Hanwha Systems


As a leading global total solutions company, Hanwha Systems provides differentiated smart technologies in defense ICT and information infrastructure. In August 2018, we launched the new ICT division through the merger with Hanwha S&C. Our ICT division will enable us to increase our leadership in defense electronics by leveraging advanced defense IT and system integration capabilities. And by strengthening our SI business competencies, we will be able to expand into areas of public infrastructure and private security.

Hanwha Systems R&D Center


Since its founding in 1978, the Hanwha Systems defense division has significantly advanced the defense capabilities of South Korea’s military. We’ve applied over 40 years of experience and technologies in precision electronics and ICT to develop advanced systems for surveillance, reconnaissance, control, communication, computer, and intelligence (C4I), naval, and aerospace.

Our surveillance and reconnaissance systems that we developed for South Korea’s national defense include the thermal observation device (TOD), electro-optic tracking system (EOTS), infrared detection tracking equipment, and multifunctional observation scopes. Hanwha Systems is also developing an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for the next-generation South Korean fighter KF-X and upgrading our cutting-edge radars, including FFX Batch-Ⅲ Multifunction radar and M-sam Multifunction radar.

Hanwha Systems’ C4I businesses are completely reliant on our original technologies for developing products that can operate in future combat environments. We produce next-generation tactical information communication networks (TICN) using these technologies and next-generation satellite communications systems. For the South Korean Navy, we serve as the sole supplier for their naval combat management system. Our proprietary technology is at the heart of their enhanced combat systems and integrated solutions for sensors and armament.

In aerospace, we are developing core avionic electronics for the light armed helicopter (LAH) and Korean fighter airplane (KF-X). We are also building Synthetic Aperture Radars for military reconnaissance satellites. Our strategy is to lead the future defense industry by improving our technical capabilities and building strong relationships with key partners who are leading in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Our seven customer support centers across the nation provide product support for weapon systems operations. Hanwha Systems offers integrated logistics support (ILS) with timely customer support, guaranteed.

Hanwha Systems ICT division’s history dates back to Hanwha Group’s ICT team integration in 1991. After spinning off from Hanwha Corporation in 2001, Hanwha Systems ICT has accrued deep-level experiences in system integration from having developed world-class IT solutions and services over the years in a variety of industries including manufacturing, defense, construction, financial services, retail, service, and education. We’re now building customized systems with expertise that differentiates us and makes us more competitive in these industries.

Our ICT division operates a Cloud-based Big Data center that provides data analysis. And combined with our smart factories powered by IoT and Big Data technologies, we’re on a path to improve productivity, predictability, quality, and processes for our companies and our clients. We’re even helping our nation as a whole)—keeping cities safe with our integrated security and control platforms designed for the public infrastructure.

We are on a journey, a digital transformation, seeking both possibilities and opportunities with digital innovations and disruptive technologies that combine AI, IoT, and Big Data. We’re building internal block chain platforms in anticipation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We’re forging AI technology partnerships with global leaders like with Element AI, a globally leading AI company. Our partnerships will lead to the development of core technologies on deep learning including text analysis, natural language processing, and knowledge databases. We will apply our technologies to strengthen our businesses globally in finance, manufacturing, and the services industries so that by 2020, we can begin benefiting from the possibilities realized and the opportunities taken.
