US, Singapore navies hone ASW interoperability in 'CARAT' exercise

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Navy International
29 July 2016



Key Points
The US and Singapore navies have successfully concluded a complex anti-submarine warfare exercise
Exercise has significantly bolstered interoperability between the two services
The US Navy (USN) and the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) have completed a series of exercises, including a complex anti-submarine warfare (ASW) drill that aim to further boost interoperability between the two navies.

These were conducted as part of the Singapore phase of the 'Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training' ('CARAT') series of bilateral naval exercises between the USN and the armed forces of nine partner countries in south and Southeast Asia.

The Singapore leg of 'CARAT' 2016 was conducted over a period of two weeks from 19 July and involved at-sea phases in international waters of the South China Sea. Participating USN assets included a P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and the Arleigh Buke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Stethem (DDG 63) and USS Spruance (DDG 111).

For the first time in the series, a ship anti-submarine warfare readiness/effectiveness measuring (SHAREM) exercise was included, said the USN.

"SHAREM measures how well surface ships and aircraft can detect and track submarines and provides the two navies the opportunity to share tactics and develop procedures for future joint operations", said the service in a statement issued on 'CARAT' 2016.

During a demonstration flight of the P-8A attended by IHS Jane's on 27 July over the Malacca Strait, crew members of the aircraft elaborated further on what the SHAREM entails.

"A part of it includes a component where signals from sonobuoys dropped by the P-8A are transmitted and interpreted by Singapore naval ships", said Lieutenant Morgan Williams from the US Navy's Patrol Squadron Five (VP-5), who is a tactical co-ordinator on board the demonstration flight.

"These signals are transmitted over the Link 11 serial data link system [in use by navies of the two countries] and include acoustic signatures that will help in the identification and location of submarines", she added.

F-35 Joint Strike Fighter: Singapore's next-gen fighter?

Kelvin Wong, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
02 August 2016




While Singapore continues to remain tight lipped about its next-generation combat aircraft programme it is widely believed that an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter buy is a matter of not if, but when for the Southeast Asian country. Kelvin Wong reports on the latest perspectives from the Singapore government and Lockheed Martin
With a stated interest of acquiring the next-generation of combat aircraft for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) by 2030, the Southeast Asian island state of Singapore is widely expected by analysts and defence watchers to be an eventual customer for Lockheed Martin's fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).

The densely populated island is only 719.1 km² in size, with limited manpower resources for defence and no strategic depth to manoeuvre in the advent of conflict. Cognisant of the growing spectrum of operations that the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) must undertake in an increasingly uncertain security environment vis-à-vis its own resource constraints, the country embarked on a third-generation (3G) SAF transformation in 2004 under which it is moulding its three services into an advanced, networked force. Underpinning this effort is the integrated knowledge-based command and control (IKC2) concept, where networked forces are augmented with decision support systems that enable commanders and personnel to exploit information more quickly and effectively.

For the RSAF this ongoing effort has resulted in the introduction of improved C4ISR platforms such as four Gulfstream G550 airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft - which replaced the service's Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeyes - and the IAI Heron 1 medium-altitude long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (MALE UAV) to support ISR and target acquisition operations.

Singapore also operates some of the most advanced fourth-generation combat aircraft in the world. The bulk of its fleet comprises 20 Lockheed Martin F-16C and 40 F-16D Block 52/52+ multirole combat aircraft acquired in the 1990s and believed to be optimised with Israeli-built electronic countermeasures (ECM) systems, with the D variants optimised for the electronic warfare (EW) role.

Singapore Puts Off Decision on Whether to Buy Lockheed’s F-35 (excerpt)
(Source: Bloomberg Business; published Aug 09, 2016)


By Anthony Capaccio
Singapore has put on hold a decision to buy as many as 12 of Lockheed Martin Corp.’s F-35 jets, according to information from the Pentagon’s program office.

The island nation’s permanent secretary of defense development informed the U.S. in mid-June that it was delaying final steps toward purchasing four of the fighters by about 2022, with an option to buy eight more, according to the information presented to Pentagon officials last month as part of their regular reviews of the costliest weapons program.

While Singapore gave no indication of when it might revive efforts to buy the F-35, the U.S. continues to encourage the Asian city-state to buy the fighter. “We welcome Singapore’s interest in purchasing the F-35 aircraft,” President Barack Obama said in opening remarks at a White House press conference last week with Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

In December 2014, Singapore submitted a “letter of request” to the U.S. formally seeking information on purchasing the F-35, and it followed up in early 2015 by indicating it wanted the most complex model, the F-35B. Intended for short takeoffs and vertical landings on unimproved airstrips, the F-35B was designed for use by the U.S. Marine Corps and has already been ordered by the U.K. and Italy.

Data Link, Radio

The U.S. made a policy decision earlier this year allowing Singapore to integrate a data link and radio that it developed into its jets if purchased, according to the Pentagon’s F-35 program office. (end of excerpt)

Singapore, France could receive first Airbus MRTT in 2017
Dzirhan Mahadzir, Kuala Lumpur and Kelvin Wong, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
12 August 2016
Airbus Defence and Space (DS) expects that the next new Airbus A330-200 Multirole Tanker Transport (MRTT) will be delivered to either the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) or the French Air Force.

"The next [MRTT] is either [for] Singapore or France," Fernando Alonso, Head of Military Aircraft at Airbus DS, told reporters in Kuala Lumpur in early August.

"Australia has bought two additional ones. Those are something quite special as they are second-hand ones," he added, referring to the two former Qantas-operated A330 airliners that are being converted into MRTT platforms by Airbus DS. However, he did not provide exact time frames for the deliveries.

18 nations participate in ASEAN Exercise 16-3
Read news from Defence Blog at Flipboard.com | Subscribe to the newsletter from Defence Blog





Areas of the world riddled with natural disasters and cursed by the secondary effects of mother nature’s wrath demand a responsive force that thinks, trains and plans ahead.

An exercise bringing together those very forces from 18 nations’ military and government organizations kicked off Sept. 5, 2016 at 14th Military Circle, Chonburi Province, Thailand. ASEAN Exercise 16-3 commenced with a fitting demonstration of an earthquake-induced collapsed building Search and Rescue operation.

Helicopters from Japan, Russia, Singapore and Thailand roared toward the airfield, dispatching fast-rope rescue teams and airlifting casualties. Meanwhile, teams on the ground moved casualties from the “hot zone,” a simulated collapsing building, to the “warm zone,” the immediate safety of an open field, and triaged according to casualty condition.

Teams from the Indian Army, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force and Royal Thai Army moved casualties secured on backboards swiftly to the pickup zone or field hospital. It was a grand display of pre-planned, coordinated and rehearsed disaster response, reinforcing the pay-off of the very familiarity and training this exercise will focus on.

“This exercise is intended to foster cooperation and to share experience, information and skills among military medics of the ASEAN member states and plus countries, while fostering capabilities of military units in the region through joint humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations,” said General Prawit Wongsuwon, Kingdom of Thailand Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, during the opening ceremony.

AEx 16-3 is an opportunity for different nations to apply and hone common standard operating procedures and diversify each other’s capabilities for the inevitable calamities of the volatile Indo-Asia-Pacific.

A U.S. contingent of approximately 25 personnel from U.S. Pacific Command; U.S. Army Pacific; U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific and Pacific Air Forces will work alongside the other nations in both the command post and field training exercises conducting medical planning, air medical evacuation, military medicine and chemical/ biological/ radiological/ nuclear defense.

Approximately 2,000 personnel are participating in the exercise from the 10 ASEAN member states Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam and “plus” countries Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.

“This is considered an important milestone of defense cooperation,” Wongsuwon lauded the ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting Plus program, which, “which helps maintain peace, stability and security in the region.”

Humbling reminders of the significance of combined joint disaster response training come in the form of approximately 100 natural disasters on average each year in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. Sharing and honing real-world, on the ground, tactical and operational response capabilities facilitates effective, efficient response in a merciless environment.

Earlier today, the SAF and Australian Defence Force (ADF) conducted the amphibious phase of Exercise Trident at Shoalwater Bay Training Area in Queensland, Australia. Soldiers from 1st Battalion, Singapore Guards and their ADF counterparts conducted a battalion-level amphibious operation to secure the beach front. Close air support was provided by the The Republic of Singapore Air Force's AH-64D Apache attack helicopter, while the ship-to-shore transfer of troops was conducted by the Republic of Singapore Navy's Fast Craft Equipment Personnel.

This signature bilateral joint military exercise provides many opportunities for both armed forces to enhance their professionalism and interoperability as well as strengthen people-to-people ties. Chief of Staff-Joint Staff Brigadier-General Chia Choon Hoong, who observed the exercise, emphasised the significance of the exercise. He said, "Exercise Trident demonstrates how the 3rd Generation SAF fights as a networked and integrated force, together with our key partner, the ADF. It also provides us with great opportunities to exercise a wide spectrum of our operational concepts and capabilities."

MINDEF Signs Contracts to Acquire New Medium- and Heavy-Lift Helicopters
(Source: Singapore Ministry of Defence; issued Nov 07, 2016)
The Singapore Ministry of Defence has awarded a contract to Airbus Helicopters for the acquisition of the H225M - Medium Lift Helicopter and a contract to The Boeing Company for the acquisition of CH-47F - Heavy Lift Helicopter.

The new H225M and CH-47F will replace the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)'s existing Super Pumas and older Chinooks, which have been in service since 1983 and 1994 respectively, and are facing obsolescence.

The H225M and CH-47F possess better lift and reach capabilities, and will enable the RSAF to meet the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF)'s lift requirements more efficiently with fewer helicopters and less manpower.

The acquisition of the H225M and CH-47F will ensure that the RSAF continues to effectively meet the SAF's lift requirements for a wide spectrum of operations, including Search and Rescue (SAR), Aeromedical Evacuation (AME) and Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) operations.

The replacement aircraft were selected after a rigorous evaluation process.


(EDITOR’S NOTE: Given that Singapore currently operates 46 Aérospatiale Super Pumas and 24 Boeing Chinooks, it is plausible that the new contracts cover a similar number of replacement aircraft.
The above communiqué also makes no mention of prices, but Poland was to pay about $3.5 billion for the 50 H225M Caracals it was going to buy, so Singapore will probably pay a similar amount, or less if it foregoes tech transfer and local assembly.
According to Congressional notifications of CH-47F sales to several countries, including Australia, the UAE and Turkey, the current FMS price of a CH-47F is about $80 million.)
