Counter IED device from BAE Systems.

BAE Systems (USA) : 18 January, 2008  (Application Story)
The US army will use jamming systems to prevent the detonation of improvised explosive devices on their Bradley combat vehicles.
BAE Systems has received a $7 million contract modification from the US Army to prepare almost 1,700 Bradley Combat Vehicles to receive electronic warfare systems capable of jamming the detonation of roadside bombs. Under this contract, the company will manufacture and install the A-Kits, which are the assemblies used to mount the system, onto 1,691 Bradleys.

The system, called the Counter Remote Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (CREW)-2, is manufactured by Syracuse Research Corporation and is designed to counter a wide range of RCIEDs.

"The installation of the CREW system on Bradley vehicles will help prevent the detonation of remote controlled improvised explosive devices," said Andy Hove, vice president of Combat Systems Programs for BAE Systems. "The ultimate goal is keeping the men and women in uniform safe."

With this modification, the contract —originally awarded in July 2007 from the Army's TACOM Life-Cycle Management Command for $7 million - is now worth $14 million.

The A-Kits will be produced at BAE Systems' York, Pennsylvania facility with installation being performed at Ft. Bliss, Texas and Ft. Stewart, Georgia. Work on the contract is expected to begin in May 2008 and continue through September 2009.
