Expanding on their 2023 collaboration agreement, Lockheed Martin's Vice President of Sustainment Campaigns, Steve Sheehy (front left) and DSTA Director Air Systems, Ang Jer Meng (front right) celebrate a new data pipeline partnership. Additional attendees included President of Lockheed Martin International and SVP, Global Business Development & Strategy, Michael Williamson (back left) and Mervyn Tan, Chief Executive for DSTA (back right).

Singapore's Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and Lockheed Martin entered into an agreement on 22 February 2024 to implement a new data pipeline infrastructure to facilitate the seamless exchange of digitalised fleet and supply chain datasets. This will allow for improved data analytics insights for the optimisation of aircraft maintenance support, leading to reduction in sustainment cost, improvement in overall fleet availability and enhanced operational readiness for the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

Established on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow, this announcement follows the collaboration agreement signed between both organisations in March 2023.

"We are glad to further strengthen our collaboration with Lockheed Martin, and establishing a new data pipeline reflects a shared commitment to leverage digital technologies to enable smarter maintenance support for our aircraft," said DSTA's Director Air Systems, Ang Jer Meng.

"This is what engineering for Sustainment looks like in action. Through this agreement, Lockheed Martin will be better positioned to meet the needs of DSTA, now and for the years to follow," said Steve Sheehy, Vice President for Sustainment Campaigns at Lockheed Martin. "Together, we will be able to analyze and implement solutions to improve maintenance of the Republic of Singapore Air Force F-16 fleet." Sheehy added: "Lockheed Martin's 21st Century Security vision aims to deliver integrated mission-focused defence capabilities by innovating with urgency, and this agreement enables collaboration towards that vision."
