The USA formal announcement - Pentagon Contract Announcement
(Source: US Department of Defense; issued Aug 15, 2017)

Insitu Inc., Bingen, Washington, is being awarded $7,407,625 for firm-fixed-price order N00019F0235 against a previously issued basic ordering agreement (N00019-17-G-0001) for the procurement of six ScanEagle unmanned aircraft systems, related support equipment, training, site activation, technical services, and data for the government of the Philippines.

Work will be performed in Bingen, Washington, (70 percent); and Hood River, Oregon (30 percent), and is expected to be completed in July 2019.

Foreign military sales funds in the amount of $7,407,625 are being obligated at the time of the award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity.

The project that I hope (for lack of a better term) might potentially lead to bigger and better things is the construction of 2 multi-mission patrol patrol vessels that is underway for BFAR.  Construction began on these ships early in 2016, and presumably these vessels should be nearing completion.



I haven't been able to figure out what the status is of who owns the rights to this design.  Does Incat Crowther retain the rights, but is licensing it out?  If so, did it license it to Josefa Slipways or the Philippine government?  Or does Josefa Slipways or the Philippine government own the rights to the design outright?

The question I have, and would pose is this........can this design be adapted for to become something that can be used by the PCG and/or the PN?  Can this be the basis for a Philippine Navy OPV?  Can this serve as a template and an evolutionary step into eventually building something like a corvette?
It's worth to note the presence of Usec. Alano, a retired Navy Officer with the collaboration of Navy & Coast Guard, & the Coastwatch Center on its Keel Laying Ceremony on the endeavour of a Civilian Agency with a limited Constabulary or Marine Resources protection Duties. we will never know how our Naval planners weigh's its possible adaptation to Naval service. until the successful launching that might be considered. as a saying by Sir A, "absence of evidence...." I forgot.

Credits to Jian20's contribution of BFAR ship's progress of it's Hull's construction.

Kidding aside Jian20, If I have a means "I will provide you with a drone to take a pic of the ramp from above of this BFAR ship, & for your HUMINT OP, unnoticed of Josefa's security" ha ha ha  ;D ;D

Hi Sir,

(Cannot find any existing thread. Please move to appropriate thread if necessary)

I've seen these two being constructed for some time now. The yard is part of the Josefa slipways. Took the photos while crossing the river from Malabon to Navotas. I just did not had the chance to take a front view pic. The guard was already chasing me  ;D

I'm so Thankful & Happy to read this topic of the potential design of a larger Patrol/ Combat vessel of our Navy & CG with a High Endurance capability.

Likewise, I admit that I'm also a fan of a stern ramp for our future vessels as an added capability in all Oceangoing vessel that also includes the BFAR ship.

Credit to Sinagtala for sharing your friend's pic of the stern of the BRP Pampanga that I was also able to board last Independence day for the discussion of Dutch. can't help my excitement. I am also hoping to catch the last day exhibit Tomorrow of the ongoing the PHILMARINE Exhibition at SMX to learn more aside from taking pics.

Can't find a complete video of the following link. I think it's also the Paguan islands mountain view where Capt. Joy made a trek. there is an operational Navy watch post viable to the panoramic view of the Littoral seas of our country's back door.

Sometimes, if you had been watching these for a long while, you'll realize that it had been a rigodon-and-waltz with the each FOIC as the bandmaster. :)

Yeah, I've been watching in the sidelines for more than 20 years and the PN has had more FOICs than new ships.

The depressing part is with the new modernization law and horizons and all, the PN is more aligned with the 1995 modernization law which called for 3 OPVs, LPDs and ASW helicopters. The wishlist then was Halifax class, Rotterdam class and the Super Lynx what we got was the 3 Peacocks and a flotilla of Andrada's. 20 yrs after we have 3 GDPs, 2 Tarlacs, and 2 upcominig Wildcats (notice the similarities/alignment to the 20 yr old first phase).

And the 1995 law called for missile frigates in phase 2.  ;)

Sorry for chiming in Sirs.
Me I am following it for 27 years. in the absence of Timawa & internet back then I am content on Manila Bulletin's frequent news update about our Armed forces to include its modernization plan during Cory's time.

Before the 1995 modernization Law, If my recollections are accurate based on news feature of the MB. It was FOIC Dumancas stint in the Navy. The Equipment acquisition program calls for the purchase of a few medium size "Patrol vessel, a few Corvette" from Bazan of Spain, & a few "missile equipped frigate" from an unnamed shipyard in France. There was an illustration of the ship design posted in the MB. sad that news clippings that I cut out are nowhere to be found.
 FVR comes in Malacanang that it was supposed to push thru but to no avail due to the 1997 FC.

To add, there was already a similar SBMS plan back then. They plan to acquire a Truck mounted Exocet missile to be deployed in different choke points in the country as it was illustrated in a display booth of the Navy during the Air, maritime defence exhibition held at Philcite CCP complex '93 or '95 maybe, & the supposed recipient of those truck mounted launcher is not the Phil. Army, but it was the Phil. Marines. ironic, the smartphone isn't born yet.

The PN already knows the requirement. There was a terms of reference published a few years ago (adroth has already posted but can't find it at the moment) with similar specs to the USCG OPC (Offshore Patrol Cutter), but not getting renewed attention. There is plenty to choose from proven platforms whether new builds or second hand.

It might be this one??

OT-There is a PAF advertisement shown in Ayala Cinema(ATC) on ASEAN Air Chiefs Conference 2017 where it briefly Highlights the PAFs Accomplishment, & video clips of its current Air Assets.
I can't help, if I'm right to notice the lone S-70A Sikorsky in the Philippine service in her new task, in a 505th Colours with a rescue hoist. It might be from our neighbours or can somebody correct me on what was shown in the advert.
Thanks & Happy Easter to everyone!
Apologise to my error.

I'm curious if her well deck can accommodate an LCAC for a possible interoperability exercise with our Allies. Though as per info from Agus their own version can accommodate up to four Combat Boat.
