ST Engineering, Singapore’s global defence and engineering group, is the largest exhibitor this at the Singapore Airshow and has chosen the theme “Engineering Your Future”. The company is showcasing its technology know-how, new and proven solutions, as well as battle-tested products, such as the brain-computer-interface drone and a drone network system called DroNet.
This will also be for the first time that the Group will present its military training solution through a Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) demonstration, integrating live “surrogate” trainers with Augmented Reality (AR) targets, virtual man-in-the-loop simulators and constructive simulation forces in a networked environment to enhance training realism, effectiveness and safety.
“As countries and businesses around the world adapt to the fourth industrial evolution and rethink the old way of doing things, our showcase at the airshow will demonstrate how we integrate our diverse capabilities and latest technologies to create robust and well-customised solutions for real-world problems,” said Chew Men Leong, Chief Marketing Officer at ST Engineering.
The company is also showcasing its Terrex 2, 8×8 wheeled armoured vehicle platform, developed along with Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC). The ACV is one of two finalists for the U.S Marine Corps Amphibious Combat Vehicle Phase 1, Increment 1 (ACV 1.1) programme and 16 vehicles are already undergoing testing in the USA.
The Terrex 2 can transport a combat load of up to 11 embarked Marines, and three crew members, through hostile territory, on land and in water, where its hydraulically driven propulsion systems with full independent thrust control authority allows safe operation at Sea-State 3 and through six-foot plunging surf.
