Northrop Grumman has won $96.5 million modification to a previously awarded contract to exercise options for the Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare Increment One Block One systems full-rate production in support of the Expeditionary Warfare Program Office. 

This option exercise is for Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (CREW) systems that provide combat troops protection against radio-controlled improvised explosive devices (RCIEDs), the US department of defense said in a statement Friday.

CREW systems are designed to provide protection for foot soldiers, vehicles and permanent structures. The Joint CREW Increment One Block One system 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 maximizes commonality across all capabilities, reduces life cycle costs and provides increased protection against worldwide threats.  Work is expected to be completed by April 2020.
