Singapore commissions first LMV

5th May 2017 - 05:00 GMT | by Chen Chuanren in Singapore


The Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) commissioned its first Independence-class Littoral Mission Vessel (LMV) on 5 May, with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong performing the honours on Navy Day at Changi Naval Base.

Since the RSN received the Independence on 26 May last year, the vessel has undergone numerous sea trials and systems integration, including the Threat Evaluation and Weapon Assignment (TEWA) decision support system.

Developed locally for the RSN, the fully automated TEWA is able to evaluate threats picked up by the ship's sensors, assign a suitable weapon system, and complete the kill loop with damage analysis.
