The United States and South Korea agreed to cooperate in enhancing their awareness of space conditions for military purposes.
The agreement was reached during the Space Cooperation Working Group (SCWG) meeting in Washington.
As part of the deal, the two nations will share space intelligence, support the continued development of space experts through training, and conduct joint space operations.
While the South Korean Defense Ministry did not provide specific details, it said the cooperation includes “concrete tasks” to enhance space security capabilities.
Additional efforts to raise awareness of space conditions
The recently signed agreement between the United States and South Korea is the latest in a series of efforts by the Asian country to enhance its space-related capabilities.
In 2021, the South Korean government opened its first space operations center in Gryeong to establish space policies and enhance cooperation with allied nations.
The country also signed a memorandum of understanding with the US Space Force to form a joint advisory body for space policy and to share information on space monitoring.
