Singapore Navy Recognizes Paracounsellors for Their Service

On 15 Jan, 12 paracounsellors from the Republic of Singapore Navy received awards recognising their service from Guest of Honour, Dr Osman Bin Maliki at the Biennial Paracounsellors Appreciation Event held at The Chevrons.

 ME3 Ching Yeow Song was one of three personnel awarded the Distinguished Service Award. This is in recognition of the zeal he displayed as a paracounsellor to inmates in the detention barracks.

ME3 Ching felt that although paracounselling is no easy feat, the gratification comes when you are able to help troubled individuals mend their ways.

 “There have been occasions when the client would not turn over a new leaf despite multiple counselling sessions,” reminisced ME3 Ching. “However, once they realise that we genuinely care for them, they would be motivated to mend their ways and it feels terrific to know that you have made a difference in someone’s life”.

“I strongly encourage those who have a heart to serve to come forward and render their assistance. Although your contribution and commitment may not see immediate results, it will definitely reap a harvest in the long run,” shared ME3 Ching.

At the end of the event, a new cloth badge for paracounsellors was unveiled.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
