Hanwha Systems awarded $40 million space radar deal
Hanwha Systems has awarded a 45 billion won deal by the Defense Industry Technology Center’s research and development project to develop a next-generation space radar that can detect and track space objects with precision.
According to the defense and information technology service unit of Hanwha Group, Hanwha Systems will develop three core technologies for the next five years.
It includes the precise detection and tracking system for space objects and an adaptive optical system that shoots radar to the sky and provides clear images of space regardless of different atmospheric conditions.
Hanwha Systems CEO Kim Youn-Chul vowed that his company, through the R&D program, will do its best to help the military to establish independent space surveillance and patrol system.
With the increasing number of satellites launched by various countries, the space radar will help South Korea address collisions in space and react to space debris falling to Earth.
