Northrop Grumman continues JCREW work
Northrop Grumman has received a $33.91 million contract modification from US Naval Sea Systems Command, for continued work on Increment One Block One systems in the Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (JCREW) programme.
The company will exercise options for engineering support services, depot support services and other direct costs.
Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be completed by September 2021.
JCREW is a software-programmable jammer that provides protection from device-triggered IEDs. There are three variants: dismounted (carried in a backpack - pictured), mounted (on a vehicle) and fixed (for static locations such as bases).
Northrop Grumman received a full-rate production contract for JCREW in September 2017. The company has developed dismounted, mounted and fixed-site variants to protect soldiers on foot, vehicles and permanent structures.
