The Singapore Army has awarded a $100m contract to ST Engineering for the advanced combat man system (ACMS).

ACMS is a third-generation networked warrior system with advanced C4I (command, control, communications, computers and intelligence) and network features.

ACMS technology integrates the soldier’s capabilities as part of a network-centric force.

The system can improve the situational awareness of the soldier, increasing mobility, command and control thereby enhancing combating capabilities.

The project will begin immediately and is expected to be complete by 2012.
