Singapore Army commissions home-made upgraded battlefield communications system

By Army Technology; The Singapore Army has commissioned a domestically manufactured wide area communications (WAC) system, designed to enhance its battlefield communication capabilities, during an official ceremony at Stagmont Camp in Choa Chu Kang, Singapore. Jointly manufactured by the army’s Signal Formation, Defence Science Technology Agency and Singapore Technologies, the system is expected to transform the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) into a third-generation integrated fighting force. Speaking during the ceremony, Singapore State Defence senior minister Chan Chun Sing said the powerful and responsive system would enable development of a networked fighting force capable of conducting a broad spectrum of operations. “These enhancements allow our forces to manoeuvre with greater precision and concentrate their fire-power with heightened accuracy,” Sing said. The upgraded WAC system is made up of a Ku-Band Satellite Communications (SATCOM) system and Digitised Trunk Communications System (D-TCS), which is capable of linking fighting forces to the command headquarters through a high bandwidth data network in the battlefield (Read More).
