CICERO, N.Y. — The U.S. Army has awarded SRCTec, LLC a $20 million contract for updates to systems that protect soldiers against electronic-warfare (EW) threats.
Under the pact, SRCTec will work to “deliver reliability, maintainability, and improvement (RMI) kits to update the AN/VLQ-12 countermeasures set,” per a company news release.
“The AN/VLQ-12 Counter Remote Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (CREW) Duke system is a vehicle-mounted, lightweight system that neutralizes RCIED threats and gives U.S. troops a tactical advantage across the full spectrum of operations,” as described on the website of SRC Inc. Cicero–based SRCTec is the for-profit subsidiary of nonprofit SRC Inc., the former Syracuse Research Corporation.
“We are proud to continue our support of the U.S. Army by providing updates to keep these critical systems ahead of the threat,” Mary Pat Hartnett, president of SRCTec, said in the release. “The updated systems will continue to protect warfighters from EW threats.”
SRCTec also said it is “growing and looking to fill multiple positions” over the next year. Those positions include quality engineers, test engineers, reliability engineers, manufacturing engineers and manufacturing-program managers, per its release. SRC has also been running numerous TV ads lately, seeking applicants.
