Singapore is looking to expand its use of drones to support public services, for instance, to help monitor dengue-ht areas and construction sites.
The Ministry of Transport announced that it had awarded a main contract for the deployment of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones, to three key vendors, from which government agencies would then approach to deploy the technology. This “master contract” arrangement would allow for economies of scale, said the ministry, adding that more public agencies were expected to conduct pilots using drones to support their daily operations.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore would administer the two-year master contract, which would end October 31, 2018.
