NEWTOWN, Conn. -- As the IED threat is far from over -- and because U.S. Army personnel are still vulnerable to such attacks -- the steady production and support of many variants under the service's Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (JCREW) program will continue.

Currently, multiple contractors are producing numerous versions of the jammers tailored to specific and sometimes limited applications. For the most part, however, JCREW jammers will be produced well into the next decade to meet the demand for vehicle and dismounted soldier protection.

In March 2016, Sierra Nevada won a two-year $30.9 million contract for procurement and support of the PLT-5 countermeasures system. The PLT-5 is a man-portable system that supports the Joint Service Explosive Ordnance Disposal JCREW program.

In September 2017, Northrop Grumman received a $267.6 million contract for its JCREW Increment 1 Block 1 version systems. Work for this order is expected to be completed in 2022.
