Request for Proposal (RFP 2201)

"Utilizing Emerging Technology to Develop Coastal and Inland Datasets to Support Coastal Protection Effort"

PUB has launched a Request-for- Proposal (RFP) seeking innovative proposals on the use of emerging technologies, such as machine learning, sensors and crowdsourced data for the collection and analysis of coastal and inland datasets to support PUB in the formulation of coastal protection measures.

This call is open to Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs), public sector entities and private sector companies based locally in Singapore.

RFP 2201
Sea level rise poses an existential threat to Singapore and coastal cities across the world. Based on the 2nd National Climate Change Study (V2) for Singapore, the mean sea level in Singapore is projected to rise by about 1 meter by year 2100, compared with the baseline period of 1980 to 2009. PUB, as the national coastal protection agency is developing plans to safeguard the nation’s coastal areas against rising sea levels and extreme rainfall.
This RFP is a part of PUB’s research programme on coastal protection and flood management to support the development of adaptation solutions that are effective, multi-functional, adaptive and sustainable. The RFP focuses on using emerging technologies to collect coastal and inland datasets of Singapore’s coastal processes.​
This Thematic RFP hence solicits proposals in the following areas:

  • Focus Area 1: Establish proof-of-concept for the feasibility of real-time, remote, and low-maintenance sensors, such as radar and satellite-based sensors, for PUB’s long-term monitoring of Singapore’s wave and current.

  • Focus Area 2: Develop an automated framework to quantify ship wake contribution in Singapore’s nearshore wave field, including a machine learning methodology to process vessel transiting information and nearshore wave data.​

  • Focus Area 3: Establish proof-of-concept for the feasibility of using opportunistic Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) footages, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with remote sensors and citizen-sourced smartphone images to provide automated and reliable estimate of the areal extent and depth of inland and coastal flooding.​​

  • More details on the RFP 2201 can be found in the ​Fact Sheet.
