SRCTEC WINS U.S. ARMY CONTRACT FOR CREW DUKE V2 UPGRADES, VALUED UP TO $700M

Syracuse, NY – The U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Life Cycle Management Command has awarded SRCTec a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with an approximate value of $700M for Counter Remote Control Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (CREW) Duke V2 system upgrades. The CREW Duke counters radio-controlled roadside bombs, or IEDs, and is currently the U.S. Army’s most widely fielded CREW system. The initial order is for $188M. SRCTec anticipates that this award will result in the addition of up to 50 production positions in 2010.

SRCTec has been providing the U.S. Army and other military services with counter-IED solutions since its inception in 2006, and their products have played a critical role in reducing the number of IEDs detonated in the field. The system’s first generation Counter-Measure Protection System was one of the U.S. Army’s Top 10 Inventions in 2005.

Mary Ann Tyszko, President and Chief Executive Officer of SRCTec, stated, “Providing products that save lives and bring our soldiers home safely is our first priority. This award allows us to continue our mission to protect the warfighter against IED threats in the global war on terror.”
