The Key Emerging Technologies (KET) are clustered into the following areas:

  • advanced lasers and thermal management,
  • protective materials,
  • advanced materials,
  • mobile security,
  • speech processing,
  • micro-sensors and
  • credibility assessment.

These teams carry out exploratory research to keep abreast with potential disruptive technologies that may have a significant impact on future defense systems, to develop a competitive advantage or to solve some extremely challenging problems encountered for our defense partners. The teams here collaborates heavily with our partners from the academia, both local and overseas, typically on lower TRL research areas.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
