A small speedboat is seen charging towards Singapore and shows no signs of stopping. In no time at all, the island nation's security agencies come together and respond to this threat; quickly neutralising it.
This was one of the scenarios at this year's Exercise Highcrest that tested the Singapore Maritime Crisis Centre which coordinates and manages the whole-of-government response to such maritime security threats.
Held from 16 to 22 Oct, the exercise involved national agencies such as the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN), Singapore Police Force (SPF) and Singapore Civil Defence Force.
