Lt. Gen. Arnold Bunch, the Air Force’s military deputy for acquisition, said this week the service began its effort to move electronic warfare equipment from 10 EC-130H Compass Call aircraft to a new platform after the fiscal year 2017 omnibus appropriations bill was signed May 5. “We have initiated the contract actions to start the Compass Call effort,” Bunch told reporters May 15. “We’re off and running.” Air Force spokeswoman Capt. Emily Grabowski wrote in a May 16 email.
