South Korea unveils artillery locating radar

24th April 2017 - 13:06 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Hong Kong


South Korea, facing a formidable artillery and rocket threat from the other side of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), has developed a new indigenous artillery locating radar system.

Unimaginatively labelled the Counter-Artillery Detection Radar II, the mobile system should be operationally deployed next year.

This product, which Shephard understands is from LIG Nex1 since the Korean company lists an 'anti-artillery radar' on its website, will be deployed close to the DMZ so that it can react to any North Korean artillery, mortar or rocket fire.

The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) announced on 24 April the approaching introduction of the system.
