MPA is seeking a candidate for the newly formed Maritime Space Policy & Plans Office (MSPPO) within the Operations Transformation & Plans Division (OTPD) under the Ops-Tech Cluster. The OTPD supports MPA’s mission by ensuring that policies, plans, and procedures are operationally ready to address incident and crisis scenarios as well as ensure port security and maritime safety. OTPD is also entrusted with developing future operating concepts in the multi-domain (space, air, sea, sub-sea and cyber) area of operations and translating them into operational requirements for the purpose of capability development in MPA.
Crisis scenarios include severe events caused by geopolitical risks, pandemics, natural disasters, and climate change effects, as well as major incidents such as piracies, vessel collisions and sinkings, oil/fuel/chemical spills etc. which could cause disruptions to the global supply chain and negatively impact port security and maritime safety.
To ensure that Maritime Singapore is well-prepared for crisis scenarios, there is a critical need to strengthen and future-proof our operational responses and safeguard Singapore’s national and maritime interests. The complexity of such crises necessitates capability development and collaboration across multiple domains in the assigned area of operations. Future operating concepts must leverage capabilities and sensors across multiple domains to enhance information exchange and data connectivity for situational awareness, detection of anomalies for timely intervention and effectiveness and timeliness of responses in a crisis.
