Sierra Nevada Corp. has received a five-year, $205 million sole-source contract from Special Operations Command to help operate electronic warfare technology against improvised explosive devices, the Defense Department said Friday.

Sustainment and engineering work will support Socom's family of Dismounted Counter Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device Electronic Warfare Systems, according to an April 10 contracting notice on FedBizOpps. SNC will also help the command conduct procurements for new CREW systems.

Socom uses the company's Modi and Thor II systems for joint explosive ordnance disposal missions, among others.

Work will take place in Folsom, Calif. and Sparks, Nev. through up to Sept. 12, 2022.
