Sierra Nevada receives $205M contract for IED jammer support
by Stephen Carlson
Washington (UPI) Sep 19, 2017


Sierra Nevada Corp. is receiving a $205 million contract for support services of Special Operation Command's Dismounted Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare systems.

The contract, announced Monday by the Department of Defense, will run through Sept. 12, 2022, with work performed in Sparks, Nev., and Folsom, Calif.

The Dismounted Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare system is part of the wider Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare series of IED jammers.

The JCREW is designed to jam enemy radio-frequencies used to detonate improvised explosive devices. It comes in three different models, including a man-portable version for foot patrols, vehicle-mounted variants, and a static model for protecting key points at installations.

Improvised explosive devices have been the primary killer of U.S. and coalition forces during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Radio-detonated IEDs provide the enemy with stand-off ability to attack targets moving through the kill zone.

Potential detonation methods range from cell phones to garage door openers, requiring jammers capable of monitoring and blocking multiple signal spectrums. The JCREW is designed with open architecture allowing it to be more easily adjusted for different jamming frequencies.
