By FAIRUZ MOHD SHAHAR - April 24, 2017 @ 7:55pm
Quote:
PUTRAJAYA: Canada's National Defence Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan is on an official visit to Malaysia from today to Wednesday.

The Foreign Ministry said it will be the first official visit to Malaysia undertaken by the country's defence minister since the establishment of bilateral ties between Malaysia and Canada in 1957.

During the visit, Harjit is scheduled to pay a courtesy call on Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman to discuss and exchange views on bilateral relations as well as regional and international issues of common interest.

"He is also scheduled to have a bilateral meeting with Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, to discuss and exchange views on issues pertaining to defense relations between two countries.

"This year marks the 60th anniversary of Malaysia-Canada diplomatic relations. Ties between the two countries remain friendly and cordial with key cooperation in areas of trade, investment, defence and security cooperation,"the ministry said in a statement, today.

Harjit is also expected to give further impetus to the bilateral relations and interactions between the two countries in near future.

Pesawat Sukhoi SU-30MKM kita jatuhkan dua jenis LGB semasa Eks Paradise.

Pengeboman dilakukan di lapang sasar Kota Belud. Bagi yang tak faham.. Flanker kita dah jatuhkan Laser Guided Bomb

Akhirnya TUDM berjaya buat technology migration antara Nato dan Russia dan pesawat Sukhoi TUDM sekarang dah certified untuk jatuhkan laser guided bom

Bom panduan laser yang di jatuhkan Ialah GBU-12 dan di pandu ke sasaran menggunakan ground laser target designator oleh anggota Pasukan Khas Udara Paskau.

GBU-12 Paveway II merupakan aerial laser-guided bomb, yang menggunakan bom Mk 82 500-pound general-purpose bomb sebagai asas tetapi dengan tambahan nose-mounted laser seeker dan fin untuk pandu bom ini.

Paveway 2 ini sangat tepat dan memiliki circular error probable (CEP) dengan 1.1 meter. Sebagai perbandingan bom GP memiliki CEP 94.49 meter.

Ubah suai ini dilakukan oleh TUDM sendiri dengan merekabentuk dan cipta sendiri adaptor bagi integrasi pesawat Sukhoi dan Paveway II

MELBOURNE, Australia — Malaysia has adapted its Russian-built Sukhoi Su-30 multi-role combat aircraft to drop U.S. laser-guided bombs, with a successful release of a live weapon at the end of last year.

A video by the Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia, or Royal Malaysian Air Force, to celebrate its 59th anniversary showed a brief clip of a Su-30MKM dropping a 500-pound GBU-12 laser-guided bomb, with the accompanying caption stating that the event happened in November 2016 at the service's weapons range at Kota Belud in the state of Sabah, Malaysia.

The segment of the Su-30 dropping the GBU-12 has since been deleted from the video.

It was unclear how the Air Force guided the weapon during the successful weapons release. Malaysia possesses the Thales Damocles surveillance and targeting pod for its Su-30MKMs, which it uses in conjunction with the Russian KAB-series of laser-guided bombs and Kh-29TE air-to-surface missile.

Alternatively, Malaysian special forces on the ground are able to designate targets using hand-held designators.

The country also acquired six Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared pods in 2012 under a capability upgrade program for its eight Boeing F/A-18D Hornets.

Malaysia operates a fleet of 18 Su-30MKMs alongside its Hornets as the Air Force's primary combat aircraft. The service's Sukhois are fitted with a mixture of Russian and Western systems, while Malaysia’s Hornets have previously employed the GBU-12 successfully against armed militants from the southern Philippines who had taken over the town of Lahad Datu, Sabah, in 2013.

Sabah
ESSZone sea checkpoints to increase security of Sabah
August 1, 2017, Tuesday


Quote:
LAHAD DATU: The setting up of sea checkpoints in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (ESSZone) is expected to increase the security of Sabah, particularly in preventing cross-border crime.

The commander of Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESSCom), DCP Dato’ Hazani Ghazali, yesterday said he had mentioned the proposal of setting up the sea checkpoints in ESSZone and basically this matter has been agreed to by the leadership of the national security agencies.

Hazani said the sea checkpoints will serve as centres for inspecting the ships, boats and barges that enter national waters.

“Following the inspection, a letter or document will be issued to the boats or ships if they comply with all the rules before they can enter the mainland.

Any boats or ships that fail to comply with the rules will not be able to enter the mainland and action will be taken against any boat or ship entering national waters illegally or without the document from the sea checkpoint,” he said.

According to Hazani, the setting up of sea checkpoints is among the efforts that could be implemented to further empower national security control.

Hazani said ESSCom had implemented various efforts to ensure national security is always upheld.

He said the efforts include the integrated operations enforced from time to time, to flush out illegal immigrants as well as to combat crimes.

“However, the cooperation and support of the people are necessary in ensuring that our efforts are fruitful.

“It is good for people to be busybodies and keep an eye on the activities of their neighbours or friends,” he said.

According to Hazani, by practicing the concept of busybodying, the security forces could get immediate information if their neighbours or friends are involved in criminal activities.

“By taking interest in their activities, we can not only help to arrest the individuals involved in criminal activities but also convey information to related parties if their neighbours experience any problem regarding their welfare,” he said.

Hazani added that ESSCom will remain committed in maintaining the security of the country, especially in ESSZone and will strive to ensure that the people live in peace.

More than 30,000 houses for armed forces' personnel to be built - Hishammuddin
By TASNIM LOKMAN - August 30, 2017 @ 9:29pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The Defence Ministry plans to complete building 31,000 houses for members of the armed forces from all ranks and ex-servicemen by 2030.

Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said this came under the armed forces’ family housing scheme which was being developed nationwide.

He said so far 9,000 had already been built and 78 sites nationwide including in Sabah and Sarawak had been identified for the development.

"I sincerely hope that this effort will safeguard the welfare of servicemen, ex-servicemen and their families.

"It is not a one-off agenda ... we have conducted lab study on this for the past two years and we will ensure this project is completed by 2030.

"The representatives of each military service have informed us on how many houses they need for our men and hope this will be passed on to future generations," he said at a press conference on the ministry’s housing agenda at Wisma Pewira here today.

Hishammuddin said the minsitry through Armed Forces Fund Board also planned to build more affordable houses for the servicemen and veterans under the Civil Servants 1Malaysia Housing Schemes nationwide.

He said as of July this year, the ministry had identified sites in Selangor, Johor and here for the implementation.

He said more than 5,000 affordable houses were also in the pipeline under the “Satu Anggota Satu Rumah” (One Serviceman One House) programme with several locations earmarked for the development.

He said the ministry and stakeholders were currently finalising details of construction for all housing schemes before the implementation.

He said a more detailed information on all these projects would be announced in early October.

Sabah may be meeting point for anti-terror pact
5th September, 2017
By JAMES LEONG


Quote:
SANDAKAN: Sabah may be the focal point to formalize the details of an anti-terrorism deal, between three nations bend on eliminating terrorists.

The pact between Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia will be a joint task force against security threats and may open their borders to each other to hunt down terrorists and other armed groups, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said.

Duterte said he would meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Indonesia President Joko Widodo to iron out the details of the border cooperation deal.

“We have agreed that we will talk… the three of us… We are just waiting for the right timing,” Duterte said in Davao City, Philippines over the weekend.

“In all probability, it will be like a joint task force. And I will open my borders to the Malaysian authorities and Indonesian authorities, and… they’ll be given access.

“If we are chasing someone and there is no more time, we can hit him. Even if he’s a Filipino, we can tell them ‘hit him’ or Indonesian here, we can hit him,” he added.

Duterte said the meeting may be held near the Philippine shore, in Sabah or in Jakarta.

“They are doing it already. But to formalize an agreement, we have to meet face to face and agree on an agenda for the talks,” Duterte said.

“But I said I can only, maybe, be there for about a day or two. At this time, I do not have the luxury of time because I have a serious problem here… I’ve been to Marawi several times. I intend to go there until it’s over,” he added.

Last June, the three countries kicked off joint maritime patrols to fight terrorism, piracy and other transnational crimes. They also agreed to share intelligence information and assets and establish a joint headquarters.

The joint patrols started a month after Islamic State-styled Maute terrorists laid siege to Marawi City, kidnapped dozens of civilians and torched several buildings. The successive attacks by the Maute group prompted Duterte to place the entire island of Mindanao under martial law.

More than 600 terrorists, 40 civilians, and 130 government troopers have been killed since fighting erupted last May 23.

Duterte warned that the Islamic State extremists may shore up their presence in Southeast Asia as they lose their grip over the territories they once held in the Middle East.

“The ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is being cornered into the coastal towns of Syria. They are being repelled from Syria. Once they lose mass base, they have nowhere to go and they will be killed,” Duterte said

“They will escape. And then because they have access in some countries, they will just appear just like what happened in Marawi,” he added.

Duterte warned that the ISIS would be active in predominantly Muslim cities to recruit new followers

Sea and road security checkpoints
Published on: Tuesday, November 21, 2017


Quote:
Kota Kinabalu: Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman said the Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) will establish Sea Checkpoint (SCP) and Road Checkpoint (RCP) in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (Esszone).

This is one of the measures taken to boost the overall security control as well as ensure the smoothness of socio-economic trade activities in the area.

"The focus of the SCP is to curb the entry of firearms and other cross-border crime elements which could affect the security of the State, especially in the Esszone," he said to a question by Sebatik Assemblyman Datuk Abd Muis Picho, at the State Legislative Assembly sitting, Monday.

"Esscom is now in the stage of classifying designated routes involving maritime agencies to be submitted to the Attorney-General's Chambers for gazetting."

The RCP, he said, is also going to be implemented to detect and detain illegal immigrants who are involved in militant activities. Musa said the Esszone is currently well-controlled and safe.

"This is proven with no kidnapping incident since early this year, thanks to Esscom's readiness as well as effective measures taken by it to control the Esszone.

"I am confident that Esscom, together with the Malaysian Armed Forces, Police and the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency will monitor and ready to face any possibility in the East Coast," he said.

Among the measures taken, he said, were intensive and coordinated patrolling with the Philippines and Indonesian security forces under the Trilateral Cooperative Agreement which covers land and air area.

"In Nov 7, KD Sri Gaya and the Philippine Navy's BRP Cebu conducted a joint patrol in the respective waters.

"And on Nov 8, a trilateral air patrol was conducted in the Esszone's airspace by the security forces of Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

"We hope the cooperation with our neighbouring countries will be continued to ensure safety in the waters of all three countries, especially in the Esszone."

To a supplementary question by Tamparuli Assemblyman Datuk Seri Wilfred Bumburing, Musa said Malaysian intelligence authorities have constant interaction with their counterparts in the Philippines.

"We received intelligence information with the cooperation between the Philippines and Malaysia, so that we are notified of the movement of militants," he said.

On the curfew in the Esszone which had reached its 76th phase, he said the measure was able to curb foreign negative elements from entering Sabah as well as enhancing the security control in the area.

"Since the curfew was enforced in the Esszone, there was a sudden increase in prices of goods in the southern Philippines.

"This shows that previously smuggling activities from Malaysia to southern Philippines were rampant."

While there were grouses voiced by the fishing community due to the curfew, he said, fishermen can still do their fishing activities at night provided they obtained permits from their respective District Police Headquarters.

"The issuance of permits had stabilised their income and most feel safer to catch fish.

Since the curfew was enforced in Jul 19, 2014, a total of 34,644 permits were issued to fishermen," he said.

Musa also said, tourist arrival in the Esszone was not affected due to the curfew.

"Generally, resort operators, locals, tourists and the maritime community welcome the curfew and have asked for the order to be continued in future."

On allocation, he disclosed, in total, since its inception, Esscom had received RM71.9 million for administration and RM219.1 million for development.

Meanwhile, to another supplementary question by Kapayan Assemblyman Dr Edwin Bosi on the safety of turtles in the Esszone, Musa gave his assurance that the reptile has been well taken care of.

"Even though, turtles are not under the protection by Esscom, under the request of the Tourism Ministry, the State Government has provided a RM1 million special allocation to protect turtles laying eggs on the beach.

"So, do not worry, we look after the turtles very well," he said. - Ricardo Unto

New RMAF baseset to fly high
By HIDIR REDUAN
February 25, 2018 @ 4:27pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The responsibility and duty to safeguard the nation’s security are visible on the faces of Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) officers and personnel, who are set to be relocated to the new Sendayan RMAF base in Seremban, Negri Sembilan.

Located on a 303ha land and equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, the headquarters will serve as the academy and training centre for RMAF officers and personnel nationwide.

Colonel Mohamad Noh Daim, the Kuala Lumpur RMAF airbase commander at Sungai Besi here, sees the move as timely.

He said the development and progress in areas surrounding Sungai Besi had limited the ability of RMAF officers and personnel to carry out their duties.

Noh, 56, said the progress and development had decreased the Kuala Lumpur RMAF base’s security and safety.

Set to be Sendayan RMAF base commander, Noh said the location was strategic and boosted the base’s security.

“With fewer hills and located far from the main road, the Sendayan base is not easy to infiltrate.”

He said the high-rise buildings surrounding the current airbase affected the operational safety of flights.

“The government has come up with a long-term plan to relocate the airbase to another location that is more strategic, systematic and comprehensive.

“The current base will become part of the development of the area (Kuala Lumpur) into a transportation hub.”

Noh said the facilities at the Sendayan RMAF base were more comfortable, especially the living quarters for officers and their families.

“The work environment (at the Sendayan base) is optimal, which will boost the morale and spirit of officers.”

He labelled the negative allegations by certain quarters over the relocation of RMAF officers and personnel to the Sendayan base as unfounded.

“If one goes there (to the Sendayan base), one would see a structured development.

“The relocation to Sendayan will boost businesses and trade in the area (due to officers and personnel working and staying at the base there).”

Noh said the relocation of officers and personnel from bases nationwide had been ongoing since Feb 2 and would be completed by August.

Corporal Noorfaeza Zaini, 30, was ecstatic with her transfer to the Sendayan base.

“I have no problems with being transferred and am looking forward to it,” said the mother of two, who is attached to RMAF’s Material Division.

“It is part of life and this is not the first time I am being transferred.”

She had served at airbases in Kuantan, Pahang; Jerteh, Terengganu; and Alor Star, Kedah.

Noorfaeza, from Chemor, Perak, said the relocation was made easier as her nanny for her two children, aged 2 and 5, would follow them to the Sendayan base.

Corporal Mohd Rofi Mohd Sepan, 32, who is married with two children, aged 3 and 5, gave the new base the thumbs up for its security and living quarters.

“I am happy with the living quarters and security.

“The area is conducive for children (of RMAF officers and personnel) to frolic and play while being safe, thanks to the tight security,” said Rofi who has served RMAF for 11 years.

Attached to the Administration Division, Rofi, from Masjid Tanah, Melaka, said his family was supportive.

“My wife accepts it as it is our duty to relocate to Sendayan (base). She is now working in Bangsar, and is making arrangements to find work at the new place (Sendayan).”

Equipped with 693 living quarters for RMAF officers and personnel and their families, the Sendayan base was one of eight in the country developed by 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

DPM: Sendayan base dispels negative claims
By Hidir Reduan and Rizanizam Abdul Hamid - March 19, 2018 @ 3:27pm



Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the successful construction of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) base in Sendayan and police air wing unit base in Subang dispels negative allegations against government. (File pix)

KUALA LUMPUR: The successful construction of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) base in Sendayan and police air wing unit base in Subang dispels negative allegations against government.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said that this was especially true in answering negative claims being carried in non-traditional and non-conventional media.

"The claims led to negative perceptions against our men in uniform.

"News with adverse consequences when repeated could enter the mind.

"Today's event here and the opening of the Sendayan RMAF base (in Negeri Sembilan) proves that all the news are false and mere negative assumptions that must be rejected by the people.

"Seeing is believing," he said when speaking in a speech at the official opening of the police air wing unit airbase in Subang here today.

Among those also present were Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun and Treasury Secretary-General Tan Sri Dr Mohd Irwan Serigar Abdullah.

BAE Systems will set up MRO and vocational training centre in Malaysia
By AYISY YUSOF - April 18, 2018 @ 5:09pm



(L-R) BAE Systems International Sales Director – Typhoon and Hawk, Andy Lavin and BAE Systems International Ltd South East Asia Managing Director, John Brosnan with the Eurofighter Typhoon model at the BAE Systems stand at 16th Defence Services Asia 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: BAE Systems Inc, the wholly owned US subsidiary of the British defence, security, and aerospace company BAE Systems PLC, is planning to set up a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility and a vocational training centre in Malaysia.

BAE Systems International Ltd South East Asia managing director John Brosnan said the conditional assessment would be dependent on Malaysia’s decision to choose the company’s combat aircraft, Eurofighter Typhoon for Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) multi-role combat aircraft (MRCA) programme.

“Both developments will be based on a joint-venture with local players. It will also provide economic value to the local market about five times of the value of the aircraft purchase,” he told NST Business in an exclusive interview yesterday.

Brosnan said the investment’s facility would be spent over 25 years, creating more than 20,000 high-skilled jobs for the locals including the establishment of vocational training centre for the local aerospace sector.

“We will develop the technical vocational training centre in phases over 10 years with the involvement of Bristol University and Loughborough University,” he added.

Brosnan said BAE Systems had been working with the RMAF for nearly five years to test its combat aircraft.

“Hopefully, a deal will happen soon for the Eurofighter Typhoon,” he said, adding that there is a requirement for Malaysia to upgrade its aerial surveillance capabilities.

Brosnan said the fighter jet delivery could be made in about four years, subject to the RMAF requirements and negotiations.

The fighter jet package could include the unit, support services including maintenance and repair as well as training modules for local technicians.

Malaysia has been for several years considering to replace its ageing combat fighters, Russian-made, MiG-29s, which currently are not in service.

However, the decision to acquire new 18 fighter jets has yet to materialise as the country is preparing its focuses on the 14th General Election, which will be held on May 9.

It was made to understand that the decision could only be finalised after the election with regards to potential purchase either Eurofighter Typhoon or France’s Dassault Aviation, Rafale fighter jet.

“Every country has economic pressure. Defence is a significant cost, where governments have to allocate certain spending priorities.

“That’s why we have affordable solutions whereby, rather than selling new defence equipment, we also help countries to upgrade their existing equipment with installation such as new missile system and radar,” said Brosnan.

However, he said there would come to a point where governments can’t just upgrade their defence systems.

“Malaysia is currently considering the replacement aircraft for its MRCA programme,” he opined.

He said Malaysia is certainly an important defence-military market in South East Asia for BAE Systems with over 50 years establishment in the country.

“We regard Malaysia as a first-world military customer. We are the largest international defence-equipment supplier to the Malaysian armed forces including frigates, trainer aircraft (Hawk), armed vehicles, missile systems, ground-based air-defence systems, radars and bridging systems,” he said.

BAE Systems International sales director – Typhoon and Hawk, Andy Lavin said the company provides the cheapest cost of ownership to operate the Eurofighter Typhoon.

“Currently we have over 520 units in service from eight countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar.

“The fighter jet is collaboratively developed and manufactured by BAE Systems UK, Leonardo – Aircraft Division (Italy) and Airbus Defence & Space (Germany and Spain),” he said.

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a highly capable and extremely agile multi-role combat aircraft, capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations including air policing, peace support and high intensity conflict.

“Currently we have secured over 100 additional orders with potential orders of 184 aircraft from countries including Germany, Saudi Arabia and Spain,” he said.

Lavin said Eurofighter Typhoon sales could reach 1,000 aircraft globally in the next five years, backed by on-going active campaign promotion in countries including Belgium, Finland, Poland, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Malaysia and Canada.

BAE Systems to continue partnership with CSM
By NST Business - April 16, 2018 @ 2:51pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: British defence, security, and aerospace company BAE Systems will continue its partnership with CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) by signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at the upcoming Defence Services Asia 2018 (DSA).

"As we enter into a period of global uncertainty and with the prevalence of international cybercrime, DSA 2018 presents a great opportunity to continue to foster the relationships we have with our partners here in Malaysia and across Asia,” said John Brosnan, BAE Systems managing director for South East Asia in a recent statement.

“We are confident with the industrial outlook here in Malaysia, and we believe the DSA 2018 is the best forum for us to showcase our capabilities in terms of aerospace engineering, cybersecurity and education which are all achieved through local partnerships.”

BAE Systems will also renew its commitment to the Chevening Scholarship Programme, which begun in 2012.

Since then, the firm has sponsored over 50 Malaysian post graduate students since 2012 and has remained as one of the largest contributors to the Chevening Programme in this country.

The BAE Systems exhibition at the DSA 2018 stand will feature models of the Eurofighter Typhoon, multi role combat aircraft as well as the Hawk Trainer Jet.

The Hawk is currently in service with the Royal Malaysian Air Force and Eurofighter Typhoon is being considered as the RMAF’s next fast jet fighter.

Also featured on the stand will be models of the Archer Artillery System, the 105mm and L118 Light Gun, L118 Light and BAE System’s Offshore Patrol Vessel.

One of the key highlights at the BAE Systems exhibition stand is a large interactive cyber display that will allow visitors to discover the ways in which BAE Systems Applied Intelligence is able protect Malaysia.

BAE Systems has been supporting Malaysian businesses and the Malaysian Armed Forces with trusted and proven solutions across land, sea, air and cyber defence for over 50 years from its regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

It currently employ over 400 people in Malaysia and has generated a further 7000 jobs across the country.

The DSA 2018 will run from 16th to 19th April at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition (MITEC).

Sukhoi Technical Centre Inaugurated

PASIR PUTEH: The Sukhoi technical center at the Gong Kedak air base here was officially inaugurated by RMAF Chief Jen. Roslan Saad.

The ceremony was held barely three weeks after an audit report on the project stated that it was delayed as an inexperienced and financially unsound contractor was awarded the contract to build the facility.

Defence, Enforcement and Security Industry Blueprint in the pipeline - Deputy Defence Minister
By Teoh Pei Ying - November 13, 2018 @ 3:23pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: A new type of defence industry is needed to help generate and commercialise innovation.

Deputy Defence Minister Liew Chin Tong said the practice of giving projects to defence industry companies that acted as “postmen” needed to be abolished.

“This refers to companies that acted as agents who are selling products manufactured elsewhere. We need to think of how to commercialise our own innovation.

“The ministry is drafting a Defence, Enforcement and Security Industry Blueprint and I hope that with this document we will have a clearer direction in the development of our local defence industry.

“So, our hope for the ministry is in the long run we will have a new type of defence industry which can generate and commercialise innovation.

“Although we (Malaysia) may have lagged behind compared to other countries, but with the right foundation, we are able to achieve the set direction, one step by step,” he told reporters after the Defence Ministry (Mindef) Innovation Day celebration today.

Liew said Mindef must strive to be a testpad for innovation.

“Mindef is a big ministry in terms of human resources and budgets. We need to create a conducive environment that values talent, strives for excellence and dare to test new ideas.

“For example, the Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Ministry had expressed desire to increase the energy efficiency of the country.

“Imagine the impact that we can make if the armed forces camps are pioneering efforts to transform energy use in our offices and camps,” he said.

He also pointed out that innovation efforts in the defence sector often bring spin-off to the economy as a whole.

“For example, Internet, an innovation that enables the existence of various technologies today, is the result of a program in the 1960s by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency under the US Department of Defense (correct).

“Global Positioning System (GPS) is also a result of a US military programme in the 1970s, as well as SIRI, a key feature of Iphone, is also a spin-off of the DARPA-funded Artificial Intelligence project.”

He said, in 2018, the defence expenditure in Southeast Asia was estimated to be more than US$35 billion (RM142.32 billion)., while the commercial sector, with the expansion of low cost carrier business, accelerated the activities for aerospace manufacturing, training, tourism and maintenance, repair and overhaul industries.

"The original equipment manufacturers are forecasting that by 2037, more than 4,200 new aircraft valued at US$650 billion will be delivered to this region.

"Under the 2019 Budget, Malaysia has allocated a total of RM5.9 billion for the security sector which covers defence, public order and enforcement. The investment is the security sector will involve equipping the armed forces with state-of-the-art technologies and weaponry.

"Modern security threats require Malaysia and other countries to continue to upgrade and modernise their strategic assets. We plan to make Malaysia a leading aerospace nation in Southeast Asia and an integral part of the global market," he said, and touched on Malaysian companies which were already making key aerospace products for global companies such as Airbus, Boeing, Rolls-Royce, Safran, Honeywell and Thales.

Russia offers palm oil defence offset
By Adrian David - March 29, 2019 @ 11:34am



Russia is committed to drastically increasing its purchase of palm oil from Malaysia, said Rostec State Corp international cooperation and regional policy director Viktor Kladov, after a meeting with Malaysia’s Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace exhibition (Lima) 2019.
Quote:
LANGKAWI: Russia is committed to drastically increasing its purchase of palm oil from Malaysia, said its top defence procurement official.

The palm oil purchase will entail an offset deal leading to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) disposing of its two squadrons of 18 decommissioned MiG-29N Fulcrum jets.

Russia is already assisting in refurbishing the ageing fleet of 18 Sukhoi Su-30MKM Flankers, via its local partner ATSC Corp, reportedly for RM2.2 billion — thus expanding its serviceability for another 15 years.

And it is now even looking at offering the RMAF the fourth-generation Su-35 or even its latest Su-57E (the equivalent of the United States’ F-22) if it wants to upgrade.

Rostec State Corp international cooperation and regional policy director Viktor Kladov told the New Straits Times Russia was willing to buy Malaysian palm oil in substantial amounts to improve the bilateral trade balance, with the possibility of trade-offs for arms and defence procurement and transfer of technology and job spin-offs.

“We are aware of the palm oil ban for biofuels in Europe and Russia is ever-ready to help Malaysia by buying more palm oil. At present, 90 per cent of Russia’s palm oil is imported from Indonesia and we intend to change that (in Malaysia’s favour).

“I have personally spoken with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on this matter at a private meeting with him yesterday, and applauded him for his great vision. This can lead to improved defence offset packages that can greatly benefit Malaysia,” he said in a special interview at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace exhibition (Lima) 2019 at the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre in Padang Matsirat.

Europe is the largest buyer of Malaysian palm oil after India and now even China has reduced imports of the commodity.

Kladov was a prime mover in enhancing Russia-Malaysia defence relations during Dr Mahathir’s first 22-year tenure as prime minister.

It culminated with a several hundred million dollar offset deal, involving palm oil, with Malaysia initially procuring 18 MiG-29N Fulcrum air superiority fighters in 1995.

The MiG-29N — two of which crashed in 1998 and 2005, respectively — was decommissioned in 2017 owing to high maintenance costs of RM262 million a year.

Several countries, including Bangladesh and India, are keen to buy the MiG-29N.

Subsequently, in 2003, Malaysia purchased 18 Flankers from Russia’s Irkut Corp for US$900 million (RM3.67 billion), also involving palm oil purchase.

The offset deal led to the country’s first space programme with Malaysia’s first astronaut to the International Space Station in 2007.

Owing to budgetary constraints, the RMAF has deferred its multi-role combat aircraft (MRCA) programme to 2025.

Instead, it is looking at improving on its lead-in fighter jet fleet, which is made up of the Italian Aermacchi MB339.

“In fact, Russia’s Yak 130 is similarly designed after the Aermacchi and we are prepared to trade in RMAF’s ageing fleet,” said Kladov.

He added that he also had a discussion with RMAF chief General Tan Sri Affendi Buang who was keen on strengthening and improving the serviceability of its fighter jets.

“He is all for Russia to give strong technical and maintenance support for its existing Sukhoi fleet. Affendi is not in favour of procuring too many fighter jets as Malaysia is a small maritime nation,” said Kladov.

On another matter, Kladov said the Fire and Rescue Department and the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency were interested in procuring up to eight units of Ansat, Mil Mi-8/17 and Kamov Ka-32A11DC from Russian Helicopters, a division of Rostec State Corp.

“These helicopter models, which can be traded in for the ol-der fleet of the agencies, are ideal for fire-fighting, emergency medical services, as well as search and rescue missions,” he said.
