This Statement of Work (SOW) sets forth the requirements for non-personal professional engineering, technical, acquisition engineering, and management support services in the areas of engineering and technical support services, scientific/engineering analysis and studies, test and evaluation, technical data support, field engineering, integrated logistics support, configuration management, management support services, and data management support.  These services are in support of systems, subsystems, components, and equipment as well as overall management support services performed in support of tasks managed by NSWC, Crane Division. 



Crane Division is a component of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), located approximately 70 miles Southwest of Indianapolis, IN.

The Joint Special Operations Response Department (JSORD) within Crane is comprised of seven (7) Divisions, including Business Resource Management, Munitions, Small Arms Weapons, Expeditionary Systems Evaluation, Electro-Optic Technology, Operations and Assessment, and Expeditionary Systems Engineering.


JSORD delivers specialized training and support for the advanced Warrior, providing a distinct advantage in sensors and communications, mobility and maneuverability, and special munitions and weapons.  World-class test and training ranges and areas of expertise provided by the Special Missions Center include: weapons, ordnance, NVEO/lasers, radars, electronic warfare, direct fire, sniper, artillery/mortar, close-quarters combat, irregular warfare, reconstruction and stabilization, as well as homeland defense and security.  This is accomplished through:



JSORD performs a broad range of tasks for a variety of DOD and DHS customers not limited to, USSOCOM, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marine Corps, NAVSEA, NAVAIR, NAVFAC, and other federal and law enforcement agencies.  


Traditional assets and programs supported include, but are not limited to the following:


1.1.1 MH-60R & MH-60S Multi-Mission Helicopter Programs

Crane is designated as the Legacy Armed Helo (AH) IPT Lead for NAVAIR.  The AH IPT Lead manages all aspects of design, integration, fabrication, logistics, repair support, and testing of new weapon systems on the HH-60H and SH-60B helicopter platforms.  Crane provides support to the MH-60R and MH-60S efforts in the area of Engineering, Logistics, Systems, and Sensors Integration, and Lab/Ground/Flight Test support.  Crane supports PMA-299’s Armed Helicopter Program, which seeks to integrate a wide variety of new sensors and weapon systems, including the Multi-spectral Targeting System (MTS), the Hellfire family of laser guided missiles, other guided, and unguided missile and rocket systems, and future integration of solid state, high energy laser systems.  To further this effort, Crane has developed the Programmable Interface Unit (IUADP J-6594/A) for use on the Navy’s H-60 family of helicopters.  This electronic device provides compatible interface between external stores, weapons systems, and aircraft control devices.  Its ability to distribute the I/O to the point of use eliminates the requirement to reprogram the on-board mission computer and significantly reduces aircraft wiring and weight.  The PIU readily accommodates COTS systems, other military systems and represents a cost effective approach for upgrading Legacy systems and supports open architecture capabilities on military aircraft, including adaptations to unmanned vehicles for weapons and sensor integration. Helicopter Systems Integration and Crew Served Weapons
