The Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) of Singapore has inked an agreement with Boeing, world's largest aviation and aerospace company, on joint research and co-development in data analytics earlier at the inaugural Singapore Defence Technology Summit, according to a statement from Boeing.

As part of the agreement, the joint venture will develop an information management tool leveraging data analytics to identify trends and insights on aircraft performance.

The tool, as Boeing said, will analyze flight and maintenance data for the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)'s F-15 and AH-64 aircraft and the research findings will also be used to develop algorithms for predictive analytics for smarter maintenance and operations.

"Boeing is proud of its partnership with DSTA to improve aircraft generation and reduce sustainment costs. As we broaden our demonstrated commercial digital portfolio and apply them to defense systems operations, many will benefit from data-driven solutions that will increase the overall effectiveness of operations," said Stan Deal, President and Chief Executive Officer, Boeing Global Services.

The DSTA is a statutory board set up under the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and provides leading-edge technology solutions to the Singapore Armed Forces by tapping the best technologies and fostering an environment of creativity and innovation for defense applications.

Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners, defense, space and security systems, and service provider of aftermarket support.
