Singapore, 03 September 2019 – AETOS has signed a Teaming Agreement with TRD Singapore, a global CUAS equipment manufacturer and solution supplier, to collaboratively provide Counter Unmanned Aircraft Systems (CUAS) services as a safeguard against the threat of malicious drones.
With these added capabilities, AETOS will be the first in Singapore to provide a full-suite of end-to-end Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) services. The full spectrum of operations ranges from security and aerial surveillance, to built environment and safety inspections, and CUAS services.
Mr Alfred Fox, Chief Executive Officer of AETOS, said, “AETOS strongly believes in the selection of best-in-class and future-ready technologies that would strengthen our ops-tech capabilities and meet our clients’ specific needs. Through this partnership with TRD, AETOS aims to enhance its suite of security solutions, and to also complement the authorities in their efforts to enhance public safety and deal with security threats posed by unauthorised drones.”
Under the agreement, AETOS officers will undergo rigorous training by TRD Singapore to become CUAS-proficient and operationally ready to support the authorities in various deployments, such as the protection of critical infrastructure and major public events.
Mr Sam Ong, Managing Director of TRD Singapore, said, “Countering the threats caused by errant drones is becoming an increasing concern for security forces worldwide. By leveraging on our tested and proven home-grown CUAS solution, AETOS can now effectively detect drones and even locate its operators. Appropriate measures could then be taken.”

Spirits were high today at Jurong Lake Gardens as the AETOS senior management team, corporate employees, and trainees alike volunteered at Jurong Lake Gardens to help keep the area litter-free.
As part of a renewed focus on corporate social responsibility, this project is one of several geared towards environmental protection. Under this new initiative, in partnership with the National Parks Board, volunteers from across AETOS will come together once a month to help ensure the cleanliness of the park.
In a brief speech to the assembled volunteers, Mr Alfred Fox, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, said, “At the heart of volunteering lies a sense of civic-mindedness and the desire to give back to society. We want our people to internalize these values and uphold them during the course of their work each day. This is #AETOS Strong – when our efforts towards safety and security go beyond our clients and responsibilities, and are extended towards the communities we live in as well.”
AETOS strongly believes that reducing our environmental impact is important to the continued effectiveness and sustainability of our business.

AETOS was the event security service provider for the Singapore Police Force at the recent Shangri-La Dialogue, hosted by the International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS). From 31 May to 2 June, over 350 Auxiliary Police Officers (APOs) and 80 Security Officers (SOs) carried out security screening, access control, and traffic management duties at and around the vicinity of the hotel.
Patrick Koh, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, said “We are pleased to work together again with the Police as the preferred security partner for the Shangri-La Dialogue. The presence of our officers on the ground assures that this significant event can proceed smoothly.”
Initiated in 2002, the Shangri-La Dialogue is a multilateral Asian security forum aimed at fostering defence diplomacy and regional security cooperation. The summit typically hosts ministers, heads of state, and top-ranking defence officials from across Southeast Asia and beyond. Notably, this year’s Dialogue marked the first time since 2011 that a Chinese defence chief has been present.
