The Philippines Ministry of Defence (MoD) received a mobile long-range air surveillance radar on Monday, part of 4 radar systems deal with Mitusbishi of Japan.

The Department of National Defense has procured four J/TPS-P14ME mobile air surveillance radar systems from Japan valued at P5.5 billion (around $65 million), with two already operational.

The Philippines anticipates the arrival of the remaining two Japanese radar systems within two years.

The newly received radar is a mobile long-range air surveillance system, delivered this Monday. Additionally, a fixed radar system was installed at Wallace Air Station in San Fernando City, La Union, last December. Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr. attributed the delay in receiving the remaining fixed radars to the necessity of site preparation and ensuring an uninterrupted power supply.
