Northrop Grumman has received a $103 million contract modification from the US Department of Defense for Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare, Joint Crew (JCREW) systems, it was announced on 6 July.

The modification to a previously awarded contract is for Increment One Build One (I1B1) low-rate initial production of JCREW systems in support of the Expeditionary Warfare Program Office. 

JCREW is a software-programmable jammer that provides protection for dismounted soldiers, vehicles, and permanent structures from device-triggered improvised explosive devices (IEDs). 

The Joint CREW I1B1 is the first generation system that develops a common open architecture across all three capabilities and provides protection for worldwide military operations. This integrated design maximises commonality across all capabilities, reduces life cycle costs, and provides increased protection against worldwide threats. 

Work under the award is set to be completed by September 2018.
