Hanwha has organized a task force, called “Space Hub,” which will orchestrate research, development and investments across a wide spectrum of business areas. These efforts will play a pivotal role in helping Hanwha take the industry to new heights as a global leader in space.

Hanwha has been involved in the space industry since 1994, when it contributed to the development of mono-propellant thrusters for the Korea Multi-Purpose Satellite-1. Since then, Hanwha’s various aerospace businesses have made crucial contributions to Korea’s journey into space.

Hanwha Aerospace has participated in the development of liquid engines for the Korea Space Launch Vehicle (KSLV-II) series. The upcoming launch of Korea’s first fully indigenous carrier rocket, also known as Nuri, will be a landmark moment for the Korean aerospace industry.

Liquid-fuel rocket engines allow rockets to accurately position themselves, through repeated ignition and combustion, to reach a desired orbit. Controlling a rocket’s thrust after launch is vitally important, and an engine like Nuri’s makes it easy to do so. Designing and refueling a liquid fuel rocket engine is more complex than doing so with solid fuel.

Hanwha Corporation has been involved in a variety of Korean government-led space programs. The company was involved in the development of a kick motor and thrust vector control (TVC) system for KSLV-I, Korea’s first space launch vehicle. Going forward, the company has set its sights on manufacturing rockets for launching satellites.

Beyond providing the thrust to break through the Earth’s gravitational pull, Hanwha is also taking steps to engage in satellite businesses. For instance, in 2021, Hanwha Aerospace acquired a 30 percent stake in Satrec Initiative (SI), a company that develops high-performance small/medium satellite systems for Earth observation (EO) missions and has contributed to the success of over 30 international and domestic space programs over the past 30 years.

Through this acquisition, Hanwha Aerospace has vertically integrated business areas related to EO. Hanwha Aerospace will launch EO satellites manufactured by SI, which will also provide ground stations for monitoring and controlling satellites. SI’s subsidiaries, SI Imaging Services and SI Analytics, focus on providing satellite-based services, such as satellite imagery distribution, as well as artificial intelligence (AI)-based geospatial analytics services.
