Space Hub, which oversees Hanwha's space industry, established a space research center in collaboration with KAIST.
It is the largest research center in the space sector created by private companies and universities in Korea, while Hanwha will invest 10 billion won in a research center established under the direct control of the vice president of research at KAIST.
Space Hub is the general headquarters of the space business launched in March, and Hanwha Aerospace, Hanwha Systems, Hanwha and Satrec I are participating.
The first research project of Space Hub and KAIST is the development of 'ISL (Inter Satellite Links)', a low-orbit satellite communication technology. ISL is an essential technology for implementing communication services using low-orbit satellites.
The key is to exchange data between satellites as "lasers.". Unlike conventional geostationary satellites, low-orbit satellites can quickly process large amounts of data as multiple satellites exchange data with lasers using ISL technology.
In addition, the Internet will be available on flights and ships in operation and in remote areas where electricity is not available. It can be used immediately for satellite communication and air mobility projects promoted by Hanwha System.
