Defense and security company Saab and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), one of the world’s leading research-intensive institutions, have signed a five-year master research collaboration agreement.

The agreement was signed by NTU President Professor Bertil Andersson, and Saab Executive Vice President and Deputy CEO Micael Johansson at NTU Singapore.

It follows the Memorandum of Understanding that was signed in Stockholm on 18 October this year. 

“This is an important step for Saab, heavily expanding our research internationally. NTU is one of the world’s best technology universities and we are very happy to be able to start this important collaboration together with them,” said Micael Johansson, Executive Vice President and Deputy CEO at Saab.

The two current focus areas for the research collaboration to be conducted at the Saab-NTU Joint Research Centre will be air traffic management projects, such as investigating the possibility of employing artificial intelligence and machine learning to augment the capability of air traffic controllers, and also underwater robotic research, to enable underwater autonomous vehicles to navigate relative to its surrounding objects.

“This collaboration allows Saab and NTU to leverage each other capabilities. NTU’s strengths in interdisciplinary research, together with Saab’s expertise in aeronautics and defence technology can create important synergies that could lead to the development of innovative technologies that will benefit both industry and society,” said Prof Andersson.
