In today’s battlefield, technology is the key to victory and the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) is the organisation that holds the key, working very closely with the Singapore Armed Forces to provide technological solutions that will give our soldiers that critical edge. Two DSTA engineers tell us about their diverse work experiences at the forefront of cutting-edge defence technology.

Much of the peace and security that we enjoy today is due to the presence of a strong armed force. One of the vital components in this picture is the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA).
Set up under the purview of the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF), DSTA is responsible for equipping our soldiers with leading-edge technological solutions that maintain the Singapore Armed Forces’ (SAF) status as a formidable fighting force.
The organisation houses some of the brightest minds working on a diverse range of complex and large-scale systems engineering programmes that shape the defence and security landscape of the country.
