A Look Inside
Main Description
North Lorea's ballistic missle program, the theater missile defense debate, and ongoing discussions concerning South Korea's next generation combat aircraft have combined to heighten awareness of the critical importance of aerospace power. To assess these and other related issues, the Air Power Program based at the Center for international Studies at Yonsei University in the Republic of Korea (ROK), together with Project Air Force at RAND and the Pacific Century Institute, co-organized the Second International Air Power Conference, held June 11-12, 1999, in Seoul.
