US seeks airborne rescue and recovery for SOF in Yemen | Jane’s 360

The US military is looking for contractors to provide personnel recovery, as well as airborne casualty and medical evacuation services, for special forces personnel operating in and around Yemen.

The United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) issued a request for information (RFI) on 30 April for third parties that are capable of undertaking aircraft- and helicopter-based personnel recovery, casualty evacuation (CASEVAC), and medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) duties within the Central Command (CENTCOM) area of responsibility (AOR) in general, and within Yemen in particular.

“Market research is being conducted to identify air carriers with fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft capable of providing airlift, MEDEVAC, and CASEVAC support within the CENTCOM AOR primarily within Yemen. The Yemen AOR for this requirement is defined as [but not limited to] the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate Oman, Republic of Djibouti, United Arab Emirates, State of Qatar, Kingdom of Bahrain, and locations supporting Yemen Joint Special Operations Area [JSOA],” the solicitation, which was issued on behalf of Special Operations Command Forward – Yemen, said.
