The Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare (JCREW) system is under development by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA).
JCREW is designed to protect soldiers on patrol, in vehicles, or in forward operating bases from advanced radio-controlled improvised explosive devices. The system provides a protective bubble around warfighters against IEDs.
JCREW 3.1 is a dismounted version, JCREW 3.2 a mounted version, and a 3.3 version (recently relabeled as the I1B1) is being developed to work in mounted, dismounted, and fixed-installation roles, using a common open architecture.
JCREW systems require rapid threat detection and response over an extremely wide Radio Frequency (RF) bandwidth.
