KAI and IAI loiter with intent

12th March 2021 - 10:00 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Christchurch

Integrating manned-unmanned teaming onto its aircraft platforms is uppermost in KAI's mind.

On 3 March, Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) signed a collaborative agreement with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) concerning loitering munitions.

The parties stated: ‘As part of the MoU, KAI and IAI are aiming to expand their long cooperation to market loitering munitions to Republic of Korea Army (ROKA) requirements.’

Hyun-ho Ahn, President and CEO of KAI, said that by combining South Korean domestic aircraft expertise with 'excellent' UAS technology from IAI, the two companies 'would provide a foothold for innovation such as strengthening the defence power of the Republic of Korea and commercialising exports in the future'.

KAI and IAI are no strangers
