The United States and European countries allow carmakers to send out OTA updates. Policies will be developed so that OTA updates can be carried out anywhere and anytime.Through a sandbox regulation exemption program, the transport ministry allowed carmakers to develop OTA services in June 2020.

Hanwha Systems secures deal to deliver prototype of radar for dome-shaped air defense system

[Courtesy of Hanwha Systems]SEOUL -- Hanwha Systems, a key defense contractor affiliated with South Korea's Hanwha Group, has secured a deal from a state defense technology development agency to deliver the prototype of a radar for a dome-shaped air defense system that intercepts North Korea's long-range artillery shells and cruise missiles sneaking across the tightly guarded inter-Korean border.In a regulatory filing on November 15, Hanwha Systems said it has signed a contract worth 51.2 billion won ($38.8 million) with the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) to deliver a radar prototype by the end of July in 2024. Each launcher, containing 20 interceptors, is independently deployed and operated remotely via a secure wireless connection.An initial military roadmap presented by the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA), an arms procurement agency, called for the development of a LAMD system by 2029. In a report to President Yoon Suk-yeol in July, Defense Minister Lee Jong-sup came up with a renewed timetable to complete the operational deployment of a LAMD system earlier than scheduled. Most of the North's artillery equipment is positioned in concrete bunkers and tunnels.Hanwha Systems manufactures tactical communication systems, radar systems, naval combat systems, electro-optics, and fire control systems. The company has polished its skill and know-how through the localization of an advanced and sophisticated radar system for South Korea's homemade KF-21 fighter jet that made its maiden flight in July 2022.
