Details of £1.1bn worth of defence spending are to be unveiled by the prime minister later.
It is due to include cash for drones, UK special forces and intelligence gathering to tackle global terrorism.
David Cameron is due to make the announcement at the Farnborough International Air Show.
He is expected to say funds for "vital" Ministry of Defence programmes have been found as a result of austerity measures.
But writing in the Daily Telegraph, the prime minister said the government had been fixing the "mess" left by the previous government.
And pointing to how "the threats we face have changed utterly in 30 years", he said the UK "cannot defend the realm from the white cliffs of Dover".
He said it was a "national necessity" to have "modern, technological, advanced and flexible armed forces" to advance British interests.
