Australia has requested Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (JCREW) systems from the US government, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 20 November. 

Under a foreign military sale worth an estimated $245 million Australia wants up to 850 JCREW Increment 1 Block 1 (I1B1) systems and related equipment. Of these, 533 will be vehicle mounted and 317 dismounted. 

Also included are spare and repair parts; support and test equipment; technical exchanges, publications and technical documentation; support equipment; and other related elements of logistics support.

The equipment will provide Australia increased force protection from radio-controlled improvised explosive device threats for its defence forces and vehicles. 

If the sale goes ahead the prime contractor will be Northrop Grumman.
