Contract Expected To Generate Approximately $21 Million In
Goodrich Corporation has been
awarded a contract by Lear Siegler, Inc. for initial production
quantities of laser threat warning systems for use on US Army
Blackhawk and Chinook helicopters. This option is the first
installment of a multi-year contract in support of the US Army. The
contract is expected to generate approximately $21 million in
original equipment sales for Goodrich over 3 years, with first
deliveries beginning in 2006.
According to Goodrich Electro-Optical Systems Vice President and
General Manager, David Olson, "Goodrich is pleased to provide our
service men and women with our advanced laser warning system as a
key enhancement to their battlefield security portfolio. This new
product continues a 30-year heritage of excellence in providing for
US Army force protection."
The new AN/AVR-2B laser threat warning system design is the next
generation of existing Goodrich aircraft survivability equipment,
which has been successfully deployed on over 1,600 helicopters,
including those involved in recent sorties in Iraq.
Smaller and 50% lighter than previous generation systems, the
all-weather AN/AVR-2B provides extreme reliability and accuracy in
detecting known laser threats.
Goodrich has been a supplier of aviation survivability equipment
for over 30 years. The company's Electro-Optical Systems business,
based in Danbury, Conn., maintains the only production line for US
Army laser warning systems in the United States.
