Northrop Grumman has been selected to provide the prime mission equipment for the Sierra Nevada Corporation-led AC/MC-130J Radio Frequency Countermeasure (RFCM) program.

On July 1, Sierra Nevada was awarded $700 million to supply RFCM systems to be integrated onto AC/MC-130J aircraft operated by the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).

The RFCM systems will be integrated onto AC-130J Ghostrider and MC-130J Commando II aircraft to help protect aircrews from air- and land-based enemy radar and missile systems. It is a platform-level solution with fully integrated situational awareness, precision geo-location, and radio frequency countermeasure capabilities.
