Hanwha Systems selected as preferred bidder for KDDX combat system and multi-function radar

by Dae Young Kim

Hanwha Systems was selected on 16 September as the final preferred bidder to provide the combat system and multifunction radar for South Korea’s KDDX destroyer programme, the company said in a press release.

The combat system, to be developed by Hanwha Systems and South Korea’s Agency for Defense Development (ADD), will integrate the ship’s various sensors, weapons, communications, and command systems, with real-time tactical information-processing technology and multiple datalinks built in to optimise the ship’s combat capabilities.

The KDDX’s integrated mast (I-MST), which improves the stealth capability of the ship, will house a dual-band multifunction phased-array radar using the S-band for long-range anti-aircraft and ballistic missile detection and tracking, alongside the X-band for short-range anti-aircraft and sea-level target detection and tracking.

Infrared search and tracking (IRST) sensors, and identification friend-or-foe (IFF) devices will also be installed on the mast.
