DSTA Signs Digital Technology Accords with Boeing & Airbus

: Jun 29, 2018 - : 2:24 am

Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and Boeing signed the first project agreement to commence joint research and co-development in data analytics earlier at the inaugural Singapore Defence Technology Summit.


“Under this agreement, we will jointly develop an information management tool leveraging data analytics to identify trends and insights on aircraft performance. This signifies our emphasis on tapping digital technologies and working closely with the industry to co-develop new capabilities,” said DSTA Chief Executive Mr Tan Peng Yam.


The information management tool will analyse flight and maintenance data for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)’s F-15 and AH-64 aircraft. The findings will also be used to develop algorithms for predictive analytics for smarter maintenance and operations.


“Boeing is proud of its partnership with DSTA to improve aircraft generation and reduce sustainment costs. As we broaden our demonstrated commercial digital portfolio and apply them to defense systems operations, many will benefit from data-driven solutions that will increase the overall effectiveness of operations,” said Stan Deal, President and Chief Executive Officer, Boeing Global Services.


Airbus also signed an agreement with DSTA to co-develop digital technologies to enhance support for aircraft in operation with RSAF.


Under the agreement between the DSTA and Airbus, the two organisations will undertake research and development of digital products and services that can “optimise the maintenance and availability of the military platforms acquired and operated by Singapore”, said a joint statement.
