South Korean Defense buy Systecon’s software suite for cost effective acquisition and operation of defense systems
Consultancy and software developer Systecon’s software suite has been selected by the Republic of Korea Armed Forces in their effort to balance the simultaneous objectives of high performance and affordable cost of defense systems. Using true-to-life simulation and sophisticated applied mathematics, the software suite provides decision support to ensure that both technical design and support solutions are ideal from a cost effectiveness perspective.
In the several large defense system procurement programmes in South Korea, ADD (Agency for Defense Development) within the ROK Armed Forces plays a central role. ADD uses Systecon’s software suite to make sure that new technical systems and their support solution combine high capability and performance with affordability throughout the entire life cycle.
ADD recently expanded their number of licenses, when ADD Land Systems in Daejeon bought licenses for two of the tools in the suite; the optimization tool OPUS10 and simulation tool SIMLOX.
Mr. Roh Hyo-Sang, Chief Researcher at ADD Land Systems Division comments:
“Successful Life Cycle Management and the ability to develop cost effective solutions is critical in South Korea’s efforts to build a strong and self-reliable defense. In this context, it was a natural step for ADD Land Systems to acquire OPUS10 and SIMLOX for our strategic modeling and simulation“
The purchase was managed by Systecon’s South Korean representative Moasoft. It is an expansion of ADD’s use. Since 2010, the ADD division ADD Naval Systems in Seoul has used OPUS10 and SIMLOX as well as the third tool in the suite, the cost analysis tool CATLOC.
