South Korea to feed US, Japan real-time intel on North

SEOUL -- South Korean and American forces will set up a communications link this year to share intelligence on North Korean ballistic missiles in real time, South Korean defense sources revealed Friday.

     The South plans to send information pertaining to the North's nuclear and missile threats through the Link-16 data network to be installed by year-end. Since the U.S. already uses the system to communicate with Aegis-equipped destroyers of the Japan Self-Defense Forces, the new South Korean link will allow all three countries to communicate through the U.S. in real time.
