Philippines wants Sea Giraffe radars
The US State Department has made a determination approving a $25 million foreign military sale to the Philippines for AN/SPS-77 Sea Giraffe 3D air search radars and related equipment, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 14 December.
The Philippines government has requested two AN/SPS-77 radars, support services, including installation services, operator training, system operational testing, and documentation.
The radars will be installed on two Hamilton-class cutters acquired through the Excess Defense Articles programme. They will be used to detect and track air targets, and increase maritime domain awareness, territorial sea and Exclusive Economic Zone monitoring capabilities.
If it goes ahead the prime contractors for the sale will be VSE and Saab.
