Mohamed Bin Mohamed Jadi joined SMRT in 1987 as a Technical Officer in Comms Maintenance. He became involved in product development two years later. The idea for STARiS was hatched in 1994 but was not developed till much later as the data line that runs through the entire train length required for STARiS was not available then. Subsequently, this was included in the design of all new trains starting from the second generation trains, and added to our first generation train fleet during their mid-life upgrade. After all the required systems were in place, STARiS came into use.
