The U.S. Marine Corps awarded a contract and initial delivery order to Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) to be the program support integrator for the Marine Corps Counter Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (CREW) program. The contract has a five-year ordering period with a total ceiling value of more than $120 million. The initial delivery order has a one-year base period of performance and a total value of more than $22 million. Work will be performed as required throughout the U.S., Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. CREW systems are vehicle-mounted, multiband radio frequency jammers designed to block enemy use of select radio frequencies and prevent the remote detonation of land mines. As the program support integrator, SAIC will support CREW systems in areas including installation, logistics, and maintenance.
