the base, widen the infrastructure, and rate the capabilities, is something expected. the winners are the companies having engineering capabilities focused on development programs, system engineering, program management, completion management, activities, and other daily activities or the subsystem this should toward them under the -- their control
11:14 am
by the foundation-controlled companies, in my opinion, which reach a capability at a certain level to compete with the others globally. that take that question in manner, and whatever the model applied by turkish defense industries perspective is true. jill: thank you so much for drain us today. mr. dortkasli: thank you. jill: one return, we hear from the chief of f 35 program at lod martin.

11:17 am
them to deploy different configurations, all things we think they are -- are improvements. software operations working through, ensuring that information is working well before we turn it to the customer. we are taking extra time to make sure it is working before we feel we will give the users opportunity to work out any bugs. babione also address an issue that has gained headlines. he spoke about an air force assessment of alternative. babione: we share concerns pit we have confidence it will be certified for always, sizes, hike up pilot the f-35 will be certified for, and we think that will be done by the end of this fall. we have not been opposed by the joint program office

11:21 am
among theheon is defense contractors to make huge investments in cyber security, targeting both commercial and defense. i sat down with dave white grass, president of information and services, to talk about how the companies approaching seven security and white is such a challenge. david: raytheon has been involved in cyberspace at different levels for over three decades, and over the past eight
11:22 am
rapidnment evolving at a pace, so we took those poor capabilities and we started to invest both internally, and we acquired over 14 different companies that have different advanced levels of capability somewhere in the cyber domain,'s -- specifically on the security side. we made our largest investment about a year ago in a commercial company that we have now we break -- rebranded where we took commercial capabilities and took the advanced products, advanced cyber products in the iis business -- i am the president of that business -- we combine those entities, and now we have thousands of commercial customers worldwide where we offer what we consider the most advanced cyber security project -- products in the
11:23 am
put it around a strategy of what we would term a layered defense. that is operating as a separate commercial business within raytheon. iis, within my business in there are multiple areas -- multiple elements of what we would call the threat environment in the cyber domain area, and there is virtually no element of that area that we don't participate in today. jill: so, i find it interesting makese defense companies huge investments in cyber over the last few years. mr. wajsgras: jill: yes. --mr. wajsgras: yes. seen a lot of them we have pullout in commercial, saying these are different markets. raytheon has very much invested in both. why is that? mr. wajsgras: we understand these are very different end -users, but the threat environment is not unique. thth
11:24 am
basically the same, whether you are working and supporting government customers -- that could be domestic government or international governments, or commercial companies anywhere in the world. so, we have a common capability, common technologies. now, i would say when we are working with our military customers or government customers, there are capabilities in that space that are not readily available in the commercial market, but the underlying, the core capabilities, are very common to both. now, what we do that is unique, and i think why may be other companies haven't been able to advance their capabilities in -- it isrcial space basically structural. commerciallated our business, and they focus on commercial companies with commercial products.
11:25 am
it the defense part of raytheon, we primarily focus on services and unique capabilities we offered to government customers. ok.: it is often said the defense world could use more influence from what is happening in the commercial world, particularly cyber in the private sector. are there lessons learned, capabilities from the commercial side being pulled into the defense business? up a robust: we set model from a synergy standpoint where we can share capabilities and processes to develop more advanced capabilities. we share it between these two entities, and we do work with other companies, both in the defense industry, as well as commercial companies, to bring nation technologies and then advance them within raytheon. jill: let's talk about what you are seen
11:26 am
you are about to talk about. mr. wajsgras: ok. jill: where are the biggest gaps in terms of cyber security in the defense and military within the clients and the defense world? mr. wajsgras: so, that is a very open-ended question. jill: it is, yes. mr. wajsgras: i think the challenge we face today is twofold. one is the threat environment -- people have heard this, but it is real. the threat environment is evolving daily. it changes on a daily basis, so it is hard to stay out in front of those types of threats. that is part one. ,art two is we now recognize collectively, that this threat is real. it is pervasive, and it is going to continue on for the foreseeable future. a.t is part two part two b is there are systems in the field
11:27 am
that are being procured today. now, the systems that are in the field today obviously have some level of cyber security capabilities built into those systems. those need to be advanced, and the department and agencies around the government are working on that today, and raytheon is very involved in supporting our customers in advancing those security requirements. then, with respect to fielding new systems, at this stage, and this has happened over the last few years, those requirements are now beginning to be built into the proposal process and to new awards. so, when new systems are fielded, they will be fielded and they will be cyber secure. jill: practice of for joining us we appreciate it. mr. wajsgras: i appreciate it. my pleasure. jill: don't miss "defense news
