The Korean Agency for Defense Development has chosen Korean Air to develop a new ‘stealth UAV squadron’, reports UAS Vision. The company will develop a ‘manned-unmanned teaming system in which one manned aircraft and three to four stealth UAVs can carry out missions simultaneously. The squadron of UAVs will not only support and escort a manned aircraft, but will also be able to perform its own missions including surveillance, electronic interference tactics, and precise shooting’, according to Korean Air. These UAVs will also have ‘autonomous mission execution’ capabilities.
With over ‘20 years’ experience in UAV development to secure next-generation core technologies for stealth UAVs such as manned-unmanned teaming, cluster control and autonomous mission execution.’
The Republic of Korea is involved in the development, testing and use of weapon systems with autonomous functions, and does not support the negotiation of a legally binding instrument on autonomous weapons systems.
