Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on data analytics.

Established on the sidelines of the Singapore Defence Technology Summit, the agreement paves the way to focus on the use of data analytics as well as machine learning models and algorithms to generate insights for systems operated by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). The aim is to further enhance the efficiency of maintenance and operations for the SAF’s combat vehicles. One of the new areas is the Tactical Support Bridge which DSTA has recently contracted for.

“DSTA recognizes that digitalization is a key thrust in today’s technology landscape, and that it possesses much potential to transform the way we maintain and operate our platforms. This partnership with KMW aims to accelerate DSTA’s ongoing efforts to digitalise SAF’s Fleet Management System to ensure high readiness of various platforms, as well as to reduce both operating and manpower costs”, said Mr. Roy Chan, DSTA’s Deputy Chief Executive (Operations).

“We have been working closely together for more than a decade. This MOU establishes a framework between our two organizations to improve maintenance and sustainability. It also underlines the intention to continue to work together in a spirit of trust”, said Dr. Axel Scheibel, KMW’s Chief Operating Officer (COO).
