Summary
We have completed our review of the Department of Defense's (DOD) acquisition plans for the ALE-5O towed decoy system and the Radio Frequency Countermeasures System (RFCM), which includes a more advanced towed decoy. The RFCM is part of the Integrated Defensive Electronics Countermeasures System being developed for some Navy and Air Force aircraft. Our objective was to determine whether towed decoys could improve the survivability of these aircraft. In addition, because Congress has expressed concern for F/A-18C/D survivability, we are issuing this report to bring to your attention the opportunity towed decoy systems offer to potentially enhance survivability of the F/A-18C/D
