Transferring Naval Technology to Australia


The Korean Navy is considering transferring its shipbuilding technology and ship parts in return for a royalty at the request of its Australian counterpart. The Australian Navy is seeking to model after South Korea’s KDX-III program aimed at building Aegis-equipped advanced destroyers and apparently negotiations are now underway. The request was made as the Australian military thinks that the Korean version of 7,000 ton-class destroyer is much more suitable for its Navy than those of the United States and Japan.

It has been said that Australia already made that kind of request during a meeting with South Korean representatives on the sidelines of a regional forum of the Association of Southeast Asian Association (ASEAN) in Laos last May. The Korean Navy embarked a three-phase KDX program in 1986, as part of efforts to form a new “strategic mobile fleet”, consisting of destroyers, submarines and anti-submarine aircraft.
