This includes an order from Verizon for the supply of iDirect satellite routers.
Our intelligent sensors have been deployed to provide a highly effective solution against physical intrusion into critical facilities such as airports, transportation hubs and high-end property developments. Meanwhile, these intelligent sensors have also been used to enable smart nation application, for example in the management of green building and estates, improving the quality of our living environment through more efficient use of energy. In 1Q2016, new orders received include a contract to implement green lighting management for a residential estate in the region.
We continue to receive much interest in TeLEOS-1, Singapore’s first commercial Earth Observation Satellite developed and constructed by ST Electronics. In the quarter, we unveiled high-quality images taken of iconic locations including Changi Airport, Sentosa Island and Singapore Sports Hub in Singapore as well as the Panama Canal at the recent Singapore Airshow 2016 and the Global Space and Technology Convention 2016.
Advanced Electronics & ICT Solutions

These contracts include provision of Intelligent Security Management System, Operations, Maintenance Support as well as advanced info-communication and sensor systems and services, supply chain managed services and maintenance for network infrastructure to government agencies and commercial businesses. For instance, Telematics Wireless, a subsidiary focused on smart city applications, has been selected to deploy its T-light™ Pro streetlight control and monitoring system across the Borough of Southend-on-Sea in the United Kingdom which includes some 14,500 Light Control Units (LCU), system gateways and a management control solution.
