Airbus Defence and Space, headquartered in Ottobrunn, Germany, has signed an agreement with Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) to collaborate on the advancement of digital technologies, including Additive Manufacturing, data analytics, augmented and virtual reality.

The collaboration agreement will promote the co-development of digital technologies for use by the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) in its aircraft. Under the agreement, the partners will pool their engineering expertise in the relevant areas, drawing on Airbus’s experience within the defence and aerospace industries and the DSTA’s community of engineers and scientists from universities, research institutes, government and industry in Singapore.

The DSTA is a statutory board set up under Singapore’s Ministry of Defence, which implements defence technology plans, acquires defence material and develops defence infrastructure, providing advanced solutions to the Singapore Armed Forces. Tan Peng Yam, DSTA Chief Executive, stated, “This collaboration agreement reflects the mutual interest in DSTA and Airbus to partner on digital technology development, by pulling together our collective expertise and know-how.”
