Galang said it may also be used in humanitarian assistance and disaster response, assessing damage caused by disasters and calamities.

According to Ambassador Kim, "this great system will increase counterterrorism and HADR capabilities".

"Apart from the national military objectives, the PAF extends the use of the ScanEagle UAVs to different departments of the government in order to support national development activities such as anti-illegal logging, aerial survey and anti-dynamite fishing", he said.
