Thailand’s Defence Technology Institute to digitalise Armed Forces’ capabilities


The digital revolution has opened up a world of possibilities for armies by allowing them to use the best technology to outsmart opponents. Precise and secure digital radio communication is essential for soldiers in the battlefield to communicate critical information, make quick decisions, react to future threats and get the edge in the battlefield.


As the Royal Thai Army seeks to digitalise its capabilities for network-centric operations, Thai Defence Technology Institute (DTI) have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with a key industrial partner to further enhance collaboration in the Communications domain for military vehicles application.

The MoA follows a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in September 2017 which paved the way for DTI to research and develop related to air defence and digital communications systems. With this new agreement, the first common project for all parties will be dedicated to the upgrade of the Royal Thai Army’s existing fleet of Armored Personal Carrier (APC).


The MoA focuses on upgrading the APCs with a C5I (Computerised, Command, Control, Communications and Combat Information) operational solution, integrating both VHF and HF combat net radios, a Battle Management System (BMS) for tactical command and control, and vehicle electronics integration. To develop expertise in Thailand, the partner will progressively transfer technology and knowledge to DTI, enabling, at the end, the capability for Thailand to design, integrate and validate C5I systems on any local platform.


Coupled with training courses focused on programming, robust digital vehicle architecture, manufacturing, maintenance and services, the partner supports the long-term ambitions of the Thai government to grow its capabilities in the high-end digital domain. This agreement further underscores DTI commitment to supporting Thailand 4.0, with one of its objectives being the development of Thailand’s capabilities in the defence industry, through knowledge and technology transfer.


DEFENSE & SECURITY 2019 will also present outstanding opportunities to network, share knowledge, and initiate long-term partnerships based on mutual trust and respect. Business opportunities will be outstanding and provide a special window of opportunity for international manufacturers, including the ASEAN defence and internal security procurement markets. The region now comprises one of the fastest growing areas in the world.
