Wang Jang-Hong, the Defense Agency of South Korea, announced on Wednesday in a press release that they will start a blockchain platform to facilitate their military defense projects which were selected as Public Leadership Pilot Project in January 2019 by the Ministry of Science Technology and Information of South Korea.
Blockchain Technology Will Protect South Korea Military Secrets
The blockchain platform will be used in South Korean Defense to avoid any kind of alteration of classified data belonging to the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA). The Defense Agency for Technology and Quality and the Agency for Defense Development will come together to aid this project.
Moreover, the mutual sharing of the blockchain platform will help in increasing the reliability of the South Korean Defense activities and communication between the organizations.
Use of Blockchain for Defense in South Korea
The press release also emphasized the Agency’s plan of making the whole system efficient by not only improving the communication system with a secured blockchain platform but also reducing much of the paperwork involved with such sensitive businesses.
It was also mentioned in the press release that the use of blockchain would further reduce the burden of defense companies by combining the notification business counter and firearms transportation permit. Moreover, relevant information can be shared within agencies to make the work efficient.
The South Korea Defense Agency also plans to use blockchain to manage and record the entire process from funding application to final support of the defense business.
Planning and Coordination Officer (Senior Official), Kim Tae-gon, of the Defense Business Administration said, “We plan to apply the blockchain technology, one of the key technologies of the 4th industrial revolution, to the defense business services to innovate the public service and develop it as a leading model of the blockchain in the future.”
