Northrop Grumman will begin to produce and deploy its counter-improvised explosive device system after the company received approval from the U.S. Navy to go forward on the work.

The Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare jammer system works to thwart IED trigger devices, Northrop Grumman said Thursday.

Jeannie Hilger, vice president and general manager of the communications division within Northrop’s information center, said the company aims to deploy JCREW to warfighters next year and to create a system that acquires quick updates to jamming profiles.

The Naval Sea Systems Command awarded the contract to Northrop in January 2013 to build the JCREW system.
