South Korea develops 'Super Combat Robot'

South Korea has developed what's being called a super gun. The automated, turret-based, weapon-platform, can lock onto a human target three kilometers away.

The weapon, called the Super aEgis 2, is seen, primarily as an enhancement to the country's security capability, but is also being sold abroad.

The automated turret system can support a variety of weapons from a standard machine-gun to a surface-to-air missile. Its video capability can identify and lock onto a human-sized target from a distance of 2.2 kilometers at night and 3 kilometers during daylight.

Its creator, South Korean electronics and weapons manufacturer DoDaam Systems, calls its combat robot a "Total Security Solution".

Park Sung-Ho, Vice President, Dodaam Systems, said, "Intelligent detecting and tracking algorithms are applied to the gun. It is a software detecting and tracking object with artificial intelligence function we've developed."

Super aEgis 2 detects objects with its low-light camera, and a thermal imaging camera detects intruders.

The super gun is remotely controlled and can be installed on any type of vehicle or platform. It's expected to perform as part of South Korea's military arsenal for about 650-thousand troops.

There has been no confirmation if the weapon is deployed along the border with North Korea, where the sixty-year old Armistice Agreement specifies limits for weapons deployment.
