Defence Science Revealed  

Welcome to Singapore’s largest defence science exhibition, a partnership between DSO National Laboratories and Science Centre Singapore. Defence Science Revealed uncovers the amazing science behind many military marvels, and provides a glimpse of the many game-changing solutions on the battlefield. Be immersed and intrigued by an impressive line-up of multimedia exhibits, interactive games and exciting learning workshops for schools in three intriguing zones.

Surveillance and Stealth

The Military success depends on the dual strategies of “Hide and Seek” by using smart camouflaging techniques, electro-optics, infra-red and radars. This zone reveals the critical use of stealth technologies to evade detection, acquire intelligence and infiltrate enemy lines. There is also an interactive Out of Sight exhibit that allows the players to search for targets through the “eyes” of the visual, infrared and hyperspectral cameras. Plus, learn about how radars can make images too!

   

    

Science of Flight

This fascinating zone will demystify the science of aerodynamics as interactive experiments illustrate the principles of lift, drag and shockwaves. Visitors can even experience how the shape of an aircraft’s wings affect its lifting force by being in a little “wind tunnel”.

Armour and Protection

Discover how composite armour and explosive reactive armour can protect a tank from high-explosive anti-tank rounds. One of the exhibits will also feature a life-size tank with a multimedia display of how the tank crew fights on the battlefield!
