It is typical for certain Malaysian politicians to incite emotions without substantiating their claims. It is also quite routine for them to embellish half truths with exaggerated claims.

If airspace violations are true, then it shud be investigated by both parties providing relevant info backed up by evidence.

I am sure RSAF takes every precaution not to violate Malaysian airspace.

Are perhaps the M'sian are conveniently treating visiting US planes (esp those Vipers and Eagles) flying into Singapore as RSAF planes.

Mind you, the Viper and Eagles are already flown by RSAF so.....

yup, investigation should be done by both parties.
However those politician should not play with stupid political stunt.
Until now they were not able to provide concrete prove that RSAF violate Malaysian Airspace.

How hard it is to provide proof if RSAF always violates Malaysian Airspace.

Another question is Malaysian Airspace definition is deference from Singaporean Airspace definition?

I'm not supporting either side just want to know the truth.

P/S: I'm a Malaysian. Let hope both Malaysian and Singaporean not too emo in such issue. biggrin.gif

If the intrusion is really true, why RMAF never scramble to intercept the intrusion? They are welcome to intercept or even engage the intruder from which ever air force.

Depends on the definition of intrusion. Supposedly we stray across for about say, 10 secs, enough time to scrabble an alert bird?

Noted quite a number of improvements in the MY F-18D upgrades beyond the atflir.

- APX-111 Combined Interrogator/Transponder. Compatible with IFF mode 1,2, 3/A, C, 4 and S with future 5. For transponder mode can do 1,2,3/A, C(altitude) and secure 4. Uses Mode S beacon system that has a combined datalink and secondary surveillance radar (SSR) system that provides air surveillance incl air-ground data link and better selective interrogation.

- Joint mission planning system (JMPS) with UPC (unique planning component) + GPS. Allows unit-level mission planning for all phases of flight ops + downloading of mission data to e-data transfer devices to a/c & weapons. Covers JMPE mated with a UPC that is required for specific weapons, comms devices & moving map display.

- Tactical aircraft moving map capability (TAMMAC) with terrain awareness warning system (TAWS). Can show aircraft position + targets, threats, terrain features, planned mission flight path, no fly zones, safe bases and other objects with contour line, slope shading, dynamic elevation banding, threat inter-visibility, fultural features, variable scaling and overlays. TAMMAC also allows display of fire support coordination measures, vertical obstructions and digital aeronautical flight information file (DAFIF) info. Looks like good sit awareness.

- AN/ALR-67(V)2 hot quad receiver + software updates. The RWR has 4 spiral high band antennas which provide 360 RF coverage, 4 wideband + high band quandrant receiver amplifiers, 1 low band array + receiver for 360 low band coverage as well. 1 super heterodyne receiver for signal analysis, 2 CPU, 1 ADU + 1 control unit. Hot quad = new amplifier with higher gain + lower noise to improve pulse + CW emitter detection range.

- ATFLIR to be housed on the left fuselage is a gen 3 system combining 640x480 staring focal plane array operating in 3-5 micrometer band with EO sensor uses a CCD focal plan array in 0.5-0.9 micrometer range (previous gen in 2 pods rather than 1).

Good hardware.

But issue will be if RMAF can exploit all the capabilities of the new systems and
use them proficiently.

My sentiments exactly.

There is a certain pattern with regards to M'sia -> Singapore tiffs. The politicians from Malaysia seem to think that it is enough to make accusations and expect that Singapore will have to provide the evidence to defend themselves. As if that's how the world works rolleyes.gif

Maybe this is just some sly attempts to gain access to our radar pictures ... ninja.gif

Malaysian delegation views Navantia OPV

David Ing

Malaysia has followed up its initial interest in Navantia's 99 m offshore patrol vessel (OPV) design with an official visit to the company's Puerto Real shipyard near Cadiz.

A delegation led by the Secretary General of the Malaysian Ministry of Defence (MoD), Ismail bin Haji Ahmad, was shown the second of four Guaiqueri-class POVZEE (Patrullero OceŠnico para la Vigilancia de la Zona Econůmica Exclusiva) ships on order for the Venezuelan Navy.

Malaysia is seeking to acquire up to six ships with combatant capabilities under its Second-Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV) programme. Local shipbuilder Boustead Naval Shipyard, which received a letter of intent from the MoD towards the end of 2010, is looking for an international design and technology partner.

Navantia has offered a design based on the POVZEE; rival contenders include BAE Systems (with a larger version of its 90-m OPV), Damen Schelde (proposing its SIGMA design), DCNS (Gowind family) and ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (K130 corvette variant).

The state-owned Spanish shipbuilder told Jane's on 20 June that it expects to hear the MoD's decision soon. Three other nations - Australia, Qatar and South Africa - have also sent representatives to Spain to view the POVZEE build programme.

The Guaiqueri-class OPV seen by the Malaysian delegation, Warao (PC 22), was launched in October 2009 and is undergoing sea trials off Cadiz prior to transfer to Venezuela. The last of the four vessels - previously known as the Caribe class - is scheduled for commissioning in 2012.

Malaysian navy holds annual drills in South China Sea

Dzirhan Mahadzir JDW Correspondent
  Kuala Lumpur

The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) began its annual OSTEX 2011 sea-training exercise on 15 July in the East Malaysian portion of the South China Sea, close to the disputed Spratly Islands.

The week-long exercise, scheduled to end on July 21, involves 11 RMN ships, including the frigate KD Lekiu , submarines KD Tunku Abdul Rahman and KD Tun Abdul Razak , corvette KD Lekir , four patrol vessels and two minehunters.

The RMN will also deploy two Super Lynx and two Fennec helicopters, while the Royal Malaysian Air Force is deploying its F/A-18 Hornets, Sukhoi Su-30MKMs and Beechcraft 200T maritime patrol aircraft.

The RMN said the exercise's objective was not only to test its capabilities but also to display "the RMN's presence in the South China Sea as an indication of its vigilance in guarding the nation's water".

The RMN previously held 3 OSTEX annual exercises in the Malacca Straits, Peninsular Malaysia portion of the South China Sea and East Malaysian portion of the South China Sea.

In 2010 budgetary constraints meant a single exercise was held in the East Malaysian portion of the South China Sea - as is occurring this year.

The choice of venue is partly due to the basing of the RMN submarines in the area and their ongoing integration into fleet operations. However, the dispute over the Spratly Islands has also been of concern to the RMN, which has five outposts in the islands to reinforce Kuala Lumpur's territorial claims.

RMN sources said that this year's exercise was planned in 2010 and was not in response to recent tensions between China and its South China Sea neighbours over the islands.

Malaysia drafts biological weapons bill

Posted: 19 July 2011 1721 hrs

QUOTE
KUALA LUMPUR: The government has drafted a biological weapons bill that will be a part of Malaysia's legislative framework in ensuring the effective implementation of biological weapons convention, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak said.

The prime minister said the government was confident that the resulting legal framework would facilitate a secure and safe regime in handling hazardous biological materials.

At the same time, it would ensure that the requirements did not short change and demotivate life sciences researchers, advocates and business entities in the country, he said in his speech at the opening of the three-day International Congress on Biosecurity, Biosafety and Biodefence 2011, here on Tuesday.

His text of speech was read out by Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Najib also said the government was also seeking input and feedback on how it could accelerate biotechnology development while ensuring that biosafety and biosecurity concerns were addressed and taken into account.

He said that besides detection of disease outbreak as well as up-to-date laboratory analysis, emergency response and communication systems, there was also a need to put in place international collaboration to effectively combat bio threats.

He admitted that the country's bio defence science and response capabilities needed improvements, saying there was a "striking insufficiency in vaccines and therapeutics."

Najib also called on countries to identify appropriate methods, plans and procedures in establishing and executing defensive measures against either natural occurrence or attacks using biological agents.

"Bio defence responsiveness is a national and international security matter as bio threat could take place at any time," he noted.

He added that although no state had used a biological weapon in battle since the end of World War II, a number of subnational groups had attempted to acquire and use such weapons in attacks against civilians.
