The Republic of Singapore Air Force is upgrading its fleet of 20 Boeing AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopters with new mission systems to enhance the helicopter's survivability and improve its mission capability.

The upgrading programme involves equipping the AH-64D with a Helicopter Integrated Electronic Warfare System (HIEWS) to enhance survivability and SATCOM for more robust communications, Singapore Government issued a press statement today.

The upgrading programme is expected to complete over the next few years, the statement added.
