GROUP URGES PHILIPPINES TO ACQUIRE U.S.-MADE UAVS

MANILA - The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) needs unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). US Pinoys for Good Governance (USP4GG), a group of businessmen and philanthropists, are urging President Benigno Aquino III to request UAVs from the Obama administration.

These unmanned aircraft will help the Philippines meet potential China's aggression in the region. China has a number of territorial disputes with its neighbors in the region.

The Philippines has launched a military modernization program. For decades, the primary focus of the AFP was dealing with internal threats, including communist and Muslim insurgencies. The United States has made extensive use of UAVs in military and anti-terrorist operations. Some unmanned aircraft are capable of carrying air-to-surface armaments.

A New York Times reports claims UAVs have conducted lethal missions against targets in the Philippines. U.S. and Philippine military officials have denied this allegation.

In December 2013, the Philippine Department of National Defense (DND) invited bidders who can provide 6 sets of small UAV systems to expand its surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.
