KRISO Partners With ROK Navy to Develop Advanced Navy Ship Technology

▶ KRISO-ROK Navy MOU for cooperation and exchange

▶ Joining forces to achieve Korea’s vision of becoming a maritime power with a blue water navy 



□ The Korea Research Institute of Ships & Ocean engineering (President Booki Kim, hereinafter KRISO) and the Republic of Korea Navy (Chief of Naval Operations of the Republic of Korea, Suk-jong Boo) will join hands to achieve Korea’s vision of becoming ad maritime power with a blue water navy.


□ KRISO announced that the ROK Navy and KRISO signed a MOU for cooperation and exchange on the 27th at the KRISO office.

□ The two parties agreed to cooperate in the three sectors of △ navy ship design/operation, △ maritime ICT, and △ education and research to develop advanced navy ship technologies through active cooperation and exchange.

□ In particular, they plan to conduct joint research and facilities support for improving navy ship technology, while jointly developing new technology R&D projects with naval applications such as unmanned systems, communications and sensors. In addition, KRISO will provide consultation for the operation of the Marine Unmanned Systems Education Center as well as conduct joint research with faculty of the ROK Naval Academy.

□ This MOU is expected to generate synergy by bringing together the facilities, equipment and personnel of the two institutions. 

□ KRISO has been accumulating technological expertise with a long history of research on noise reduction for propellerrse used in submarines, surface combatants and torpedos, using the world’s 2nd largest cavitation tunnel.

□ This partnership with the ROK Navy will not only contribute to the development of navy ship technology but also create a foundation for the application of source technology such as unmanned vessels, electrically propelled ships, marine unmanned systems and information technology to navy ships to build a technologically advanced navy. 

□ Meanwhile, the ROK Navy will also boost its combat power by improving naval ships currently in operation, understanding the latest navy ship technologies and applying them to weapon systems through academic and technolgical information exchange with KRISO.

□ KRISO President Booki Kim promised that “KRISO will actively cooperate with the ROK Navy, providing its expertise and research facilities to support Korea’s rise as a maritime power,” adding, “in particular, we hope to apply comprehensive information technologies such as maritime unmanned systems to support the construction of a smart navy, with greater automation, intelligence and efficiency in weapon systems and naval power operation systems.”

□ Rear Admiral Youngsu Kim, Head of the Naval Force Analysis, Test & Evaluation Group commented “this MOU is hugely meaningful in that it built a foundation for partnership with KRISO which leads Korean technology in navy ship design and construction as well as unmanned ships,” adding, “we will implement joint projects for the respective sectors at the Navy Headquarters level to produce real results for transforming Korea into a maritime power, making this MOU a new benchmark for civilian-military cooperation.”

□ The MOU signing ceremony was attended only by key representatives of the two institutions including KRISO President Booki Kim and Rear Admiral Youngsu Kim, Head of the Naval Force Analysis, Test & Evaluation Group due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
