Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN)

Public Sector

Singapore is a maritime nation. Throughout Singapore's history, our island's prosperity has been inextricably linked to the sea. The seas have always been our economic lifelines. Every day, merchant vessels transport vital essentials such as food, energy and supplies that support our nation's growth.

The Republic of Singapore Navy is our nation's first line of defence. We protect Singapore's sea lines of communications and contribute to regional peace and security. 

In peacetime, this mission involves keeping a sharp eye and maintaining continuous surveillance on the Singapore Strait, forming a vanguard against sea robberies, piracy, terrorism and unwanted incursions.

To do this, the RSN works closely with internal and external maritime agencies, as well as the wider international community. Keeping the seas safe and secure will allow our maritime nation to go on flourishing, and our maritime region to continue growing.

In wartime, the RSN will work to secure a swift and decisive victory over any enemy at sea.

But we are not just a fighting force; we are a diplomatic one as well. We sail across the seas, exercising with other navies and visit foreign ports. We take part in international operations for peace support, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. By co-operating with like-minded nations and being a responsible member of the international community, the RSN is able to not just defend our nation's every day, but also the world's every day.
