  3. 'Grab' concept for SAF transport overhaul source: https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/grab-concept-for-saf-transport-overhaul 7 Transport tune-up for SAF Tender for new system aims to optimise resources, improve efficiency The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is seeking to overhaul its transport services, including having a portal for soldiers to make last-minute requests for vehicles. This new system is meant to change the way transport services are provided to military units, such as how requests for drivers, vehicles or fuel are made. The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is seeking to overhaul its transport services, including having a portal for soldiers to make last-minute requests for vehicles – similar to a concept employed by private-hire operators like Grab. This new system is meant to change the way transport services are provided to military units from the army, navy or air force, such as how requests for drivers, vehicles or fuel are made. The aim is to optimise SAF’s transport resources and improve the efficiency of operations, by better matching demand to supply. According to tender documents seen by The Straits Times, the new system is also expected to use data analytics to optimise the allocation of resources, based on factors such as the availability of vehicles and drivers, location, distances, and traffic conditions. Called the Next Generation Transport System, it is expected to be deployed 17 months from when the project kicks off, which is within two weeks after the contract has been signed. A tender for the system was published on Dec 5 last year on government procurement portal GeBIZ. The core requirements include the supply and delivery of the system, as well as maintenance support services for five years. The tender documents also set out standards expected for performance tests, cyber-security measures and the need for support services when incidents occur. The tender closed last month. The Ministry of Defence told ST that the army is currently evaluating bids for the tender. “The army seeks to leverage technology to automate and improve the matching of transport demands and resources in a Next Generation Transport System platform,” it said. As of yesterday, the tender has not been awarded. According to the documents, the new transport system should include a one-stop indent portal for transport users and providers to make and respond to requests in the SAF, which uses a “data-driven approach that leverages data analytics for continuous optimisations”. The system should be able to assign the required resources, such as operators and vehicles, which are available and best able to do the job based on the indent request. Selected users can still do a manual override to allocate manually, although “mandatory justifications” have to be entered. In addition, the ordering of military vehicles in advance should be based on a credit-allocation system, where units can submit a request only if they have sufficient credits. The documents state the system should have a tiered charging system, such as a higher credit deduction for last-minute orders. It should also have surge or peakperiod charging, as well as penalty charges for late cancellations or if complaints are made. For last-minute tasks, there will be a pool of military vehicles with assigned operators on stand-by, which is similar to Grab’s concept, it added. The system should also be able to track data including fulfilment rate, mileage, accidents and anomaly reports such as when a vehicle uses 20 per cent more fuel than is expected. It should also track details about drivers and build a driving profile based on information such as driving behaviour, past performance and accident records. “Combining the optimisation tool and the driver profile, (the system) can match the transport operator to the tasking commensurate with his skill level.” Tender documents state that the system should also include a userfriendly mobile app that allows a driver to access his own profile and get notifications of new tasks, and has a route-planning feature. LEVERAGING TECHNOLOGY The army seeks to leverage technology to automate and improve the matching of transport demands and resources in a Next Generation Transport System platform. THE MINISTRY OF DEFENCE, to The Straits Times. It said the army is currently evaluating bids for the tender.
  4. Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) full-time national serviceman sustained a cervical spine injury during a unilateral parachute training in Taiwan. Underwent surgery and is in a stable condition In a statement by the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF), PTE Joshua Quek Shou Jie, 21, was evacuated to the nearest tertiary hospital, where he underwent surgery on Thursday (Dec. 19) morning. MINDEF stated that the surgery had no complications and his condition is currently stable. Quek is currently being monitored in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and further treatment to stabilise the cervical spine injury is planned. An orthopaedic specialist from Singapore has been flown in to help coordinate medical care. Quek’s family was also flown in to visit him at the hospital. Both parents have spoken with Quek, who is conscious and lucid. The family has asked that their privacy be respected while Quek undergoes further treatment for his recovery. Both MINDEF and SAF will continue to render full support and assistance to the family. The SAF is investigating the incident, and has suspended this training, pending the outcome of investigations.

    New SAF AFV - Hunter

    https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/new-saf-hunter-armoured-fighting-vehicle-commissioned-as-armour-formation-turns-50 As a tankee myself, I’m proud to see another upgrade in our Armour formation. Once Armour Always Armour! SINGAPORE - The Singapore Army has unveiled its latest armoured fighting vehicle (AFV), which boasts greater firepower, survivability and mobility. Hailed as a centrepiece of the next-generation army, the vehicle - called the Hunter to represent the predatory spirit to sense, track, and pursue its prey - was commissioned at the Armour formation's 50th anniversary parade on Tuesday (June 11). Locally designed and developed by the Defence Science and Technology Agency with the Singapore Army and ST Engineering, the Hunter will progressively replace the army's fleet of Ultra M113 armoured fighting vehicles, which have been in service since the 1970s. Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen, who commissioned the Hunter at Sungei Gedong Camp, said that like the first-generation AMX-13 tank from 50 years ago, the new AFV will also make its debut appearance at this year's National Day Parade at the Padang. He said: "Just as the Pioneer Generation, many of whom are here today, previous commanders and men of the armour formation, did half a century ago, and across the 50 years that the Armour has developed, I hope that Singaporeans will draw strength from the SAF's Armour Formation, united as one people, to defend our home together. "This is a fitting tribute to commemorate our Bicentennial with the SAF giving strength to the nation, with Armour at its core." Chief Armour Officer, Brigadier-General Yew Chee Leung, 42, said the Hunter is the army's first fully-digitalised vehicle, incorporating smart digital technologies catered to modern-day soldiers. A digital steering system, called drive-by-wire, allows the vehicle commander to take over the driving function if needed. Its weapons can be controlled via a touchscreen interface. The interior of the Hunter Armoured Fighting Vehicle "So the way we drive and the way we fight have been fully digitalised. That's what we mean when we say it is a fully-digitalised platform," said BG Yew. The Hunter is armed with a 30mm cannon, a 7.62mm machine gun, eight 76mm smoke grenade launchers, and two anti-tank guided missiles - the first time the missiles have been integrated into an armoured fighting vehicle. Conceptualisation of the vehicle began in 2006. It is operated by a crew of three, namely the vehicle commander, gunner and the driver, in an integrated combat cockpit within the vehicle. The Hunter is the army's first armoured fighting vehicle to have such a cockpit, which allows the commander and gunner to operate a common set of controls, and the closed hatch design minimises the crew's exposure to threats, especially in urban environments. BG Yew said that the formation will train a core group of regulars and instructors this year, before starting training for full-time national servicemen and rolling out the vehicle for the 42nd Battalion, Singapore Armoured Regiment next year. The Hunter Armoured Fighting Vehicle on the move at Sungei Gedong Camp "Not only do we see an enhanced capability and lethality in the Hunter AFV, we see enhancements to our operations and maintenance. Especially so when the vehicle is able to actively track and monitor its own status," said Major Brandon Lim, 33, a weapon staff officer involved in the Hunter programme. Algorithms can be used for predictive maintenance, increasing the efficiency of vehicle maintenance and management. The Hunter crew can mobilise unmanned aerial and ground vehicles to gather reconnaissance and surveillance information remotely, with obvious advantages for stealth manoeuvres and its own protection. The first locally developed armoured fighting vehicle, the Bionix, was rolled out in 1999. The event on Tuesday also marked 50 years since the Armour formation's first appearance at a National Day Parade in 1969, when 18 French-made AMX-13 tanks rolled down the Padang. Quoting founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew's memoirs, Dr Ng said the roll-past of the AMX-13 tanks and V200 armoured vehicles had a "dramatic effect" on people in Malaysia, and the tanks' debut had given confidence to Singaporeans, as it marked a step up in the SAF's defence capabilities. Other senior military officers at the parade included Chief of Defence Force Melvyn Ong and Chief of Army Goh Si Hou. DSTA chief executive Tan Peng Yam, as well as the first batch of armour pioneers and early batches of national servicemen from the formation, were also present.

    Boot camp for women to experience NS

    SEES OVERWHELMING DEMAND WOR MCF LADIES - what say you? https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/boot-camp-for-women-to-experience-ns-sees-overwhelming-demand-more-than-1000-gun-for-100 SINGAPORE - Would you pay to stay in a military bunk, eat combat rations and go on a route march? More than 1,000 women of all ages jumped at the chance to do so, signing up for a women's boot camp to experience what national service is like. Response for the overnight camp was so overwhelming that the organiser, Ang Mo Kio Women's Executive Committee (WEC), had to conduct balloting for the 100 slots up for grabs. The camp, which the organiser promoted as a "golden opportunity" to go through NS activities, will take place from Sept 1 to 2 at Maju Camp in Clementi. Participants will take part in a 3km route march, handle the SAR21 rifle and taste combat rations, among other activities. The women will also get to stay overnight in military bunks. Each participant pays $55. PAssion card members get a $10 discount. The camp was announced on July 17 in a Facebook post by the Women's Integration Network Council, which is the coordinating body for the 105 WECs in Singapore. The post attracted almost 3,000 shares and more than 2,000 comments. Among the 100 who managed to secure a place for the camp, the youngest participant is 13 years old, while the oldest is 64, the organising committee told The Straits Times. The average age of the participants is about 29. Ms Joanna Portilla, chairman of Ang Mo Kio WEC, said: "Through this camp, the organisers hope to give women a glimpse of what our national servicemen go through so that they can better relate to national servicemen's experiences and demonstrate stronger support and involvement in NS and defence. "We are very grateful for the overwhelming response from the public. This shows that women are keen to play a part in supporting national service." Those who failed to clinch a spot will be notified from Sunday (Aug 19) onwards. Ms Portilla added that the committee is open to the possibility of organising similar initiatives in the future. The camp is part of an initiative by the Advisory Council on Community Relations in Defence (Accord) which facilitates initiatives from the community that better support national defence and NS, among other roles. The success of the Dads for Life Camp, which saw more than 200 father-son pairs take part in an overnight camp at the F1 Pit Building last year, inspired Accord to suggest a similar experience for women, said Ms Portilla. That camp was organised by the Centre for Fathering. Administrative executive Tabatha Lim, 19, will be joining the upcoming camp with a friend. Ms Lim, who is excited about being able to handle the SAR21 rifle, told ST: "I was really excited when I got to know about the boot camp as I have always been very curious about what it's like to serve NS. "We spend a lot of time listening to so many stories from our male friends, brothers, fathers, and we never got to experience it ourselves unless we decide to sign on with the army. So this is the perfect opportunity to do so." Civil servant Lee Yet Wei, 30, also applied to join the women's camp because she was curious about NS life, and what it is like to stay in the bunks. She said: "Such an opportunity doesn't always come by, and it is an experience I am looking forward to."
  13. Azizul Hj Tandek, managing director of Enggang Keramat Automobile, told paultan.org that the company will be launching a new Malaysian car brand called SAF – named after the arrangement of Muslims in prayer – in April this year. The new lineup will consist of rebadged versions of models from the Chinese brand Foday, namely the Lion F22 pick-up truck and the Landfort seven-seater SUV. The two vehicles will be badged as the SAF Striker and SAF Landfort respectively, and will look identical to the Foday models, albeit with SAF badging. Both models will be built at Oriental Assemblers in Tampoi, Johor, the same company that also assembles Chery models in Malaysia. Only one engine will be available from launch – a Mitsubishi-derived 4G69S4N 2.4 litre petrol engine delivering 134 hp at 5,250 rpm and 200 Nm of torque from 2,500 to 3,000 rpm. Five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions are on offer, as is a choice of either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive (Striker pick-up will be 4×4 only). The Striker is expected to be priced below RM100,000, while the Landfort SUV is slated to cost less than RM150,000. Exact kit has yet to be decided, but both models should come with dual airbags and ABS with EBD; no stability control on offer, however. Enggang Keramat is looking at an initial run of 100 units for each model when the brand is launched next month, available at 20 dealers nationwide – all 3S centres – in both Peninsular and East Malaysia. http://paultan.org/2016/02/29/new-malaysian-brand-saf-to-launch-april-striker-pick-up-and-landfort-suv-to-be-based-on-foday-models/
  14. SINGAPORE: The Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) will be imposing market rate season parking charges on six more MINDEF and Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) camps and bases from Sunday (Apr 1). In a news release on Tuesday, MINDEF said the car parks in these six camps have been deemed to have market value due to their proximity to public amenities. It did not specify which camps will be affected. Channel NewsAsia understands that Khatib Camp and Mowbray Camp in Choa Chu Kang are among the six. MINDEF said the season parking policy will apply to all permanent staff as well as contractors who require a car park lot on a regular basis. This is in addition to the 10 camps, bases and related premises that currently impose season parking charges. “Operationally ready National Servicemen who are going for their in-camp training and other operationally ready National Service activities will continue not to be charged for parking their cars in all camp/bases,” said MINDEF. Channel NewsAsia understands that the season parking charges are S$120 per month for covered car parks and S$90 per month for open-air car parks. These are based on the market rates of Housing and Development Board car parks near the premises. The Ministry of Education announced on Monday that staff at national schools will be charged season parking fees from August. Parking policy at schools came under review after the Audit-General's Office (AGO) 2014/2015 Financial Year report highlighted that some educational institutions did not impose parking charges or had charges that were below the market rate. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/mindef-parking-charges-6-military-camps-and-bases-april-10079268
  15. I read our minister say how much money our saf save.... but my experience with my reservist unit feels the exact opposite. It feels like they have to spend their Budget else it will be cut next year kind of feeling. I am curios is it like a widespread kind of thing or it’s just my unit? My unit is not conbat fit so maybe it is different from mainstream saf.

    SAF Boots Selling in TaoBao!

    Guys, Taobao is really super powerful. I happen to found this. haha.
  20. Kinda curious with this. Anybody with experience may clarify this? 1) SAF drivers gets their SAF Driving License during their army time(different from Civilian’s), but what if you have already gotten a Civilian Driving License before you entered the Army? Will you get posted to the driver vocation? I’ve heard that if you already have a Civilian Driving License, chances of you getting into the Driver Vocation is almost ZERO or you don’t even have a chance as they want to give those people with no license to experience as a driver? How reliable is this? 2) Second question. So example if I got into the driver vocation and I hold both SAF Driving License & Civilian Driving License, and One unfortunate day (example) I am driving the military vehicle and I accidentally got caught committing traffic offences (such as speeding/beat red light/knock down people with no intention), does it affect only my SAF driving license only and get charged, or it will also affect my Civilian driving license as well? Meaning both my SAF & Civilian driving license gets affected (Demerit points etc.) It just some thought that makes me curious & just for in case. Accidents do happen, I know we can prevent it but it’s just for some knowledge.

    Is this allowed?

    I rem vaguely in SAF Military law, its not allowed...... Lunch time, saw this stall with a guy working there, wearing SAF uniform with Lieutenant rank. I can confirm that the guy is local, not a FT trying to look like us. And i'm not disclosing this stall location. This guy must have his own reason for having to wear uniform while working in food stall. He's probably doing ICT now, and maybe got to work at same time.
