Technology does not distinguish between weapon systems and force support (non-weapon) systems. Force support, which includes around 28,000 items ranging from bulletproof helmets to tents, directly impacts soldier morale and their ability to survive. Until 2012, however, the Korean military simply purchased commercialized gear rather than conduct R&D on a force support system, as evidenced by the fact that over 80% of Korea-developed technologies are used both commercially and militarily. It is time we relied more on force support, which has remained largely underdeveloped in Korea due the country’s weapon-based policies. We also research source technologies for developing future weapon systems. The S&T sector, Korea’s economic growth engine over the past 50 years, must dedicate its vast potential to tapping into the national defense industry, a Blue Ocean of the future. We are dedicated to advancing national defense capabilities in order to create a stronger, more technologically sophisticated fighting force.
