SEOUL -- LIG Nex1, a defense contractor in South Korea, began delivering next-generation military radio sets for large-capacity data transmission and voice communication at the same time to support the establishment of a future combat system using artificial intelligence, big data and deep learning.
LIG Nex1 said in a statement on February 25 that it has developed tactical multi-band multirole radio (TMMR) with the help of the Agency for Defense Development, a national agency for research and development in defense technology. The first shipment has been completed. The project costs 1.2 trillion won ($1.08 billion) to replace existing military communication equipment with TMMR by 2025.
TMMR allows simultaneous communication through multiple channels with only a single piece of equipment, LIG Nex1 said, adding users can selectively operate various communication modes. It enables the integrated operation of network-centered command and tactical systems. Expectations for exports are high, the company said, pointing to PRC-999K, a portable radio transceiver set imported by Indonesia.
TMMR would play an important role in the so-called Army Tiger 4.0 program to establish an integrated command network by organically connecting command and control systems built independently. Information on enemies identified by reconnaissance assets, such as drones, robots and unmanned aerial vehicles, can be shared to demonstrate integrated combat capabilities.
A key element of Tiger 4.0 is the upgrade of combat vehicle capabilities through full networking, automatic mission planning and weapon selection, and the high-speed transmission of voice, data and video signals, among other things.
