Military looking for drone jammers
The Department of National Defense has reopened the bidding for the P33.75-million supply contract for antidrone equipment following a slight alteration on the specifics of the motorcycle that will be used to carry the device.
Defense Assistant Secretary Manuel Ramos, chair of the bids and awards committee, said the military needed nine sets of shoulder-fired directional jammers under the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program.
“Delivery of the goods is required not later than 120 calendar days from the receipt of contract and notice to proceed,” Ramos said.
