American avionics giant Northrop Grumman announced on Tuesday that it has delivered radio frequency countermeasures system for the U.S. Special Operations Command.
NG says the ALQ-251 radio frequency countermeasure (RFCM) system has been delivered to U.S. Special Operations Command as part of an AC-130J aircraft upgrade.
As noted by the company, the operators of these large aircraft will benefit from the ability to maneuver safely in highly contested spectrum environments.
The ALQ-251 will provide superior situational awareness and protection against electronic warfare systems and radar-guided weapons in contested and congested electromagnetic spectrum environments.
The Sierra Nevada Corporation is the integrator for the AC-130J and MC-130J RFCM program.
