About SATEC 2024

Singapore Aerospace Technology and Engineering Conference (SATEC) 2024, held in conjunction with the Singapore Airshow, is jointly organised by the Republic of Singapore Air Force, Air Engineering and Logistics Department (RSAF, AELD) and the Singapore Institute of Aerospace Engineers (SIAE).

This biennial conference brings together engineers and researchers from defence and government, key aerospace industry players and academia to discuss key developments and advancements in aerospace technology and engineering.

SATEC has a long and illustrious history dating back to 2004, with the RSAF and SIAE jointly organising the biennial New Challenges in Aerospace Technology and Maintenance Conference (NCATMC). The NCATMC was subsequently renamed SATEC since 2012.

More than 1200 delegates (physical and virtual) from both military and civil aerospace and defence industries, as well as senior officials from government agencies are expected to attend the event.

Distinguished Guest Panel 1: Air Dominance Tomorrow

Mr. Ang Jer Meng
Director Air Systems, Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA)

Air power was first introduced during World War I, and subsequently gained strategic importance in World War II. Today, it has become the cornerstone for coordinated air campaigns. While air power concepts initially focused on the design of nimble dog-fighters, it has rapidly evolved with the integration of stealth, networking capabilities, sensor fusion techniques as well as precision weaponry. More recently, we see the adoption of emerging technologies like AI, with the deliberate integration and optimisation of manned and unmanned systems coming to the fore. The dynamics of air dominance has changed, and sophisticated weaponry alone does not guarantee the upper-hand.

The threat environment has also evolved from clear, defined roles to a landscape characterised by unprecedented uncertainty and the proliferation of asymmetric warfare. The trajectory leading up to how the next conflict will be fought is now less predictable. Concomitantly, it is recognised that the next generation of air power must adapt accordingly to stay ahead of the power curve. Future programmes will have to adjust to an environment where technological advancement is driven by the commercial sector, transform from traditional monolithic approaches to remain resilient in an evolving threat environment, whilst facing the cost-effectiveness dichotomy posed by the emergence of unconventional low-cost systems.

Flagship programmes include the Future Combat Air System Programme (FCAS), Global Combat Aircraft Programme (GCAP) and the Next Generation Air Dominance Programme (NGAD), which are marked by a strategic orientation around collaborative warfare and optimisation at an ecosystem level instead of an individual platform. These programmes also emphasise agility in development approaches, and the continuous integration of emerging and commercial technologies. This panel invites distinguished representatives for a discourse on how future air dominance programmes would position themselves to navigate the complexities of the future operational environment, the trade-offs that have to be made, and how programmes would be structured for agility and adaptability to deliver enduring capabilities at the speed of relevance.
