Are you looking forward to NDP 2017.

In just a few weeks away, NDP 2017 will be upon us . Other than the traditional Parade and Ceremony ( P&C), the Dynamic Defence Display (D3)  will be back. Given the heighten threats we faced today, the D3 segment, put together by the Singapore Armed Forces and the Home Team, underscores Singapore's commitment and ability to defend itself against security threats.

 Here is a sneak peek of what to expect during the show

50 Years of National Service (NS50)

We had the SG50 celebrations 2 years back and this year, the focus is on NS50. With 2000 participants from 31 marching contingents, there will be a special tribute to national servicemen in recognition of their contributions to NS. As an NSman myself, it will be a segment where I would look back in pride. Commanding the parade would be Lieutenant Colonel ( LTC) (NS) Lim Wee Tee.

The F-15SG fighter aircraft will be the airshow to look up to. They will perform the bomb burst during the P & C Segment. Traditional elements such as the 21-Gun Presidential Gun Salute , the Feu-de-Joie, as well as the State Flag Flypast flown by RSAF Chinook helicopter will be back of the show.

D3 Segment

After a hiatus of 2 years, the D3 segment will be back. We last saw the D3 Segment in the 2014 parade and were duly impressed. This year, the D3 will be back in a bigger format and showcased in two parts. The first part will be the display of technologically-advanced assets from the Singapore Army, the Republic of Singapore Navy , and the RASF, The 2nd part will showcase Singapore's whole-of-government and community approach in tackling security threats through a multi-agency counter terrorism display show for the first time in NDP D3. It depicts how cyber security agencies deal with cyber-attacks, and how the SAF and the Home Team overcome multiple terrorist threats through swift and seamless coordination.

With over 500 participants and 50 assets, this will be the largest number in NDP history. It will be hard not to go Wow over it.
