South Korea to beef up GPS surveillance system

South Korea: South Korea plans to beef up its surveillance system against North Korea”s electronic jamming signals, which targeted its civilian facilities in the past. The Ministry of Science, ICT & Future Planning plans to set up a GPS surveillance system which can track down the attack point and impact of GPS jamming attempts from its neighbour.

The ministry also plans to pass on the technology developed by the state-run Electronics and Telecomunications Research (ETRI) to a selected civilian firm to establish the surveillance system. The government aims to open the public tender in mid-April with the aim of setting up the system by November or December this year.
