Magazine Description

In this issue

The launch of the Army 21 Vision at the start of 1999 marks a new chapter in the SAF's development as we move towards the new millennium. In this and future issues of POINTER, the Army 21 Vision will be presented under three sub-themes: Positioning the Army for the New Millennium; Impact of Technology and Trends in Future Training and Logistics. We begin the first installment with the theme, 'Positioning the Army for the New Millennium'. The first article, The Revolution in Military Affairs: Technological Solutions for Budget-Tight and Manpower-Scarce Armed Forces, by Professor Lui Pao Chuen, Chief Defence Specialist, highlights the importance of innovation to counter the challenges posed by budget and manpower constraints. It also prescribes the need to realise the potential in information warfare, human resources and unconventional modes of operation. The second article, Rising to Army 21 Adding Value, Holding Values, by BG Desmond Kuek, posits a set of seven competing demands and command challenges to be reconciled to help achieve the Army 21 Vision.
