Turkish Artificial Intelligence Defense Company RobotEye Receives Investment from ARZPortfoy at a Valuation of $12.5M.

RobotEye AI, which produces next-generation smart surveillance and reconnaissance systems, secured investment from ARZ Portfoy, known for its investments in technology-based startup companies, at a valuation of $12.5 million to enhance its border security solutions. This investment marks a significant step towards addressing defense and security system demands from Western Europe, North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and Indo-Pacific countries facing border security challenges.

RobotEye AI made a rapid entry into the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance market with its
devices specially developed for vast and challenging terrains where traditional human-based border
security systems are not effective and communication infrastructure is inadequate. These innovative
and smart systems offer cost-effective and fully autonomous solutions, due to specially developed,
field-proven artificial intelligence algorithms. RobotEye’s command and control software platform,
“Central”, smartens up legacy devices, reduces human dependency in existing defense systems, and
operates as a next-generation decision support system. RobotEye’s patented flagship product “Smart
Trailcam – Solo” combines satellite connectivity and on-device edge AI to secure critical crossing points.

Developed for tactical and special operations units, the “Eye” System provides situational awareness
independent of any communication infrastructure in the field. The system enhances the security of
special forces operating in both domestic and cross-border sensitive areas by protecting them against
infiltration and sabotage threats, thus increasing their safety.

Dr. Ferit Cakici, the CEO of RobotEye AI, stated, “This investment from ARZ Portfoy will provide strong
support to our company’s technology and vision. With this investment, we will accelerate our growth,
expand our technological capabilities, and enhance our capacity to respond to international security

Murat Onuk, who serves as the Board Member and CEO of ARZ Portfoy, remarked, “Defense industry
ventures producing next-generation solutions that are intelligent and AI-based, requiring no human
intervention, have begun to emerge worldwide. Turkish initiative RobotEye stands out in this field, filling a critical gap in border protection and surveillance with their specially designed AI-supported smart
surveillance systems. We are delighted to support an innovative and visionary Turkish company like
RobotEye on a global scale.”

Recent security problems in various regions of the world have increased the need for AI-supported
defense technologies and highlighted the importance of companies working in this field. Companies
such as Anduril Industries, Helsing, Shield AI, which attract attention with their unmanned and smart
defense solutions, have already reached billion-dollar valuations. Similarly, Athens-based Lambda
Automata, which operates in the same field, recently attracted attention by securing a €6M investment
from European Union countries. These developments clearly show how artificial intelligence-supported
defense solutions are gaining momentum worldwide. These developments clearly indicate the
momentum that AI-supported defense solutions have gained globally.
