Market Potential

The fourth installment of ADAS serves as a good resource for the Revised AFP Modernization Program (RAFPMP) which was enacted in 2012 with the goal of providing the AFP with the tools to address a wide spectrum of defense and security threats amid changing domestic and regional security needs.

The program is divided into three phases; the First Horizon (2013 to 2017) which focuses on rebuilding the AFPs capabilities in addressing ongoing counter-insurgency and internal security challenges, the Second Horizon (2018 – 2022) which puts its focus on the DND and AFP acquiring major defense equipment and capabilities, and the Third Horizon which will be rolled out from 2023 to 2027. ADAS 2022 fits into the goal of the Second Horizon of this reform.

Statement from APAC Expo Pte. Ltd. Managing Director Andrew Mariotte,

“Building a credible national defense and security capability takes many years, and since modern technologies became obsolete in a relatively short period of time, regular upgrading and modernization exercises are needed to keep pace with perpetually ongoing developments. ADAS 2022 presents an ideal platform for this renewal process.

Philippines have received the first ATMOS 2000 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzers from the Israeli company Elbit Systems. Israel has delivered the first batch of ATMOS 2000 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzers to the Philippines. With me, Lt Col Pabon- of AFP Sphere headed the 1st batch training of Atmos 200.

In May 2020, Army Recognition has reported that the Philippines Department of National Defense (DND) has released the Notice to Proceed (NTP) for the acquisition of 2 batteries of Elbit Soltam ATMOS 155mm/52cal Self-Propelled Howitzer systems for the Philippine Army under the service’s 155mm Howitzer, Self-Propelled System Acquisition Project.
