DSTA inks deals with Airbus and Boeing for tech and analytics

The deals will result in projects for Singapore's air force and aircraft.

Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) separately signed agreements with Airbus Defence and Space (Airbus) and Boeing for digital technologies and data analytics.

According to an announcement, the agreement with Airbus involves joint cooperation in digital technologies. The two will commit to promote the codevelopment of digital technologies, which will benefit the support for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)’s aircraft.

The framework would allow DSTA and Airbus to pool their engineering expertise through collaborations on areas such as data analytics, augmented and virtual reality and 3D printing, DSTA said.

According to another announcement, the deal with Boeing involves their first project agreement to commence joint research and co-development in data analytics.

DSTA chief executive Tan Peng Yam commented, “Under this agreement, we will jointly develop an information management tool leveraging data analytics to identify trends and insights on aircraft performance. This signifies our emphasis on tapping digital technologies and working closely with the industry to co-develop new capabilities.”

The information management tool will analyse flight and maintenance data for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)’s F-15 and AH-64 aircraft. The findings will also be used to develop algorithms for predictive analytics for smarter maintenance and operations.
