Hanwha Systems R&D Center


Since its founding in 1978, the Hanwha Systems' System Division has significantly advanced the defense capabilities of South Korea's military using our forty-plus years of experience and technologies in precision electronics and IT. We have fulfilled our clients' needs by developing advanced systems for surveillance, reconnaissance, control, communication, computer, and intelligence (C4I), naval and aerospace.

In surveillance and reconnaissance systems, we developed a thermal observation device (TOD), electro-optic tracking system (EOTS), infrared detection tracking equipment and multifunctional observation scopes. We successfully provided products to South Korea's armed forces and are working to build export opportunities. Hanwha Systems is also developing active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar for the next-generation Korean fighter airplane KFX while upgrading our cutting-edge radars, such as multifunction radar for next-generation Korean convey and Chungung multifunction radar.

Hanwha Systems' C4I businesses are totally based on our original technologies for the future combat environment. We produce next-generation tactical information communication networks (TICN) using these technologies while implementing next-generation satellite communications system. In the naval systems domain, we are the sole supplier for the naval combat management system used by the South Korea Navy. With our proprietary technology, we are working to further enhance combat system and integrated solutions for sensors and armament.

In aerospace systems, we are developing core avionics electronics for the light armed helicopter (LAH) and Korean fighter airplane and radar for military reconnaissance satellites. Our strategy to lead the future defense industry is to strengthen our technical capabilities and to build strong relationships with key partners in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Along with seven support centers around the nation, Hanwha Systems offers integrated logistics support (ILS) for operating weapons systems that guarantee timely customer support.

Hanwha Systems ICT Division's history traces back to Hanwha Group's ICT team integration in 1991. Since its foundation in 2001 after separating from Hanwha Corporation, we have gained experiences in system integration by offering world-class IT solutions and services to a variety of industries, including manufacturing, defense, construction, financial services, retail, service, and education. Banking on our differentiated expertise, we are building customized systems and strengthening business competitiveness.

Our ICT Division operates a cloud-based Big Data center that provides data analysis services. We are also responsible for processing efficiency by building smart factories as we track the rise of IoT and Big Data technologies. In addition, we are helping to make the nation and cities safe by creating integrated security and control platforms for public infrastructure.

We are becoming a leader in the era of digital transformation as we build internal block chain platforms to manage the Fourth Industrial Revolution and forging AI technology partnerships with global leaders while incorporating core solutions.

With our globally proven technology, superior quality, and outstanding service, we're growing our market share and being recognized worldwide.
