These Secretive US SpecOps Spy Planes Are Getting New Sensors And Anti-GPS Jamming Gear | The Drive

A recent contracting announcement has confirmed that a U.S. military spy plane that crashed in Iraq two years ago was part of small, secretive fleetsupporting American special operators around the world, including elements of the shadowy Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC. Thanks to those documents and official statements from U.S. Special Operations Command we now have a good understanding of the capabilities these aircraft offer, as well as plans to upgrade them with additional sensors and equipment, including defenses against GPS jamming.

The modified Beechcraft King Air 350ER in question, with the U.S. civil registration code N6351V, was one of U.S. Special Operations Command’s Tactical Airborne Multi-Sensor Platforms, or STAMP aircraft, according to a contracting notice the U.S. Army posted on FedBizOpps, the U.S. government’s main contracting website.
