KICT and the Republic of Korea Army jointly held a seminar on bullet- and explosion-proof technology in Daejeon on February 21.

Jointly organized by KICT and the Army headquarters, the seminar was attended by 80 experts in military protective structure from the private sector and the military. 

KICT signed a MOU with the Korean Army on exchanges and cooperation on protective design research in 2017. In December that year, a demonstration test was carried out where the Structural Protection and Anti-Blast Organization built a protective structure using the bullet- and explosion-resistant high-performance fiber-reinforced cement composite material it developed, and the Army attacked it using its heavy weapons. It turned out that the structure was more than twice as bulletproof as existing concrete protective structures.
