FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – The Philippine Army sent a delegation to attend the 2019 Seoul International Aerospace and Defense Exhibition (ADEX) in Korea that runs from Oct.14-20, 2019.

ADEX is a biannual event where the latest aerospace and defense innovation and technology is being showcased by about 400 exhibitors from at least 30 countries. The delegation is led by the Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Macairog S. Alberto.

The Army is set to acquire more air assets in the future after the upgrade of its Army Aviation Battalion into the Army Aviation Regiment early this month. It aims to equip the regiment with attack helicopters, reconnaissance helicopters, and multi-purpose medium lift helicopters. Its engagement in ADEX and similar events is a step towards strengthening its aviation and air defense capabilities.

The highlights of the show are the indoor and outdoor exhibitions. Part of the indoor exhibitions are aircrafts, unmanned aerial vehicles, space material, weapon systems mock-up and full scale, simulator, weapon systems equipment, ground and naval weapons and equipment, and others related to airport facilities. While the outdoor exhibitions include new fighter, military transport aircraft, cargo aircraft, helicopter and civil aircraft, ground equipment such as self-propelled/mobile artillery, armoured fighting vehicle and unarmored vehicle.

Like other exhibitions in the defense industries, the ADEX also holds seminars, conferences, and symposiums aligned with the event.

“The Philippine Army is geared towards enhancing its aviation and air defense capability to address the fast evolving threats faced by the country as well as to put an end to insurgency,” Alberto said
