South Korea intends to develop its own analog system AEGIS

South Korea intends to develop a national integrated multi-functional integrated ship system weaponssimilar to the American system AEGIS. The development program has already been approved.


On April 27, 2020, the South Korean government approved a program for developing a ship weapon system in the image of AEGIS. This system should be installed on prospective destroyers of the KDDX (KDX-IV) type planned for construction for the Republic's Naval Forces. The Ministry of Defense on the same day announced a tender for the creation of the system, the winner should be determined in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Details are not provided for the creation of the new system, except that it should provide "detection and tracking of ballistic missiles."

The six destroyers of the KDDX type (KDX-IV) planned for construction should have a standard displacement of about 6 thousand tons and 64 universal vertical launchers of the South Korean KLS system. Previously, it was planned to equip these destroyers with a lightweight version of the American AEGIS system with the AN / SPY-1F radar system, but now they will develop their own URO system of the American type.

The laying of the lead ship of the type KDDX (KDX-IV) is expected around 2023.

        The flag is in their hands ... although ... their Wishlist will shorten it. They will impose on them a "partner" of their own.
        More interesting - LG or Samsung, IPS or OLED? smile

    China is building destroyers URO. Japan also makes its own. So Korea decided. They have good microelectronics. I am sure they will make this system.

      The southerners have the three most armed destroyers in the world. And three more are building.
      80 Standards in two MK41.
      a separate VPU for their national KR - Hyunmoo for 48 cells (that is, 48 ​​missiles will bring 500 kg of heat per 1000 km).
      16 RCC version of their harpoon
      A total of 144 missiles of the main types (and by the way it still has RIM-116, it’s worth it, but in MK41 you can shove ESSM packs).

    Once, a long time ago, I had the opportunity to participate in a "friendly drinking bout" of my partners with the vice president of the then Gold star (current LG) and its director of the microwave oven department. Weak Koreans quickly passed out. Well, we "slowly and tastefully" continued to drink and plan for "brilliant prospects." Suddenly, the Koreans woke up, got sober and ... and ... and wanted the local "women with low social responsibility." Partners did not disappoint. But the ladies were unhappy: "What kind of drunks did you send us?" Here is a story of the introduction of advanced South Korean technology in the post-Soviet space. repeat

        1. Koreans - "craftsmen with golden hands." But absolutely without brains. They can do something that “not Koreans” came up with, even better than Germans (a controversial argument, but I insist).
        2. They can never come up with Aegis or something like that. "The mentality is not that."
        3. I did not pay. Partners.
        4.
        Freebie....
        Even Korean multimillionaires are being spent for free. drinks

          The LG company you mentioned is one of the most innovative in the world.
          Their domestic patents, which others bought, brought her billions.
          In particular, they invented inverters for washing machines and compressors.
          air conditioners. And a new generation of TVs.

    Replacing the American AEGIS system is expensive. Such projects need to be done in several countries, only satellite constellation is worth what

      Well, together with the DPRK, they have the ability to launch satellites .. USA is probably shocked by such a decision by Korea ..
      Eun has long said that we will go closer to South Korea, but without the United States

        The joker however ............. and the USA still haven’t said their word. There are many of whom they were planning to build, but the Americans competently press all the allies in technical matters

          There is no arguing, but hope dies last .. The main work in this direction is ongoing and very active hi

    Is it too expensive for South Korea? On the side, this system is unlikely to succeed in selling. Americans will try to do everything possible to prevent this from happening.

    I have no doubt how much Koreans can create such a system.
    However, why is this US competitor?
    I won’t be surprised if the Korean surpasses Aegis in all respects ...

    Well, based on the figure, the new radar is not even like the Aegis, but the Dutch-German APAR is more like ... the latest Japanese radars are also not in the Aegis style

    And without Aegis herself, how will it work? There is a lot tied to the exchange of information between radars
