Sierra Nevada Gets $106.9M in Dismounted Counter-IED Jammer Orders
Sierra Nevada Corp. in Sparks, NV received 2 follow-up orders to supply Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (JCREW) 3.1 dismounted systems to meet the requirements of US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dismounted JCREW systems are electronic jammers designed to prevent the initiation of radio-controlled improvised explosive devices (RCIED).
Under the original contract (N00024-09-C-6306) awarded June 2009, Sierra Nevada is to provide up to 2,500 JCREW 3.1 dismounted systems, support equipment and services, and additional long-lead time material, for a total contract value of $248.3 million.
Sierra has received 2 contract modifications on that original contract worth $106.9 million to supply parts and material for the JCREW dismounted systems…
One contract modification, awarded Sept 24/09 and worth $80.6 million, is for the supply of shipping containers and ancillary equipment and cables for 1,300 dismounted JCREW dismounted systems. Another contract modification, awarded Aug 10/09 and worth $26.3 million, is for long lead materials for 1,300 dismounted JCREW systems.
Work on both contract modifications will be performed in Sparks, NV (90%) and Rancho Cordova, CA (10%) and is expected to be finished by December 2010. The Naval Sea Systems Command at the Washington Navy Yard in DC manages the JCREW program for Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization.
