Parliament: 23 SAF courses, including BMT, now accredited under Workforce Skills Qualification

SINGAPORE - More than 96 per cent of full-time national servicemen (NSFs) who enlist from January this year will receive Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ) annually. The move is part of a drive to enhance the value of NS and ease the servicemen's transition back to studies or the workplace. A total of 23 courses conducted by the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) - including the Basic Military Training (BMT) for most recruits - are now accredited under the WSQ scheme, the national system that trains and certifies individuals in skills that are valued by employers, said the Ministry of Defence. Under this national training framework, workers gain qualifications ranging from a certificate to an ad

Parliament: New cyber vocation 'selective and demanding' comparable to commandos and naval d

SINGAPORE - Singapore's cyber defenders will need to possess "a high level of skill" given the increasing frequency and complexity of cyberattacks, Second Minister of Defence Ong Ye Kung said on Friday (March 3). "They will be entering a very selective and demanding vocation, comparable to the commandos or naval divers," he said at the Ministry of Defence's (Mindef) Committee of Supply debate in Parliament. Earlier, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen announced that Mindef will set up a cyber command - comprising 2,600 personnel in total - to beef up its defence against cyber attacks, and rope in national servicemen (NSmen) to play a bigger role in safeguarding the nation's military networks. A new

In the skies, micro unmanned aerial drones will provide troops with greater situational awareness. These were the scenarios for the next generation of Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), which were revealed by the Defence Ministry on Friday (March 3) during the Budget debate in Parliament. To design and build these robots, a robotics laboratory will be set up in April in the DSO National Laborato

Parliament: Mindef sets up new cyber command to beef up defence against cyber attacks

SINGAPORE - The Defence Ministry (Mindef) will set up a cyber command to beef up its defence against cyber attacks, and rope in National Servicemen (NSmen) to play a bigger role in safeguarding the nation's military networks. This will help tackle the growth in cyber threats against countries, especially in light of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) becoming an increasingly networked and technologically-centric force. The new cyber command, which was announced by Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen in Parliament on Friday (March 3), will be called the Defence Cyber Organisation (DCO), that will be responsible for developing cyber defence strategies and policies. The new organisation will also take ch

Parliament: New $900m training ground the size of Bishan to give soldiers realistic urban combat exp

SINGAPORE - A new training ground roughly the size of Bishan town will be built in western Singapore to let soldiers hone their urban fighting skills in real-life settings such as high-rise buildings, warehouses, and even an MRT station with multiple exits. This 88ha area, dubbed the Safti City, will allow soldiers to train in a dense urban environment that closely resembles Singapore's landscape when it is completed in the west of the country in 10 years, said Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen on Friday (March 3) in Parliament. One sector of Safti City will be packed with clusters of shophouses, high-rise interconnected buildings, low-rise residences, basement carparks, a bus interchange and a MR
