The deadline of submission of bids and the opening of bids, for the Palawan project, is set on November 7, 2018 at Marquez Hall, Tactical Operations Wing, Antonio Bautista Air Base, Brgy. San Miguel, Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

Meanwhile, deadline of submission of bids and the opening of bids, for the Nueva Ecija (Fort Magsaysay) project, is set on October 16 at PAF Procurement Center Conference Room, Villamor Air Base, Pasay City.

According to MaxDefense “these facilities are in anticipation of the arrival of the PAF’s Medium Altitude Long Endurance Unmanned Aerial Systems (MALE UAS), in which the PAF bought several systems consisting of the Hermes 900 and Hermes 450 from Elbit Systems of Israel.”
