Karmel Technologies, Inc. Introduces Juliet Marine Systems' GHOST to South Korea

PORTSMOUTH, N.H.Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Karmel Technologies introduced the Juliet Marine, (JMS), GHOST vessel and technology to the Korean defense industry at the Hi-Tech Defense Industry Fair in Daejeon,South Korea December 1-4. GHOST received much interest from many defense engineers and officials in attendance and was featured on Korean national television. Also introduced was the Unmanned Surface Vessel variant of the technology, the GHOST Sentry, currently being designed by JMS. Shawn Kim, CEO of Karmel Technologies, Inc. states, "Karmel represents Juliet Marine Systems in the territory of South Korea, and I am very pleased that Karmel has successfully introduced Juliet Marine Systems' GHOST and its patented technology to our customers in South Korea. JMS' GHOST vessel and technology generated enthusiastic receptions from the Korean media, the general public, and most importantly, ADD (Agency for Defense Development) researchers."

Juliet Marine Systems Vice President of Research and Development, Joseph Curcio also gave a detailed briefing to Korea's Agency for Defense Development and was able to engage in discussions with members of the Flow Induced Noise Control Lab at the Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at Chungnam University, as pictured in the included photo.

GHOST and its enabling technologies have many applications in high performance marine underwater vehicles and surface craft. JMS is discussing technology licensing and collaboration in the assembly of GHOST boats. The worldwide market for new boat development programs is estimated by AMI International to be about $20 billionover the next 15 years. JMS is offering its patented technology to interested countries that are looking for high performance, highly stable, manned or unmanned platforms.

Sentry is a highly stable USV designed to perform patrol duty for strategic assets such as oil and gas wells, ports, and ships. It is also an ideal platform for information, surveillance, and reconnaissance, (ISR), missions. Sentry is the only fully stable small craft under 10 tons that has the capability to remain operational in sea states no other unmanned or manned vessel of similar size can tolerate.

The Sentry will carry a payload of defensive and offensive weapons for a variety of naval missions.  Gregory Sancoff, President and CEO of JMS, states, "Sentry is the only known platform that will be able to perform missions in high sea states. All unmanned surface boats being used today have the fatal flaw of losing situational awareness in rough seas. An unmanned boat on an escort mission loses situational awareness as the seas are elevated to 3 feet. Its elevated sensors cannot operate in rough sea state, and the unmanned vessel loses situational awareness, resulting in a re-acquire behavior that results in vehicle vulnerability as it is doing circles in the ocean. Using the SWATH hull design, JMS set out to develop technology that allows the small GHOST Sentry platform to perform like a very large ship, always providing the stability needed to deploy sensors and weapons, and therefore operable and effective in rough weather that keeps other vessels in port."

Admiral James R. Hogg, USN, (Ret), a member of the JMS Board of Directors, states, "GHOST technology leads the maritime industry in providing a high speed, low cost platform with the stability to operate in dangerous waters with relative impunity, while conducting a variety of warfighting missions through its modular weapons bay."

Juliet Marine Systems, Inc. will be exhibiting at booth 212 at the Surface Navy Association National Symposium inArlington, VAJanuary 12 - 14, 2016.

<앵커 멘트>

사람 대신 정찰을 하는 로봇과 악천후 속에서도 고속 운항할 수 있는 스텔스 함정 등 미래의 국방 기술을 볼 수 있는 전시회가 열려 국내외 관계자들의 눈길을 끌고 있습니다.

서영준 기자의 보도입니다.


탱크 모양의 로봇이 급경사 구간을 가뿐하게 오릅니다.

최장 1.5km 떨어진 곳에서도 무선 조종이 가능해 사람 대신 위험 지역을 정찰할 수 있습니다.

레이더를 피할 수 있는 스텔스 함정입니다.

선체의 높낮이를 조절해 높은 파고에도 운항할 수 있고 물과의 마찰도 최소화했습니다.

<인터뷰> 김태곤(개발업체 한국 영업 이사) : "이 추진체를 다 기포로 덮어버리는 겁니다. 그러면 물과의 마찰계수가 0이 되는 거죠. 그래서 마찰계수 없이 이동하기 때문에 굉장히 초고속으로 이동이 가능하고..."

대전에서 열리고 있는 첨단 국방산업 전시회에는 국내외 방위산업 시장 진출을 노리는 81개 업체가 참여했습니다.

리모콘을 이용해 카메라를 위아래로 움직일 수 있도록 편의성을 개선한 CCTV 등 아이디어 제품도 선보였습니다.

<인터뷰> 윤익희(대전시 산업정책과장) : "벤처기업이 국방 산업에 진출할 수 있도록 도와주고 그럼으로써 일자리를 창출해서 기업을 도와주는 데 큰 의의가 있다고 하겠습니다."

말레이시아 등 15개 나라에서 군 관계자와 바이어가 방문해 구매 상담에 나섰습니다.

<인터뷰> 라지프(말레이시아 육군 소장) : "말레이시아 육군 군수 책임자입니다. 새로운 개발품과 한국의 기술을 보러 왔습니다."

미래 지상전력 심포지엄과 전투발전 세미나도 함께 열리고 있는 이번 전시회는 내일(4일)까지 계속됩니다.
