LIG Nex1 of South Korea and Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at the Paris Air Show to explore possibilities to work together in future business opportunities. The scope of this MoU contains civil and military operations, products and services.

LIG Nex1 is a leading defence company in South Korea and develops and produces state-of-the-art weapon systems. A possible future cooperation of LIG Nex1 and NLR will combine the unique aerospace and defence expertise of both organizations.

LIG Nex1 and NLR have also signed a contract to provide an embedded training capability for fighter aircraft. The experts of NLR will further build on their heritage in developing embedded training systems for various fighter aircraft platforms. Their embedded training system for fighter aircraft is a highly innovative and cost effective system for tactical training of fighter pilots and delivers at the same time an on-board provision for Live Virtual Constructive solutions. The system is integrated with the operational systems of a fighter jet, enabling flexible scenarios for real-world exercises. Fighter pilots are able to train individually (single ship ET) or as a member of a team exercising a combat action in the multi-ship configuration.
