Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and France’s Safran Electronics & Defense have entered into a collaboration to leverage smart technologies and nurture local talent.

Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the sidelines of the Singapore Defence Technology Summit1 2023, DSTA and Safran Electronics & Defense will collaborate on efforts to ensure improved performance, availability and sustainability of their platforms operated by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).

The MOU will also pave the way for both organisations to explore smart technologies such as computer vision for defence applications, through the sharing of R&D outcomes and long-term capability roadmaps, as well as potential integration into existing or new systems operated by the SAF.

In addition, the partnership will further strengthen the set-up of local technical support and talent development initiatives including internship opportunities, as well as knowledge sharing courses.
