IEE to provide CDU for JCREW I1B1
IEE will provide its 3.5-inch handheld control display unit (CDU) for Northrop Grumman's Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (JCREW) system under a contract announced on 21 June.
The display will be used for low-rate initial production of RCIED JCREW Increment 1 Block 1 (I1B1).
The JCREW I1B1 system is a software-programmable jammer that provides protection from device-triggered improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
The CDU features a TFT colour transflective LCD; snap-dome buttons with tactile feedback; a sealed nine-key keypad; and operability in -20ºC to 70ºC temperatures with heater. It is submersible to 1m for two hours. It has a dual-backlit QVGA colour display for sunlight readability and NVIS.
Tom Whinfrey, chief executive officer of IEE, said: ‘IEE consistently saves our customers time and money with field-proven products that qualify as non-developmental items with minor modifications. We’ve been working with Northrop Grumman for quite some time though the developmental stages of this critical project and are delighted to continue to the production phase.’
