Science and Engineer Importance to Singapore

Singapore has boosted its water supply through water-recycling and also increased its land area by reclaiming land, all feats accomplished by engineers. And engineering will continue to be important for Singapore's future, as the country works towards becoming a smart nation and overcoming its lack of resources

Air Force, NASA to develop radiation-hardened ARM processor for next-generation space computing


Military & Aerospace Electronics:

"U.S. government space researchers want industry to develop a next-generation radiation-hardened, general-purpose, multi-core processor within the next four years to meet on-board computing needs of future manned spacecraft and space robots.

Officials of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., issued the final solicitation Monday for the High Performance Spaceflight Computing (HPSC) Processor Chiplet program for NASA and U.S. Air Force manned and unmanned spacecraft.

This four-year project is expected to deliver a next-generation rad-hard space processor based on the ARM processor architecture to provide optimal power-to-performance for upgradeability, software availability, ease of use, and cost."
