Business Unit


Overview



Space & Defense BUBuilding upon 50 years of expertise in lightweight structures, bulletproof materials, ultra-high temperature heat-resistant materials, electromagnetic wave functional materials, aircraft parts, guided weapons, and launch tubes for high-performance mobile weapon systems, as well as maritime, aeronautical, and terrestrial applications, the Space & Defense Business Unit is leading the globalization and electrification of the defense industry.
Its success began with the development of military bulletproof helmets utilizing state-of-the-art composite materials.
Additionally, the unit has contributed significantly to the Korean aerospace industry by manufacturing payload fairings, first and second stage front fuselages, and composite structures for Korea's first space launch vehicle, 'Naro,' and its successor, 'Nuri.' Moving forward, the unit will continue to develop its proprietary technologies and secure high-value technology to expand globally and beyond, even into space.
