Northrop Grumman Corporation Awarded Full-Rate JCREW Production Contract

Introduction:

The U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) has awarded Northrop Grumman Corporation  a $57.7 million contract for full-rate production of the Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (JCREW) Increment One Build One Systems.

Features:

The contract includes options which if exercised would bring the total value to $505 million. Northrop Grumman will produce the systems in San Diego and complete the work by August 2022.

JCREW systems are software-programmable jammers that provide protection from device-triggered improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Northrop Grumman developed dismounted, mounted and fixed-site variants to protect warfighters on foot, vehicles and permanent structures.

The Increment One Build One system uses an open architecture integrated design to maximize commonality across the variants, reducing life-cycle costs and providing increased protection against worldwide threats. JCREW systems are also in use today providing protection from unmanned airborne systems (UAS) in support of the growing counter-UAS mission. This demonstrated multi-mission capability highlights the programmability and versatility of these advanced electronic warfare systems.

Specifications:

Name Northrop Grumman Corporation
Location San Diego, USA
Type Production Of JCREW
Estimated Cost $57.7 million
