11 February 2020

Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems has established a subsidiary in Singapore to provide cyber-defence solutions to the country and surrounding region.

According to Rafael, its new Singaporean company - named Spear Dome - will "interlace" a range of technologies to provide cyber-defence capabilities across sectors including defence, energy, utilities, and transport. It will also seek to leverage technologies such as big data analytics and artificial intelligence.

Rafael said the new company will be positioned to develop local technologies and intellectual property, as well as become integrated into Rafael's wider cyber-defence capabilities in Israel and other countries. These capabilities include Rafael's Cyber Dome concept, which is described by the company as a "holistic suite of cyber-defence technologies tailored to meet specific customer requirements".
