Singapour va envoyer une frégate pour lutter contre la piraterie dans le golfe d’Aden



La marine de Singapour va envoyer une frégate furtive et un hélicoptère dans le golfe d’Aden pour participer à la lutte contre la piraterie. Cette opération aura lieu au 2è semestre 2012.



La mission — le 4è dans la région — fait parti de la décision de Singapour d’augmenter sa participation dans les opérations de maintien de la paix dans le point chaud de la piraterie.

Le ministre singapourien de la défense, Ng Eng Hen, a annoncé le projet mardi dernier, lors de l’examen du budget de son ministère par le Parlement.

Le G550-AEW singapourien accomplit le FOC
Hélas, nous avons priorisés autrement et optés pour VIP, VIP…

RSAF's G550-AEW aircraft achieves FOC



The Republic of Singapore Air Force's (RSAF) Gulfstream 550 Airborne Early Warning (G550-AEW) aircraft has achieved full operational capability (FOC) status.

During a ceremony held at Tengah Air Base to mark the achievement, Singapore Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said the FOC was achieved within six months after the delivery of the fourth G550-AEW to RSAF in October 2011.

"The G550-AEW together with the RSAF's fighter squadrons and ground-based Air Defence units, are a powerful network that represents a quantum jump in the SAF's ability to identify potential aerial threats early and respond decisively, in peace or in war," Ng Eng Hen added.

Air warfare officers and maintenance crew of RSAF's 111 Squadron have also been put through intensive training to familiarise themselves to operate and maintain the aircraft.

The G550-AEW aircraft provides detection range of more than 200 nautical miles, enabling RSAF to respond more effectively to aerial threats in various operational situations.

Modified to carry the Elta conformal AEW platform, the G550 upgrades include pod-housed electronic support measures equipment, satellite communications and line-of-sight datalinks.

The aircraft features dual S-band radar arrays at the front and rear as well as L-band sensors on the fuselage side, providing 360° coverage and offering a mission endurance of nine hours at an altitude of 41,000ft.

The first G550-AEW aircraft was received by the RSAF in February 2009, following which it placed orders for four additional upgraded aircraft.

Four AEW-configured aircraft, worth up to $1bn, will replace the aging Northrop Grumman built-E-2Cs that have been in service with the air force for more than 20 years.

Singapore – F-15SG Pilot Training

WASHINGTON, May 1, 2012 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress April 30 of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Singapore of a possible sale of follow-on support and services for Singapore’s Continental United States (CONUS) detachment PEACE CARVIN V (F-15SG) based at Mountain Home Air Force Base (AFB) for a five-year period. The estimated cost is $435 million.

The Government of Singapore has requested a possible sale of follow-on support and services for Singapore’s Continental United States (CONUS) detachment PEACE CARVIN V (F-15SG) based at Mountain Home Air Force Base (AFB) for a five-year period. MDE includes: 40 GBU-10 PAVEWAY II Laser Guided Bomb Units, 40 MXU-651/B Air Foil Groups, 84 GBU-12 PAVEWAY II Laser Guided Bomb Units, 84 MXU-650/Bs Air Foil Groups, 124 MAU-169L/Bs Guidance Control Units, and 3 P5 Combat Training System Pods. Also included: commercial vehicles, publications and technical documentation, tactics manuals and academic instruction, clothing and individual equipment, execution and support of CONUS exercise deployments, airlift and aerial refueling, support equipment, spare and repair parts, repair and return, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support. The estimated cost is $435 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been, and continues to be, an important force for economic progress in Southeast Asia.

Singapore needs this training and munitions to support its F-15 aircraft. This program will enable Singapore to develop mission-ready and experienced pilots to support its current and future F-15 aircraft inventory. The well-established pilot proficiency training program at Mountain Home Air Force Base will support professional interaction and enhance operational interoperability with U.S. forces.

The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

There is no prime contractor involved in this proposed sale. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government and contractor representatives to Singapore.

Republic of Singapore Air Force Introduces the Heron 1 UAV Into 119 Squadron


The Heron 1 UAV (right) will replace Singapore’s Searcher UAV (left) in service since 1994.

13:41 GMT, May 23, 2012 Singapore's Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen officiated at a ceremony to inaugurate the Heron 1 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) into the Republic of Singapore Air Force's (RSAF's) 119 Squadron (SQN) at Murai Camp this afternoon, marking a significant milestone in the development of the 3rd Generation Singapore Armed Forces' (SAF's) intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dr Ng pointed out that the SAF's vision for UAVs started as early as in the 70s, quoting Singapore's first Defence Minister Dr Goh Keng Swee's remarks, "For our kind of terrain, we must have Remotely Piloted Vehicles. We must see the enemy without being seen". In highlighting the importance of investing in advanced UAVs such as the Heron 1 UAV to continually improve the ISR capability of the 3rd Generation SAF, he added, "The UAVs have realised the vision of SAF's founding pioneers but only through continued investments to develop this capability." Dr Ng also recognised the efforts of the personnel from 119 SQN, "The advanced surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of the Heron 1 UAV are, however, only as effective as the people who operate and maintain them. I would like therefore to commend all of you, the men and women of 119 Squadron, who have worked tirelessly in the last year to ready the Heron 1 UAV systems to support the SAF's operations."

Featuring state-of-the-art avionics, detection capabilities and communication systems, as well as longer flight endurance and a fully automatic take-off and landing capability, the Heron 1 UAV will provide the SAF with better battlefield situational awareness and enhance mission effectiveness. The Heron 1 UAV will replace the Searcher-class UAV that has been in service since 1994.

Also present at the ceremony were Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Defence and National Development Dr Mohamad Maliki Bin Osman, Chief of Air Force Major-General Ng Chee Meng and senior officers from the SAF.

Republic of Singapore Navy Conducts Successful Missile Firing

The Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) conducted a live-firing of the Barak anti-missile missile in the South China Sea earlier today as part of the 18th annual Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) exercise which Singapore is conducting with the United States. The missile was fired by the upgraded RSN missile corvette RSS Victory against an air drone target simulating an attacking profile. The target was successfully destroyed.

Commanding Officer RSS Victory Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Eric Tan Wei Hong said that the exercise was professionally valuable to both the RSN and the United States Navy. "The CARAT exercise allows personnel from both navies to work and interact closely with each other and this has also deepened our friendship and mutual understanding", said LTC Tan. Commenting on the success of the missile firing, Weapon Systems (Control) Supervisor Military Expert 2 Jeyabal Sundaraju, who fired the Barak missile said, "the realism and tempo of the exercise has been a fruitful experience for me and my team onboard RSS Victory. Our training and preparation ensured that we were ready and we are glad that we have hit the target and achieved mission success."

The firing was witnessed by Chief of Navy Rear-Admiral Ng Chee Peng. Similar missile firings have been conducted in previous CARAT exercises. The exercise is presently ongoing and will conclude on 27 Jul 2012.

Vente en vue de sous-marins à Singapour

La France pourrait vendre prochainement quatre sous-marins Scorpène à Singapour.

Selon nos propres informations, les négociations vont débuter pour préparer la vente de quatre sous-marins Scorpène à la marine de la République de Singapour. Le fabricant français DCNS entame actuellement les discussions avec le ministère de la Défense pour organiser cette vente. Laquelle pourrait comprendre également des transferts de technologie et des transferts de fabrication. Le tout est de savoir dans quelle mesure la France souhaite vendre des technologies à Singapour de capacités égales ou inférieures à celles de la marine française (rayon de détection des sonars, par exemple). Lesdites décisions d’exportations devront être validées en Commission Interministérielle pour l’Etude des Exportations de Matériels de Guerre (CIEEMG).

« Rien n’est encore sûr, nous sommes en concurrence avec les allemands », nous indique une source au fait du dossier. « C’est un important contrat de deux milliards d’euros minimum, mais si cela se fait le contrat ne pourrait être même pas encore signé l’année prochaine ». Affaire à suivre donc…

Roll-out ceremony of RSAF M-346








ST AEROSPACE & ALENIA AERMACCHI ROLL-OUT FIRST M-346 FOR THE REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE AIR FORCE












Representing the RSAF is BG Wong Huat Sern, Chief of Staff, Air Staff.










Venegono Superiore (Varese), Italy 7 August 2012 – The first M-346 advanced trainer for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) was rolled out in a ceremony held at Alenia Aermacchi’s plant in Venegono Superiore, Italy.

In September 2010, ST Aerospace, as the prime contractor, teaming with Alenia Aermacchi
(a Finmeccanica company) and The Boeing Company, was awarded a contract to supply 12 M-346 aircraft and ground based training system for the RSAF’s Advanced Jet Trainer (AJT) programme.

The roll-out ceremony was attended by officials from the RSAF, key representatives from
ST Aerospace, The Boeing Company and Alenia Aermacchi, as well as staff representatives involved in the programme.

“We signed the contract less than two years ago and today we have rolled out the first of twelve
M-346 aircraft for the RSAF’s Advanced Jet Trainer programme. This is a particularly important moment for our company, a great team job has been achieved in strict collaboration with our industrial counterpart, ST Aerospace, and we are proud to celebrate together with them”.
~ Giuseppe GIORDO, Alenia Aermacchi’s CEO

“The successful rollout of the first M-346 illustrates the firm commitment by ST Aerospace and Alenia Aermacchi, in support of the RSAF’s next generation training needs. Together with our partners we will continue to marry the strengths of one another to deliver an outstanding solution to our customer.”
~ CHANG Cheow Teck, President, ST Aerospace

The rollout follows the obtaining of the type certificate and the first flight made by this aircraft in July 2012. The delivery of the first M-346 is scheduled for the end of 2012.

Background

The M-346 is the ideal platform for a latest-generation integrated training system. The versatility of the M-346 allows for its configuration as an affordable advanced combat aircraft. The innovative technical characteristics of the M-346 provide for a high degree of safety and low acquisition and operating costs. The M-346 has been designed using the latest “design-to-cost” and “design-to-maintain” concepts, with an avionics system modeled on those used in new-generation fighter aircraft, such as Eurofighter, Gripen, Rafale, F-22 and the F-35.

The M-346 received its Military Type Qualification Certificate from the Italian Ministry of Defence - National Armaments Directorate in June 2011, an essential requirement to certify the full correspondence to aircraft specifications and to international military requirements.

In September 2010, the Singapore Government signed the contract for 12 M-346 and ground-based training systems under the AJT replacement programme. This contract was signed with the consortium, formed by ST Aerospace (prime contractor), Alenia Aermacchi and Boeing. The first aircraft is scheduled for delivery this year. Alenia Aermacchi also finalised contracts in June 2011 with ST Aerospace to provide logistics support to the RSAF’s fleet of M-346.

SAF's 5 SIR soldiers participate in Exercise Wallaby
12 October 2012
Infantry soldiers from the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) have completed army training evaluation centre (ATEC) testing during Exercise Wallaby 2012, currently underway in Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA), Queensland, Australia.

A total of 700 troops from 5th Battalion Singapore Infantry Regiment (5 SIR) took part in the four day ATEC, which marked the motorised infantry battalions debut at Exercise Wallaby's 22nd event, an annual drill featuring the SAF's networked air-land capabilities.

During the exercise, soldiers used their new Terrex infantry carrier vehicle (ICV) to evaluate its mobility and system reliability, and also practised dismounted attacks, helicopter insertion and combat operations in a built-up area.


Exercise frame 1 commander and 3rd Singapore Infantry Brigade commander colonel Seet Uei Lim said ATEC would enhance the unit's overall operational readiness by validating troops' combat proficiency at individual and battalion levels.

"The vast training space allows the Terrex ICVs to manoeuvre long distances and conduct live-firing at the battalion level with various land and air platforms," Lim added. "This is something we're unable to do back home due to space limitation."

The battalion was scheduled to conclude training with an integrated live-firing drill, during which the Terrex ICV will be operated alongside other ground and air assets for the first time, such as Leopard 2SG main battle tanks (MBTs), Skyblade III mini-unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and AH-64D Apache attack helicopters.

Running from 22 September to 24 November, Exercise Wallaby is one of the biggest unilateral battalion training drills featuring more than 4,300 SAF personnel and 350 platforms

SAF concludes Exercise Daring Warrior 2012 in US
5 November 2012
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and US Army have taken part in Daring Warrior 2012, a high-mobility artillery rocket system (HIMARS) live-firing exercise at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

Some 340 personnel from SAF Artillery units and the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) participated alongside US personnel to maintain HIMARS operational capabilities, as well as conducting air-land integration training.

The exercise enables SAF to build its operational capabilities and readiness, in addition to enhancing the defence relationship between the two countries.

SAF's HIMARS and Apache AH-64D helicopters participated in the bilateral exercise alongside US F-16 and F-18 fighter aircraft, M109A6 Paladin self-propelled Howitzers, as well as ground liaison and targeting teams.

US personnel from the 214th Fires Brigade Headquarters, 1-14th, 2-4th and 2-5th Field Artillery, 168th Brigade Support Battalion, the US Marine Corps and US Air Force also participated in the bilateral exercise.

SAF's chief of artillery, colonel Terry Siow said Exercise Daring Warrior provided an opportunity for effective and realistic training, and also served as a channel for professional exchange between both militaries.

"Not only can we train with the HIMARS, we can achieve air-land integrated training with the Apache helicopters," Siow added.

Daring Warrior exercises held in 2010 and 2011 also included joint live-firing exercises between the militaries.

The HIMARS can engage targets 70km away, at a speed of 94km/h, and can shoot and scoot in under 20 seconds, ensuring survivability for crews and equipment.

Lockheed sees increased Singapore interest in F-35 fighter

* Singapore became security partner on F-35 in 2003
* New Pentagon F-35 program chief to take over Dec. 6

By Andrea Shalal-Esa
WASHINGTON, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Singapore is showing increased
interest in buying Lockheed Martin Corp's F-35 Joint
Strike Fighter, a top executive with the company said late on
Thursday, a week after China unveiled a second stealth fighter
called the J-31.
Lockheed is building three variants of the stealthy warplane
for the U.S. military and eight international partners --
Britain, Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Turkey and
the Netherlands, which are helping fund the plane's development.
Singapore became a security partner on the international
fighter program in February 2003, along with Israel, which has
already ordered an initial batch of the jets.
As security partners, Singapore and Israel both pledged to
contribute about $50 million to the F-35 development effort,
according to the globalsecurity.org website.
"Their (Singapore's) interest in the program is still quite
strong," Tom Burbage, general manager of the F-35 program, told
Reuters late on Thursday after a speech to the Royal
Aeronautical Society at the British embassy in Washington.
"Their activity has picked up a little bit and it makes us
think that they're going to become more active," Burbage said,
when asked about Singapore's plans to place F-35 orders.
Washington is actively encouraging more exports of weapons
systems such as the F-35 to strengthen ties with allies, and
offset a budget-driven decline in its own procurement programs.
President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta
are traveling to Asia this month for a variety of visits, and to
participate in the annual summit of the 10-country Association
of Southeast Asian Nations, or ASEAN, which includes Singapore.
Washington has sought to consolidate ties and reinforce U.S.
influence across Asia as part of a "pivot" toward the region as
the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down.

NO FORMAL DEAL YET
Burbage said Lockheed officials were engaged in a close
dialogue with Singapore about its interest in buying some of the
F-35 fighter jets, and often visited the Asian country.
But he said Singapore had not made any formal agreements to
buy the jets, or when such purchases could occur.
Defense consultant Loren Thompson said China's military
expansion was putting increasing pressure on Singapore and other
countries in the region to buy next-generation fighter planes.
"Every time China tests a new fighter it's a wake-up call
for countries like Singapore," Thompson said.
Chinese media last week published images of a second Chinese
stealth fighter jet after it made its maiden flight in the
northeast province of Liaoning. {ID:nL3E8M23LS]
Aviation experts said the plane bore a strong resemblance to
the F-35, fueling U.S. concerns about Chinese espionage efforts
that were underscored in a draft of the 2012 report to Congress
by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.
Singapore will also host the first U.S. littoral combat
ship, "Freedom," which was also built by Lockheed, for a
10-month deployment next year.
Singapore is strategically located along the Strait of
Malacca, the chief link between the Indian and Pacific Oceans
through which about 40 percent of world trade flows.
Burbage said the F-35 program was doing well and was 21
percent ahead of schedule with test flights for the year.
He said Air Force Major General Christopher Bogdan would
assume control of the Pentagon's F-35 program office on Dec. 6,
a date confirmed by the Pentagon. Bogdan will receive a third
star when he is promoted to lieutenant general the week before.
Bogdan, who will replace retiring Navy Vice Admiral David
Venlet as the program executive officer, is a "very fast
learner," Burbage told business executives at the embassy event.
Bogdan visited the Fort Worth, Texas plant where Lockheed
builds the F-35, in October, a month after he described ties
between Lockheed and the Pentagon as the "worst I've ever seen."
Burbage said Bogdan had a good visit to Fort Worth, and
Lockheed was looking forward to working with both him and Navy
acquisition chief Sean Stackely, who will oversee major
acquisition decisions on the F-35.
