Singapore, Australia Conduct Joint CBRE Exercises


Singapore and Australia Conduct Bilateral CBRE Exercise

The Singapore Armed Forces' (SAF) Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosives (CBRE) Defence Group and the Australian Defence Force's (ADF) Incident Response Regiment (IRR) successfully conducted a bilateral CBRE exercise in Holsworthy Barracks, Sydney from 31 Oct to 1 Nov 07.

This is the 4th time that the SAF and the ADF have conducted this annual bilateral CBRE exercise. This year's exercise scenario focused on responses to a clandestine laboratory suspected of making chemical and radiological devices, and allowed both armed forces to enhance and sharpen their preventive and response capabilities in working together to counter CBRE threats.

The exercise also facilitated the sharing of operational knowledge and strengthened the close relationship and commitment between both countries in combating the proliferation of CBRE material.

The SAF CBRE Task Force was led by the Commanding Officer of 39th Singapore Combat Engineer Battalion, LTC Jason Tan.
