The "total defence" campaign aims to bring Singaporeans together to deal will national threats and challenges, including global terrorism or outbreaks of viruses such as Sars.

The campaign will kick off in 2010 and run for two years.

Until now, the DSTA has handled media planning and buying in-house.
