Army posts RFI for dismounted CREW system sustainment
On March 2, the U.S. Army posted a request for information for dismounted counter radio controlled improvised explosive device electronic warfare (CREW) system. White papers are due no later than 5:00pm on April 4, 2016.
The U.S. Army Contracting Command Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, is conducting this RFI to identify potential sources for the sustainment of the Dismounted CREW systems as described below on behalf of Program Executive Officer (PEO) Intelligence & Electronic Warfare & Surveillance (IEW&S), Program Manager (PM) Electronic Warfare & Cyber (EW&C), Product Director (PD) Electronic Attack (EA).
The Thor III and Baldr systems were derived from Theater Urgent Needs Statement (JUONS 0505 and 0370) requiring a dismounted counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) system for Squad and Soldier level protection. Thor III is a wearable Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) jammer that has been designed to counter an array of frequency diverse threats. The system is an expandable, active and reactive, scanning-receiver-based jammer with multiple jamming signal sources that allow it to counter multiple simultaneous threats. Baldr is a lightweight, CREW system designed for an individual Warfighter, providing the capability of increased survivability against RCIEDs.
