Australian efforts to enhance counter-IED capabilities are assisted by a new contract for Northrop Grumman.

Northrop Grumman is supporting counter-IED efforts in Australia under a new $329.89 million contract modification from US Naval Sea Systems Command.

The modification exercises options for Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (JCREW) Increment One Block One dismounted systems, mounted systems, mounted auxiliary kits, operational level spares, depot level spares and engineering support services.  

Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be complete by December 2022.  

The contract modification includes FMS funding of $116.49 million for Australia, where the Joint Counter-IED and Joint Counter-Explosive Hazards programmes are in progress as part of Project Land 154 Phase 4.
