On December 11, 2012, Republic Act no. 10349 known as the ‘AFP Modernization Act’ under then President Aquino came into force. It is a 15-year defense modernization program with initial funding of PHP75 billion being allocated for the first period of the program. Unlike previous defense modernization efforts in the Philippines, this time, contracts are being awarded and money is being spent. With the First Phase of the Modernization Program almost fully completed, the Agencies have now embarked on the “Second Horizon” of the Program.

All of these have resulted in the Philippines rapidly becoming one of the most active and progressive defense and security marketplaces in Southeast Asia. Leading market forecasters have indicated that there will be a sustained growth in defense spending throughout the next five years of the Second Horizon phase, with potential market value of nearly USD6 billion anticipated by 2024.The importance of the Philippine defense market is reflected by the decision of the country’s major stakeholders to actively support and endorse the ADAS Series.
