According to Yonhap News Agency, the Republic of Korea Navy's command and control system has been upgraded in a 147 billion won (US$124 million) project to improve commanders' ability to make decisions in combat situations.

The new system allows Navy units to share information on target missiles with other units in real-time. DAPA noted the new system a ‘back-up’ C4I station could become operational within 10 minutes should the main station be damaged. It is also capable of handling three times as much data as the previous version, according to the agency.

In the past, the naval command and control system and the tactical data processing system were operated with 4 terminals for each system, but now it is possible to operate effectively with one terminal. Target processing capacity is improved and survivability is enhanced.

The C4I system is core to network-centric warfare, as it visualizes battlefields through the connection of surveillance, decision-making and attack processes.
