As part of his visit, Dr. Ng commissioned the Army's latest suite of sense and strike capabilities, namely the TPQ-53 Weapon Locating Radar (WLR) and the BELREX Protected Combat Service Vehicle with the Advanced Mortar System. In addition, he also unveiled the V15 mini-Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (mUAV).

The new HQ SS was formed to deepen the Army's sense and strike expertise and competencies, through the reorganization of Headquarters Army Intelligence and Headquarters Singapore Artillery under the 6th Singapore Division.

In this Next-Generation transformation journey, the Army had worked closely with the Defence Technology Community to leverage emerging technologies to develop the capabilities required to effectively guard against the growing spectrum of multi-domain threats.

Commenting that it is important for the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) not to lose focus even during COVID-19, Dr. Ng said, " In March this year, the Army fully operationalised the third generation Combined Arms Division. I have just seen the commissioning of some of the assets of HQ SS – the TPQ-53 WLR, as well as the BELREX Advanced Mortar System and the unveiling of the V15 mini-UAV. Overall we are going to use more artificial intelligence, robotics, data analytics."
