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.

Singapore orders two additional S-70B helicoptersSingapore has signed a contract for two additional Sikorsky S-70B seaborne helicopters, with the rotocraft due for delivery in 2016.
The new aircraft will have a "different weapons kit" to the Republic of Singapore Navy's existing fleet of six S-70Bs, says an industry source, who declines to provide exact details about how they will be equipped.
Singapore's existing S-70Bs, which were inaugurated into service in January 2011, are optimised for anti-submarine warfare duties, with an L-3 long-range active sonar and torpedoes.

Singapore defence ministry
According to Sikorsky's website, the S-70B can be configured for several other missions, including anti-surface warfare (ASuW), search and rescue, medical evacuation and vertical replenishment.
In the ASuW role, the type can be armed with up to eight Lockheed Martin AGM-114 Hellfire air-to-surface missiles, as well as machine guns and cannons.
Although Singapore's S-70Bs operate from the nation's six Formidable-class frigates, they are flown and maintained by air force personnel.

Singapore Develops Smart Fence for Perimeter Protection
Mar. 7, 2013 - 08:22PM
TAIPEI — Singapore Technologies Electronics (ST Electronics) has solved major problems with sensor-based perimeter security fencing.

ST Engineering has developed a cost-effective, fiber-optic, sensor-based perimeter security solution known as the AgilFence Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS), said Tang Kum Chuen, president, ST Electronics, Communications & Sensor Systems Group. It can secure borders, military facilities and high-asset commercial properties.

The Singapore security environment offers many comparisons to problems other countries face today.

“When it comes to border security, terrorism is seen as the main threat, though of course the authorities are keen to prevent illegal immigrants coming over,” said Ian Storey, fellow, Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore.

Post-9/11 Singapore hardened its security infrastructure following the discovery of a Jemaah Islamiyah cell, which had targeted Western interests, including U.S. military personnel, Storey said. In general, because of its close links to the West, and the large concentration of Western interests in the country, Singapore sees itself as an attractive target for international terrorist groups.

While optical fiber is widely used in fence intrusion detection systems, the AgilFence PIDS is unique as it uses a series of tiny mirror-like sensors known as fiber bragg grating (FBG). Each of these permits a specific wavelength of light to be reflected when white light is transmitted along the optical fiber cable. The reflection sequence is predetermined and no alarm will be triggered as long as this steady state is maintained.

In the past, FBG sensor cables were costly to produce and the complexity of managing data from a large array of sensors deterred many companies from applying this technology.

“ST Electronics has mastered the relevant technologies,” Tang said.

The result is an affordable option. Large areas such as military facilities and air and naval bases will “enjoy substantial cost savings as fewer cameras are needed when long-range PTZ cameras are used, thereby reducing hardware, civil work, infrastructure as well as maintenance costs,” Tang said. AgilFence PIDS requires no power for the cable in the field resulting in significant cost reduction.

Singapore is well known for asset protection, said a U.S. defense industry source based in Singapore. Singapore has not forgotten the efforts by Indonesia during the Indonesian-Malaysian crisis from 1962 to 1966, he said, when the Indonesian strongman, Sukarno, waged a covert war against creation of the state of Malaysia. Indonesian commandos infiltrated Singapore on sabotage missions that resulted in numerous bombings, including the famous MacDonald House bombing in 1965.

There have been recent concerns over terrorism, he said. In 2002, a Singapore citizen, Mas Selamat bin Kastari, a member of the Jemaah Islamiyah terrorist group, plotted to bomb the Changi Airport. He was arrested and later escaped to Malaysia in 2008, where he was captured and returned to Singapore in 2010.

Today, AgilFence protects Changi Airport along with nine other sites around Singapore. Alan Tan, vice president of Changi Airport Group’s Aviation Security, says that Changi Airport “always aims to find the best tools that will allow us to ensure the highest safety standards at Changi Airport.”

Changi Airport’s perimeter protection plan boasts a double-layered fence with anti-tunneling protection that surrounds the perimeter of the airport. This is now further enhanced with AgilFence and an optimal number of low-light pan–tilt–zoom cameras placed strategically along the fence, Tan said.

It is suited especially for users looking for an intrinsically safe system with cut immunity, Tang said. Neither a single nor multiple cable cuts will cripple the entire protection system. “It is resilient to defeat,” he said.

SAF eyeing new fighter jets and submarines


SINGAPORE - Plans to enhance the fighting capabilities of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and tighten training safety were spelt out by the Ministry of Defence (Mindef) in the Budget debate yesterday.

Here are some key highlights.

New defence machines

Mindef is in the "final stages" of evaluating the still-in-development F-35 jet to "modernise" the Republic of Singapore Air Force's fighter fleet, said Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen.

He said the jet has "the potential to be the most advanced multi-role fighter aircraft for decades to come".

Mindef is also looking to replace its ageing Challenger-class submarines, which were built in the 1960s.
Keeping NS strong

A Committee to Strengthen National Service will be convened and chaired by Dr Ng.

It has one working group to look into maximising the abilities of national servicemen (NSmen) for the SAF and how they can fulfil their duties, while another working group will look into the recognition of NSmen and benefits for them.

Citing Finland - whose NSmen indicate how they want to serve, such as choosing vocations and opting to become officers - Dr Ng said Mindef should study how it can provide "more springboards" for NSmen here to maximise their potential and talents.

Full-time safety officers

The first batch of full-time safety officers has been trained and deployed to army units.

The officers will report directly to unit commanders and ensure better compliance with training-safety regulations.

New safety directorate

A Safety and Systems Review Directorate will be set up and will report directly to the Permanent Secretary of Defence and the Chief of Defence Force.

Its first external review panel will focus on training safety, and will include experts and professionals from outside the SAF.

Deployment of family doctors

To better manage more complex medical conditions, family doctors will be stationed in selected SAF medical centres.

They will provide clinical mentorship to younger full-time NS doctors.

Medical centres with a high trainee and patient load will be considered for this scheme.

Singapore Poised To Announce Purchase Of 12 F-35Bs

WASHINGTON: Singapore is expected to announce sometime in the next 10 days that it plans to buy its first squadron --12 planes -- of some 75 of Lockheed Martin's F-35Bs, further bolstering what had been the flagging fortunes of the world's most expensive conventional weapon system.

The fact that American allies in the Pacific are the ones committing to the controversial and over-budget aircraft is telling. If you want to understand the calculus driving these choices, first look at China, which to countries such as Singapore, Japan, South Korea and Australia is the primary long-term threat.

The Singaporeans are extremely shy about declaring their intentions in public, eager to offer few chances for China and Malaysia to react, but two sources familiar with the program confirmed the likely announcement. Given Singapore's tiny size its choice of which of the three F-35 versions to buy is not surprising. A plane that can take off almost vertically and can land vertically is able to operate from a much smaller footprint than, say the F-35A (the Air Force version) or F-16 Block 60s. And, given Singapore's geography, the F-35B makes great sense for its ability to operate closely with the US Marines -- as well as with F-35Cs operating from our aircraft carriers.

The Singaporeans decision will eventually leave China -- and Russia, still something of a Pacific power -- facing 50 to 100 Australian F-35As, 42 F-35As in Japan, 75Bs in Singapore and however many of the three versions built and fielded by the Untied States are regularly in the Pacific. Then consider the F-35, which offers the first true integrated global supply chain for a major weapon system and offers highly classified capabilities which America had previously not made available to allies.

But the underlying reason for the choice of Singapore and the other Pacific countries may be found in the conclusion of these countries about the F-35's effectiveness. One senior official from the region, who has access to the most sensitive classified information about the system, told me recently that the F-35 is "simply undefeatable." And this official said the aircraft is expected to maintain its dominance for at least one quarter of a century.

If you link the F-35s from Singapore, Japan and Australia with the US planes that will be stationed throughout the Pacific at Air Force bases, on aircraft carriers and on the Gator navy's ships, then the US and allied presence will loom large in an arc from Alaska west and south to the bottom of the South China Sea and then back down to Australia and across to Hawaii. Strengthening this highly capable net will be the new F-35 plant Japan is expected to announce soon. Mistubishi Heavy Industries is expected to construct a plant to build Japan's F-35s. It would eventually provide the US and its Pacific allies with a central repair and replacement plant in the region, one in addition to any repair centers the US builds in the region.

Add the regular port visits to Singapore by the Littoral Combat Ship fleet to the F-35 decision and you've got a pretty powerful national security statement by the tiny state.

Singapore – AIM-120C7 AMRAAM and Related Support

WASHINGTON, April 4, 2013 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress April 3 of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of the Republic of Singapore for 100 AIM-120C7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $210 million.

The Government of Singapore has requested a possible sale of 100 AIM-120C7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM), AMRAAM Programmable Advanced System Interface Simulator (PASIS), 10 AMRAAM Spare Guidance Sections, 18 AN/AVS-9(V) Night Vision Goggles, H-764G with GEM V Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM), Common Munitions Built-in-Test Reprogramming Equipment (CMBRE-Plus) in support of a Direct Commercial Sale of new F-15SG aircraft. Also included: containers, spare and repair parts, support equipment, tools and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, logistics, and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $210 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by increasing the ability of the Republic of Singapore to contribute to regional security. Its contributions to counter-piracy and counterterrorism efforts continue to stabilize a critical chokepoint where much of the world’s goods and services transit en route to and from the Asia Pacific region. The proposed sale will improve the security of a strategic partner which has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Asia Pacific region. Specifically, this proposed sale will improve the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF) air to air capability and ability to defend its nation and cooperate with allied air forces
The Republic of Singapore requires these missiles to meet current and future threats of enemy aircraft. Singapore is procuring, via Direct Commercial Sale, new F-15SG aircraft. The proposed sale will enhance RSAF’s ability to operate with coalition forces in bilateral and multilateral exercises and potential air defense operations. Singapore will use these capabilities as a deterrent to regional threats and to strengthen its homeland defense.

Singapore will have no difficulty absorbing the AIM-120C7s into its armed forces.

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

The prime contractors will be Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, Arizona; Honeywell Aerospace in Phoenix, Arizona; ITT Night Vision in Roanoke,

Virginia; and ATK Defense Electronic Systems in Clearwater, Florida. 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 or contractor representatives to Singapore.
