SLA deals with the sale of State land, lease renewals and lifting of title restrictions for both private entities and statutory boards. We also work in close collaboration with various agencies on projects to achieve national objectives.
SLA has completed a proof-of-concept (POC) to improve work safety and service delivery through the usage of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The adoption of this technology will be paired with advanced image analytics and machine learning to enhance operational efficacy of the inspection of State land and properties. Older buildings gazetted for conservation will also benefit from these pre-emptive checks and documentation. With the completion of this POC, SLA is currently working on the pilot deployment of UAVs on suitable State properties. Concurrently, we intend to push the boundaries by embarking on the introduction of fully autonomous and self-sufficient UAVs to aid in the management of offshore islands including St John’s Island, Kusu Island and Lazarus Island. As flying Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) is currently unprecedented in Singapore, this collaboration with the Ministry of Transport (MOT) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) will also help shape the policy for the usage of UAVs BVLOS within the country.
“By embracing and pushing technological boundaries, we believe that not only can we improve operational efficiency, we can also enhance safety and improve job satisfaction,” says Vincent Aw, Head of Land Management and project lead for the POC. “I look forward to developing more innovative solutions to help build a more future-ready SLA.”
BY EMBRACING AND PUSHING TECHNOLOGICAL BOUNDARIES, WE BELIEVE THAT NOT ONLY CAN WE IMPROVE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY, WE CAN ALSO ENHANCE SAFETY AND IMPROVE JOB SATISFACTION.VINCENT AW
