Korea be­gins in­stal­la­tion of ELINT col­lec­tion equip­ment in fighter planes

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

The Korean Agency for De­fence De­vel­op­ment has suc­ceeded in de­vel­op­ing an ELINT (elec­tronic in­tel­li­gence) and im­age in­tel­li­gence col­lec­tion sys­tems, which are in­stalled on F-16s and are able to col­lect ELINT and im­age in­tel­li­gence with do­mes­tic tech­nol­ogy, and will make it mil­i­tary strength in stages.

On De­cem­ber 30, the De­fence Ac­qui­si­tion Pro­gramme Ad­min­is­tra­tion ( DAPA) said the ELINT col­lec­tion sys­tem ADD de­vel­oped would be de­ployed in the mil­i­tary be­gin­ning that day, and the im­age in­tel­li­gence col­lec­tion sys­tem, com­plet­ing de­vel­op­ment that month, would be in­stalled next year, re­veal­ing the de­vel­op­ment com­ple­tion of those tech­nolo­gies.

To im­prove abil­ity to col­lect re­con­nais­sance in­tel­li­gence, DAPA in­vested 79.6 bil­lion won from 2007 to this year, pro­mot­ing the project of a “tac­ti­cal re­con­nais­sance in­tel­li­gence col­lec­tion sys­tem” for which the ELINT and im­age in­tel­li­gence col­lec­tion sys­tem are de­vel­oped with do­mes­tic tech­nol­ogy. Of these, the ELINT col­lec­tion sys­tem, start­ing de­ploy­ment that day, can col­lect and an­a­lyse elec­tronic in­tel­li­gence against en­emy’s elec­tronic threats in real-time.

In ad­di­tion, the im­age in­tel­li­gence col­lec­tion sys­tem to be de­ployed next year is for col­lect­ing and analysing night-day tar­get im­ages and as­sess­ing bat­tle dam­age dur­ing the war.

Bri­gadier Gen­eral Lee Seong-yong, the head of the com­mand and re­con­nais­sance pro­gramme depart­ment of DAPA, showed his ex­pec­ta­tion that these sys­tems en­able the mil­i­tary to rapidly col­lect in­tel­li­gence and sup­port air op­er­a­tions ef­fec­tively.
