Abstract: The dazzling leap of military technology is changing the paradigm of war. The development of advanced information and communication technology (ICT) is creating a network-centric operational environment (NCOE). And securing robotic technology in a wide range of fields enables the operation of unmanned combat systems, transforming the concept of war execution before the future. In the future, the use of unmanned combat systems is expected to surge in the future, considering the importance of human life, overcoming the physiological limitations of human beings, reducing the troop force, and increasing the speed of mission resolution. As a result, our defense future technology needs an innovative leap forward based on an intelligent hyperlinked network that overcomes time and space. In other words, all com-bat assets should be able to embed communication functions and implement intelligent communication technologies and services for mutual communication. The importance of ICT-based networking for unmanned combat systems is already well known in the military operations of the US Predator UAV in Afghanistan (2001) and Iraq (2003). At that time, Predator photographed the enemy’s dynamics with the mounted surveillance camera and broadcasted it simultaneously to the US mainland’s command center on the opposite side of the globe through the WGS (Wideband Global SATCOM system) satellite in the United States. Thus, network systems must be advanced together to ensure the integrity of military operations of unmanned combat systems. It is essential that the introduction of optimal network construction technology for control and information transmission of unmanned combat system should be fused with various advanced ICT such as AI, IoT communication, mobile communication, data link, satellite communication and so on. Therefore, this study proposes the future technology structure and development direction for the network system of the army drone battle system.
