The purchase of the SPYDER (Surface-to-air PYthon and DERby) will be purchased by Manila under the Revised AFP Modernization Program Horizon 2 phase by the Philippine Air Force (PAF) for its Ground-Based Air Defense System (GBADS) acquisition project.

According to the MaxDefense blog, the selection of the system has already been passed to the Department of National Defense (DND) for negotiation with Israelís Ministry of Defense International Defense Cooperation Directorate (SIBAT) and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.
