Three Airbus C295 medium aircraft are also in operation with the Philippine Air Force and the C295 MPA which is configured for maritime patrol operations could also attracted interest at the show. The Pleiades satellite, which offers very high resolution earth observation imagery that can be utilised for both civil and military applications will also be showcased.
