We develop systems architectures which ensure defence systems and networks fit and operate well in a coherent and integrated manner to realise the full potential of the next generation fighting force. Working closely with MINDEF and the SAF, we design new operating concepts and engineering master plans, and validate them through operational analysis and simulation.
Through our work, complexities in system of systems such as the Island Air Defence system, coastal defence as well as airbases of the future can be better managed.
With advances in digitalisation, we tap data analytics and artificial intelligence to enhance our systems engineering practices.
On a Learning Journey
“I am inspired to keep learning so that I can contribute effectively to the defence landscape. I am very appreciative of DSTA’s structured way of training.”
– Head (Capability Planning Office) Tan Puay Siang
“The most fulfilling moments are the ‘eureka’ moments when I discover counterintuitive insights that would not have surfaced without conducting an operations research study. For me, the feeling is similar to making scientific discoveries that will change the future.”
– Principal Analyst Lau Joon Hong
