South Korea has developed a weapon, known as Super aEgis 2, which is expected to perform as part of South Korea's military arsenal for about 650,000 troops.

Super aEgis 2 is an automated, turret-based, weapon-platform that can detect objects with its low-light camera and a thermal imaging camera with the ability to lock onto a target 3km away.

The automated turret system, manufactured by DoDaam Systems, can support a variety of weapons from a standard machine gun to a surface-to-air missile.

The confirmation regarding the deployment of the weapon along the border with North Korea is still not known, where the 60-year-old Armistice Agreement specifies limits for weapons deployment.
