CROWS Gather in Iraq: $8M More
DID has covered the CROWS remotely-operated machine gun before, its use in Iraq on up-armored HMMWVs and M1117 Guardian vehicles, and even an ongoing blog by a CROWS service technician in Iraq. His latest installment notes that they’re moving into a “train the trainer” phase.
Recon/Optical Inc. in Barrington, IL received an $8 million modification to a firm-fixed-price contract for more CROWS systems. Work will be performed in Barrington, IL and is expected to be complete by March 30, 2007. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This was a sole source contract initiated on Aug. 16, 2005 by the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command in Picatinny Arsenal, NJ (W15QKN-05-C-1209).
