The Aerospace and Automotive Division - The Growth Engine of Tomorrow Running on High Technology with a program of continuous R&D
Strengthening Global Competitiveness
Hanwha¡¯s Aerospace and Automotive Business began in 1990 with the KFP, the Korean version of the F-16 jet fighter. Since then, Hanwha has been a major manufacturer and distributor in the Korean aerospace industry. It has manufactured hydraulic systems, flight control actuators and fuel systems for aircraft, launch vehicles and guided weapons. Hanwha also aims to expand its overseas markets by actively engaging in exports.
Fixed Wing Aircrafts
Hanwha is expanding its exports of aircraft parts for military and civil aircraft by exploiting its extensive experience and expertise in this area in collaboration with its overseas business partners.
Hanwha is recognized as the best manufacturer of aircraft parts in Korea. It was chosen as a major contributor to the Korean Utility Helicopter (KUH) project, with the responsibility of developing 9 major components, includi-
ng the hydraulic actuation system, the fuel system and the brake system.
Leveraging its extensive experience and expertise in the aerospace sector, Hanwha is now entering the field of developing launch vehicles and constructing launch test facilities. These areas are acknowledged as prospective major industries for Korea in the future.
In addition to the project for developing test facilities for launch vehicles, Hanwha is also manufacturing facilities for environment testing, combusti-
on testing, and upgrade. This will deepen and extend its experience and expertise even more in the field of system engineering technology so that it will be very well placed in the future to develop new systems.
Shipbuilding/Industrial Equipments & Materials
Using its extensive expertise and many years of experience and research gained from its involvement in the aerospace industry, Hanwha is now participating in the industrial equipment and materials industry as well as in shipbuilding and manufacturing industrial parts.
Through aircraft maintenance and supplying military spare parts for the KF-16 Hanwha has been playing a major role in military operations and strategy management systems.
Hanwha is undertaking a project to develop the KO-1, a low flight-speed capable aircraft, by improving upon KT-1, the first aircraft to be indepen-
dently manufactured in Korea.
T-50 and A-50 are anticipated to replace F-4 and F-5 fighter jets.
There will be a great demand for these aircraft from the Korean air force and many will be exported to other countries.
