Seoul, Tokyo to connect radar systems to better track North Korean missiles

Two sides will link systems via US military in line with efforts to bolster trilateral security cooperation, source says

South Korea and Japan will connect their radar systems through the U.S. military to enhance their ability to track and share information about North Korean missiles, NK News confirmed on Tuesday.

A Japanese official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told NK News that the two countries will link their missile detection systems via the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM) to fill gaps in detection and analysis capabilities under the agreement, in line with their recent efforts to bolster trilateral security cooperation and intelligence sharing.
