The GAO has dismissed the Bombardier protest of the Compass Call recapitalization as premature. The Air Force selected L3 to install the mission systems on a new aircraft, to replace the EC-130. They are allowing L3 to select the airframe, but have already said that the G550 is the optimal airframe. The Bombardier G6000, and Boeing 737 Wedgetail were ruled inadequate.

Bombardier argued that allowing L3 to select the airframe, already designated EC-37B, violates procurement rules and makes this a sole source contract. The GAO ruled that they are basing their protest on events that haven't happened yet, and dismissed it as premature without ruling on the merits of the protest.
