Korea Aerospace Industries has chosen Harris Corporation to furnish carriage and release systems for the next-generation Korea Fighter-Experimental (KF-X) program.
The KF-X jet is a program aimed at developing an advanced multirole fighter for the air force of the Republic of Korea, Harris Corp said in a statement Tuesday.
Harris will supply its BRU-47 and BRU-57 release systems; the BRU-47 single store carrier, says Harris, reduces the time needed for loading stores using its patented sway-brace technology, which is designed to minimize rack sway due to aircraft maneuvers and munition release.
The BRU-57 is a smart-weapon-enabled, twin store carrier that doubles the payload capacity of aircraft without the need to modify any hardware, which allows for a wide array of payload configurations.
South Korea has unveiled an advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar prototype for its home-grown K-FX fighter jet program. South Koreas state-run Agency for Defense Development (ADD) conducted various tests of the mock-up version of the AESA radar run by Hanwha Systems,
South Korea has signed a technology support contract with an Israeli defense firm and has abandoned a plan to build a radar system for its KF-X fighter jet program. The state-run Agency for Defense Development signed the contract with Elta without revealing the exact volume of the contract
South Korea and Indonesia have opened a joint office to carry out consultations in the KF-X fighter aircraft development project. The office has been set up in Sacheon, 437 kilometers southeast of Seoul,
South Korea is planning to develop its own indigenous long-range air-to-ground missile that will be fitted onto the countrys KF-X fighter jets. The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) plans to start its research on relevant missile technologies from 2018 with a plan to produce some 200 air-to-surface Taurus-class missiles until 2031, Yonhap reports Wednesday
Indonesia receiving a proposal from Saab for the Gripen fighter plane and its investment in the KF-X program hints at a delay or reconsideration in the procurement of Su-35 aircraft from Russia. Last month, Saab submitted a proposal to Indonesian authorities to supply its JAS 39 Gripen multirole fighter aircraft to meet the air combat requirements of the Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU)
South Koreas next-generation fighter aircraft will reportedly be equipped with an indigenous, air-launched, long-range cruise missile, modelled after the Taurus KEPD 350, manufactured by the German-Swedish firm Taurus Systems, according to Defense News. The Agency for Defense Development, or ADD, is expected to finalize a local partner company by September for exploratory development of the missile for the countrys next-generation Korea Fighter-Experimental (KF-X) program
