TAGS: ETTC KOMC SN
SUBJECT: RESULTS OF BLUE LANTERN CHECK ON LICENSE 05-1001774

REF: STATE 131538

1. Per reftel, Post made inquiries to confirm the Republic
of Singapore Navy's (RSN) order for monitor parts listed in
the reftel license application.

2. An RSN representative verified that that the monitor
parts were ordered from Singapore Technologies (ST)
Electronics to replace faulty parts in the Barco 21" color
monitor (Barco MPRD 9651; P/N: V9507823). The RSN
representative explained that the Navy owned many Barco
monitors and that the continued high demand for this product,
including required replacement parts, was due to
age-prolonged use.

3. ST Electronics confirmed the RSN's order for monitor
parts. ST Electronics is the electronics and communications
division of ST Engineering, a publicly listed company in
which Temasek, the Singapore Government's holding company
owns a majority interest. In addition to its other
businesses, ST Engineering handles many if not most of the
Singapore Armed Forces procurement contracts. Post is not
aware of any ties to embargoed parties, and is confident that
ST Electronics is a responsible party in this transaction.
