On October 4 (Fri) at its Ilsan Headquarters, the KICT (President Seung Heon Han) signed a comprehensive MOU for “joint research on a system of broadcasting communications-based position calibration signals” with Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC, CEO Seung Ho Choi).

The MOU will enable the KICT and MBC to jointly develop a ”system of Korean-type position calibration signals” and apply the system to smart construction projects. The system will be established by applying MBC’s broadcasting infrastructure, such as its terrestrial DMB network, to smart construction technologies developed by the KICT. 

Under the MOU, the KICT and MBC will organize a working-level committee and carry out detailed cooperation activities. The two agencies will also discuss the development of technology for the “system of Korean-type position calibration signals,” which will be applied to smart construction, as well as related consulting and on-site operation of the system. They will also analyze the effects of the technology on construction productivity.
