RSAF50@Heartlands at Jurong East, the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s fifth and final Golden Jubilee celebration at the heartlands, will be held on Saturday, 26 May and Sunday, 27 May 2018 from 10 am to 9 pm.
Watch Troopers in Action
A highlight of RSAF50@Heartlands at Jurong East will be the Counter-Unmanned Aerial System Demonstration. This showcase will demonstrate how the RSAF’s Force Protection Trooper respond to incursions by unauthorised drones into military airbases.
For the first time, the public will be able to witness how troopers take down intruding drones using a jammer gun and drone catcher. This action is taken to protect RSAF airbases and ensure the safety of aircraft operating from the bases.
The Counter-Unmanned Aerial System demonstration will be held at 11.30 am and 2 pm on both days of the RSAF50@Heartlands at Jurong East event.
