US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) on 1 July awarded Sierra Nevada Corporation a $700 million contract  for the development and procurement of Radio Frequency Countermeasure (RFCM) systems.

The systems will be integrated onto AC-130J Ghostrider (pictured) and MC-130J Commando II tanker aircraft operated by USAF Special Operations Command, to help protect aircrew from air- and land-based enemy radar and missile systems.

The deal includes RFCM system engineering services, logistics support and spare parts.

BAE Systems was the previous RFCM system provider for the AC-130J and MC-130J, having been awarded a contract in January 2016.
