A study of an effective offsets model for Korea
MetadataShow full item record
One way of acquiring defense science technology is through offsets. When one country buys a weapon system from another country, it acquires critical technology and defense supplies as a return service. Korea has been using offsets since 1983 to develop a defense industry and to improve its defense science technology. Since the establishment of the Korean Defense Acquisition Program Administration (KDAPA), Korea has been trying to improve its policies regarding offsets and its system of offsets. This project conducts research and suggests a new Korean offsets model to improve Koreas defense science technology and promote Koreas defense industry. By thoroughly analyzing the current system, this project will improve the offsets process by reordering priorities and streamlining procedures.
