The two sides shared techniques in sea reconnaissance that could come in handy as Manila shores up its capabilities to patrol its maritime territories, a Philippine naval officer said.

The joint naval exercises, now in its 19th year, are aimed at improving cooperation between the two allies in maintaining regional maritime security, addressing trafficking and smuggling, and responding to disasters.

US forces demonstrated the use of their unmanned aerial system, which can be used for sea surveillance and convoy, and tracking target positions.

They said a similar system was used before in helping to capture a leader from the extremist Abu Sayyaf Group.

The Kevlar radio-controlled plane, weighing 6 kilos, can fly up to 10,000 feet at a speed of 40 nautical miles.

Images taken by a camera inside the unit can be monitored by squadron members on the boat. It is also capable of capturing infrared images.

"The unmanned aerial vehicle will be a very very important tool in our operations in safeguarding the entire maritime territories," public affairs officer for the Philippine Navy, Lieutenant Junior Grade Rommel Rodriguez said.

It is quite nice to see a ship like this flies the Philippine Flag!  :beer:
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

The Naval Forces Northern Luzon (Navfornol), however, barred the media from covering the actual naval maneuver and directed journalists instead to Subic to cover their land-based joint civic action activities as well as a concert.

Good thing there is media blackout on the maneuver. Sometimes media are irresponsible in reporting specially regarding our national security.
