DTI and defence tech company to build Counter Threat COE in Thailand

According to a recent report, a UK security and defence company is set to build a Counter Threat Centre of Excellence (COE) in Thailand to analyse any threats that the country faces.

For this purpose, the company has signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Thai government organisation Defence Technology Institute (DTI) and a local representative group corporation company.

Under the agreement, the UK company will work in close collaboration with DTI to evaluate and assess the threat landscape faced in Thailand, in addition to developing policy and doctrine, and to evaluating the optimal training and technology needs.

The UK defence tech firm’s CEO stated that the Centre of Excellence will play an extremely important role in creating capability and devising responses to dynamic and evolving threats faced by Thailand and its neighbours.

The CEO expressed that he was honoured to work with the DTI and cannot wait for his company to demonstrate the world leading experience, knowledge and technology it can deploy to enhance the safety and security of Thailand and its people.

The new facility will bring together counter-terror, counter improvised explosive device (C-IED) and counter unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS) facilities to c.

The Counter Threat COE will provide advanced training and equipment instruction to Thai security personnel.

It will also help conduct research and development into emerging counter threat technologies by closely working with military partners and leading academic institutions.

Operating as a primary hub, the Counter Threat COE will support the development and implementation of new policies, concepts, strategies and doctrines to promote counter threat adaptation and operations.

Last month, a report noted that DTI was going to digitalise Armed Forces’ capabilities.

As the Royal Thai Army seeks to digitalise its capabilities for network-centric operations a telecommunications company and the Thai DTI signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) 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 Thales and DTI to collaborate closely in research and development 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 Personnel 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 telecom firm will progressively transfer technology and knowledge to DTI, enabling, in 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 telecom firm supports the long-term ambitions of the Thai government to grow its capabilities in the high-end digital domain.

This agreement further underscores Thales’ commitment to supporting Thailand 4.0, with one of its objectives being the development of local Thai capabilities in the defence industry, through knowledge and technology transfer.

The telecom firm is always looking to empower local capabilities in the defence industry so that they may continually develop technologies and take these innovations to greater heights.
