UNCLASSIFIED1/ 14 S&T for Regional Security – Singapore’s Perspective RADM Harris Chan, Future Systems & Technology Architect Future Systems & Technology Directorate Ministry of Defence, Singapore
UNCLASSIFIED2/ 14 Our S&T Budget US$7B US$8B US$9B US$10B US$200M US$400M US$600M US$800M Defence Budget R&T Budget Our S&T budget is about US$380M (4%) of the defence budget. Our Population: 5.4 million (2013) Our GDP: US$295.2B (2013)
UNCLASSIFIED3/ 14 Key Interest Areas for S&T Guidance & Control -Localisation in GPS-deprived Envr -Advanced Navigation Protective Systems - Electric Armour Machine Intelligence - Mission Execution in Unregulated Terrain Power & Energy -Portable Fuel Cell -Graphene for Energy Storage Chem-Bio Defence Autonomous Underwater Tech -Toxin Detection and Diagnosis -Microbial Forensics -Towed Side Scan Sonar - Long-Endurance Sonar Buoys
UNCLASSIFIED4/ 14 Collaboration with Foreign Partners USA Sweden France Australia UK Germany India AFRL DRDO USMC
UNCLASSIFIED5/ 14 Our Principles for Foreign S&T Collaboration Collaboration should be mutually beneficial Collaboration should be balanced, e.g. co-funding, exchange of information/data/technology Singapore provides USV for trials. France provides towed side scan sonar and expendable mine disposal system for trials.
UNCLASSIFIED6/ 14 Our Domestic Challenges Evolving Socio-Economic Attitudes of Singaporeans SAF will need to be prepared for a leaner force and leverage on technologies that can deliver force-multiplying effects. Due to our falling birth rate, and tighter immigration policy, our pool for conscript will by 20% in the next 15 years. Shrinking Pool available for Conscript - Our people are calling for more government support on social needs. - There may also be greater public scrutiny on defence spending. 25,000 20,000 15,000 10, %
UNCLASSIFIED7/ 14 Technology Enablers to Support SAF 2030 Big Data Analytics Predictive Analysis Natural Language Processing Uncover hidden patterns and correlations Machine Learning Unmanned Convoy Robotics Swarming UAVs UGVs AUV
UNCLASSIFIED8/ 14 Singapore’s Maritime Security Command Post Command Post Maritime Security Task Force to ensure Singapore's maritime security. Cognitive Tasks Analysis Machine Assisted Ops Planning, Control & Monitoring Seamless Integrating of Ops Workflow Big Data Analytics 60% in Manning in effectiveness of Early Warning and Actionable Intelligence 4 x in coverage Anomaly Detection
UNCLASSIFIED9/ 14 Proposed Regional HADR Coord Centre (RHCC) At the Control Centre On the field RHCC provides a platform to facilitate fast and coordinated military response to regional natural disasters. Response Coordination Response Coordination Consequence Management Impact Assessment Comprehensive Awareness
UNCLASSIFIED10/ 14 RHCC’s Capabilities enabled by Technology Real-time Collaboration Analytics Tools Shared Situation Awareness Terrain Mapping Resources Planning Casualty Management Route Planning Language and Speech Translation Sentiment Analysis Cognitive Inference of Resources Prioritization Crowd Sourcing , Chat and Social Media Augmented Reality Mobile Apps Enabled Site Assessment
UNCLASSIFIED11/ 14 Greater use of Robotics for Security Ops and HADR in the future Land Search Operations Casualty Evacuation Stabilisation Patrol Aid Delivery Underwater Search Operations
UNCLASSIFIED12/ 14 Singapore - Building a Smart Nation 3D mapping using drones Computer models to detect disease Driverless cars Satellite-based Electronic Road Pricing Auto-tracking of Security forces and fast response CCTV feeds with data analytics to improve public transport Modeling & Simulation for Town Planning Buoys with sensors to test waters for pollutants Wireless sensors to detect water quality & leaks Singapore will need to step up its efforts in defending the nation against cyber attacks, which extend beyond borders and threaten daily life of ever more connected global citizens.
