Weight distribution is an important aspect of a backpack’s functionality. A well-designed backpack should function to carry loads effectively, which means that the load carrier is not fatigued unnecessarily and the carrier can perform his tasks without unnecessary impediment from the backpack. Our partner, Kroko’s weight distribution system allows the majority of the weight to be transferred to the hip region where it should be. It is also a modular system which works with plate carriers and war belts, enabling users to adapt our backpacks to any MOLLE compatible plate carriers, vests or war belts.
We will be showcasing Kroko’s backpack at Milipol Asia Pacific 2019, on 2-4 April 2019 at SANDS Expo, stand no. 2726.
Until recent times, most life preservers and life vests are not modular in nature. Military or law enforcement officers have the luxury of adding flotation devices to their plate carriers. Sea border patrol officers and sailors unfortunately are stuck with life vests that have predetermined pockets and designs. Our partner, Kroko’s new maritime vest is a laser cut MOLLE compatible platform which allows users to attach pouches and equipment to suit their work. The laser cut platform allows for good ventilation if there are no pouches or equipment mounted. The main flotation device can be activated via 3 modes, automatic via pressure difference sensor, automatic via pull tabs and manual via oral inflation.
We will be showcasing Kroko’s inflatable maritime tactical life vest at Milipol Asia Pacific 2019, on 2-4 April 2019 at SANDS Expo, stand no. 2726.
Force 21 participated in the inaugural Counter Terrorism Expo 2018 (CTAX) at Marina Bay Sands, in December 2018. This is an expo targeted at law enforcement and security agencies to combat terrorism. Force 21 showcased its technological solutions such as Briefcam as well as the Flame Resistant Uniforms that is being deployed by the elite units in the Singapore Police Force. We also showcased products such as the modular ballistic vests deployed by the Croatian Special Forces as well as the new maritime tactical life vest and some of our partner’s load carriage solutions. We had a blast showcasing our solutions to the local agencies such as DSTA and many others!
FiTSA had designed an Electronic IPPT system to create ease of use for the conducting Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) unit to ensure seamless flow of data with end to end solutions. From in-processing of servicemen i.e. allocating their bibs, to getting their completed IPPT results i.e. out-processing, our EIPPT system can be specially customised to suit the requirements of the end user. The entire system is modular in nature and the number of units can be varied to suit the different operation requirements of the unit.
This is one of many innovative traits that Force 21 set forth to do!

Singapore has designated 2019 as the year Towards Zero Waste. South West Community Development Council had planned the annual South West CDC Eco Day Out on 27 January 2019. Residents learned ways to reduce their waste through interactive showcases and hands-on “Zero Waste” themed activities. Residents can also share their suggestions towards conceptualisation of the new Eco Plan South West – South West District’s sustainability masterplan for the next decade. Guest of Honour Dr Amy Khor (Senior Minister of State, Ministry of the Environment & Water Resources) and Ms Low Yen Ling (Mayor of South West District) were there to present the Eco Awards and South West Public Health Awards.
Our Events team supported this meaningful event in logistics support, conceptualization of event concept / theme, design of backdrop and the launch mechanism. We are elated with the great turnout. Towards Zero Waste!
Our Homeland Security team clinched a tender from the Ministry of Home Affairs, Singapore Prison Service last month. We were engaged to design, develop, install and integrate a fully operational Video Surveillance System on top of their existing VSS at the housing for prison staffs. The contract includes a 5 years comprehensive maintenance as well. It is an under-going project right now.
Our second CSR activity with the senior residents from Chua Chu Kang Zone 2 RC happened on 1 March 2019. It was a fitness-themed event, where we had planned a workout session, nutrition talk, carnival games & a buffet lunch. It was great to be greeted with familiar faces since we last met the seniors in July 2018, where we brought them to the Woodlands food factories to shop and nibble.
So we started the morning by re-introducing our staff volunteers to the seniors, we had small talks and proceed to the multi-purpose hall at Chua Chu Kang Community Club to kick start our workout session. FiTSA, our health & fitness arm, is the appointed Health Promotion Board “Move It, Feel Young” training provider. Our instructor conducted a low intensity aerobics class suited for elderly.
Next up is a nutrition talk by our FiTSA Head, Roy Chan. He talked about eating a balance diet, introducing HPB’s ‘My Healthy Plate’, the nutrients that each type of food provides, etc. He also added physical activity recommendation suited for the seniors. The last segment before we enjoy lunch are carnival games. These new carnival games are owned by our Events team. There were 5 game stations with prizes to be won. “Jungle Fire” – throw a ball and hit 1 animal stand to win, “Meerkat Speed” – toss a ring to catch a meerkat stand and win, etc. The seniors are all very eager to try their skills and luck at the games. At the end of the session, there were many seniors carrying bagful of goodies with a wide grin.
Our staff volunteers are elated to hear positive feedback from the seniors on this CSR activity that we had organised. The seniors are very appreciative of the time and effort we had dedicated to them. And they look forward to meeting us in June!
