Singapore to acquire two submarines from German firm

SINGAPORE: Singapore, which has Southeast Asia’s most modern military, said Monday it was acquiring two new submarines from German defence contractor ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.

In a statement, the defence ministry said it signed a contract to acquire two “Type 218SG” submarines, which are projected to be delivered in 2020.

It said the deal included a logistics package and a crew training arrangement in Germany, but did not reveal the total cost.

The two new submarines, along with Archer-class submarines purchased from Sweden in 2005 will replace its Challenger-class submarines that were built in the 1960s and acquired by the city-state in the 1990s.

“The replacement submarines will have significantly improved capabilities and be equipped with Air Independent Propulsion Systems,” the ministry said in the statement.

The German firm said the propulsion system significantly increases a submarine’s underwater range, reducing the risk of discovery.

Singapore announced in September it was acquiring an advanced European air defence system to replace its ageing US-made Hawk surface-to-air batteries.

It has set aside Sg$12.34 billion ($9.84 billion) for defence in 2013, up from Sg$11.83 billion in 2012.

Singapore, surrounded by far larger neighbours, has pursued a robust defence strategy since its acrimonious split from Malaysia in 1965.

All able-bodied men must serve for two years in the military upon turning 18, providing additional manpower on top of the estimated 20,000 regulars. AFP

ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems receives major submarine order from Singapore

Press release, Dec. 02, 2013 - 15:40 PM (CET)

ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, a company of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, has signed a contract for the delivery of two submarines of HDW Class 218SG to Singapore.
HDW Class 218SG is a customised design from ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems. The submarines, which will be fitted out with an air independent propulsion system, are going to be built at the Kiel premises of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.
Compared to the present ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems submarines, the new design has been customised to house additional equipment for present and future operational requirements. Special attention has also been paid to the ultra-modern layout of the tailor-made Combat System of these submarines. ST Electronics, being part of the ST Engineering group, will co-develop such Combat System with Atlas Elektronik GmbH.
Dr. Hans Christoph Atzpodien, Chairman of the Management Board of Business Area Industrial Solutions of ThyssenKrupp AG, underlines the importance of the order: “We very much look forward to continue the co-operation with the Republic of Singapore Navy which has already been a customer of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems. The new order is an affirmation of our high-end products and services and will further strengthen our position as a world market leader in the sector of non-nuclear submarines. The contract does not only safeguard jobs at ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, but also several hundred jobs at subcontractors.”

Default Singapore Says in 'No Particular Hurry' to Buy Lockheed F-35 Jets

Singapore Says in 'No Particular Hurry' to Buy Lockheed F-35 Jets

F-35 Lightning II

(Reuters) - Singapore's Defense Minister Ng Eng Hen on Thursday said his country was seriously considering buying Lockheed Martin Corp's F-35 fighter jet but was in "no particular hurry" to buy new jets since its F-16 fighters were still in good shape.

"Singapore is seriously looking at the F-35s to replace our F-16s," the Singapore official told reporters at the Pentagon during a joint news conference with U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

"We're in no particular hurry, because our F-16s are still very operational, and they're due for upgrades. But it is a serious consideration," Eng Hen said.

The minister said he saw a demonstration of two F-35 B-models operated by the U.S. Marine Corps during a visit to Luke Air Force Base in Arizona earlier this week and described the new aircraft as "quite an engineering marvel." The B-model takes off from shorter runways and lands like a helicopter.

Lockheed is developing three models of the new Joint Strike Fighter for the U.S. military and eight countries that helped fund its development: Britain, Canada, Australia, Norway, Turkey, Italy, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands.

Israel and Japan have also ordered the new radar-evading warplane, and South Korea last month signaled its plans to order 40 of the planes.

Singapore has long been interested in the fighter plane, and appeared poised to place firm orders earlier this year, but that timetable has slipped somewhat, according to sources close to the F-35 program.

Post ST Electronics Opens New State-Of-The-Art Satellite Systems Centre

ST Electronics Opens New State-Of-The-Art Satellite Systems Centre

ST Electronics custom-built new facilities equipped with advanced design and manufacturing facilities to pioneer the development of the Satellite Industry in Singapore

Singapore, 19 August 2014 – Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) today announced the opening of ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre, a new state-of-the-art facility custom-built for the design and manufacturing of satellite systems. The event is graced by Mr S Iswaran, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry.

Constructed in about a year, the six-storey ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre, located at 6 Ang Mo Kio Electronics Park Road has a total floor area in excess of 11,000 sqm. The Centre accommodates well equipped laboratories for development work on remote sensing satellites in the areas of satellite attitude control and determination, high-throughput satellite communications, advanced computing, intelligent power control and management system as well as ground station infrastructure.

The Centre also boasts a high-bay clean room of 12m height for the concurrent Assembly, Integration and Testing (AIT) of two satellites. ST Electronics has used the facility to successfully construct and test the Qualification Model for TeLEOS-1, which is the first commercial Remote Earth Observation Satellite wholly designed in Singapore. ST Electronics is currently constructing the Flight Model for TeLEOS-1 which will be launched into space in 2015.

“This ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre affirms our long term commitment to build a vibrant and globally competitive satellite eco-system in Singapore. Working hand-in-hand with EDB, we will help the local industry to level up technologically and increase their value-add.” ~ LEE Fook Sun, President, ST Electronics.

“The opening of ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre is an important milestone in our efforts to build a sustainable satellite industry. As the first local commercial satellite design and manufacturing facility for small satellites, the Centre will enable ST Electronics to leverage on its competencies to develop and export new small satellite solutions to the world. Moving forward, we will work closely with the industry to capture the growth opportunities in the booming satellite market and create new exciting engineering jobs for Singaporeans.” ~ Kelvin WONG, Assistant Managing Director, Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB).

ST Electronics is home to more than 300 satellite engineering professionals in Singapore, out of which about 100 of them are working on Space related satellite activities and to construct the TeLEOS-1 satellite. The remaining 200 engineers are involved in the development of advanced satcom networks and systems as well as producing the world's smallest, lightest and most power-efficient high throughput satcom terminals and solid state power amplifiers, which are sold to more than 110 countries worldwide.

Space development and satellite manufacturing worldwide is projected to grow robustly and exceed $25 billion in total revenue in the next decade. Industrial analysts have estimated that about 280 remote sensing satellites will be built over this period for various government and commercial applications such as maritime safety, homeland security, energy and resources management, environmental and disaster relief applications.

The ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre represents the aspirations of ST Electronics to go into space and exploit the economic opportunities that space presents. ST Electronics Satellite Systems Centre will be the focal point in building the high value-add satellite industry in Singapore. In addition, ST Electronics hopes to inspire the Singapore industry and academia to explore further opportunities in space and engender interests in young students to take up engineering as their career of choice. ST Electronics is working closely with Economic Development Board (EDB) in these pursuits.

Singapore’s first commercial Earth observation satellite, TeLEOS-1, will be launched into a 550 kilometer Near Equatorial Orbit (NEqO) for commercial imagery service in 2015. The 400 kilogram satellite, equipped with an electro-optical camera payload capable of performing imaging at ground resolution of down to one metre and with a high revisit rate, is suited for applications such as disaster and environment monitoring, maritime safety, coastal surveillance, urban planning and homeland security
