IEE, manufacturer of enhanced displays for military and industrial applications, was awarded a contract for a 3.5-inch hand-held CDU used in the Northrop Grumman Joint Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (JCREW) Increment 1 Block 1 (I1B1). IEE’s CDU will be used in the low-rate initial production of this jammer system.
Developed for U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command, (NAVSEA), JCREW I1B1 systems are software-programmable jammers that provide protection from device-triggered improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
EE is known for their array of hand-held control display units (HH CDU’s) designed to control military equipment ranging from radios to air-defense systems to IED jammers. Northrop Grumman selected a 3.5-inch microprocessor-based CDU with a dual backlit QVGA color LCD display for sunlight readability and NVIS, along with a sealed 9-key keypad.
