MANILA, Philippines – The Department of National Defense (DND) on Sunday announced that it is allocating over P33-million for the procurement of countermeasure munitions for light interim fighter aircraft.

The DND said it budgeted P33,702,286 for the acquisition of 17,80 units of RR-170 Chaffs and 8,640 units of MJU-7 IR Flares with impulsive cartridges to be fitted to the country’s brand new FA-50PH's Elbit Elisra SPS-45v5EC countermeasure dispenser system.

The country’s first two FA-50PH jet aircraft arrived on November 28 at the Clark Air Base, Angeles City as part of the 12-plane order from the Korea Aerospace Industries.

The purchase of the countermeasure munitions will also assure the survival of the FA-50PH or “Fighting Eagle” against enemy fire.

Countermeasures will be used to trap hostile radar and surface missile systems tracking or pursuing jet aircraft.

The pre-bid for the countermeasures is scheduled at January 6, 9 a.m. at the DND Bidding and Awards Committee Conference Room, DND Building, Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

The Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System said the winning bidders are required to deliver the items within 360 calendar days.
