Cecil HaneyThe U.S. Defense Department and its South Korean counterpart have agreed to exchange intelligence data to protect both countries’ space assets, DoD News reported Friday.

DoD News reports the U.S. Strategic Command will provide South Korea’s air force with targeted space information in exchange for data on radio frequency and satellite position.

The memorandum was signed by Douglas Loverro, deputy defense assistant secretary for space policy, and Maj. Gen. Chang Kyeong Seok, policy planning director general at the South Korean defense ministry.

Space data-sharing accords are meant to help the U.S. and partner countries cooperate on launch support, maneuver plans, decommissioning activities, orbital monitoring and electromagnetic interference studies.

“These agreements ultimately protect our capabilities by enhancing spaceflight safety and preventing potentially catastrophic orbital collisions,” said Adm. Cecil Haney, STRATCOM commander, according to DoD News.
