Hanwha Systems is intensifying its collaboration with Leonardo S.p.A., a prominent defense entity within the European Union (EU), to facilitate the overseas export of AESA radar (Active Electronically Scanned Array Radar) for domestic fighter aircraft.

On the 13th, Hanwha Systems disclosed that it had agreed with Leonardo to furnish 'Light Combat Aircraft AESA Radar' antennas. Leonardo is recognized as a global defense enterprise developing diverse aviation platforms and solutions encompassing aircraft, radar, and avionics equipment.

Per the terms of the contract, Hanwha Systems will provide Leonardo with the essential components of AESA radar. Both parties plan to collaborate on the innovative joint development of AESA radar tailored specifically for light attack aircraft and earmarked for international export. This cutting-edge technology is set to revolutionize the defense industry.

At the heart of this pioneering initiative lies the endeavor to craft an AESA radar customized for light combat aircraft, drawing upon the AESA radar technology underpinning the Korean fighter (KF-21). Furthermore, this export pact marks a significant milestone as it is the first time a radar antenna, developed leveraging domestic technology, is being exported abroad.

Hanwha Systems noted that Leonardo's choice was notably unconventional, interpreting it as an acknowledgment of its superlative radar technology. The company plans to further fortify its collaboration with Leonardo, advancing the development of assorted core devices and finished products of AESA radar to broaden its export reach, spanning Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

Concurrently, Hanwha Systems is gearing up for the inaugural mass production of the AESA radar for the Korean fighter jet (KF-21).
