The large waves created by earthquakes under the sea floor destroy thousands of lives and livelihoods each year, but we know very little about how these massive walls of water behave. Dr Tiziana Rosetto (UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering) and colleagues studying fluid dynamics have created a completely new way of generating models of these waves. The information they gain allows them to predict the damage exacted by tsunami on buildings and infrastructure, helping communities worldwide defend against these potential disasters.

This underground facility freed up land the size of 400 football fields. That's about half the size of Pasir Ris New Town! From conceptualising to commissioning, the Underground Ammunition Facility (UAF) took the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) more than 10 years to build. In this video, defence engineers from DSTA talk about how they pushed the boundaries of conventional research to deliver this ground-breaking innovation.

It’s tougher than your standard bulletproof glass! At only 10mm thick, the Transparent Ceramic Armour that DSO National Laboratories (DSO) has produced can withstand a typical high-calibre round fired at close range. Hear defence research scientists from DSO talk about the challenges of producing this ceramic armour and the many advantages of this thinner and lighter alternative.

"It all started from when I was younger really, my dad is a pilot and an engineer, an Aerospace Engineer. I grew up in that environment and I've always been really interested in how things work. I've only been specialized as Mechanical Engineer for the last three years. Within that time I already have antennas I've been working on [...] in space operating as we speak."

How do you fit seven live-firing ranges into one building? By going up! Engineers from the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) stacked three storeys of ranges into one building, and the Multi-Mission Range Complex was born. DSTA engineers share their inspiration for this one-stop marksmanship training facility, packed with innovative features.

Definitions of hard and soft engineering. The main types of coastal defence used on the coastline of the UK should be studied including groynes, sea walls, off- shore reefs, rip rap, revetments, beach replenishment, managed retreat and cliff regrading
It's fast. It's nimble. And there's no one behind the wheel! This is the Venus 16 Unmanned Surface Vessel, jointly developed by Republic of Singapore Navy, Defence Science and Technology Agency, DSO National Laboratories and local defence industry partners. Navigating itself through Singapore's crowded waterways using a sophisticated suite of autonomy software and sensors, the Venus 16 scans the seabed for mines. Watch the video to see how it goes mine hunting... hands-free!

Innovation through science and technology gives the SAF the strategic edge to stay ahead. But this innovation would not be possible and sustainable without a pool of defence engineers and scientists who are prepared to experiment and fail many times over before they succeed. Step into the world of a new generation of engineers and scientists who will power the SAF and find out more about their journey of discovery in “Engineering Our Defence – Nurturing The Future."
