ADEX: Northrop Grumman, KAI, and stunning F-22s

The biennial Seoul International Aerospace and Defense Exhibition (commonly shortened to ADEX) has begun at the Air Force base in Seongnam, and there is a lot to be excited about.

For example, visitors to the show can expect to be treated to interesting product displays at Northrop Grumman, which aims for a big presence on the South Korean national security sector.

As tensions with North Korea continue unabated, the evolution of South Korean national security needs is bound to be both an urgent and a lucrative business. Where politics is slow – and the normalisation of South Korea/North Korea relations seems that it will take forever at this point – business moves quickly to fill the gap.

Naturally, flight displays at Seongnam are set to be the talk of the town. Visitors have already been treated to stunning displays by F-22 Raptor aircraft, and can expect much more.

Meanwhile, Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) will have an unrivaled presence at the exhibition. So far, KAI is South Korea’s only aircraft provider.
