Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) on a loitering munitions programme, to secure a new concept for weapons systems that are intended to maximise the effectiveness of Suppression and Destruction of Enermy Air Defences (SEAD & DEAD) missions. The expanded cooperation between IAI and KAI will establish concrete cooperation plans through joint feasibility studies between the two companies, IAI writes.

The new concept weapon system technology is to perform long-endurance reconnaissance missions with the ability to strike a target immediately when necessary. IAI’s loitering munitions, including the HARPY NGW and HAROP loitering missile, are combat proven in many countries around the world, the company stresses.
