Seoul, Nov 28, 2020, SPA -- S. Korea plans to develop a "big data" collection and analysis system to more efficiently take advantage of diverse and scattered data so as to make better policy for military operations and troops, Yonhap cited the defense ministry in Seoul as reporting.

Currently, the military has vast amounts of data on more than 1.4 million items related to the management of troops, arms procurement and other defense supplies field, and there has been a growing need for a platform to better manage them using advanced technologies, according to officials.

The ministry will kick off a yearlong preliminary research this year to explore analysis tools and seek ways to address potential security issues, and plans to establish the system by 2025, the officials added.

"The envisioned big data collection and analysis system is expected to allow us to optimize our resources and better predict future needs," said ministry official Lee Bok-gyun, who is in charge of the project.
