Navy to commission BRP Alcaraz in November


MANILA, Philippines - The Navy will commission its newest warship BRP Ramon Alcaraz in the third week of November.
Navy spokesman Lieutenant Commander Gregory Fabic said the frigate is undergoing the final phase of dry docking and repainting procedure.
"The commissioning and blessing (of the ship) may be held within the third week of November,” Fabic said in a text message.
He said President Aquino was invited to attend the ceremony but his attendance in the event is still being confirmed from the Presidential Management Staff.
“We are also looking at SBMA (Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority) as the venue. But nothing is definite yet. We are still in the planning process,” Fabic said.
The government acquired the BRP Alcaraz from the United States (US) Coast Guard to enhance the Navy’s maritime security capabilities.
Manned by 14 officers and 74 enlisted personnel, BRP Alcaraz reached Philippine waters last August 2 via Casiguran, Aurora.
The ship left its homeport in Charleston, South Carolina last June 10 and made port visits to San Diego and Honolulu, Hawaii before sailing for its last stopover in Guam. The BRP Alcaraz started sailing for Manila on July 27.
The ship was formally welcomed last Aug. 6 in a ceremony led by Aquino, who is also the commander-in-chief of the country’s armed forces.
The ship was named after Commodore Ramon Alcaraz, a Navy officer who commanded a patrol boat that shot three Japanese aircraft during World War II.
The US Coast Guard used the vessel for drug and migrant interdiction, law enforcement, search and rescue, living marine resources protection, and defense readiness.
BRP Alcaraz is the second frigate acquired by the Philippines from the US. The first one is BRP Gregorio del Pilar, which was commissioned by the Navy in 2011.
The government spent about P450 million to acquire BRP del Pilar and more than P600 million to acquire BRP Alcaraz. The two decades-old ships were acquired under the US defense excess article program.

Philippine military modernisation 'to stay on course' despite typhoon Haiyan

The modernisation of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) will remain on track despite the anticipated economic impact of Typhoon Haiyan, Philippine Air Force (PAF) spokesman Colonel Miguel Okol told IHS Jane's on 12 November.
Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines' central islands on 8 November and caused devastation, killing more than an estimated 10,000 people to make it the country's worst natural disaster. Damage caused by the storm is estimated to cost between USD12 billion and USD14 billion, or up to 5% of gross domestic product (GDP).
Despite this, Col Okol was adamant that the modernisation of the AFP would not be affected, including those programmes close to finalisation, such as the PAF's acquisition of 12 FA-50 light attack aircraft from Korea Aerospace Industries for USD300 million and the Philippine Navy's (PN's) recently launched project to purchase two light frigates for about USD420 million.

Manila says typhoon shows need for US-Philippine military accord

The swift US humanitarian response to the devastation of Super Typhoon Haiyan highlights the need to expand America's military presence in the Philippines, Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said Monday.

MANILA: The swift US humanitarian response to the devastation of Super Typhoon Haiyan highlights the need to expand America's military presence in the Philippines, Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said Monday.
He said a proposed agreement to strengthen the US military presence, which was being negotiated as the storm struck on November 8, would allow for the easier delivery of relief aid by US forces in the future.
"I think the typhoon demonstrates the need for this framework," del Rosario told reporters after meeting a US congressional delegation.
"It accentuates one of the main purposes of this framework, which is to make humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and response one of the major aspects of this agreement."
The proposed deal would allow more US troops, aircraft and ships to pass through the Philippines at a time when Washington is refocusing its attention on Asia.
It had also been seen as a counterweight to Chinese moves in the South China Sea, where Beijing has territorial disputes with US ally Manila.
Despite months of talks, the Philippine and US governments have failed to sign the agreement due to some differences in their respective positions.
However the United States, particularly its military, has burnished its image in the former US colony through its extensive relief work after the typhoon ravaged the central Philippine islands, leaving almost 7,000 dead or missing.
Planes and helicopters from a US carrier group are leading an airlift of emergency aid to dozens of affected towns and villages.
"We want to be part of the solution," US House of Representatives member Christopher Smith, who headed a congressional delegation to inspect the relief efforts, told a joint news conference.
He said del Rosario mentioned that the Philippines would need $1.3 billion to rebuild storm-damaged houses.
A USAID statement on its website said the United States had provided nearly $52 million in aid since the typhoon hit.
A US military statement also said that at its peak, 13 US ships and nearly 8,000 American sailors and marines were involved in the relief efforts, particularly in transporting much-needed food and water.
The Philippines previously hosted huge US military bases but the last of these closed in 1992.
Washington says it does not seek new bases but only a greater "rotational" presence.

Armed Forces to build pier, harbor near Spratlys


MANILA - The Armed Forces of the Philippines plan to build a pier and harbor at a naval base in Palawan, the island province closest to the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, according to officials and a defense document.
Military officials confirmed Wednesday to reporters the plan to build "pier, harbor and support facilities" in Oyster Bay -- the navy's shipyard directly facing the South China Sea.
The project will cost around 313 million pesos (around $7.29 million), according to the document.
The Department of National Defense and the Armed Forces of the Philippines have invited companies to bid on the project from Dec. 2.
Commodore Natalio Abinuman, commander of the Philippine Naval Forces West in Ulugan Bay in Puerto Princesa, said the project, when completed, will boost the Philippine territorial defense, adding the existing pier, harbor and facilities in Oyster Bay are dilapidated.
"We need this new port to refuel our ships...(and) to improve the support system for our ships that are deployed in the South China Sea," Abinuman said.
Lt. Cheryl Tindog, spokeswoman for the military's Western Command based in Palawan, also said the new facility will "improve our capability in terms of territorial defense...(and) internal security operations."
"Whether there is an emerging threat or none, I think the improvement of the facilities of our naval forces is just, especially those that are involved in our territorial integrity (operations)."
She said the navy has long been planning to upgrade the decades-old facilities in Oyster Bay. "We are very happy that the improvement of our facilities is materializing now," she told reporters.
Manila and Washington are negotiating a new agreement to grant the U.S. military "expanded access" to Philippine airfields and ports, specifically for "servicing and maintenance," including refueling and repair of U.S. aircraft and warships.
Philippine and U.S. officials have been silent about the details of the negotiations, but sources said Oyster Bay, a cove nestled in mangrove forests and limestone cliffs, is among the facilities that will be made accessible to the U.S. military.
China has territorial and maritime disputes with the Philippines over islands, shoals, cays and reefs in the South China Sea and has acted "assertively" in the area in recent years, alarming the Philippines and claimants Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei.
The United States has repeatedly said it will not take sides in the various disputes, while urging claimants to resolve their differences peacefully.
The Philippines' 1987 Constitution bans permanent foreign military basing on its soil, but the United States maintains strong security ties with the Philippines through a 1951 mutual defense treaty.
In 1998, Washington and Manila forged a visiting forces agreement, paving the way for increased military cooperation under the 1951 treaty.
Under the pact, the United States conducts ship visits to Philippine ports and resumes large combined military exercises with Philippine forces.

Philippine Navy Frigate Program: An OPV by Any Other Name?

The Philippine Navy has unveiled bidding specifications to purchase it’s first new major surface combatant in several decades. Titled “Frigate Acquisition Program,” this key milestone of the Capability Upgrade Program will reorient the nation’s military from decades of COIN operations and enable a credible defense against conventionally-armed opponents.
A closer look at the program’s bid specifications along with missions that are likely to be met by the platform, reflects the balancing act between cost and capability that all naval forces must perform when seeking mid-to-low assets. Is it really a frigate that they’re looking for? Or is it more of a corvette? Or even an Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV)?
It’s worth noting that at a functional view, the distinctions today between frigates, corvettes and OPVs are subtle; and in most cases, the label used is more about political expediency than clear-cut delineations about capabilities. For purposes of this article, an OPV leans towards enforcement or constabulary duties as opposed to being a dedicated combatant vessel, with a minimal weapons fit necessary to fulfill it’s function.
A Philippine Navy Desired Force Mix paper published in 2012 identified gaps in several operational specialties including Anti-Air Warfare (AAW) and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW); roles traditionally filled by frigates and corvettes. The bid specifications at a high level paint a picture of a multi-role combatant with embarked helicopter that meets both those capabilities, plus a moderate surface warfare punch.
However, a closer look at the requirements calls into question if the program is really seeking a frigate:

  • Perform Economic Zone Protection Roles
  • Operate up to Sea State 6
  • Operational Range of 4,500 nautical miles @ 15 knots
  • 30 Days Endurance
  • Minimum upper speed of 25 knots
Starting at the top, the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) specification combined with high endurance and rough sea-state handling gives signals that we’re looking more at a patrol vessel for primary use. The contemporary history of spats with China over the resource-rich Shoals and the Spratlys is a stark reminder that asserting claims in the maritime space is one of the Philippine’s political drivers for modernization. Currently, the Navy has only two vessels capable of sustained operations to the edges of the EEZ; namely the newly acquired High-Endurance Cutters (WHEC) from the U.S. Coast Guard. It’s logical that follow-on ships would enhance those same patrol and presence operations.
The lower speed range (most combatants top out at 30+ knots), large operating radius, modest cruise rate and long endurance time reinforce the idea of patrol rather than dedicated offensive operations. While a specific propulsion type is not mentioned, one of the reasons the Philippines did not leverage wide availability of gas-turbine ships in the used defense market is a concern for their high fuel consumption rates. That may be explained in some part by the doubling of the Navy’s Petroleum, Oil & Lubricants (POL) expenditure; seeming to coincide with the initial operating year of the gas-powered Hamilton WHECs. While the cutters by themselves cannot be the sole cause, it’s a reminder that with new acquisitions comes a increased overhead – there are no free lunches. Gas-turbine plants are also a novelty, having been introduced to the Fleet only on the WHECs – and an older model to boot. Given all that, it’s likely that the winning bid will be diesel-based. This is also a characteristic of patrol vessels, prioritizing fuel efficiency and a greater operating range while trading off reduced speeds for sprints, evasive maneuvers and transits.
Other aspects to consider:

  • Embarked helicopter and rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) facilities, including full hangar space for the aviation asset
  • Accommodations for special warfare or other occupants
  • Selection of a 2D air search radar and Electro-Optical (EO) sensors
  • A quadruple Surface-to-Air (SAM) launcher with infrared or semi-active homing missiles (5km minimum range)
  • Two dual-box Surface-to-Surface Missile (SSM) Launchers (total of four missiles, 50 km minimum range)
  • 76mm main gun
  • One (1) secondary stabilized gun
Again, some subtle differences delineate this vessel’s requirements from a pure combat craft. Helos and RHIBs are common to both ship types – force multipliers that enable presence, intelligence-gathering and and if needed, kinetic reach well beyond the ship’s limits. Conversely, they can also be used for search-and-rescue (SAR) and law enforcement. A possible supporting indicator is whether the winning bid uses ramps versus davits. The latter method is more versatile and enables SAR operations in rougher seas that would swamp a ramp-equipped ship. The additional accommodations, while noted for special warfare detachments, can also double as holding areas for refugees, survivors or detainees.
When selecting a sensor suite for a frigate, there are no advantages to having a 2D radar versus a more capable 3D radar that facilitates, among other things, effective anti-air warfare. Coupled with the minimal SAM armament that is purely defensive in capability, this cannot be one of the ships meeting the AAW role. The under specification of the SSMs (eight missiles are nominally found on most warships) is another indicator of the balance between versatility and weapons fit, potentially indicating that deckspace is either at a premium or needs to be freed for other purposes. The 76mm main gun leverages operational and maintenance commonality, as the Oto-Melara is present on other ships in the fleet. It is also just about the largest caliber that can be found on patrol vessels. No explicit Close-In Weapons System, a staple in modern warfare against missile-equipped opponents, is another tell. Very rarely are OPVs armed with last-ditch defense systems, and their secondary gun is usually a slower-firing weapon in the 20-35mm range rather than high-speed multi-barrelled Phalanxes or GoalKeepers.
Of the eleven prospective bidders, what are some of the offerings that might fit? The tight budget requirement really drives baselines to be a small hull, likely accompanied by a custom sensor/weapons fit that may not tick all the boxes.
[url=http://www.navantia.es/ckfinder/userfiles/files/Avante 1800 Corvette_r01%281%29.pdf]Navatia’s Avante 1800[/url] is an excellent candidate, ticking and in most cases, exceeding the requirement checkboxes. South Korea could be sitting pretty, as the pending sale of FA-50 fighters could put them at the top of the list to leverage same-source efficiencies. But it will take a lot of corner-cutting to get Hyundai’s Incheon-class frigate down-specified to fit the bill. While not in the prospective bidders list, other close alternatives are BAE’s Amazonas-class OPV, and ST Marine’s Fearless baseline platform. Other alternatives may be immediately disqualified on the basis that they must be “proven vessels,” – i.e., previous successful sales of the platform in the past ten years.
Given the short period that has passed since publication of the technical specifications, it’s not surprising that the [url=http://dnd.gov.ph/transparency/procurement/DND_BAC/Supplemental_Bid/SBB Nr AFPMP-PN-FAP-13-01.pdf]bidding deadline moved[/url] to the end of November, granting interested parties more time to build competitive proposals. Of all the hurdles they face, the one that may be most daunting is the projected total budget of roughly USD400 Million for both units plus integrated logistics support. The situation is further complicated by the notorious [url=http://www.gppb.gov.ph/downloadables/forms/GPM - Vol.2.pdf]2-Stage Bid Process[/url] that has derailed previous acquisition programs.
A term that will likely puzzle and frustrate the bid analysis is “Fitted for but not with” – meaning, “yes, we’d like to have Feature X, but if your bid doesn’t have it, it might still be okay and we might actually have the money for it but we can’t tell you right now.” It’s a very big symptom of the program’s tone of uncertainty. If no changes are issued to the technical specifications, then only pre-bid Q&A will enable prospective companies to tailor their offerings.
The program could quickly run out of steam if winning bids don’t emerge. If that happens, the bid process resets with accompanying waiting periods. Several factors are lining up that would make such delays to a successful signed contract fatal. For starters, the monies allocated will need to eventually be reset if not spent, requiring passage again through an already lengthy and onerous legislative process. President Benigno Aquino III’s term will end in 2016, and there is no guarantee that the following administration will be as supportive of military modernization. Finally, there is growing call for a rejection of purchases that are not addressing immediate security needs such as the Sabah and Zamboanga crises. Assuming a bid makes it past, they will still have to reckon with Stage 2, where potentially something as small as a documentation omission or error could force a reset back to the beginning as well.
To succeed, the Frigate Acquisition Program needs to move away from a minimums-only approach on technical specifications. A Request-for-Proposal that states minimums exclusively will beget minimums – driving the bidders to a cost-sensitive solution. By emphasizing what this platform really should excel at (i.e., surface warfare or AAW), this gives maneuvering room for the suppliers to build in additional selling points under the bottom line. This gives the Philippine Navy a solution that should satisfy cost limitations and deliver the most value.

DND: No consensus yet on P18.9-B fighter jets' purchase

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines and South Korean firm Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) are still hurdling issues related to the military’s plan to buy 12 lead in fighter trainer jets worth P18.9-billion.

Defense Undersecretary Fernando Manalo admitted on Monday that they have yet to reach consensus on some issues including the down payment to be given to the supplier and the period of delivery of spare parts.

“The lead in fighter (project) is within the process of negotiation with the government of South Korea and there are major issues, there are several issues that we still have to hurdle,” Manalo said in a press conference.

Among the issues to be threshed out is the advance payment to be given to KAI.

Manalo said the law allows state agencies to pay a 15 percent down payment while the rest of the amount would be paid upon the delivery of goods.

KAI wants the Philippines to pay a 52 percent down payment but Manalo said this would require the approval of President Aquino.
Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1

“The approval of a down payment that is more than 15 percent does not rest on the BAC (Bids and Awards Committee). It will be up to the president,” Manalo said.

“Even if we consider their request on the terms of payment and more progressive billing, we cannot do it. We can only recommend to the president,” he added.

Another issue being threshed out is the turnaround time, the period required for the delivery of the jets’ spare parts under a two-year warranty.

Manalo said the turnaround time usually lasts for 30 to 45 days but KAI wants it prolonged to 180 days.

When asked whether he is still optimistic that the issues surrounding the project will be resolved, Manalo said: “This project should push through but we cannot continue without looking at it and ensuring that aircraft we will buy won’t be left unused without the spare parts.”

Manalo said they would decide whether to push through with a deal with KAI within the year.

“We are already preparing our firm position and then we are going to submit it to KAI for them to determine whether that is acceptable. We cannot just let it hang for a long time. We will immediately resolve the issue,” he said.

The government plans to acquire 12 FA-50 jets from South Korea to boost the territorial defense capabilities of the Air Force. The negotiations with KAI started last July.

Earlier, Air Force chief Lt. Gen. Lauro Catalino dela Cruz said two FA-50 jets could be delivered by the end of 2014 if all the contracts and other necessary documents are signed this year.

The acquisition of FA-50 jets is one of the big ticket items in the military’s multi-billion upgrade program.
A total of P85.29-billion is needed to bankroll the program for the next four years, Defense department data showed.

Other items to be acquired were Navy frigates, ammunitions, rocket launchers, handheld radios, long range patrol aircraft, amphibious assault vehicles, anti-submarine helicopter, aerial radars, engineering equipment and base support facilities

Manalo said the government is also planning to spend P6.5-billion to buy a shore-based missile system but declined to say where it will be located.

Defense set to acquire P700-M howitzers, ammunitions

ABS-CBNnews.com

Posted at 12/01/2013 6:31 PM | Updated as of 12/01/2013 6:33 PM



MANILA - The Department of National Defense (DND) has announced the public bidding for the purchase of P700 million worth of howitzers and ammunitions.

Assistant Defense Secretary and DND-Bids and Awards Committee chairman Efren Fernandez said the acquisition of 12 units of 155mm Towed Howitzer has an approved budget of P438.6 million.

The other project, which has a budget of P303.8 million, requires the purchase of 5,990 rounds of ammunition for 25mm gun, 43,578 rounds of ammunition for 40mm gun, and 4,500 rounds of ammunition for 105mm gun and explosives.

He said the acquisitions will be for the use of the 80,000-strong Philippine Army, which is at the forefront of addressing internal threats.

The military is aiming to defeat the New People’s Army and the Abu Sayyaf on or before the end of the term of President Aquino in July 2016 as provided in the Internal Peace and Security Plan Bayanihan.

The projects will be via open competitive bidding as anchored on the Government Procurement Act. Local and foreign bidders are welcome.

The howitzers must be delivered within 360 days from the opening of the letter of credit, while the ammunitions will have to be delivered within 210 to 240 days.

8 hurt as Air Force chopper crashes in Leyte


MANILA, Philippines—Eight were injured as a Huey helicopter of the Philippine Air Force crashed off Leyte on Friday afternoon, the military said.

Reports reaching the Armed Forces of the Philippines Public Affairs Office said the chopper crashed near Bagacay Dos village in La Paz town in Leyte at around 3:45 p.m.

The chopper allegedly malfunctioned, the initial report said.

A squad from the 78th Infantry Battalion was sent and the Tactical Operations Group dispatched one helicopter and a medical team.
Army’s 8th Infantry Division spokesman Captain Amado Gutierrez, meanwhile, said all of the passengers– six crew and two staff from the Department of Social Welfare and Development–were safe . They were brought to Burauen District Hospital.

Four of the passengers were transferred to a Tacloban City hospital. All of the eight sustained “slight” injuries.

Gutierrez said the Huey had “engine trouble.”

Philippine Navy has 3 new helicopters from Italy
By Jaime Laude, The Philippine Star
Posted at 12/12/2013 2:39 AM | Updated as of 12/12/2013 2:39 AM

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Navy has taken delivery of three of five brand-new helicopters it bought from Italy for P1.33 billion.

Philippine Fleet spokesman Lt. Junior Grade Rommel Rodriguez said yesterday the three units of AugustaWestland (AW-109s “Power”) helicopters were turned over to his unit last Sunday for testing.

“All the three AW-109s were delivered at Villamor Airbase, Pasay City. Two of the helicopters flew to Sangley Point Naval Base in Cavite for testing. The one remaining is flying to Cavite today,” Rodriguez said.

Navy pilots and air crewmen who undertook a six-month training at Cesto Calende in Italy early this year flew them to Sangley.

The helicopters would be placed under the control and supervision of the Naval Air Group.

Another two aircraft, the armed version, are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2014.

Rodriquez said the three AW-109s would be commissioned in time for the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ 78th anniversary on Dec. 21.

The helicopters will be based on the Navy’s BRP Gregorio Del Pilar and sister ship BRP Ramon Alcaraz. Both frigates, which the government acquired from the United States, can accommodate two helicopters – one at the hangar and the other on the helipad.

The AW-109s are fitted with a forward looking infrared camera and night vision equipment, making it ideal for nighttime search-and-rescue missions, Navy spokesperson Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Fabic said.

The sensors installed in forward-looking infrared cameras and other thermal imaging cameras use detection of infrared radiation emitted from a heat source (thermal radiation) to create a “picture” assembled for video output, Fabic said.

The AW-109 “Power” helicopter is a three-ton class eight-seat helicopter powered by two Pratt and Whitney PW206C engines.

PH military to acquire drones

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of National Defense (DND) is inviting bidders who can supply the military with 6 sets of small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) sub-system or drones to expand its surveillance and reconnaisance capabilities.

"It's going to be our eye in the sky, without the risk of human person. We will use it for surveillance and even search and rescue. Drones have cameras. We will have wider surveillance reconnaisance and even search and rescue," said Navy spokesperson Lieutenant Commander Gregory Gerald Fabic. The drones will be used in combat, he said.

It is among 4 items in the P684-million contract for the Marine Forces Imagery and Targeting Support System (MITSS) Acquisition Project for the Philippines Marine Corps.

The project consisted of:

6 sets of small unmanned aerial vehicle sub-system
9 sets of Target Acquisition Device Sub-Sytems
12 kits of Tactical Sensor Integration Sub-System
1 Lot of Initial Integrated Logistics Support (1 spare MITSS/Training/Manuals)

These assets will be used by the 3 Marine Brigades and initial Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) system, according to the invitation to bid.

The Philippines has joined the debate on the controversial use of drones especially after a July 2012 New York Times article claimed that the Philippines is one of the countries where US conducted "lethal" drone operations. US and Philippines military officials have denied this. (READ: What drones? PH not Afghanistan – US officer)

A US-made UAV crashed off Masbate in January and Davao City Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte later disclosed a supposed plan by the US government to use the city as an operating base for UAVs for its anti-terrorism campaign. Duterte refused. (READ: US drone crashes off Masbate – police and Duterte says no to US drones)

2 brand new naval helicopters from Italy to arrive soon, says President Aquino


MANILA - President Benigno Aquino III said two more brand new naval helicopters from Italy will be delivered soon as part of the continuing efforts of the government to modernize the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

The military earlier commissioned the first batch of three brand new naval helicopters delivered by Anglo-Italian supplier AgustaWestland worth P1.33 billion. The helicopters will accompany the frigates BRP Gregorio del Pilar and BRP Ramon Alcaraz in patrolling the country's territorial waters.

"In the face of many challenges, we expect a lot from our soldiers. That is why it is but fitting that the government boosts your capacity to respond to the call of duty," Aquino said in his speech during the 78th anniversary of the AFP aired over state-run Radyo ng Bayan on Friday.

"You can be assured that from procuring brand new hardware to providing opportunities to your family up to the time that you retire, the government will continue to push for what is best for you," Aquino said.

The President thanked the AFP for responding to various calamities that faced the country this year, including the Zamboanga City hostage crisis, the earthquake that struck Cebu and Bohol, and the unprecedented super typhoon Yolanda.

"You have proven to the whole world that no matter how big the challenge we face, for as long as we show courage and dedication, we can take care of the Filipino people," he added.

The President also urged the AFP not to be contented with its victories in the field, but to continue working on winning the hearts and minds of the people.

DND eyes 4 projects to upgrade military bases
By Alexis Romero, The Philippine Star
Posted at 12/26/2013 1:24 AM | Updated as of 12/26/2013 1:24 AM

MANILA, Philippines - The Department of National Defense (DND) is set to implement at least four projects aimed at upgrading military bases under the new Armed Forces Modernization Law.

The projects, amounting to over P2 billion, seek to support new military assets to be acquired by the government.

The four base-related projects are the Air Force basing support systems for long-range patrol aircraft (P187 million), lead-in fighter trainer jets (P135.99 million), Air Force radar system (P825.52 million) and Navy basing support system (P1 billion).

The base support project for the long-range patrol aircraft will be implemented in Lipa, Palawan and Zamboanga.

The DND also bared plans to acquire two units of long-range patrol aircraft worth P5.98 billion and 12 lead in-fighter trainer jets worth P18.9 billion to boost its territorial defense capabilities and security operations.

The Air Force plans to buy three air surveillance radars worth P2.68 billion to improve its monitoring capabilities.

On the other hand, the Navy is still threshing out its P1-billion basing support system consisting of 10 projects.

The old Armed Forces Modernization Act, which took effect in 1995, gave the military a chance to modernize its assets and equipment in 15 years with a P331-billion fund.

However, the program was stalled due to lack of funds and the changing priorities of the national leadership. As a result, the Philippine military has been dubbed one of the most poorly equipped in the Asia-Pacific region.

Last year, President Aquino signed a new modernization law to provide more resources to the military’s upgrade efforts.

More than P85 billion is required to fund the program, which will get P15 billion per year from the national budget until 2017.

Another source of funding is the President’s commitment, which is expected to channel P632.18 million to the program yearly until 2015.

A total of P4.78 billion will come from proceeds of the Malampaya natural gas project, in which the government has a share from taxes, royalties and charges, and remittances from the Bases Conversion and Development Authority.

US, Canada firms bag PAF Huey deal

MANILA, Philippines - A joint venture of two companies based in North America has bagged the deal to supply 21 UH-1 combat utility helicopters to the Philippine Air Force.

The joint venture of American firm Rice Aircraft Services Inc. and Canadian company Eagle Copters Ltd. won the contract for the supply and delivery of Huey helicopters, the workhorse of the military’s operations.

The STAR learned that the notice of award was issued to the joint venture last week.

Defense Assistant Secretary Patrick Velez said in an interview the Huey helicopters can be used for rescue and internal security operations.

“The helicopters will be used to meet immediate requirements. They will be used to address the dwindling capability of the Air Force,” Velez said.

The approved outlay for the project was P1.26 billion, but the helicopters would be purchased for about P1.25 million less than the approved budget for the contract, he added.

The supplier is expected to start delivery within six months.

“The first delivery based on the requirements is six months but they might deliver that in as close as two weeks,” Velez said.

Earlier, the Defense department held three public biddings for the Huey helicopters acquisition project but all of these failed due to the bidders’ failure to meet some requirements. The Defense department then resorted to an alternative form of procurement to acquire the helicopters.

Officials said the procurement mode was similar to public bidding but without the publication requirements. Under a public bidding, the procuring agency should publish a bid notice in newspapers and the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System website.

Section 53 of the implementing rules of the procurement law allows agencies to resort to a negotiated procurement when there has been a failure of public bidding for the second time.

Negotiated procurement was defined as “a method of procurement of goods, infrastructure projects and consulting services, whereby the procuring entity directly negotiates a contract with a technically, legally and financially capable supplier, contractor or consultant.”

The 21 UH-1 helicopters were originally intended to perform poll-related duties last May but the acquisition had been delayed by failed biddings.

Fighter jets

Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin said the delivery of lead-in fighter trainer jets to be acquired from South Korea may start in June 2015.

The government plans to spend P18.9 billion to acquire 12 FA-50 jets from South Korea to boost the Air Force’s territorial defense capabilities.

Philippines Military To Expand Counter-Terrorism Unit




MANILA — The Philippine government is to triple the size of a special forces military unit that operates against Islamist militants responsible for deadly bombings and kidnappings of Westerners, officials said Tuesday.
The Light Reaction Battalion is to be built up to regiment size, Philippine Army chief Lt. Gen. Noel Coballes said, an increase from about 500 soldiers to as many as 1,500.
“We have seen how effective they are, so we are strengthening the unit in terms of anti-terrorism. From a battalion we’ll increase it to a regiment,” he said.
The unit is fighting the Abu Sayyaf, a group of several hundred Islamist militants who are behind the country’s deadliest attacks as well as kidnappings of Western targets.
Defence Secretary Voltaire Gazmin said the battalion had taken substantial casualties during a three-week battle against gunmen in the southern port of Zamboanga in September last year.
The gunmen are followers of former rebel leader Nur Misuari, who went into hiding as hundreds of his men infiltrated Zamboanga to oppose a proposed peace treaty between the Philippine government and a rival Muslim guerrilla faction.
The fighting left more than 240 people dead and displaced about 116,000 people as entire districts of the city of nearly a million people went up in flames.
“As you have seen, we lost a number of our men in the Zamboanga incident, which led to a shortage that needed to be addressed,” Gazmin said.
Neither official gave a timetable, but armed forces spokesman Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala said the unit would be bulked up within the year.
“Based on what happened in Zamboanga, our military leadership saw a need to increase the strength of the Light Reaction Battalion to be able to address contingencies anywhere in the country,” Zagala told AFP.
The United States has trained and equipped the battalion since 2002, to help its Asian ally fight the Islamist militants in the south of the mainly Catholic nation.

Philippine Navy selects PT PAL for SSV procurement


Indonesia's PT PAL has been selected to construct two strategic sealift vessels (SSVs) for the Philippine Navy (PN).
PT PAL executive Edy Andarto told IHS Jane's on 10 January that the company has received a notice of award (NoA) from the PN to build the ships, and that a contract will be signed soon.
Andarto also confirmed that PT PAL had offered the PN an SSV design based loosely on the Makassar-class landing platform docks (LPDs) that the company constructed for the Indonesian Navy. The Makassar-class platform was designed by South Korean company Daesun.
The SSV programme, which replaced and downsized a previous amphibious multirole vessel project, is worth PHP4 billion (USD90 million).

Airbus moves closer to Philippine C295 contract

The Airbus C295 has emerged as the final bidder for a contract to supply three tactical transport aircraft to the Philippines.

In an email to Flightglobal, Airbus Defence & Space confirms its selection.

“The selection of the Airbus C295 by the Philippine Department of National Defence is a strong endorsement of the C295, which is the clear market leader in its segment and clearly the best value for money solution,” the company says. “We look forward to continuing our discussions with the [defence department] and hope to achieve a positive contract award soon.”

The other competitors for the requirement were Indonesia’s PTDI, which pitched the smaller CN235-220, and Alenia Aermacchi, which promoted its C-27J. Airbus says its C295 pitch was entirely separate from PTDI’s offer.

For a country of its size and population, the Philippines' air force is desperately short of transport aircraft. According to Flightglobal’s MiliCAS database, it operates just three Lockheed Martin C-130B/H aircraft, two Fokker F27s, and two smaller turboprop aircraft.

PAF to acquire 3 modern flight simulators for P246 M




MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Air Force (PAF) is acquiring three modern flight simulators for P246.4 million to help pilots operate efficiently the soon-to-be-delivered T-50 fighter jets from South Korea.

The Department of National Defense (DND) said it is bidding out the project designed to enhance the operational capability of the PAF.

“This will allow pilots an almost full sensory experience that can aid improving flight instruction, enhancing proficiency, minimizing risks associated with emergency procedures training, reducing accidents, filling up downtimes, and saving on aircraft operational and maintenance costs,” Defense Undersecretary Efren Fernandez, chair of the Bids and Award Committee for the project, said.

“The DND and the Armed Forces of the Philippines now invite bids from eligible bidders for the Full Motion Flight Simulator Acquisition Project. Delivery of the goods is required within a period of 600 calendar days from the opening of the Letter of Credit (LC),” Fernandez said.

Sources said the government is set to acquire more fighter jets from other countries.

Prior to the opening of the bid for the simulator project on Feb. 10, a pre-bid conference will be held on Jan. 27 at the DND BAC Conference Room at Camp Aguinaldo.

“The DND and the AFP reserves the right to accept or reject any bid, to annul the bidding process, and to reject all bids at any time prior to the contract award, without thereby incurring any liability to the affected bidder or bidders,” Fernandez said.

The defense department is also bidding out a P149-million contract for the construction of Air Force facilities in Tawi-Tawi and Palawan as part of the military’s upgrade of its maritime defense and rescue capabilities in the West Philippine Sea and Sulu Sea.

The DND has also signed an P888-million contract with Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems Land and C41 for the acquisition of 28 armored infantry vehicles to boost the fighting capability of the 80,000-strong Philippine Army (PA).

Part of the project is retrofitting 24 of the army’s M113 armored personnel carriers with turrets from decommissioned Scorpion light reconnaissance tanks, transforming the M113s into fire support vehicles from merely “battle taxis.” Mounted on Scorpion’s turrets are 76mm cannon and 7.62mm machinegun.

The upgraded M113 fire support vehicle will also be equipped with a new fire control system and thermal imaging system.

Four of the M113s will have the capability of Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV) armed with 25mm automatic cannons. Six will be equipped with additional .50 caliber heavy machineguns.

The M113s will also get upgrades on their armor protection and amphibious capability.

The Israeli firm will throw in, for free, four M113 armored recovery and repair vehicles.

The Army expects to roll out the 28 combat vehicles by January 2015, said Defense Undersecretary Patrick Velez. At present, the Army is heavily dependent on 105mm and 155mm howitzers in providing fire support for troops battling Abu Sayyaf terrorists or communist rebels.

Navy Chief: US Would 'Help' Philippines In South China Sea


MANILA — The United States will “help” the Philippines in the event that China occupies disputed islands in the South China Sea, the US Chief of Naval Operations said Thursday.
Adm. Jonathan Greenert also stressed that the US would honor its mutual defense treaty with the Philippines amid a seething territorial conflict with China over the resource-rich waters.
“Of course we would help you. I don’t know what that help would be, specifically. I mean we have an obligation because we have a treaty,” he told students at a state defense college during a visit to Manila.
His remarks — one of the strongest US declarations of support for the Philippines — come as concerns rise that China will attempt to forcefully assert its claim to almost all of the South China Sea.
China’s claim conflicts with that of the Philippines, which has a 1951 treaty with the United States that officials say bind the two partners to defend each other in case of external attack.
The United States has not taken a stand on the conflicting territorial claims over the South China Sea, which also involve Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam.
But Greenert said that he wanted to send a “clear signal ... that aggressive behavior outside of international norms is contrary to good order.”
“You may have seen some statements coming from our policy makers exactly in that direction. You will see more of that from us,” he added.
He also said that the US Navy would increase its presence in the Western Pacific region from the present level of about 50 ships to 60 ships by 2020.
In December, during a visit to the Philippines, US Secretary of State John Kerry warned China against any move to declare an air defense zone in the South China Sea, a declaration that was seen as an affirmation of the defense ties between Manila and Washington.
Greenert also praised the Philippines’ move to ask a UN tribunal to strike down China’s claims to most of the South China Sea, saying it was “a terrific idea.”
He urged the Philippines “to stay the course and bring this to fruition,” even though China has refused to participate in the process.

Philippine Navy Signs Contract for Two Additional AW109 Power Helicopters


AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce the signing of a contract with the Philippine Navy for two additional AW109 Power maritime helicopters. The helicopters will be used for a wide range of naval missions including economic zone protection, surface surveillance, SAR and maritime security. This latest contract brings to five the total number of AW109 Powers ordered by the Philippine Navy which is already operating the first batch of three aircraft. The order further expands the success achieved by this model in the Philippines for military applications following the contract for eight units signed by the Philippine Air Force in 2013. The two additional helicopters will be delivered in the second half of this year and will operate from both shore and ship bases. The contract includes initial logistics support and training for aircrew and maintenance personnel.



Vincenzo Alaimo, AgustaWestland’s Head of Regional Sales for SE Asia, said “It gives us great pleasure to announce this new order for the AW109 Power by the Philippines’ military following the initial success achieved in 2013 with contracts signed by both the Navy and the Air Force. This very capable and cost effective helicopter can provide tremendous support to the nation’s security and safety thanks to its outstanding performance and mission capabilities.” The AW109 Power is a three-tonne class eight seat helicopter powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW206C engines with FADEC. The spacious cabin is designed to be fitted with a number of modular equipment packages for quick and easy conversion between roles. The aircraft’s safety features include a fully separated fuel system, dual hydraulic boost system, dual electrical systems and redundant lubrication and cooling systems for the main transmission and engines.

The AW109 Power has established itself as the world’s best-selling light-twin helicopter for maritime missions. The AW109 Power’s superior speed, capacity and productivity combined with reliability and ease of maintenance make it the most cost effective maritime helicopter in its class. For shipboard operations the aircraft has a reinforced-wheeled landing gear and deck mooring points as well as extensive corrosion protection measures. The ability to operate from small ships in high sea state enables the AW109 Power to perform its mission when many others helicopters would be confined to the ship’s hangar. Approximately 580 AW109 Power and AW109 LUH helicopters have been ordered for commercial, parapublic and military applications by customers in nearly 50 countries.

Bautista: No stopping AFP modernization



Gen. Emmanuel Bautista, the Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff, said he is optimistic the modernization program will push through even without the help of the United States.

Bautista, who was in Baguio City for the PMA Alumni Homecoming over the weekend, said the modernization program of the AFP will continue with new frigates for the Philippine Navy and South Korean FA50 trainer jets for the Philippine Air Force.

Bautista said that, while the government is keen on buying several C-130 transport aircraft from the United States, the country is also considering other sources of frigates and fighter jets.

He said these new air and naval assets would be a big boost to the country’s defense of its territories, clarifying these could not be sent to disputed areas especially in the West Philippine Sea, as an ongoing protocol for status quo remains among ASEAN-member nations and China.

However, the commanding general of the AFP stressed that modernization also includes the improvement of training courses and tactics used by the various branches of the military.

He said the acquisition of new naval and air assets have already been firmed up even before the expected arrival of US President Barrack Obama in April, and that this will continue even after he retires on July and beyond the end of President Aquino's term.

The C130 planes that will be purchased from the US, he stressed, have proven useful in military operations and in disaster relief missions.

He said the country may need more than P5 billion for the acquisition of new air and naval assets for its modernization program.
