The main objective of this research is to propose some directions concerning logistic development for the Republic of Korea Army (ROKA). In particular, it concerns modern concepts such as integrated logistics support (ILS) . Traditionally, Korean logistics has been treated as secondary. But, in the current situation, attention must be placed on logistics. This thesis introduces historical and geographical circumstances of the Korean peninsula and appraises military problems, especially logistics. It compares South and North Korea's military powers and then analyzes the relationship between EOK and US. It proceeds with setting the concept of modern military logistics and explaining some ILS aspects concretely. It gives insights to logistics in the system life cycle including approaches to the cost-side as well as to effectiveness. For the decision-maker, the lifecycle cost (LCC) model should be considered during the acquisition cycle to assure proper logistics development.
