Part of its integrated security efforts at this year’s River Hongbao – an annual Lunar New Year event at Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, AETOS adopted a multi-pronged approach by utilising both ground patrol and drone surveillance to manage crowds and maintain public safety at the iconic venue.
The AI-powered drone monitored movements in the crowd and sought to detect potential threats to enable effective crowd control and timely incident management. It utilises algorithms to determine crowd density from real-time data, preventing overcrowding and ensuring the safety and comfort of attendees at the event.
“We are glad to be securing one of Singapore’s most celebrated festivals, among many others. Being a trusted events security partner of choice, AETOS will continue working closely with our clients to integrate innovative technologies for improved operational efficiencies and enhanced security outcomes,” said Mr Patrick Koh, Vice President of Sales & Customer Success.

Singapore, 19 January 2023 – AETOS conducted a table-top exercise (TTX) and ground deployment exercise (GDX) with established institutes of higher learning, Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), to help validate and enhance their operational readiness in times of adversities and emergencies.
Tailored according to SIM and SUSS’s desired business continuity outcomes, these exercises aimed to identify and mitigate risks in both institutions’ contingency plans when dealing with security incidents, such as an adversarial breach and attack within the compound.
“Having robust response strategies and protocols are critical to protecting people and organisations from the catastrophic impact of unexpected events and hostile actors. We are pleased to partner forward-thinking organisations like SIM and SUSS, who are proactive in testing out their multi-agency response, and strengthening their overall emergency preparedness against such attacks,” said Mr Vincent Soh, Vice President of Integrated Training.
